10 Days, 10 Friends, 10 Kits!!!

For each friend you refer to the retreat starting May 1 and going until May10, we will give you YOUR CHOICE OF A FREE MondayNightClass.ca kit at the retreat ($25 value)!!!

AND... we will wave the $20 late charges for your friends, but only for the next 10 days!!!

BUT... this is only for the next 10 spots!!!

Be sure to have your friends mention your name and this challenge when they register in order to WIN!!

Meanwhile, enjoy these SNEAK PEEKS of some of the beautiful crafting you will get to see and experience at the retreat!!!  

Start thinking NOW of what friends you could bring along for a great weekend get-away and get them to sign up starting May 1 for 10 days!!!  They don't need to be "uber crafty" in order to participate and who knows... they might actually discover an inner artist just waiting to be released!!!

Sneak Peek!!

Here is a sneak peek at one of the fabulous projects you are going to get to create this year at our Scrapbook Your Heart retreat May 14-16, 2010!!!

We will post more peeks and our optional classes over the next couple of weeks so be sure to watch for that!!!  Meanwhile, know that we are working with some AWESOME sponsors again!!

This is getting exciting!!!

Good Day!

In about one month we will all be gathering for our amazing weekend retreat!!!  WE ARE EXCITED!!!

In today's update, we want to introduce you a bit better to Michelle Zemlak, our guest instructor!!

Michelle, originally from Red Deer, now residing in the cozy small town of 
Delburne AB. with her best friend and hubby John aka “the nicest man in 
Canada”, and her 4 fantabulous children and many furry friends who are all 
more often than not the inspiration behind her designs. 
Michelle is the owner & designer of a quaint scrapbook boutique  
The Hope Chest Scrapbook & Gift Co. where she is fortunate enough to be 
able to express her artistic abilities on a daily basis. Michelle has a passion 
for all things shabby and vintage! From her old character home, vintage style d├ęcor, to her scrapbook designs, its shabby & vintage all the way!  
Michelle is grateful to have found her creative outlet in scrapbooking which 
has enabled her to share her passion of “Living life creatively”  
with her family and others

We are very excited to have Michelle and her quaint store "The Hope Chest" join us this year!!
