Great news!! We have secured our special guest instructors that will be coming to Alberta's Scrapbook Your Heart retreat May 22-24, 2009!!

Leica Forrest - Leica is a creative powerhouse coming as a special guest instructor from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan!! She was particularly interested in this retreat as she has personally suffered great loss over the past year and has found healing and inspiration through scrapbooking!! In Leica's "spare time", she takes care of the loves of her life... hubby, two boys and finally a baby girl that she can scrapbook with real "girly" stuff!! Check out more at

Jill Hildebrand - Jill has a distinct style of scrapbooking and it totally matches her uncanny ability to ensure everyone has a good time!! She can take bits and pieces from all kinds of places and create a thing of beauty... kind of like our lives sometimes!! She hails from Crystal City, Manitoba where she helps farm with her hubby and 3 kids and is excited about helping women face some of their fears, pick up the pieces and make something beautiful out of their life!!

And in case you are not familiar with the other team members...

Allison Orthner - Allison is passionate about life in general, but especially gets excited helping women explore matters of the heart and including them in their scrapbooks! With her love of photography, scrapbooking and inspiring women, she is looking forward to helping attendees understand how they are "Princess Warriors" in this world! She plays house in Calgary with her gorgeous "gadget guy" husband and two amazing kids who are the FOCUS of most of her photos (pun totally intended!!!) Check out more at

Christine Collier - Christine is affectionately known as Calgary's Craft Diva and comes as no surprise that she is going to teach the "Princess" layout at the retreat! She truly has a heart for women and her desire is that we ALL can view ourselves as special "princesses" in this world and celebrate WHO we are EXACTLY as we are! Christine lives in Calgary with her hubby and two kids who enjoy their mom's assorted crafts gracing their home from top to bottom!!!

Christy Riopel - Christy is co-owner of one of Canada's Top kit club called and is proud to be our MC for the weekend as well as instructor for our "Warrior" layout at the retreat! She is also hoping to guide attendees through a simple, but effective way to journal heart matters on your layouts and be strong and proud about some of the not-so-pretty things we have endured! Christy hangs out in Calgary with her hubby and two kids and enjoys running her business and teaching at the Scrapbook Pantry. Check out more at

We're back and we dare say even better than before!!! Plans for this year's Scrapbook Your Heart retreat are so exciting and many of you have been patiently (and not so patiently!) waiting for registration!! So here it is... we will open online registration on:

Monday, February 2, 2009
at 8am Alberta time

You will be able to access the online registration from this blog as well as the Scrapbook Your Heart website. Space is limited and due to the popularity of last year's retreat, we do expect it to sell out quickly so be sure you and your friends register early so as to not be disappointed!

Watch both the website and this blog for details as we release them!

We'd love to see you there! Here's a glimpse of last year's experience!

NOTE: This retreat is NOT suitable for those who do not like to laugh, cry, hang with your girlfriends, make new friends, be inspired, dig a little deeper, contemplate the meaning of life and go home feeling encouraged no matter how much or little scrapbooking was accomplished! If you want to do marathon scrapbooking, may we suggest other fabulous Alberta events like (click on the ad to get more information):
