Lori's Tahoe Retreat

Once or twice a year 16 or so scrapbookers and rubber stamping Ladies rent a huge home in Lake Tahoe for a 3 day weekend and we work away at making whatever it is we want. All the furniture in the main room is moved aside and we all have work space.

We do a combined dinner the first night, it was a baked potato bar this time. The second night, we usually go out to eat. Breakfast and Lunch is on your own, but many places are nearby.

One day we were treated to this great snack, make it, you will like it!!!!!!

One of the ladies made this cute tag with baker's twine.

Another made this adorable jewelry frame, the metal is decorative radiator grates from Home Depot,
inside a scrapbook or record album frame with cork inside.

We always do secret sister gifts and I was the lucky recipient of this beautiful photo album! 
Such a lot of work and so pretty.
I did go to the Casinos for about an hour with 2 of the gals, broke even , so that was good.
All in all, a great time was had by everyone!!!

What Andy said: “Girls weekends are the best...” My wife is in need of one. She always comes home so refreshed, relaxed, happy.... Thanks Lori. Wonderful weekend; wonderful post. I'm going to make sure Lori, wife Lori, sees it.
