Each month as
you know we feature layouts
from our Members gallery in our newsletter! It's a great place to
get inspiration from fellow subscribers on how to use your kits!
So start uploading your layouts today! you just might find your
layout in our next newsletter!
of this month's featured layouts is from Tomomi's
layout uses our January main kit and i LOVE how she
incorporated the paint from Kaisercrafts into her layout!
She used it to create texture to the paper behind the
picture. I also love how she handcut out the birds from
Melody Ross's paper and put them into her layouts as well!
CHANGING!! So as I mentioned above, in February, I was able
to attend the retreat put on by my dear friend, Melody
Ross and her sister Kathy, called
Girls Camp. She
invited me to come as a guest.... and I thought.. sure! why
not?! I will sleep, relax.. catch-up with friends (my
dear friend Margie
attending as well)....
just hang out. I Almost didn't go.. as I had so much
work to do, trying to get our new BeadArt website up.. but I
knew I needed the break or I would burn out. So I hopped on
a plane and went. First let me say, I have attended
several events/retreats over the years in the
scrapbooking/art industry.. so I thought I knew what I was
in for.. boy was I wrong!!! (and that is an understatement)...
From the moment I got into the shuttle, that takes you up to
the retreat (it's in the mountains, up at a cabin)..
I knew this was going to be different. We were all given a
sweet little gift bags, filled with personal notes from the
Brave Girls staff, yummy treats, and wonderful music to
enjoy on the way up. Our host, Melody Ross, wasn't on the
shuttle.. but when we arrive just down the road from where
we would be staying the shuttle stopped and we could see
Mel, walking up, arm and arm with other wonderful Brave Girl
staff.. ready to greet us. I can't tell you everything that happened,
because if you go.. I want it to be a wondrous surprise..
but I can say from that moment on.. was WOW.. indescribable.
From the detail of the decor (personal pictures strung
everywhere on the walls, over the doors..) from the most
delicious handmade food.. to the wonderful music..(i can
still hear the song they played each night when dinner was
everybody wants to love...everybody everybody wants to be
I was just so NOT prepared for what I was going to get out
of this event.. I could talk about it all day long.. infact
I do! lol.. I share it with all my friends and family.. all
the women I know and love.. because if there is ONE thing
you should do for yourself.. you NEED to go this event.. I
call it Art Therapy.. it was the most unforgettable
experience I have had in a very long time. I keep saying
life changing.. but I mean it.. it was life
am going to be posting more about it on my blog in the next
week.. but I just wanted to show you a tidbit of the things
we did.. Art Therapy.. Good stuff.. This is a book I created
while I was there (one of many).. an altered book (which
by the way, is put together by the way ENTIRELY with Mod
Podge!! I am addicted now!!) but this one was a book to
myself.. Dear Christy.. (wont say more.. you have to go
to find out what I am talking about).. but this book has
so much meaning for me.. anyhow.. I just had to share a
little bit of my experience with you.. The people I met
there.. including staff and the other attendees (there
was 30 of us total including staff.. they keep it very
intimate).. will be life long friends... over the week I
learned so much about each one of them.. about myself.. and
wow.. we are amazing BRAVE women!
has 3 more coming up this year.. I believe is in this
event so much, I am going again in October, not as an
attending this time, but to volunteer as one of the
host/staff helpers.. I want to every year.. as I truly
believe it changes lives! I can't wait to be apart of that
for someone else.. So if you are thinking about
going.. GO.. do it! It's worth it.. you will never regret
it.. can't even explain it!
for letting me share!
