Ahhhhhh, the retreat… already a week gone, and it feels like a distant memory, but what fun memories they are.

Many disasters, many laughs, giggles, bottles of wine, and hot-tubbing!
We arrived Friday with a mission to unpack, and jump in the hot tub.  Shop took me HOURS to set up, can’t believe there is so much stuff (and 4 carfuls too!) if mum hadn’t been there, we wouldn’t have eaten till 2am, and then the hot tub was closed on Fridays!! aaahhhhh  Also discovered just how much stash 26 scrapbookers bring to a retreat, and that the space wasn’t big enough! lol
I think we all managed to muck in together and get things going, lots of laughs and fun all round, the shop was ‘dented’ shall we say – thanks ladies, means I can get new goodies in now!
Definitely had some ‘moments’ during the course of the retreat…. 
The ‘frog’ (enough said there just in case Nicola reads this!)
The bum picture
The charlies angels picture and running round in the garden in our swimsuits
The light exploding
The Garlic Baguette picture
And all the smutty and filty talk that you can’t say in front of the kids!!
I’m sure someone did some scrapping over the weekend!!  lol!  It wasn’t me, I didn’t do anything but glue down a piece of paper!
The winners of our fantastic challenges were Nicola for the cardstock only challenge with her fantastic Robot layout, Elaine for the ‘everyday’ LO with the layout of her son’s baked bean challenge and the superstar winner of the name badge was Pat, who altered a cotton bud case into a fabulous shaker name badge with flourescent tulle around it!
I really did have the most fantastic time, for a first ever run and visited retreat, there were niggle which we will iron out for the next retreat (and there will be several next year now, I loved it that much!) and hope to see new and old faces alike at them!
If you’d like to see any piccies, I haven’t got them on this PC, but pop across to Rosies blog, Mums blog, Claires blog and there are some on there.  Or on our UKS social group if you can find it!
I’ll put them all on a picasa album to link to here as soon as I’m on the other ‘pooter.
Loves you girlies, had the best time, and can’t wait to see you all again!
