I can't believe today is the last day of 2013.  This year has absolutely flown by.  We have traveled this year like never before and had some amazing experiences with old and new friends that will always be treasured. I hope your 2013 has been just as good or better and your are ready for a fantastic 2014.

Gifts, Clearance and another Great Retreat

It's hard to believe we have been back from our retreat for a couple weeks already.  I feel like I am living life in the fast lane - the Indy 500 fast lane and am ready for a pit stop.  Praise the Lord for our pit stop at Grand Oaks - it was wonderful.  I'm ready for another.  :)  Speaking of another, we have been invited to return May 1st - 4th for another fabulous scrapbook and craft filled weekend.  The cost is $300 and includes logging, all meals, a workshop each day and crafting galore!  If you are interested in joining me, please let me know asapI am offering those who did not attend in November first dibs to give everyone a change but will open it up to everyone January 1st so if you want to go, you need to let me know.

In my last post I showed you our weekend commemorative layout we created.  As you could see, our theme paper was the Laughing Lola papers. To continue to the with our theme, we created these beautiful canvas albums.  They were a little different then what we normally create during our weekend but were a big hit.  I just love it!  They make a great Christmas gift too!
