I'm back from my scrapbooking retreat!

Hi Everyone, I am back from my 3 day weekend. I actually took last Friday off from work so that I could head up to Big Bear (the local mountains/ski resorts) for a weekend of scrapbooking! We stay at Apples Bed and Breakfast. It is an amazing location because they have conference rooms that they rent out to crafters. Plus they have the most amazing food. I LOVE their breakfasts, snacks and desserts! I can't believe that I haven't bought their cookbook yet, I really should!

I get teased at work for scrapbooking, like it is a hobby that only little old ladies take part in, but believe me scrapbooking is for everyone. Everyone down here in San Diego knew that it was snowing up there this weekend, so they ask if I went skiing or did any snow activities...nope, no time to play in the snow! I had a lot of scrapbooking to do and it kept me busy all weekend. I really enjoy it and it is great to see all of my photos in albums that I know will last a long time.

I took a lot of Vera with me on the trip. My Pink Pansy Large Duffel made the trip with me and I had it all loaded up. I also had my Riviera Blue Vera tote and my new Folkloric Get Carried Away tote with me. Those were loaded up with scrapbooking stuff. I don't know how I toted all of this stuff around before I had my Vera Bradley bags.

I hope that you all had a nice Presidents Day!


  1. Glad you had a good weekend Scrapbooking :)

  2. Hey scrapbooking is DEFINITELY not for little old ladies! I've been scrapbooking for eight years! I was also at a crop this past weekend, only it was for just Friday night. Still got a lot done:) Glad you did too. I brought my IT bucket tote and several ladies complimented me one. Two said they'd NEVER heard of VB?! Can you believe it?
