My sister and I went to a scrapbooking retreat this weekend. It was her first time at a retreat and she really had a good time. I love going to retreats for the weekend. I meet so many interesting people and I get a lot of pages done since there are no distractions from home to get in the way of my completion goal. I met 2 of my friends there and we got to catch up on things since the last time I saw them. This was also a way for me and my sister to spend some quality time together. We don’t get to see each other much since she has a young family and I work many hours during the week. It is hard to schedule time together. I think we are going to try and make this a semi-annual tradition. I think it gives us some time together doing something we both love to do. She is new at scrapbooking and I have only been doing it for a year so I think we can also bounce ideas off of each other. She did some really awesome pictures of her kids as babies. She had some unique ideas using vellum and they turned out fabulous. I can’t wait for September to get here so we can do this again!
