Denton TX scrapbook Retreat
As I mentioned the other day, I attended a scrapbook retreat at Elm Street Crafters Retreat in Denton, TX last weekend. I had such a wonderful time while I was there, and can't wait to do it again. The craft cottage is perfect for a scrapbook retreat with 5 bedrooms and two bathrooms. Each room has 2 beds and the cottage holds 10 crafters. As you can see from the images above each crafter gets their own work space and the cottage provides some scrapping tools including a Cricut Expression, Baby bug, E2, cuttle bug, lots of cartridges, dies, punches, a computer with printer, and free wifi! What more could a crafter ask for?
Penni, the owner was so sweet. She stopped by at least everyother day to check on our group and make sure that we had everything we could imagine! Meals were brought in to us twice a day allowing our to focus on what we were there for...Scrapping and a bit of drinking!
I am very proud of my productivity while I was in Denton. I was able to complete 20 scrapbook pages, start my magnets and calling cards for the Ohio Circle Swarm, make a few cards, create wine charms to leave behind at the retreat center as a thank you to Penni, and I got a lot of girl time in while I was there!
These are the wine charms that I made to leave behind at the retreat. I made a set of 12, and I just happened to have all the items I needed to make them with me, with the exception of the ribbon I borrowed from Jill Cooper!
