Being busy moms, wives, career women, and, um ... scrapbookers (duh!), we loved to crop for weekends at a time, but could only find quality 3-day crops at least an hour from home. With home for each of us being in south Orange County, we hated being so far away from the baseball games, birthday parties and family activities that would only last an hour or two. By being away from home, but not TOO far away, we can get away with the girls while still taking time to cheer on our favorite slugger!
Plus, having all of us being long time scrapbookers, we knew what we wanted in a quality crop - and we've set out to provide it!
For starters, we're staying at the Staybridge Suites in Lake Forest. (see picture above) This hotel is less than a year old and absolutely gorgeous! Vaulted ceilings, big windows with lots of natural light, comfy, spacious rooms and a meeting room that's got plenty of cropping space, plus a staff that's friendly and SO easy to work with! And they are delighted we're going to be cropping there!
We're providing ALL of the meals. That's right, ALL! Full buffet breakfast, catered lunches and dinners from local restaurants, plus snacks all day long. You just bring your favorite beverages!
And did we mention the free stuff? Goodies at your seat every day, raffles all day long, every day, make and takes sponsored by local stores and scrapbooking manufacturers, optional contests with FABULOUS prizes - hey, if we wouldn't be impressed by it ourselves, we won't do it! We want you to feel like a VIP because we're going to be right there cropping with you and WE want to feel like VIPs!
So, add this link to your favorites, comment as you like and we'll keep you posted as to the FUN plans we have in the works. But not ALL of them ... some of them need to be a pleasant surprise! We promise you won't be disappointed!
We're looking forward to that last weekend in April - and hope you are too!
