Weekend Retreat

Hello friends!
This past weekend I was at a scrapbooking retreat.
3 days filled with nothing but talking and creating!



One of the things I created while there was altering this composition notebook in a sweet vintage school theme.
All scrapbook paper is by October Afternoon.





On the inside cover is a decorative envelope for photos and ephemera.





I love this argyle pattern for the back of the book.





This journal is now listed here in our etsy shop.

Here is a photo of my scrap table.




It was fun to spread out all my stuff and create surrounded by so many creative women. It was fun to just walk around and see what others were creating!





This is everything I brought with me. Does it look like a lot?
This is less than half of what most ladies brought. Most had at least 3 trips with the cart. One lady even brought a uhaul!



It is amazing how the whole room is a sea of supplies!
It was a lot of fun and I got a lot creating done!




I wish you a very lovely day, Lindsey
