Howdy and Welcome,
I'm back from 'The Scrap Cabana' weekend scrapbooking retreat in Aurora, Illinois! It was fun, in spite of my sprained ankle.
Some of my Scrap-A-Holics members also attended: Becky, Maria and Mary O. We had so much fun - as we always do at Scrap Cabana. This was the 3rd year for me and Mary O. We only attend once a year, in November. Becky and Maria go more often - and we all have our 'buttons' to prove it. The owner gives us a "Scrap Cabana" button every time a cropper attends. You should see ALL the buttons some ladies have on their lanyards!
|L - R: Becky, Maria, Mary Lou, Mary O|
We're all members of The Midwest Scrap-A-Holics of Chicagoland
works in the IT(Information Technology) field - just like I do!

|Scrap-A-Holics member Mary O - a BIG winner. |
She won a FREE weekend at the Scrap Cabana - dates of her choosing.
Mary was in shock, because she said 'I never win anything!'
|Me with my cane for sprained ankle - and guess what? I won 3 raffle prizes! |
Although I declined the 3rd prize - a huge organizing box, becasue I have no room for it in my house.
So it was raffled off again. And my new croppin' buddy, Dawn, won it!
Scrapbookers are THE NICEST PEOPLE you will ever meet - and so much fun, too!
