Scrumptious Scrapbook Retreats

Archive for March 2010

Sheri Miller won a $10 Gift Certificate to Whimzee’s Scrapbook Studio and Tanya Wilcox won a $10 Gift Certificate to A Joy Forever Scrapbook Store by entering their names in the Scrumptious Scrapbook Retreats drawing box in those stores. At Whimzee’s you will find the box at the front desk on the ledge in front of the cash register. At A Joy Forever on Fuller Road you will find the box in the front of the store by turning right as you enter the store and going over by the templates. It is sitting on a cabinet. If you are shopping at A Joy Forever in Gresham, the box is on the front counter just as you walk in. Congratulations ladies! Happy shopping!


It is unanimous that the Griffin Center is scrapbook heaven! We had a great time last weekend, scrapping to our hearts’ content with plenty of table space and good light and scrumptious food.

“This is my first retreat. This has been so much better than I had visualized. I thought that I would come just one time to join my daughter…NOW, I would like to come 2 – 3 times per year!” This is the ecstatic comment of Brenda Gunderson, who discovered at the March Scrumptious Scrapbook Retreat, that scrapbook retreats are great way to spend time with her daughter, get her pages completed and to meet many nice people.

A good time was had by all! Hope you’ll join us for the April retreat at the Griffin Center!

Enjoying Scrumptious Food

Once again, the Roasted Vegetable sandwiches for lunch and the Corn & Black Bean Salsa were a big hit. The recipes are archived on this page. And the Tuxedo Cake was a big hit, but next time we will eat it earlier in the day so the chocolate doesn’t keep us awake all night!

You Say a Waterfall Card is EASY?!

Patty Loynd reassured us that making a Waterfall card is easy. It only looks complicated.

Great news! Megan Ellis, Kelleen Bernard, and Tia Ossenkop won $10.00 gift certificates to A Joy Forever Scrapbook Store in Portland and Gresham in the month of January and February!

How did they win? They drove to the store, located the Scrumptious Scrapbook Retreats drawing box, filled out an entry form and put it in the box.  Just that easy! And their names were drawn!

Happy shopping ladies courtesy of Scrumptious Scrapbook Retreats!
