It's hard to believe that in less than a month, our first spring retreat will be taking place. After all this cold and snow, I'm definitely ready! We'll be using a Mardi Gras theme, and the bright traditional carnival colors of green, purple, and gold have turned out to be so much fun to decorate with. We'll have masks, toss beads, and so many more bright and sparkly items that will go a long way toward helping us all shake off all the cold and gloom of January and February.

We'll be hosting two retreats, one the weekend of March 11-13 (only five spots left), and the other the weekend of March 18-20.

Our all-inclusive themed retreats begin at 3 pm on Friday afternoon and conclude at 11 am on Sunday. We limit each retreat to 40 people so that no one is crowded, either in table space or floor space. Everyone has access to extra tables for electronic items like computers and die-cutting machines. 

All meals are included in the weekend fee. We provide individual snack bags at your seat, and snack mixes and other treats are available almost all the time you are scrapbooking. Friday and Saturday evening, we have an extensive snack buffet. Saturday afternoon, we provide an ice cream sundae bar.

Scrapbook Generation sets up a huge on-site store with just about any tool, adhesive, embellishment, and paper collection you could possibly want or need. Everyone receives a generous amount of scrapbook goodies as gifts during the weekend. In addition, prizes are awarded at nightly Bingo games. Chances to win larger prizes are available through a fun process of winning "tickets."

Paid classes usually range from $10 - $20 and are taught by Debbie Sanders and Allison Davis, both authors of Scrapbook Generation's popular Sketches for Scrapbooking books. Photos are posted here on the blog as soon as available. On Saturday evening, you have the chance to enter three of your scrapbooking layouts or mini-albums in a variety of categories.

Prices for the weekend are determined by how many people are in a sleeping room. (If paying a lump sum is a problem for you, we're always willing to help work out a payment plan!)
• $285 for a single room
• $245 per person for two in the room
• $235 per person for three in the room
• $225 per person for four in the room
