Stampin/Scrapbooking/Crafting Retreat

Hi Stampers!

I'd like to invite you to a Stampin/Scrapbooking/Crafting Retreat my friend and fellow SU demo Tara Mowen is putting on.  It's January 7-8, 2011.  Tara and her husband Brad are in the process of adopting a baby from Ethiopia.  It's a very expensive process, so this is just one of the ways to help that out of pocket expense.  Tara and Brad have a blog you can visit if you'd like to ready more:  They are so close to getting the call that their baby(s) are waiting for them.

I wish I could attend, but we are leaving for Disneyworld on the 8th and I'm sure their will be so much to do.  Also, I'm sure it wouldn't fly with the hubby if I left him home alone with the kids to get the last minute stuff ready. :o)

All of the details are below as well as the registration form. . . You can contact Tara at 309-335-6225 or if you have any questions and/or to register!

Happy crafting!
