MemoryWorks Retreat 2009

I had a blast at this years MemoryWorks retreat! What an amazing time!!! Once again, we got TONS of stuff to bring home. I heard that one person even had to go buy another suitcase. Many people had to ship their stuff home. I packed little clothes so I had room for stuff I got. My suitcase weighed 47 lbs! Yikes. I had 3 lbs to spare.

About the classes.

Creative Studios
: Creative studios was a 4 hour even where everyone worked at their own pace and created a whole bunch of 6 x 6 layouts and a board book cover. The layouts were designed by home office and taught by the TeamWorks team that attended the event as staff. Also, Samantha Walker with Creative Imagination taught one, Tami Comstock taught one and Bo Bunny gals taught one.

Samantha Walker: Taught a great class! In this class we created a card, tag, and a layout - all christmas themed. We worked with foil and foiling on all items. What a fun technique and NOT messy at all!!!

BasicGrey: Layle taught this class for BasicGrey and it was a delight. We created a fun summer album using the Lime Rickey line. Awesome bright papers and Layle is a GREAT teacher!!

Rusty Pickle: Nannette taught a funky class using a sweet mini album!! The papers were bright and funky and the album was so cool with many flaps, tags and more!

The afternoon was full of the boys. Jodi, Madison & KC.

My Minds Eye: KC was the teacher this year for MME! It was fun to chat with him before hand and get a sneak peek at what is to come from MME - he said we are only the 2nd group to see their upcoming paper lines (he brought prototypes!) I'm so excited for both Halloween & Christmas! It's super awesome.

The class project was a 2 page layout using the MME Breaking Free line.

Fancy Pants: Madison & the founder of Fancy Pants Jodi taught this class. We created a layout in a frame! The frame has acrylic (not glass) and is great for displaying beautiful layouts you create. Plus photos and more! Very creative and exciting project to put together! The layout was fairly simple - but definitely would make an impact to add to any wall in your house.

We R Memory Keepers: Jody with Scrapbook Trends (used to be with My Minds Eye) taught this class!! It was so cool. Using page protectors (with various sized pockets) we created some fun mini layouts in these protectors (in the empty spaces you can add 4 x 6 photos). We created 4 different kinds using ALL four of their current lines right now.

Prism/Sassafras: We created a cute layout using AWESOMe prism cardstock & Sassafras Bungle Jungle line. So cute! Jamie from Prism taught the class. It was so good to see her again.

Cosmo Cricket: Tami Comstock taught this class using the Cosmo Cricket Ever After paper line and embellishments. This line is not only for "wedding themed" albums, but you can use it on many more layouts and projects including father's day and much more!

Pink Paislee: I was looking forward to this class more then any of the others. I ADORE Pink Paislee! Brenda Hurd designed the project for this class & taught it. What a beautiful project she created! She used the Captivating theme set!
More updates to come - this one took awhile to put together :)
