First Layouts from Retreat finished!

I had a great long weekend in Salt Lake City at the Close to My Heart Album Retreat. We did 21 pages, or 10 two page layouts and one title page, and Michael's mini album. It was an amazing weekend. I roomed with two new friends that I never met until we arrived at the SLC airport and Betsy Gully, a scrapping/card making friend from the DOTS days. We never left the hotel once we started scrapping Thursday night until we finished late Saturday afternoon. All meals were provided so we scrapped 8+ hours a day. It was unbelievable and I had the best time! I'm saving to go again next year! Anyway, here are three layouts I have completely finished with pictures.


  1. Mare, great layouts! The retreat sounds like fun! I hope I get to go to one some day... my business has been so slow lately! I'd love to get back into it with some fresh ideas!

  2. Mary, these look so great with pictures!! I can't wait to see what you do with the next seven. As for me, I gotta start choosing photos for ALL of mine!! Great job, girlfriend!!
    I've got a start on my new blogspot... check me out when you get a chance!

  3. Mary, your photos make these layouts even more amazing than I thought they were at the retreat. Great job girlfriend! Can't wait to see what you do with the rest!! I'm still searching my *photo archives* ...~cough~... to complete mine.

    I've finally started my blogspot.. check it out!!

  4. Your layouts are absolutely gorgeous! TFS
