The retreat starts in less than 36 hours! Later today, I'll finish packing for my stamping/scrapping retreat in Monarch, Montana (not too far from the Showdown Ski Area). I've got lots to do, like laundry and making sure Gary has plenty to eat while I'm gone. I'm baking goodies to munch on - chocolate of course! My projects include this year's Thanksgiving & Christmas cards, plus an explosion box (a first for me!). Kathy at "Bowl Full of Stamps" showed me an explosion box made into a scrapbook project and I've decided to make one for Gary as a surprise. When I started packing stuff for the explosion box - that's when the thought crossed my mind that it would almost be easier to stay home rather than transport all the stuff I'm taking with me (like almost every punch I own!). I can't even imagine packing stuff to actually work on scrapbook pages! I'll take my camera, take lots of pictures, and hopefully have a great time!
