Oh what an amazing weekend!!!!! This year's Scrapbook Your Heart Alberta-wide retreat was simply the BEST ONE YET!!!!! Our amazing team (Kandi Permann, Christine Collier, Christy Riopel, myelf and guest instructor Michelle Zemlak) spared nothing in making this retreat all we had hoped for!
Just under 80 ladies from all across Alberta joined together for this weekend at Camp Caroline in central Alberta! The camp has acres of natural forest, streams and walking paths... perfect surroundings for inspirational crafting... indoors AND outdoors!!
Our guest instructor Michelle Zemlak guided us through some deliciously layered layouts!! Her store The Hope Chest is a MUST SEE so if you're ever in the Delburne area... it is soooooo worth taking the time out for a visit!!! And we had some fun with a photo class and an all-day project designed by Christy Riopel that had the ladies painting, smooshing, glittering, beading and PLAYING to create their own unique "Joy Journals!!" Here's a page from mine of my "soul sistas"!!! Notice I've left some space for some new ones to enter my life down the road :)
The purpose of this weekend is far deeper than simply scrapbooking! Yes, it is a girlfriends' get-away...
And YES, we pamper and treat with things like a midnight Bernard Callebaut chocolate fondue!! But it is also so much more!!!
We dig deeper into the areas of life that many times get neglected, but desperately need our attention... our desire is to uplift and support one another through those times in life when it's most needed.... and on top of it all, to pamper, encourage and treat and love on each special woman that attends...
is a weekend retreat of life changing fun for women!
Scrapbook Your Heart takes place nestled in a peaceful location in central Alberta with inspiring creation all around. This retreat is offered to woman who are anxious to:
- meaningfully and artfully explore matters of the heart
- be pampered and feel special about who they are
- share their life experiences in a safe environment
- dig deep to discover new truths about themselves
- laugh, cry, play, create, share, learn and grow together
And we'd LOVE to have you join us next year in May 2011!!!
