I had never been to " a crop" before, and to be honest was not thrilled about
the idea of scrapbooking all day with a bunch of women I don't know....UNTIL I

Just wanted to thank you again for a great day yesterday.  You really
are an amazing host that makes everyone feel at home.  I definitely
look forward to your future retreats.  
~ I left this wonderful retreat ... totally PUMPED! It was quite a revelation to

Thank you so much for these wonderful memories, for this immeasurably fun day
... with so much available learning opportunities ... I feel the day is one of amazing

I would like to mention that "scrapping" at your Scrap Away Retreats is very
relaxing.  There is no competitiveness, everyone is happy to work on their albums
and share their expertise.  There is no urgency to complete a project, or annoying
competitions that can interrupt your thoughts.  
I also like that nobody is blowing a whistle to say 'Time to eat' or 'Everyone
listen up!'.  In short, it's low key and very easy going, and everyone can do their
own thing and feel supported at the same time.  And it helps that Shauna has
supplies for everyone, and is ready to order in whatever is needed.

Shauna's Moto is "I am here to serve you" and boy is she NOT kidding!
Shauna's retreats offer so much and more. A relaxed and welcoming
environment, bright and spacious work areas, an on site store when you are
looking for that perfect paper or embellishments. If you are looking for great
company, new friendhsips and a fantastic host - Shauna's Retreats are the place
to be!  
Thank you!  We had a great time!  

Had a rollicking good time at the Christmas Party at Scrap Away
Retreat with Margo Mooney, Mother and the other ladies! Thanks for all

catered and special! You out do yourself every time!

I attended Shauna's Christmas Scrap Away Retreat on December 4th.
It was wonderful. Besides the Christmas atmosphere, Shauna provided
great working space, an on site store, several mini workshops, and a
delicious lunch. Many worked from 9:00 am to 10: pm. It's amazing
how much work you can get done in that amount. Card makers are
also welcome. Shauna is available for whatever help you might need.
I must tell you that you radiate with love.  You are so sincere and
genuine.  Your retreats are one of my favorite things to do.  You warm
my heart in your presence.  I look forward to seeing you in the fall.  
Have a great summer.

Shauna, I just want to thank you again for yesterday's  retreat. I truly
enjoyed the entire day including meeting a group of great women and
sharing ideas with each other. The card making card was fun and yes I
did learn a few new and exciting techniques. You were a kind and
gracious host who really took care of the group. I can't wait until your
retreat start up again in the fall.
