I had a blast in Albuquerque, New Mexico last weekend with the Inspired ReTreat!!! These scrappers really know how to have fun. I felt so welcome and had a great time–thank you again!!!
Here are some photos from my little trip :) The day I arrived I taught two classes to some very sweet lovable scrappers–thanks for a great time ladies!! That night, the organizers had everyone get in their PJs and then come back to the ballroom. Then they directed everyone in a late night scrapper jazzercise to wake them up! It was hilarious but also really fun–everyone joined in and was a good sport about it. I think that is what made it so fun!

There were lots of giveaways every hour too–here's the organizer, Charlene, in her PJs :)
¬†On Sunday I taught my last class before being whisked off to the airport. It was so much fun!!! Here are some of the ladies waiting for me to start my class :) Everyone was so appreciative and eager to learn. I left feeling refreshed, inspired, and loving my “job”.

The next retreat is scheduled for November 4-6, 2011. There's good reason this retreat has attendees flying in from all over the US— it rocks! I hope you will join us there this Fall. It is at a great location, friendly, passionate croppers, nice variety of vendors, lots of crop space, and yummy catered food. And it is a BARGAIN. So check it out over on the Inspired ReTreat website.

Happy Cropping!
