Faithful readers will be the first to know about Scrapbook Generation's newest venture. Karin and I are excited to announce that the plans are final for our first weekend retreat.

Friday, September 29 through Sunday, October 1, we will be hosting a "marathon" scrapbooking weekend in Branson. The location will be the Legacy area of Thousand Hills Golf Resort, located just a couple of blocks from the Grand Palace, right off the 76 strip.

Scrapbooking will be held in the Legacy meeting room, which has great lighting, great views, plenty of room, and even a comfy couch to curl up on during break time. When you aren't scrapbooking, you'll be staying in a gorgeous three-bedroom condo which will house up to 6 people. Each condo has a dining area, a complete kitchen, living room, and three private bedrooms, each with its own TV and bathroom. Did I forget the balconies and patios? Actually the rooms are so nice that you may not want to leave to scrapbook!

All-inclusive prices for the weekend are $275 per person for one in a condo bedroom, and $245 per person for two in a condo bedroom. This price includes all meals and snacks and lodging. A variety of classes will be available for an additional charge. Because we want you to feel totally pampered, each person will leave with prizes of scrapbooking products valued at least $50 or more!

A non-refundable deposit of $50 is due when you sign up. The deposit must be made by June 15, and we expect the event to fill up quickly. You can stop by Scrapbook Generation to pay, or we will accept credit cards by phone. Be prepared to let us know who you will be sharing a bedroom with, or even the entire condo, if you can put a bigger group together!

Call us at 417-886-0440 if you need more information.
