A Scrapaway Weekend Primer

This is Beth.
Beth is the queen of scrapbook retreats.
Beth invited Loni to run away with her new friends and scrapbook all weekend in a hotel.
Loni said YES!
Wherever Beth goes, the party is there.
Beth will make you laugh.
Everyone loves Beth, even the Pope.

This is Nanette.
Nanette is wearing the Helmet of Triumph.
When someone finishes a page, Beth gives them the Helmet of Triumph to wear and they could win a prize!
What prize will Nanette pick?
This is Zumba.
Suzy is leading Zumba.
Zumba is fun to watch.
Loni prefers to sweat alone.
Loni takes pictures.
This is the Pope Room at Buca di Beppo.
Left to Right: Becky, Suzy, Joann, Jennifer, Beth, Helen, Vicky, Sara Jane, Nanette and Loni.
We like Italian food :)
Becky is nervous about the naked cherubs on the ceiling.

This is Helen's favorite page she completed.
Helen's son likes to play Angry Birds.
Helen loves her son and scrapbooking.
Everyone is a winner!

Here is the whole gang at the hotel.
We love the Hampton Inn at the SLC Airport!

This is Jennifer (center) who brought her sisters for the first time (Joann and Suzy)
We hope they come next year, too!

This is Joann.
It is Joann's birthday!
Happy Birthday Joann!
Joann's mom sends a special candle.
What will happen to all our scrapbook supplies if the sprinklers come on?
Oh no! Blow out the singing spinning candle, Joann!

Loni finishes a WHOLE SCRAPBOOK in My Digital Studio while she is at Beth's retreat.
Would you like to see Loni's scrapbook?
Loni will print her scrapbook and bring it to her April Stampin' Up! parties!

Friendship, Freshly Made

Have you ever considered the value of friendships?  I thought it was interesting that it has been proven that healthy friendships and social interaction has been linked to a 50% better survival rate while being lonely could be as fatal as smoking 15 cigarettes a day!

Real friendship takes effort and time. Sometimes we get too busy to nurture our friendships and it is easy to let our frantic lifestyle keep us from reaching out to those we love. I know I have been guilty of this! When was the last time you took time to do something fun with (or for) a friend whom you cherish? Today I want to encourage you to do some small act of service that will strengthen a friendship, whether it be to send a card just to say "Hi", schedule a lunch date, drop off a cupcake to a friend or simply pick up the phone and have a good chat with someone you haven't visited with for a while! I will be sending a friend the card I created using a color challenge and the Freshly Made Sketch #24:
 The colors came from a challenge I shared with my Stampin' Family in February:

Speaking of fun things to do with friends...I am holding a Stamp-a-Stack card class on Saturday, March 10th at 10 am. in Spanish Fork! Everything will be cut and prepared for you to come and be creative: You'll make 6 cards for $10 (2 each of 3 different designs). If you want MORE than a short stack of cards, you can tell me that you want to create 2 (or more) stacks of cards when you register! If you register with an adult friend I haven't met, you'll get a FREE GIFT! The only things you need to bring are scissors, adhesive (SNAIL adhesive recommended) and a bone folder (if you have one). Make sure to label all your tools with your name or initials :)

Call me to reserve a spot by March 7th: 801-376-8685
