Focused Scrapbooking?

 In late May, my scrapbooking-partner-in-crime (above) accompanied me to another Scraptacular Getaways weekend retreat.  It was especially difficult getting ready for this one, with our kitchen remodel in full swing and all!  But I managed to throw some supplies in my bag and off we went to scrap our brains out!  My brain had trouble shifting gears from construction mayhem at home to creative placement of paper & photos.  So I got a one hour massage from the massage therapist who was there to help us relax!  It was a fun getaway, but I was not very productive this year - only a couple of pages got done this year.
 I entered this layout of my daughter in the snow in the Layout Contest, but didn't win :(

Rebecca produced some really beautiful layouts!  She is really a talented scrapbooker and I am amazed and in awe of the gorgeous layouts she puts together!

I love the clusters of embellishments on her pages! Another year will go by before we get to go again, but it is always such fun - even though we hardly sleep and mostly eat M&M's and drink a lot of caffeine to stay awake!!  Check out Scraptacular Getaways website to see more about their great scrap retreats!
