Kathie N.

Donna B.

Kathie & Donna attended our very first Scrumptious Scrapbook Retreat in October of  2009 and our 1st Anniversary Retreat in October of 2010 and here they are celebrating our 2nd Anniversary! Thank you Kathie & Donna for your great support!

Laurie K.

When Laurie K. said that she “needed” a Christmas Tree for her layout, everyone in the room started checking their die cut cartridges to see if they could help her.  We love to help each other find the “perfect” embellishement!

Aileen C.

Aileen C. is such an avid photographer, she may have to use two albums for one vacation!

Jessica H.

Wendy H.

Jessica and Wendy were making wonderful decorations and party accessories for an upcoming daughter’s birthday party. It made us all want to go to the party!

Donna H.

Donna H. is one of our regular scrappers who told us that her sister, who is engaged in a battle with cancer, asked Donna to help her assemble scrapbooks for each of her children.  As you know it takes many many hours to complete one scrapbook. So we put out a call to the other retreat attendees for help. As a result Donna has received more than 20 two page layouts to get them started.

Patty L.

Patty L. is one of the scrappers who donated to Donna H. quite a few completed layouts. Thank you Patty!

Mary S.

Mary S. is our number one ambassador at spreading the word about Scrumptious Scrapbook Retreats. If you have met Mary, she has probably invited you to come!!  It is a great way to make new friends and rejuvenate yourself from daily stresses. Thank you Mary!

Valerie G.

Valerie G. attended for the first time and was delighted to use the border punches. She found many creative ways to use them on her scrapbook pages. Creating books for  3 children ,  she was very productive and extolls the virtue of a scrapbook retreat to help you really get it done.

Muffett W.

Muffett is always interested in new techniques and creates beautiful pages.  She thinks that scrapbook retreats are one of the best things about retirement!

Bailey, our youngest helper, made sure that the ice in the cooler was tasty and cold!

Ileah serenaded us while she helped in the kitchen!
