I'm home! Am I refreshed? ha.... I'm exhausted actually..... but it is a good exhaustion from laughing and having a great time with 10 other ladies. The whole experience was AMAZING! Our hostess' for the weekend were Kristine Widtfeldt, VP Sales & Marketing and Monica Wihongi, VP Training, Events and Events for Close To My Heart.
We arrived in Salt Lake City in the afternoon and a shuttle whisked us away to this beautiful scrapbooking retreat in Heber City, Utah. We settled into our rooms where we found these gift bags on each of our beds waiting for us! It's a tote that contained these fuzzy pink slippers (so cozy!), my favorite snacks and a Diet Coke to wash them down, a monogramed coffee cup, 4 CD's of fun scrappin' music, a mani/pedi kit and an adorable door hanger! (see close up below) What a way to start the weekend! We also each got a new Faux Leather Album!
After the game we proceeded upstairs to the scrappin' area where we began the first layout of the night. Now, I'd LOVE to show you pictures and tell you all about this first layout but it's a BIG SECRET that will have to wait until the new Spring/Summer Idea Book comes out! YEP! That's right! We got a sneak peak at the newest WOTG kit. YOU ARE GOING TO LOVE IT!!!!

We completed 11 layouts and 4 clear cards this weekend. I won't show them all tonight.... I will save them to show over the next few days so you will have to keep checking back.
One last thought for the night.... This was an AMAZING experience. 9 strangers from different parts of the US came together with one thing in common.... Close To My Heart. We left this morning with tears in our eyes because we bonded so much over such a short period of time. Kristine and Monica were so 'real' and each day I kept thinking how blessed I was to be a part of Close To My Heart. I will forever cherish these memories and these friendships that I have made this past weekend.
