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 28 years. I am a retired Family Physician who loves creating and crafting, so much so that I became a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. I have been a demonstrator for almost 5 years. Not only do I get to craft, I get to travel and meet new friends from all over the world. Crafting gives me something positive to do and share with others. I love having people over to stamp cards with me. My blog is geared toward the beginner stamper. I want to help others get started stamping in their own home. Come join me!
