It's time to Crop-port in Rockport again!! Autumn is fast slipping away and soon the holidays will be upon us. I am so excited about the third scrap retreat here at the Linden Tree Inn! We had so much fun the last two years, I can't wait to see what this year will bring! Come and scrap all those Holiday pictures uninterupted no kids, phone, no need to worry about the cooking and cleaning! We try to promote a relaxed, fun, scrapping atmosphere, with lots of good food, friendship and a fab scrapping goodie basket to take home. And don't forget all the scones you can eat for breakast!!!!

This year I have decided to have more days available for the Scrap Retreat. I am going to offer retreat time from January 10th through January 21. Come for any two or more days that fit your schedule. You will have your own scrap space to set up for the whole time you are here with 24 hour acccess, use of a Sizzix die cutter with 8 alphabet sets, and over 100 dies and embossing dies, punches, rubber stamps, and a variety of other tools. The cost for 2 nights is $220, which includes tax, meals, drinks, snacks, your own guest room with private bath, and an awesome goodie basket. Special pricing for extended stays or for adding an extra day or two to your 2 night reservation! We require a 50% non-refundable deposit to hold your place, with the balance due on arrival. On reciept of payment, you will be sent a questionnaire to fill out regarding any food allergies and preferences for drinks and snacks. If you would like to register, you can post a comment, or check out our Linden Tree Inn website for contact information.

So when dropping your "What I want for Christmas" this year hints, don't forget to add the "Crop-Port in Rockport" in January to your wish list!!! Bring along a friend or two, or maybe a family member....make it a girl's weekend crop!

Hope to see some of my online scrappy friends this January!

Having Fun With My Scrappy Friend!

My online friend Terri came to visit with her Mom and son! They had a blast sightseeing and checking out all the fall foliage. But they had to leave today....I really enjoyed having her here, and meeting her family. It's only been an hour or so and I miss her already! We had so much fun chatting and talking about scrapping, and even did a little scrappy shopping at Absolutely Everything! I got some cool new stamps and the second Clean and Simple Scrapbooking book by Cathy Zielske. I loved her first one!

Here's a picture of Terri, Pat and I....can't wait till we are altogether again!

And here is a picture of Terri and Me:

It's October, Where did the Summer go???

WOW is all I can say!!! Where has the time gone, last I knew it was the start of the summer, and now here we are smack in the middle of Fall! It has been so busy at the Inn I haven't had any time at all to sit down and spend time at the computer to post to my blogs. I have been able to find a wee bit of time to squeeze a little scrapping in..and will post some of my more recent LOs for you.

I have been busy planning the January Scrap Retreat and will make another post with all the information you will need to plan your getaway to scrap at my "Crop-Port" in Rockport at the Linden Tree Inn. We have had a great time the past 2 years, and I am really looking forward to hosting it for another year.

What projects have you all been working on? I hope to start making my Christmas present LOs soon, as I always end up leaving them till the last minute! I'm always looking for great present ideas, so feel free to post me some project ideas in your comments.

Here are a couple of my recent LOs....hope you enjoy them!

This LO is of our 6th wedding anniversary that I did this summer...I decided I needed to scrap the 6th anniversary before we celebrated our 7th this September. I really like the way it came out!

My night bloooming cereus bloomed in September, the second time this summer, I was very excited and was able to get a lot of really fabulous photos of it while it was blooming. I decided to make a LO with some of my favorite pictures of the inside of the flower. The paper is all Arctic Frog, from my October 4 Scrappy Sisters Kit!

Thanks for checking out my blog! Happy scrapping everyone!
