Retreat Results

I went to a scrapbooking retreat almost two weeks ago! I had a fabulous time and actually got quite a bit done. I must say I was pleased with my accomplishment. Cathy had gotten in several new papers and wanted some samples for the store so that was my jump start!
These papers and embellishments are from Reminisce. These are some pics of Doyle and his brother Doren playing golf at Mitchell Resort and RV Park where we have the retreats.

These papers and embellishments are from Reminisce also. These are pics of my niece Addison who is in the Marines. I must admit I "stole" these pics off her facebook to make this layout.

More Reminisce papers and embellishments. When I saw these papers I knew just what pictures I wanted to use! These are some pics I took with my phone camera making faces that I thought worked perfectly!

Easter papers and stickers from Reminisce. These were last years pics of Easter.

Some more Reminisce Easter.
I just love this picture of Kennedy and her friend Bailey having an egg hunt at "Mother's Day Out". I appreciate that Bailey's Mom got this picture! This is also from the Reminisce Easter Collection.

This is Authentique's Easter Collection.

These papers are from Echo Park. Vanessa got these pics for me of Kennedy's first day going back to Mother's Day Out. She calls it school. She looks so grown up here wearing her backpack and carrying her nap mat!

I still managed to take a little adventure while at the park. And was it an adventure! Look what I saw:

Yep....a coyote! Now I had a 75-300mm lens on my camera so he appears closer than he was. I saw him before he saw me. This is when he first noticed me.
This is what he did after he saw me. I was relieved that he ran but was a little unnerved when I saw movement out of the corner of my eye and realized that he had a companion that was closer to me than the other one was! Thankfully they both scurried off in the woods.

You know I'm going to watch the sunset. Loved how the clouds looked.
View over the tank. 
We are so dry. This is a huge tank...the park calls it a lake but it is slowly drying up. See how there are areas of land showing up where there should be water?
Just beautiful!

Have a good one!


  1. Wow! Lots of great layouts! Glad you accomplished so much at the retreat and love your scenic photos!
