Log Cabin Scrapbook Retreat

I have found a beautiful location in Duvall, with 6 feet of table space for each of 10 participants, and a potential of 76 hours of scrapbooking (although I do recommend a little bit of sleep here and there). 

The cost of lodging for the weekend is $140.  To keep the cost low, I am proposing that participants divide into meal teams and provide one meal for the group during the weekend. 

In addition, I will offer optional workshops with supply fees and if we have enough interest, a massage therapist for a little relaxation during your weekend.  Fees to be determined by the therapist.  

I am requiring a $70 deposit by Feb 20th, 2014 with the additional $70 payment due April 1st, 2014. 

These 10 spaces will fill up fast so share this information with a friend or two, make plans to attend and contact me with your information. 

Contact me for information on where to send your payment.
