Ok... It's Time to Get Busy!

I worked on retreat stuff last night and WOW!  I cannot believe it!  WE ARE SO FULL!!!  60 scrapbookers is a LOT, especially for 4 DAYS!!!

Are you ready?  Have you been thinking about it?  I'm wanting to start a contest or something to get people signed up as a follower of THIS blog... I'm open to ideas!  Giving tickets away is obvious!  Give me another idea... and leave it here in the comments.

Let's get this party STARTED!


  1. Yay we are really looking forward to Branson. Beth, Judi and I may drive down there next weekend and check out the hotel. I wonder if the scrapbook store will have any specials for President's Day weekend?

  2. Oops I forgot to mention my idea. For everyone who posts on your blog, you could enter us all in a drawing for a small prize. The only way to get entered is to post. . .

  3. Suzy! I love that idea! I'm gonna run with it! Thanks!

  4. Okay, I'm posing... don't forget my entry for a prize.

    Seriously can't wait for April and to see everyone and get some scrapbooking done.

  5. Hey, hey, hey, I'm responding too! I want to get a jump start, maybe get some photos printed and ready to scrapbook.

    So, anyone want to get in on swaps? Maybe a ticket per swap? But, if someone doesn't come through on a swap they've signed up for, then they won't get the ticket.

    I'm getting so excited!

  6. I am super excited!! This is my second retreat with the Crazy Croppers and am staying an extra night this time cause the last one was so fun! I've already been planning and organizing and of course, shopping for goodies. Can't wait!!

  7. Ok I had never blogged before this so here it goes...
    I haven't been to your retreats but I had heard such good things from Krista at Scrapbooks Forever I couldn't resist. I need some more info on the swap. I can't wait to experience this retreat. See everyone soon.

  8. Last weekend Suzy, Judi, and I stopped into Scrapbooks Forever and the Stone Castle Hotel. I think it's going to be a very comfortable place to stay. I personally like the fact they've got some sitting areas in various parts of the motel and outside too. When I feel a creative block I like to go outside and take in some fresh air. Oh it'll be much warmer when April rolls around!

  9. Okay, here is a CRAZY idea to get people to blog :) We are CRAZY CROPPERS!!

    We go through the alphabet and the first person to comment will list something "scrapbooky" or "retreaty" that starts with the letter "A". The next person to comment will do letter "B", and so on. You cannot comment two letters in a row, but you can do more than one time through the alphabet. For each comment you get a ticket. Once we get through that we can do some other set. How about that Janis?

    Just a thought to keep the blog hopping!!


  10. Hmmm, Michelle. I'm gonna have to put some thought to that... what does everyone else think? Good idea? We need to get a lot more people using the blog, I think! I'm even thinking about a "recruiting blog worth a ticket". I'm open to ALL kinds of ideas!
