Scrappin’ Retreat in PTC

Calling all scrappers! Scrappin’ Retreats, Inc. out of Flowery Branch, Georgia, will be celebrating its 10 year anniversary by hosting a special scrapbooking retreat at the Wyndham Peachtree Conference Center right here in Peachtree City the weekend of September 24-25.

Karen Collins, President of Scrappin’ Retreats, has been hosting scrapbooking retreats for 10 years at locations such as Lake Burton, Legacy Lodge at Lake Lanier, as well as at her home in Flowery Branch that was specially designed for retreats. I’ve been attending her retreats since 2005.

The Wyndham retreat will kick off on Saturday, September 24, at 10 am. As at all of Karen’s retreats, you’ll have your own table (6-ft) for scrappin’, along with a comfy ergonomic chair.

Highlights of the weekend include make-n-take creative projects such as a 2-page spread using color blocking & pattern mixing, flower techniques using some of the newest EK success punches and score boards, some quick & easy mini-cards that are fun to make & share with friends, paper piecing ideas, home decor items and more! They’ll schedule these classes throughout the day — you sign up for the ones you’re interested it — at no extra charge.

PLUS: Door prizes, raffle baskets, giveaways, goody bags

To mention a few:

Baskets from Creative Memories, A/Muse Studio, Close to My Heart, Stampin’ UP!
and more!

5 certificates for a Carribean Cruise for 2 from Carribean Cruise Lines 3-day/2-night

One FREE Group Rental at Scrappin’ HOME Retreats (bring up to 11 of your friends to scrapbook free for the weekend)

Goody Bags for everyone from Classy Coordinates

Giveaways from Thirty-One Gifts, Scripture Tableware, scrapbooking stores, and more!

MEALS & SNACKS:

The Wyndham will offer “anytime snacks” — a snack bar with snacks and drinks that’s yours for the taking–whenever you’re hungry, just hit the snack bar. Morning snacks may include bagels, pastries, cereals, fruit, yogurt, one or two hot items, plus drinks: juices, coffee, tea, bottled waters, sodas . . . For LUNCH, you’ll enjoy a delicious buffet meal at the Terrace Restaurant there at Wyndham. Afternoon snacks are typically cookies, cakes, trail mix, nuts, fruits, veggies with dip, plus the drinks. (Dinner’s on your own.)

After the Saturday Event, you’ll want to stay overnight to enjoy a full day of scrappin’ on Sunday. Included is a special hospitality gift bag in your room with surprises like Sonja’s famous Truffles. You‘ll enjoy a Hot Buffet Breakfast on Sunday morning at the Terrace Restaurant, then check out the anytime-snack bar when you’re hungry again. Scrap in the scrappin’ room until 5 pm.
