A Fun & Productive Weekend

I am just back from a fantastically fun scrapping weekend with some fun and fabulous ladies! I really love weekend retreats. It's nice to have the space and time to focus on an extended amount of projects. This time around I:
  *put some finishing touches on a few projects
  *did some digital layouts in Studio J
  * finished my baby shower album (finally!!) that's been sitting around for about 4 years waiting for inspiration
  * made a stack of brand new pages (I almost filled my craft bin I take to protect my pages before I sort them into albums!)
  * organized! yes, I really did take a couple hours to organize and re-organize a couple of my sticker and embellishment binders. It felt awesome.

I thought I would share one of my favorite layouts from the weekend first:

This is one of the layouts that goes into the long overdue (ha!) baby shower album. My sister had just moved to the same town as me about 4 weeks earlier. It was so wonderful to have her in town and around for the arrival of my first son.
 I really like the little pocket on the right page:
 I stitched it on...and it pulls out to show my journaling.
 As I said before, I love this layout!
 I will be back soon with more layouts from my weekend to share! Do you ever go on scrapping retreat weekends...or do you prefer to craft at home?

Loving your bump LO, I really should make a start on doing some myself! Where on earth do you find the energy to do all your scrapping? I haven't done any in months!

Love the hidden journalling...I've never been on a retreat, but would love to -one day!
