Stampin’ Retreat 2018 …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you have a wonderful weekend full of fun and friendship, as that was my blessing this weekend! I hosted my Annual Spring Stampin’ Retreat and although there was a little rain here and there on Friday we did just fine!!

I would like to Congratulate my friend and former co-worker Arielle on her marriage to Josh this past Saturday ❤ Arielle, her mother Olivia and sister Abby have all joined us on several retreats, so I was sorry to miss her big day. I wish her all God’s blessings and a lifetime of happiness. All your retreat friends say “Congratulations” as well 🙂

After everyone arrives and settles in to their rooms, we gather for dinner. This time we had a picnic; Sloppy Joes, Potato Salad, 7 Layer Salad, Jello Salad, assorted Chips!

Dessert comes later, however they had a “Welcome” snack of popcorns in their room when they arrived.  Once we are done eating we head out to our stamping room and settle in to get some stamping done!

As they found a seat … they were greeted by cute little hand stamped gift filled with stampin’ embellishments and a snack!

Here is a closer look … You will see the “NEW” colored pearls that you will find in the “Share What You Love” Product Suite!

I created these with the “Apron of Love” Bundle and the “Crafting Forever” stamp set… the Stampin’ Up! Logo was cut from the Grid Paper  and embellished with the Enamel Shapes!! They turned out so cute and who wouldn’t like their embellishments tucked in them 🙂

Thank you for checking back in with me today. Join me tomorrow for some card samples and additional happenings at retreat. Here is a picture from our retreat as we said goodnight on Friday …

 

Have a wonderful day!
