Scrapbook retreat!

What an amazing weekend that was!  
I haven't quite come back to reality!  I attended my second ever scrapbooking retreat only 4 months after attending my first - I feel so lucky! 
This one was organized by the very lovely Lisa and Kristy at Scrapbook Steals.
If you haven't seen the store yet, you really must check it out and sign up for daily emails, they have daily deals that are quite literally a steal! 
We left on Friday morning and met up with the rest of the scrappers at the hotel to then be taken to the fabulous Scrapbook Steal Network store and warehouse in Salt Lake City. 
We got to shop (lots of delicious and hugely discounted goodies) and then tour the warehouse and meet the lovely people who own and work there!
After lunch we had 3 back to back classes, Fancy Pants with Dan, Authentique with Melodee and Teresa Collins.  Incredibly, we actually had Teresa Collins teach the class, she is one amazing lady.  I swear she could have told us to stick price tags on a paper bag and we would have still loved the class!  Anyway, she didn't, she gave us a beautiful Christmas layout to create and then offered us another freebie to work on later!  I chose a Christmas album that I can't wait to start on!
The above layout came from a My Mind's Eye pack called Blackbird. KC from My Minds Eye came along to the retreat and challenged us to finish a layout by Monday so here it is!
I will have lots more to share from the retreat soon, some are not quite complete yet!!!

Hope you all had just as fabulous weekend, thanks for dropping in!
