About Me . . .

Standard

We had such a nice time at the annual Fall Retreat last weekend! Meet some wonderful new friends and of course, enjoyed catching up with old friends. On the way home, Kim and I were sharing and trying to remember all that we learned about each of our campers. Then we got to thinking it might be nice to have a way to remember everyone’s “story” … so we decided to host a SpeedScrap for the group tonight.

The assignment: design a layout that tells the viewer About you. We gave out directions … one step at a time … every ten minutes. Those who could make it to the SS have posted their designs to the event’s photo album on our new Facebook Fan Page. Here’s my page:

Freebies for our Fall Retreat!

Standard

So … I’ll admit it! I’m a DigiScrapAholic!  I love everything about digital scrapbooking!!! And one of my many favorite sites lately is www.digital-crea.fr (thanks to Judy!) On a recent shopping trip there, I somehow managed to re-purchased three kits! OOPS!  Thought about asking the store if I could trade them for something else, but then thought,

“Hum…they could be FUN as prizes at camp! Maybe ramp up our challenges this fall and see who rises to the occassion?”

So … what do you think? Would YOU like to win one of these kits? You’ll want to get your registration in early for the Fall 2009 DigiChick Retreat … we already have all but 3 spots filled!

The first kit is a beautiful kit The Blue Side Of My Soul by Bellisae Designs.

– 123 elements:
staples,angel wings, brads, brushes, frames(paper,epoxy,metal), stitches, template, doodles(metal,epoxy,paper), leaves(natural,paper,metal), flowers(natural,paper,metal), stars,moons, glitter, music notes, clouds, butterflies, pearls, ribbons, strings, meshes, bubbles, photo masks, bows, sparkles.

Stay tuned! I’ll be posting the information on the other two kits soon!  Don’t forget to sign up for camp!

DigiChicks Fall Retreat – 2009

Standard

Today Kim and I are attending the Des Moines Laptop Crop this weekend. Several of our DigiChicks are here as well AND we’ve added FOUR new DigiChicks to the group! We all decided to pose for a photo so it could be posted and hopefully serve as a motivator to get the rest of you to sign up early this year!

We are going to change things a bit this year! Everyone who’s registered and paid-up by Sept 1 will be getting copies of the camp tutorials. You will have plenty of time to attempt to complete the templates before camp, giving you a chance to give them a try before you get there. At camp, we will still go step-by-step through the tutorials together and covering all questions you might have.  Tips & Tricks sheets will be shared early as well.
