Winner, Retreat Announcement, and Project Sneak Peek…

Hi Everyone!  I know, I'm a day late.  I was really busy yesterday filling orders from the weekend, and a Prima shipment arrived.  Sorry!  But, better late than never, right?!  Today I'm going to announce the random winner of Friday's giveaway.  First, if you missed it let me tell you about the event of the summer I am hosting.  I'm so excited!!  You'd see me doing the happy dance if you were here.  I've been working on putting this together for over 3 months, and  the moment is here.  I'm throwing a luxury retreat this summer!!  Here's the details:

Luxury Scrapbook Retreat Getaway

July 15-17, 2011

SheratonJoin Melissa Samuels, your hostess, for a fun filled weekend of being pampered, meeting new & old friends alike, and preserving memories of a lifetime.  Be inspired, and ignite your creativity in the beautiful setting of the Sheraton Richmond Park South.  Scrap the weekend away in the Chesapeake Room, an atrium with natural lighting seemingly designed for scrapbooking.  Every guest will be seated  at their own 6' table with electricity.  The crop area will be available 24 hours, but if you need a break enjoy the indoor/outdoor pool,  jacuzzi, fitness facility, or use the hotel shuttle service to take you to an appointment at the Salon del Sol only minutes away.  A mini-store will be setup on site to ensure you don't run out of essential scrapbooking supplies, and there will be exclusive deals for Retreat guests.  Registration will begin Friday, July 15th at 1pm outside the Chesapeake Room, where you will be greeted by Melissa with a swag bag filled with amazing products.  Meals are included from Friday evening until Sunday afternoon.

In other news, here's a little peek at a project I was working on over the weekend.  I started it as a stress reliever, however, I'm thinking of doing it as a UStream kit because I  thought it was so cute.  What do you guys think??
