The COUNTDOWN is on!

Hello all!

This is a special post for those of you that are joining us on retreat November 11th.  (If you are someone considering our next retreat, this will give you a sneak peek at what to expect.)

ONLY 16 more sleeps until our FALL 2011 Scrapbook Retreat!!!
We are very excited to host this wonderful event at the Elmhurst Inn Resort and Spa. In only a couple of short weeks we will be enjoying the beautiful scenery, a full weekend of scrapping and great company. Not to mention, great loot! We have worked out all the final details with the Elmhurst and are excited to share them with you. Remember, this is your weekend! Whether you want to scrap all weekend, get a spa treatment, stroll the grounds or just hang out, this weekend is YOUR getaway. Enjoy!

Check In & Important Details
On Friday, November 11th you can check in at the main building any time after 2pm and get settled into your room. We are scrapping in the Carriage house just a short step away, off the main parking lot. The Carriage House will be open at 5pm at which time you may come and unload/set up your scrappy stuff! There will be a seating chart at the door of the carriage house so you and your friends know where to sit. We will have tables set up on the main floor and upper level.
Let the scrapping begin!
A Buffet Style Dinner will be served to us in the Carriage house, on the lower level, at 6:30pm. This is just the first of the fabulous meals the Elmhurst provides. (alcohol is available from the Elmhurst at an additional expense)
*If you have any food allergies please let us know so we can inform the Elmhurst.
You may scrap until your heart desires! We will stay up into the wee hours and ensure the door is locked when we leave so your stuff will be safe overnight. Who knows? Maybe someone will even pull an all-nighter! If you get to the carriage house and it is locked in the morning, please go to the front desk and get the key. It is usually open quite early though.
A buffet style breakfast is offered in the main buildings' dining room, from 7am-10am. Join us in the Carriage house for another day of scrapping, at your leisure.
A coffee/Teas service and snack will be offered at around 10am, followed by lunch at noon. All meals and snacks will be in the lower level of the carriage house with the exception of breakfast. Our afternoon snack will be around 2 pm, and dinner will be at 5:30pm.
We have a fun evening planned, if you so choose to partake. Get in your jammies and scrap in comfort. We will be playing a fun and quick game (to give away some cool prizes!) in the lower level around 8:30 pm and...if you feel like a 'girls night out' away from scrapping, we will be playing the movie, 'Bridesmaids' around 10pm.
Scrap until your hearts content again, and do it all again on Sunday! We can scrap until 5pm on Sunday, however check out time from your room is 11am. Breakfast will be available once again from 7am-10am. Lunch and snacks will be served at the same designated times.
If you have any questions please contact us at 905.730.2673 or email us at
