SG's final retreats

We wanted to share photos from our final two retreats. We had a wonderful time with the over 100 people who attended our last weekend retreats in Branson.

There are lots of things we'll miss about the retreats, especially the friendships made over the 13 retreats spanning almost seven years.

However, as I've shared with many of you, we are simply desperate for time! We have several large projects (including new sketches books!) that require large blocks of time. With four retreats and three Scrap-a-Paloozas each year, plus a constant schedule of kits, we've just been spreading ourselves too thin. The extra time will allow us to concentrate on new sketches books, more downloads, and more kits.

Thanks so much to everyone who has attended one of our retreats! We've appreciated your support, and hope to stay in contact!

Scenes from the first weekend.

Our first port of call, Friday evening, was in Cancun.

Our second port of call, for Saturday lunch, was in Tahiti.

Saturday evening we enjoyed a "formal night" dinner.

This group from Indiana created special outfits for formal night!

Our wonderful caterer, Dee, and her husband, Captain Danny.

To accommodate more people each weekend, we moved the SG store to a separate room.

Karin, Debbie, Stacey, and Captain Allison at the last of our 13 retreats spanning almost seven years. It's been great fun and we hate to see that come to an end. Thanks to all who have attended our retreats!

Connie joined us from Seattle. Between the two weekends, we had "cruisers" from Georgia, Pennsylvania, Texas, Alabama, Arkansas, Indiana, Illinois, Oklahoma, California, and several other states!
