Scrapbook Retreat in Tennessee

I’ve spent the weekend scrapbooking, scrapbooking, and crafting. A LSS in middle TN (Scrapbook’It in Cookeville) hosted a scrapbook retreat over the weekend. Yes, we’re talking Friday through Sunday! I’m not sure I’ve ever scrapped so much consecutively. I’m pretty much scrapped out!

Needless to say, I’m exhausted! Here are some photos from the weekend:

Talk about feeling inadequate! These were serious scrapbookers. We’re talking Cricut Expressions, mega Ott Lights, and tiers upon tiers of scrapbook supplies! My poor pile of supplies didn’t seem to live up to everyone else’s stash.

 There was no chance of running out of drinks and snacks!

I sat with a very fun bunch of ladies! Made the weekend even more enjoyable. 🙂

 This was our table Saturday morning (after having scrapbooked until the wee hours of the morning the night before).

 And this is what happens when it gets late and you’re trying to keep yourself awake! I’ve been forbidden to post the video that goes with this photo. 😉

I’m LOVING this idea for ribbon. Definitely *borrowing* it and trying it at home.

And this is my favorite layout I made over the course of the weekend. And, of course, I didn’t make nearly as many pages as I thought I would!!

It was a fantastic retreat! The owner of Scrapbook’It, Samantha, is fantastic. If you’re in TN next time this crop comes around, try to come! 🙂

That’s it. I’m mentally shutting down until Monday! Happy weekend!

I have started truncating my posts to avoid having my content stolen. I hope you’ll click over to finish reading the post. Thank you for understanding!

The CKC Convention is in middle TN in October and there is usually a crop associated with it. Another place to look is There is a retreat in east TN in September ( There is also a GREAT scrapbook not far from this retreat (Scrapbook Superstore). There is also a store in Knoxville that is very active and hosts classes and other event (
