Flocking Fabulous Flamingo Retreat

I have something a little different for you today. A craft retreat! I highly recommend going to a Scrapbooking or Cardmaking Retreat at some point if you love to craft. I have lots of fun photos from the Flocking Fabulous Flamingo Retreat put on by Cactus Crew Scrapbooking that I attended this last weekend. Precautions were taken to keep all of us safe all weekend. We all had so much fun!

Here I am in my Fabulous Flamingo mask that my friend Amanda gave me. We have been to several craft retreats together and always have a great time. Usually Jeanne joins us, but she wasn’t able to come this time. We really missed her!

The retreat was held in a ballroom at a hotel in Mesa Arizona. Each person had an 8 x 3 foot table to themselves. The theme was Flamingos as you can tell from all the pink in the photo!

One of the ladies at my table did a great job with the decor!

Here Amanda and I are trying to stand on one foot like a Flamingo for the photo. Ha ha!

One of the unique things about this particular retreat was that there were classes offered. I took one on Watercolor Technique. These are actually stamps made to look like watercolor paintings. Fun!

Here is one card I made from a stamp set I purchased from one of the vendors. This totally speaks to me!

The sky was so beautiful in the evening!

After 4 days of crafting, I am exhausted! However, I will be back with a wonderful card for Wacky Wednesday using the Simply Succulent stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by today. I will have my usual Simple Stamping Blog Post next Tuesday.

Have a most wonderful week!



Hello, my name is Theresa. I have 4 children and a wonderful husband of 30 years. I am a retired Family Physician. I love having time now to create and craft, so much so that I became a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. I have been a demonstrator more than 5 years and am having a blast! Not only do I get to craft, I meet new friends from all over the world! Crafting gives me something positive to do and to share with others. I love to have my monthly Zoom Card Making Classes so others can craft with me. I have so much fun creating the cards for others to make! My blog was initially geared toward the beginner stamper in order to help others get started stamping on their own at home. If you need information to get started, look for my first blogs. My more recent posts have been cards and projects for Blog Hops and challenges. Stop by to see my projects and those of folks from around the world! Add more creativity to your life today!
