Retreat Recap #1

Hellooooo......I am just back from our annual President's Weekend Scrappin' Retreat and feeling relaxed and rejuvenated!  Hanging out with my friends, laughin', scrappin', and basically havin' a great time is definitely what I needed!

I also got tons of things done!  Not just scrapping either....we had a great time looking through catalogs and making the first orders for my new online store, Scrap Happy Deals....the website will be up and running as soon as those first orders arrive and can be uploaded!  I don't think I've mentioned it here on my blog yet..but I am so excited to finally be taking those first steps to being a small business owner.  It has been a long time coming and I'm excited and nervous all at the same time! In addition to shopping for the online store, I am taking special orders from my customers too! 

How is the store going to work?  Well, we will be carrying mostly collection kits and embellishments from the most popular current releases.  So, right now, we are ordering Authentique, October Afternoon, Heidi Swapp, Pink Paislee, Lily Bee, Echo Park and more!  Do you know what makes it even better?  It is all 20% retail all the time!  What's better than getting brand new, just released product at a discount?  I agree, nothing! So, if you are interested in becoming one of my shoppers, drop me an email (scraphappydeals@comcast.net) and I will add you to our facebook group and let you know how to go about making a special order!  Just let me know you are one of my blog followers!

Okay, back to the weekend! 

I only had a couple pieces of this line to work with for samples - I can't wait to get my hands on the whole line!



It's fantastic line for more than just boys - this is my favorite piece of paper:


Authentique is another new company that I loved playing with this weekend!  They had two fabulous new collections to drool over!












Love, love, love the colors in this line!  Definitely for more than just birthday layouts and cards!

I will be back in a day or two with more of my weekend creations to share --- remember if you want to place an individual order with me for new winter CHA products, leave me a message on Facebook or send me an email and I will tell you all about it!
