It's really no fun to be back at work after three days at Scrapbook Generation's Polynesian Paradise! We had a super relaxing, enjoyable time with the ladies at the first of our two weekend retreats in Branson. This was one of the nicest groups Karin and I have worked with, and everything about the weekend went just the way we had hoped. The caterer's food was out of this world, and I can't wait to share the photos of her tropical creations, and to share the photos of our decorations and activities. However, like always, I can't post them just yet because I don't want to spoil the surprise for the group of ladies who will be at the second retreat this weekend.

However, I can share some comments from the scrappers who attended the first retreat. It's always heartwarming for us to read all the nice things that people have to say about Scrapbook Generation's weekend getaways!

I promised many of the scrappers that I would post the recipe for our fruit salsa and cinnamon chips, and I'll do that on Tuesday. It's super easy!
