Spellbinders retreat photos and a giveaway!

Hi everyone!  Well I am back from the Spellbinders retreat and our short family vacation to The Great Wolf Lodge!  Whew.  What a crazy 10 days.  There is not one piece of fresh fruit, vegetable or clean clothing in this entire house -I kid you not.  Thank goodness Safeway delivers, cause I am toooooo tired to go shopping.

I have a couple photos to share of the retreat.  Unfortunately I didn't take many.  I'm not sure why I didn't take more pictures? I guess everyone around me was, so I figured I could get them to share?  It was such a magical time.  It's an amazing opportunity that Spellbinders gives their designers and I am very grateful to be a part of their family.
Anyway, here are a couple pictures I did take of me and some of the gals.
(and yes, I am playing around with my new photo editing app!)

Here is me and the vision and founder of Spellbinders, Stacey Caron -we were at The Fun Stamper's Journey home office
Here is a pic of me and Tina McDonald, who is now on the Inspiration Team, taken in our meeting room (in the background is Sherry Cheever!)
And finally, a collage of me and my roommate and fellow Spellblogger, Candy Rosenberg
me and my bestie, Theresa Momber
and at the bottom right is me and Becca Feeken (yes, she is a card making idol of mine!!)

So how about a little giveaway?

I have some amazing Bezels (which are part of the Media Mixage line) to give away along with some gently loved Christmas and Halloween 6x6 pads.

I will chose 2 winners, each will receive:
10 bezels of various sizes and shapes
1 pack of Kaisercraft Collectables
4 6x6 paper pads from My Mind's Eye, Basic Grey and others
As I continue to unpack I may even find a few other goodies to include!

To enter, just leave me a comment on this post.  I will announce the winners Thursday the 22nd to enter.  As always, you don't have to be a follower of any kind to enter.  But if you are not, I ask that you check back to see if you won.  The winners will have 2 days to contact me with their information.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great evening!!

  12. Hi Michelle. Looks like you all had a great time. Sorry that you have that "been away" house today! Remember you don't have to do it all in one go. The food is sorted (such a great idea)and just launder enough to give each person a change of clothes, then worry about the rest tomorrow. My fingers are tightly crossed for the giveaway. Take care.
