Fall Retreat Weekend

We are back from a very enjoyable and successful Fall Retreat Weekend!  We had 105 guests join us for a weekend of scrapbooking on the sunny shores of Lake Huron and it was just perfect.  Everyone enjoyed 3 full days of creating, relaxing, eating, sleeping, laughing, making new friends, and enjoying wonderful times.  We offered a couple of classes, had demos of new products and played a few challenging games.

One of our favourite activities was the Photo Scavenger Hunt that our friends participated in.  Everyone enjoyed that activity as it provided the opportunity for some outdoor time in the sun while bonding with their group.  As a bonus photo we asked each group to provide us with a photo that best represents what the Two Scrapbook Friends Retreat Weekend means to them.  Here is a collage of the photos that were submitted.


You can see more details and the captions for the photos on our Facebook page here:  Facebook. Thank you to all the wonderful guests who joined us for the weekend.  We commented to each other on the way home what a great group of ladies you were.  It is weekends like this that make us look forward to the next one!  Details about our Spring Retreat will be released shortly.  We hope you decide to join us :)

We hope to have our boxes unpacked and the store back in order within a couple of days.  We have some great new products to share with all of you!  See you soon.

October Sketch & Crafty Challenge!!

Hey Everyone, it's Amanda and it is my turn to host our monthly Sketch & Crafty challenge!  This month I thought I would switch things up a bit.....I created a card sketch instead of a layout sketch. With Christmas coming, I figured that everyone would be starting to think of making their Christmas cards, and this could give you some inspiration.


I created my card to go along with a thank you gift I made for a co-worker.  I dug deep into my stash to find paper I already had in order to make these projects.  This brings me to the sketch and the challenge.


My challenge for you is to create something using my sketch (layout, card, etc) and the crafty portion of the challenge is to dig deep into your stash and use some older supplies you have been hoarding......because we all do that!


So that's it.  Sketch + Dig Deep = $25 gift certificate to TSF!!!!

As always we have a prize to give away but please remember, in order to qualify and be in with a chance of winning, you must use both the Sketch and Crafty element of the challenge. Here are our few simple rules:
