Friday April 15, 2011 Hello everyone... I will not be posting any cards this weekend as I will be leaving in a few minutes driving go to the Oregon coast for a ladies church retreat. Lots of fellowship, fun times, games and of course going with my dear crafting friend I will be doing some scrapbook work from last years retreat photos and other fun paper crafts. I am so looking forward to this recharging the inner self and the ocean views and smell. Of course it's raining in SW Washington and sure it is in Oregon too but it will be a great weekend. Have a great weekend and I will be posting next week. Thanks for stopping by.. Hugs
