Artistic U Scrapbook Retreat

Today, I realized that the upcoming Fall Artistic U Retreat is just a month away! If you haven't gotten my invites, seen my posts on Facebook or attended any of my classes where I have talked about it, please know you are invited to attend my Fall 2013 Artistic U Scrapbook Retreat, October 24 at 4:00 pm to October 26th at 4:00 pm in Heber, UT. It's going to be fabulous! This is all inclusive--all meals (and they will be yummy), lodging complete with hot tub and theater room for breaks from scrapping, four fabulous projects, a goodie bag worth $75.00 and an Artistic U shirt. Oh yes, and plenty of room and time to relax and create to your heart's content. So hop on over to and click on the Fall 2013 tab to register. I'd love to have you there!

Since this is close to Halloween, we have a little holiday fun planned for your "Ghouls' Weekend". More details to come. Please join us for some scrapbooking and pampering!

Back To School

My kids have actually been back in school for two weeks now. Thank heaven they're still willing to pose for a first day back to school photo.

In honor of back to school, I created a back to school layout. It was a flashback on my eldest son's K through 12 experience.

And you know what I discovered? That I have no idea where I have put his 4th grade pictures! More importantly, that 13 years of public school for this one went by in a flash. Everyone tells you that. And you laugh and think, "Yea, right." And then you create a layout like this and go, "Oh".

If you have little ones, hug them tight. If they're close to flying the coop, hug them tight. If they're gone, send them a note to remind them you still love and think of them. And make sure you know where you've put all those years of school photos. It is making me crazy that I can't find those 4th grade photos!
