Win a free Weekend

We are giving away a gift certificate for a 3 day weekend retreat at Scrap-N-Away. The drawing will be held on Christmas Eve. All you have to do is leave us a comment. You may leave one comment per day from now until Christmas Eve.... that's 23 chances to win !!!

Want more chances to WIN? Tell your friends to leave us a comment with your name and you will get your name in the drawing not once more not even twice more but 3 more times! SO what are you waiting for ....start telling your scrapbooking buddies now.Tell them not to forget to mention your name. Anyone want to play?

GOOD LUCK EVERYONE. WE CAN'T WAIT TO SEE YOU!

Here is a recipe I thought you might enjoy. I'm make this for my grandson's. We always have so much fun playing with play dough....this year I found some great Neon colors and Black (the black makes great bugs!) I can't wait to see what they think of the Neon colors. This makes a great stocking stuffer or let the kids make it to give as gifts to their friends.

Play Dough

1 C. Flour
1 C. Warm Water
2 t. Cream Of Tartar
1 t. Oil
1/4 C. Salt
Food Coloring
Mix all ingredients, adding food coloring last.
Stir over medium heat until smooth. Remove from pan and knead until blended smooth. You might possibly have to add more flour (like bread). Place in a plastic bag or airtight container when cooled.

Watch for more Christmas ideas.

HI Bonnie,
I really enjoyed your blog! It is one of the
best I have seen! Setting up a family blog
is on my New Years list of thing to do!
If I win a free weekend, I will use some
of my home scrapbooking time to set up a blog instead!
Take care!
Sheila

To Bonnie;
My Scrap-n-Away Poem

With cropper hoppers loaded,
and a full gas tank,
We head out for girls weekend,
with Bonnie to thank!

We know the hot jacuzzi,
will relieve us of our chills,
We crank up the music,
and head for the hills!

The thought of the Cricut machine,
really makes me quiver,
And when it comes to a comfy bedroom,
I know Bonnie will deliver!!

By the time we head home,
our scrapbook pages will be filled.
I can't wait to show my family...
I know they will be thrilled!!

The weekend was FABULOUS!!
Our hostess Bonnie is SO sweet!
I am ready to come back soon.
And dream of a free retreat!!
