"This was our 2nd retreat and again we had an amazing time! Being a themed retreat, we weren't sure what to expect, but everyone was so enthusiastic and really participated in their own special way and we enjoyed participating as well! From the decor, to the activities, to the vendors, your retreats are filled with fun and excitement. It makes for such a wonderful bonding experience amongst new and old friends and we look forward to our next retreat with you!! Thanks so much for providing us with such great experiences!"
"After my friends attended one of your retreats,its all they could talk about. When they told me they were going to another one I signed up with them. The whole retreat from signing in to drawing the final raffle was AMAZING! Loved the location, crop space, raffles, vendors, classes, and Rosann! I signed up for my next retreat before leaving!"
"This was my first scrap-a-way retreat and couldn't have asked for more. Rosann was extremely accommodating, had a blast and met awesome people! Can't wait to go again!"
"I love the retreat idea in general, it's so great to spend a whole weekend away with my girlfriends and actually get work done on my albums. But going on a Scrap-A-Way retreat makes it so much better. You don't have to worry about any meals because they're all included. You get great games and prizes. Plus a nice variety of vendors to shop with. We never want it to end!"
"This was my third Scrap-A-Way and was great! I am addicted. I had so much fun, with such great women and I got 40 pages done!!! Signed up for my next one and can't wait! Thanks so much for doing this!"

What I am really enjoying now as well, are the new friends that I am making. Does not get any better than this....accomplishing something and having a wonderful time. Thank you Scrap-a-Way!!" Laura W.
"My sister and I had been searching for a retreat that combined decent room accomodations with excellent scrap space. Scrap-a-way by far has been the best retreat we have attended. The crop space was amazing, the raffle prizes were great quality items, and the accomodations were good. We will be attending more of these!"

"Perfect combination of fun and productive scrap time with more than enough space. great people!"

"I had a wonderful time! It's always fun to scrap with friends! The space is *AMAZING*! I'll be back for more!" - Barbara M.
"I really enjoyed the mix between scrap time and prizes. The music was perfect. Some retreats it is too loud or the room gets really chaotic. I felt like the noise level was a perfect balance. The music was just right, the games weren't overbearing, and the crop space was WOW..... food was very good.... This retreat was about the scrapping - and honestly, it should be. Great job!"
"This was my third Scrap-a-way retreat and as the first two, it was more than a great time! Everything was perfect. The other crafters were a blast. There is always something to look forward to from make and take classes to raffles and just plain fun stuff to do. I am so glad I found Scrap-A-Way Retreats (purely by accident!). Rosann and her crew put on a fabulous weekend event."
"This was such an incredible experience! This was my first retreat and I had a blast! Everyone was very friendly, welcoming and fun! The flip flap class I took was awesome and I have learned so much from a lot of the "scrappers". I'm looking foward to the November Scrap-a-way Retreat!!!"
"This was my first retreat with Scrap-a-way and I was very impressed. Great prizes, raffles, games; plenty of cropping space and the room wasn't crowded. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and will be signing up for more!"
"This was my 1st time @ anything like this...I won a free day on the Scrap-a-way prize wheel on-line & now I'm hooked! Probably spoiled me for going to any other...I'm sooo looking forward to my next Scrap-a-way Retreat & sitting with my NEW Table #9 Buddies! Everyone was great, Rosann is a DOLL, the prizes were awesome & the food...well...Congo bars, Ice-cream & homemade cookies...need I say more? The ONLY thing I wasn't happy with is, I didn't have enough TIME!!! Next time, I'm spending the WHOLE weekend! CAN'T WAIT! Thank you Rosann & Rachel!!!"

"This was by and far the best weekend retreat I have attended! The other scrappers were friendly and fun. The games and other "distractions" were just the right amount.... enough to give you a few minutes away from your project, but not enough that you felt like time was wasting away. Rosann and the gang did a fabulous job of making this a fun and productive weekend for everyone. Thank you, girls!"
2011 Rosann and crew definitely outdid yourselves..... They just keep getting better and better! Already looking forward to Nov. And next March and the next one after that etc. Etc
I haven't gone to other retreats before, but i have asked others how this one compares. everybody says this is the best one. they like the table all to themselves and the raffles are worth winning!! i am looking forward to the Warwick Radisson!!
It was wonderful the way you accommodated our group with the table set ups. The schedule had fun activities incorporated into it.
I have never done a scrap-a-way retreat. I am so glad I signed up!!! It was the BEST time I have ever had!!! Christine M.
With plenty of scrapping space and time, as well as great food and giveaways, you've spoiled me for any other scrapping retreat! I felt well cared for and there were just the right number of fun events and contests. Thank you for a great 3 days! Diane G.
This was my first Scrap-a-way Retreat...I had a blast! Every person had an 8-foot table of their own, the atmosphere was lively and fun, the venders were friendly, informative and willing to share tips, and the host and her retreat helpers were all very friendly. We had prizes, fun raffles, a 'Chinese auction', good food and a chocolate cake to die for! I would highly recommend this retreat to anyone. I am already signed up for the next one in November and will be going with a new friend that I met at this retreat. Thanks again for a memorable weekend. ....justwannacraft, CathyM
I am relatively new to scrapbooking and this was my first scrap-a-way retreat. I had a great time! The host was so friendly, had excellent raffle and door prizes, and kept the day fun with the 'page fairy'! The other scrapbookers were also friendly and so helpful (to a newcomer) as well. I will definitely be coming back in the near future!
I love the day long events by scrap-away. Many wonderful giveaways, plenty of time to work and the price is always right! Just enough time to get what I need to get done!
As always I had a great time! It is so fun. I love the shopping and get alot of pages done. Keep up the good work.
This was my first Scrap Retreat. I have to say from the food to the friendliness of the Scrap-A-Way Retreat organizers, I had a fantastic time. You get a lot for the money you spend. I highly recommend Scrap-A-Way Retreats!
I have been to two other weekend retreats, and this one was far and away the best one ever!! Plenty O'space, raffles, great times, and great price!! Definitely will return!
I've been scrapping for 12 years and this is the best crop I've been to. Tons of crop space...my sister was thrilled that for the first time ever I didn't have to invade her crop space. Great food, lots of fun, can't wait for the next one!
It was our first retreat and it exceeded our expectations! We talked with other veteran scrappers and they were impressed too. Instead of a once-in-a-while event, we definitely want to make it a regular event for us!
No stress, very relaxed, the best food and the most space ever in a crop.
I cannot wait to attend another event soon! Rosann ('and team'), you do a spectacular job.
I had a very memorable weekend.. This was my first time attending any kind of retreat. I went all by myself........ Everything was great and friendly. If anyone is debating whether to attend because they would be by them selves, just GO! You won't be disappointed.
The retreat was well-run, thoughtfully designed, and full of friendly people. The organizers definately "get" scrapbooking and took great care of us. Absolutely worth the money!
The retreat was very well organized and nicely run. Everyone involved was friendly, knowlegdable and ready to help in any way. The games, raffles, contests and prizes were great. Loved the pajama night!
We had a wonderful time at the Scrap-a-way Retreat this January. The space we were given to scrap was the best we have ever had. There were great give aways! GREAT JOB! See you in November.
I enjoyed the weekend very much i loved the line dancing....it woke me up LOL... the people were very welcoming since this was my very first time at a retreat... I had the best time meeting new people and learning new things.
This was a great weekend to finish a book that I had started months ago, but had not found the time in 'real life' to complete. The energy and creativity in the cropping room made it easy to 'scrap-a-way' into the wee hours of the night. Thank you!
This was my first experience with Scrap a way Retreats... and it wont be my last. Lots of space, and fun people to do one of my favorite hobbies with. Lots of instruction, tools if needed, great products to buy and many smiles... thanks for a fun time.
The Scrap-a-way retreat was lots of fun and the people were all so friendly, plus great vendors, too. I am looking forward to making this my annual retreat
