Scrapbook Your Heart

This weekend, I participated in one of the most amazing experiences of my life.  I went to Scrapbook Your Heart retreat at Camp Caroline, hosted by Alison Orthner and Christy Riopel.

Ladies, this is an amazing affirmation experience! I highly recommend it to anyone.  I have never cried so much, felt so empowered and cherished and strong as I did surrounded by all these women on this weekend.  I cannot wait until next year and I am going to bring along as many women as I can possibly find with me.

So here are two of the three projects we created.  The first is an altered canvas encompassing all the things that bring us joy.  I loved all the different mixed media aspects we got to use, paints, mod podge, inking, stamping, so fun to get all dirty.  This is mine

This now proudly sits in my living room.  This is the first time I had ever done an altered canvas and I thought that Christy was out of her mind for putting this together, however, once I got into it, it was the most fun that I’ve had in a long time.  I cannot wait to do more.

The other was a fabulous layout designed by our lovely Guest Designer Diana Kennedy.  It has been a long long time since I have done a layout of myself but I am in love with this one!

Behind the picture is an envelope with a personal letter to myself about my life’s journey so far and the one I hope to have going forward.

Again, an amazing weekend with amazing women and I hope that you all have the chance to experience it next year. a

  1. I met Alison at Bull River this year and I have met Christy a number of times. They are great ladies that pull the best of a person to the surface. I am so pleased that you had a great experience with them, too.
