Stamp and Scrap Getaway Weekend

Had a GREAT scrappin weekend with Ronda Wade and Melissa Roberts as our hostess.  We stayed at the Quality Inn University hotel in Lansing from 3:00 Friday March 12 to noon on Sunday March 14th.  I think there were something like 26 of us and we each had a 6 foot table space.  We had four optional classes we could sign up for and of course I could not resist but had to take all of them. Then we had four make-n-takes, raffles and silent auction all during the weekend.  Included were our meals, snacks and lods of goodies and complements of the hotel a free drink pass each day. I guess this is going to be a semi annual deal and this is my second time I have been.  If money allows I will be at the next one in November. Here are just a few of the pictures that I took.

Lois Purcell
This is my sister Lois's table and in the background is Cheryl working away at her table, she ended up doing over 40 cards that weekend.

Neice Tricia's Table
This is my neice Tricia Trelstad's table and her mom, my other sister Sandi Dailey, was just off camera to the right of her.  They had pop corn as a snack on Friday night and the cute plastic pop corn container was our gift. Also your eyes are not deceiving you that is Diane Emery in the background in her pink flower pj outfit for the contest.

Sandi Dailey and Tricia Trelstad
This is my sister Sandi and her daughter Tricia.  Sandi made both costumes. Sandi does not like to waste any scraps and is always going through the trash at meetings to retreive leftovers people throw away.  So she through this would be a perfect idea for her since everything was recycled from her scraps.  Tricia is Maxine the cartoon lady and Sandi made this up even the maxie pad slippers.  You will have to enlarge to see the details they are really made from maxie pads and the flower sizzlet die.

Jane Delau, Sandi and Tricia
This is Jane Delau aka Princess Kitty and Sandi and Tricia from the backside.
The winner was Tricia

Goodie Table
Of course what would be a party without a goodie table and I was so lucky it was right next to where I sat.

We had so much fun you hated to pack up and leave on Sunday. But I did need two days of sleep once I got home.  I do not know how Ronda and Melissa do this all the time with all their classes they do all week long.  I could never keep up.

Well that well be all for now, but I will post some of the projects later and show you what we did, they were awsome.


  1. Nice pics Kathleen -- can't wait to see the projects.

  2. Love the pics, especially the backside view of Tricia & Sandi. See you had a few that I didn't have. An starting a retreat fund now so I will be ready for the next one. TFS
