Help Us Win A Half-Priced Retreat

I mentioned in yesterday's post that there is a way that you can help us win a half-priced retreat to Scrappin' Goodtime in Corsicana, Texas. "Us" is simply the group of BPC students that got together last week to meet in real life and crop together. Six of us participated, but if we win the contest we will be able to host a retreat for 14 croppers! I'm pretty sure I can find a time to fit in another retreat this year.

Basically all we have to do to win this competition is have the most comments AND likes on our group photo that's posted on the Scrappin' Goodtime Facebook page. The ladies at the store/retreat center didn't really understand how online classes and blogs worked or how we had so many friends online. We, of course, were bragging/boasting about how great the classes and students and teachers at BPC are and how we were sure we could win this contest just because there are so many of us in each class and how we have lots of online friends through our blogs.

Now here's where you come in. If you have a Facebook account, PLEASE jump over & leave a comment AND like our photo. We certainly don't want all ourTexas sized bragging to go to waste! :>) And we want to support this great LSS & retreat! Click here to comment AND like our photo and help us win!

Speaking of planning another retreat makes me want to thumb through my calendar & check available dates, which reminds me of this layout I created that documents a yearly ritual.

Journaling reads: Despite the fact that we live in an increasingly digital society, I still love a paper calendar and the ritual of setting it up every year. It's color-coded and keeps me organized and on time very day!

Thanks in advance for your help in the retreat contest. I'll let you know if when we win in case you want to join us!


  1. have been over and liked your photo x

  2. Did my part to help out!! I hope you win the retreat....to bad I'm so far away.

  3. done! and since you'll each be able to invite at least one friend, you can put my name in the drawing to win that 1/2 price spot! ;)

  4. Glad all is well in Texas and that you are staying busy. Looks like the crop was really fun! :) And I finally succumbed to digital calendars. I loved the ritual of having a paper calendar too but always abandon it sometime through the year. It just didn't make sense to do it anymore. Glad to see there's still a holdout out there!

  5. I am a paper calendar girl, too! Off to "like" and comment ;)

  6. Been and done it..good luck Melissa!
