And the Oscar goes to......................

Hey Bloggerettes,
Our weekend retreat at the Stoney Nakoda Casino was a blast. The best thing about it was the group of ladies that attended. What a great bunch! I think everybody made some new friends, learned from each other and had quite a few laughs. The wine flowed, the chatter & laughter got louder, the scrapbooking jumped up a notch - what more could you ask for?

You can see by the pictures that everyone had on an apron (in the store colors of course). We have jumped on the latest trend of "Apron-ology". With some help from the multi-talented Maureen, we managed to custom make these aprons. The pockets were stuffed with goodies and game objects. They looked "maaaaarvelous"!

I would like to thank the following people for their assiduous efforts:
Robin (organizer extraodanaire), Brittany (worker-bee), Diane (eyes & ears of all things), Diana (early riser custodian-thank God), Maureen (on-call 24 hours/day person who can do anything) and Pat (quiet helper).

We had an Artist Trading Card (ATC) Contest over the weekend. We handed out blank cards and everyone submitted their work for independent judging on Saturday night. Congratulations to Jen who was the big winner of a custom made dangler bracelet by me. Second place was Nicolette (who doesn't even scrapbook) and third place was "Go-Getter" Sandy. Thanks to everyone who participated.

The Scrapyard is my favorite craft store? Is it yours? Nominate the Scrapyard for the Calgary Herald Readers Choice awards by going to the mouse down the right side of the home page to Spotlights "2009 Readers Choice Awards" - nominate the Scrapyard under favorite craft store. I think Robin and Lori need to be recognized.

One of the chicks.
