Tall Oaks Retreat

Last weekend my friend Jess and I hosted 16 fabulous ladies at Tall Oaks Retreat in Arbor Vitae, WI. Our friend Casie runs the joint. There were many a ScrapFreak and WIScrapper in attendance. It was such a nice mix of people!
It was such a kickA@# weekend. A big thanks to Nick and Grandma Mary Ella for keeping the girls occupied at home so I could escape for a couple of days.

We laughed

We ate

We drank

We stood by the fire pit in the rain

We watched classic 80's movies

We scrapped

We slept very little

We giggled at things that weren't naughty as if they were

We borrowed supplies

We laughed

We ate

We drank

We oohed and aahhed over layouts

We survived 36 hours without wireless

We survived intermittent cell service

On Saturday we headed into town for some scrapbook shopping and lunch. Here is the group at The Thirsty Whale. Yes- I'm laying on a whale.
Casie, Jess and I did share a room but didn't plan to be all matchy with our black shirts. But we look pretty cute if I do say so myself.
When I'm the zone going on a few hours of sleep I turn into a ScrapNinja!!! I completed 14 layouts. That's pretty durn good!
I will cut you!
I cannot wait until our next Retreat!!
