Then, I went off to Wisconsin for a Club Scrap Retreat. Now, I cannot tell you much, right now, about the retreat. In order for the October Retreat guests and those ordering the "Retreat in a Box" kit to have a lot of fun and excitement I needed to make a "Pinkie Swear" to not divulge any of the details. Let me say for now that it was very fun, extremely friendly and not quite what I expected. I did walk away with some new skills or, more rather, more confidence in my skills. Loved the "stuff", loved the techniques and would be happy to attend again.
Speaking of lack of details, the winner of the BPC class give away from my prior post is the second Gail who commented
Great post! Thanks for the chance to win the BPC gift...I am hoping to take the Becky Higgins class to end out the year. I started with Twelve and also able to fit in the Art of Observation...now I'm just saving up for Beckys Project Life type class so a gift card would help a lot...Thanks!
All I know is that she is in the "Twelve" class with me at BPC right now. So, Ms. Gail, please send your e-mail address to me at email@example.com.
Yes, summer is still here and there are more giveaways to come. Since I've been speaking of Club Scrap I think the next prize should be a Club Scrap "Bold Blooms" Jr scrapbooking kit picture below. It's a $39 value. To enter, leave a comment on this post.

Just a few thoughts about my trip to Green Bay. It's a beautiful mid-western small city with an amazing phenomenon in the Green bay Packers. The tours of Lambeau Field and the Packer Hall of Fame were definite highlights of my trip. I am not a raving football fan either. It's just a very special piece of America and so very interesting. I took a boat trip down the Fox River and learned a lot about the history and industry of this city. I highly recommend that, too.
Now, this photo above is a fun surprise. The children's garden at the small, but thoroughly beautiful, Botanical Garden has a kaleidoscope where you spin the bowl and see the lovely images change. I took some photos and was delighted by the results. I loved those gardens and would visit again!
The Regatta 220 at 465 Marina Way is a delightful place to eat. So, if you decide to attend the October Club Scrap retreat - I DO recommend that- you might want to check out Regatta220 for an alternate to steaks and burgers (they serve beef but it's not their specialty) and the Titletown Brewing Company is another spot with good pub food and beer. Take advantage of the Captain's Walk Winery visit that Club Scrap offers as an additional event for the early arrivals at the retreat. Well worth the extra $20.
I'll say no more!
