RemArkable Safari Retreat

OMGoodness if you were a RemArkable Stamper and not able to attend- you really missed out! Can you believe stampers came from Arizona? Michigan North Carolina….All over!

Yes- it was THAT GOOD. and the Projects were even better.

In a snapshot: I learned new techniques, made some new friends and got to know better the friends I already had! I won 3 prizes, made some amazing projects, ate GREAT food and DROOLED over the swaps! the one thing I did NOT do was sleep!

I had the MOST AMAZING time! I will share many of the projects this week….

Here, with some teammates at the Safari Dinner. What a Hoot seeing grown women having such a great time dressing up in Jan’s surprise safari gear! not to mention those who really let loose at the party that night!

Back: Cathy B, Deanna W

Front: Nicole, Kelly and Me

These ladies posed with Jan (without the hat) Mary Swan (in yellow), with two of her downline, Ann Fitton (in black), and Brandy Whisman (in red).

Here is the crop room. OMGoodness its a little blurry but you can see Cathy Gaspard sharing Fab projects. Each lady had tons of space to crop and stamp. there were over 100 of us in the ballroom

all around the perimeter of the room- were bigvshot stations and show and share – projects that we brought so other can see.

Here is Jan at the head table. She spoiled us rotten! door prizes galore, music snacks and treats. what a drag coming bag to reality today. I already miss it!

in the back were stamps and ink available for us and a sign-out sheet!

at the other end of the room were tools and punches GALORE! WOWZERS!!

    Looks like the retreat was lots of fun. I wish I could have gone but it was quite a ways from here. I did participate long distance with the make & takes and rolodex so I am looking forward to receiving those. Thanks for sharing your pictures. :)Dawn MarquardtSt Joe. Michigan
