As many of you know, each Fall I get the opportunity to travel to beautiful Lake Tahoe for a few days of scrapping with other CTMH consultants (who are all pretty cool chicks, too!). We catch up on each others' lives, we laugh (A LOT), we eat (probably too much), we CREATE (some more than others), and somewhere in there we sleep (a little - VERY little)! It is always one of the highlights of my year.
Each year, our fearless leader, Sue, chooses a theme based on one of the new kits featured in the idea book and plans several amazing create and takes for us to complete during the course of the retreat, one of which is always a layout for our retreat pictures. With a little nudging from Sue (Thanks Sue! I needed that nudging), I finally got my Tahoe layout complete and wanted to share it with you.
Last years' theme was "Jingle All the Way to Tahoe" Yes, we created several fun holiday themed projects, but I love how Sue was able to use the exact same kit to create layout with no holiday-feel to it at all! And yes, before you ask, we DO bring shirts to match our theme for the day we take group photos! :-)
So I encourage YOU, next time you look at a kit and see a theme, look again and see what you might be able to do that isn't so theme-oriented. Leave me a comment and let me know how you've used one of our kits for something completely different than the original theme and you'll be entered into a drawing for a little goody from me! Drawing will take place on Tuesday, March 16th, so leave your comment today!
