a royal scrap retreat

yes, i've been scrapbooking and i owe it all to a beach retreat!
my friend Jen organized this Spring retreat in a Royal Wedding theme

Our friend Cheryl had recently returned from England and she made us Royal goodie boxes

we ate a lot of junk....i bet the reason i get some many pages done on Retreats is because i live on Coke Zero and M&M's....

we had a Royal Toast

Even the Queen, Her Royal Highness, made an appearance

It was a fun weekend! If you are needing to make a serious dent in your scrapbooking, I recommend going on a retreat. Find other people who are committed to finishing an album project or who just like to get together and be creative. It helps if they like caffeine and chocolate. It helps if they don't mind if you stay up until 3 or 4 a.m.  It helps if you have an amazing friend who organizes these things (she even brought themed movies...all the movies we 'watched' that weekend had a Love Story theme to go with the Royal Wedding).

Jen has put together many retreats with themes from Love Boat, Big Wig, etc... I can't wait to see what she comes up with next! 

Happy Scrappin',
DL :)
