12"x12" single page layout
Each year I take a photo of just the Christmas Tree right before I go to bed on Christmas Eve. I decided to make this page to just feature the tree. I liked this idea so much I'm trying to go back through each Christmas layout and create a matching single page layout for just the tree. What a way to create small traditions in our family! I love the opportunity to create a lasting legacy for my children.

All New Quarterly Crop Retreat

Come join the fun
at the all new quarterly
Crop Retreat

What is a Crop Retreat?: A crop retreat is a full 8 hour day of cropping away from distracting influences (kids, animals, husbands, should do list, cars, sirens). It is done on a quarterly basis (every 3 months). Available to you is space to work on your current project, lunch and snacks, optional movie or music, electrical outlets at each table, die cutting area and a seasoned instructor (ME) as well as optional projects, prizes, give aways, FREEbies. Essentially its a Retreat for less $ out of pocket over a full year.

When does the crop retreat begin?: Our first crop retreat is Sat., Jan., 9th, 2016  

What Time: 9am to 5pm

Location: Outskirts of Tucson (in pima county, 35-40 min drive from center of Tucson) details when you commit!

Cost of each Crop Retreat: $40 in product purchases (before tax and shipping) from ninasartspot.ctmh.com. *(Reminder will have a direct link for the Crop Retreat orders)
Orders are placed 2 weeks prior to each retreat date.
  ~> so this is a $160 commitment over a full year (and you get to keep all the product you purchase) This is a lot less than the $175 - $200+ for a 3-4 day retreat
