WhoGivesaScrap Winter Retreat

Okay so 12 of us fun girls got together for our annual retreat. We usually do this once a year and we have such a good time! This was our 2nd time at The Scrap Retreat House in Winchester.

In attendance we had, Janice, Audrey, Wendy, Cynthia, Robin, Billie, Charlie, Marjorie, Marie and Melissa. Love these girls, cause I had a real good time!

This was the first time that I was completely unprepared for this retreat. Life has just been a whirlwind! I think I was just really looking forward to the time away!

This was also the 1st retreat where I was not too productive, but I still got some stuff done.
We had a BUNCH of snacks, food, drinks, alot of girl time, girl talk, laughing.....oooh the best part was my 60 minute massage I got on Saturday. The poor masseuse did maybe 7-8 of us I know she was ready to go home! Before she left we had her snag our pic though...see below!

Yes....that is me...and that is our mascot mask. There is a story behind it but to make it real short..lol...our Yahoo Group, WhoGivesaScrap. One of our members just shortened it all together and alot of come to just call us WhoGAS as they are the acronyms...lol...I know I know. So Miss Wendy, came across a GAS MASK! And it seems to appear at every crop recently...lol.
Wendy, Marjorie and I

Miss Robin graciously did a make and take for us, the layout was pretty cool. I learned a few techniques, will post later with other items I completed. Thanks Robin! Visit her blog, she does pretty cool stuff!
Ok....brace yourself.....
We usually do some type of RAK or group project that we all take part in. Well some girls just didn't have the guts to do it....however.....ladies if you take a REAL close look at the photos below, you can kinda get the idea as to what was goin down and what we had to ALTER! LOL!
Enjoy the photos! I MUST admit, I wasn't too excited about working in this project cause it just didn't feel right! BUT, the end result was great! We all shared some pretty heart wrenching laughs...lol! We had an OVERACHIEVER in the group...as she made wrist cuffs and earrings to match...I won't even get in to what they were made out of! LOL!

We have a tradition to do the Cupid Shuffle dance at every retreat. We did it a few times, but we thought it would be fun to do it in our "slippers." Unfortunately, we were sliding all over the floor...with the exception of Marie..BECAUSE she took the backing off the bottom of her "SLIPPERS" LOL!!!

Me & Charlie showing off our slippahz!
Here are the ladies that had the guts to partake in the activity...LOL! Girl Power! Embrace your slippahz! Here are mine...lol...

Overall I had a good time, as usual! can't wait to do it again!
