We survived another Scrapbook Generation retreat! It seemed as if everyone was in agreement that this was the best one yet! Our theme was Hollywood Lights, and the decorations, favors, prizes, food, and friendly atmosphere got rave reviews. One of the nicest things that happened was that at different times, several groups of ladies came to us privately and told us that they had recently been to other retreats, and that there was no comparison to our retreats. They mentioned our attention to detail, wonderful food, plentiful snacks, cute decorations, well-organized activities, and "classy" atmosphere!

We have lots of great pictures from the first weekend, but I can't post them here because I want the group who attends the retreat that starts Oct. 24 to be surprised when they see everything! Later, Stacey can put the pics on

We still have the one spot (or a group of two) that resulted from a cancellation in the second retreat. Read what the ladies from this past weekend had to say, and you may want to grab those last two openings! Here are their comments about Scrapbook Generation's weekend retreat in Branson. (Several people mention tickets, and you'll just have to wait until you're at the retreat to find out about those!)

-- "I loved every minute of it. The work area was perfect. The food was excellent and plentiful. I didn't even feel hungry when it was time to eat again -- great job! Oh, I almost forgot, the store had everything and more than what I needed. I can't wait to come back."

-- "This is my first time here. I had a blast. I've been to other retreats and this has been the best so far. The way that you involved everyone in doing sketches (with the contest) is great. You give a lot of good ideas. Also the tickets are a great hit. Thanks alot. I'll see you next year."

-- "Wonderful weekend. Thanks!"

-- "This is my first ever scrapbook retreat. I can't think of anything I would change other than adding a couple more bingo games. Food and prizes have been excellent.

-- I think this has been the best retreat you've done. I like the pizza boxes (full of prizes), the display of prize pages when announced, the food was the greatest, the smiles and friendly attitudes. Great job!"

-- "This was a great retreat. I loved the food. It was not too heavy and even healthy! Last night's dining atmosphere was just as wonderful as the food!"
