Who doesn't love a retreat?

Well I'm not sure that everyone would warm to the retreats that I go on, but who can argue with getting away for a few days with nothing to do except whatever you want.

Last Friday evening after Cal got home, I traveled 20 minutes up the road .......but it really felt like a world away.

"Our Retreat" consisted of 20 scrapbookers camped out at the Uniting Church Conference Centre in Elanora Heights sharing a weekend of laughter, craft, food and well as a bit of R&R, however each individual saw it.

Long story short, I had such a lovely time. I quietly read whilst reading, I scrapped, I laughed, I relaxed, I ate wonderful food, I took in the beautiful scenery. It was exactly what I needed to re-energize and reboot.

And anyone who's been away with me scrapping knows that I actually don't get much scrapping done. I use the time to rest. But this time, I actually got a few layouts done!! I thought I'd share. The photos aren't crash hot. It didn't matter how I tried to take the photos, they looked a little odd. And When I attempted to scan and stitch the just wasn't working for me.

So here are my weekend creations.

Do you love a crafting retreat??? Care to share your favourite experience?

Thank you. The best part of the retreat was spending time with like-minding people and making some wonderful connections.
