Both of Scrapbook Generation's Fiesta Grande fall retreats are now officially over, although the pages created, pounds gained, and laughter shared will live on! I have tons of photos to share, and comments from the ladies who attended, so it will be a long post.

From my personal standpoint, I had a wonderful time both weekends. Karin and I have made so many friends because of the store, and attending retreats with all of you just adds to that bond. Thanks so much for being a good part of our lives! (Karin made all those homemade snacks you'll be reading about, and we had an outstanding caterer who did themed food for our event. Both Karin (who has no choice) and the caterer (who does) will be back for our two fall retreats!)

Here is what those attending our second retreat in Branson had to say about the experience...

-- "I had a great time. I loved the space in the conference room!"

-- "Catered food was awesome. Table set-up great! Classes were very good!"

-- "I always have a great time when I come to the retreat and look forward to the next. Great prizes, selection of products, great food!

-- "Loved the set-up and room at table. Good food."

-- "Everything was great -- good food, good selection of paper, supplies, etc. Lots of fun!"

-- "The first one I've ever been to and it was all really nice."

-- "Wonderful set-up! Love the table arrangements. Love your caterer. Music was great! Love the set-up of the mini-store."

-- "Everything was perfect. (I enjoyed the people you seated me with.) They are all so nice. I really enjoyed the music also. You guys are the best!"

-- "It was great -- rooms on the same level and straight down the hall. Food was very good. Space was good, also. Hotel accommodations were great -- quiet weekend. I don't know how you could improve -- I enjoyed it."

-- "Ladies, I don't think anything could improve such a perfect weekend! You outdo yourselves each year -- excellent food, prizes, etc. Thanks for bringing so much in the store, and all that you do!"

-- "I love this retreat!"
