Scrapbook Generation's weekend retreat now has a name...It's All About Memories! I'm happy to discover that people actually read this blog! I found that out the next day after I posted the last message, when scrapbookers started calling to sign up for the September retreat.

Here are a few more pieces of information about the retreat.

There will be a die-cut center available with two Sizzix machines and several alphabet sets, and Scrapbook Generation will have an on-site store where you can purchase cardstock, papers, adhesives, ribbons, tools, albums, idea books, and embellishments.

Resort amenities available to retreat guests include indoor and outdoor pools and hot tubs.

A letter with class choices and contest categories will be mailed July 15. Remaining balance and class choices will be due August 1. (We will also be glad to set up a payment schedule for those who would prefer to break the remaining balance up into smaller amounts!)

Tentative Schedule:
Friday -- Check-in at 4 p.m.; dinner at 7; optional class at 9; and snack buffet at 11.
Saturday -- Breakfast in your condo at your leisure; optional class at 10 a.m.; lunch at noon; optional classes at 2 and 4 p.m.; dinner at 6; contest entries due at 9; winners announced at 10; chocolate buffet at midnight.
Sunday -- Breakfast in your condo at your leisure; closing remarks at 10:30 a.m. (not sure exactly when we have to be out of the meeting room yet.)

Hope to see you there!

Today's excitement at Scrapbook Generation:
New arrivals...
-- All My Memories: 12x12 black Urban Chic albums are back;
-- Several new items for Mother's Day, including two sets of rub-on titles and phrases, and embellishments and stickers by Paper Bliss, EK Success, Me and My Big Ideas, and Jolee's Boutique.
