This past weekend we headed out to Conroe Texas to have our 2014 annual retreat. We had the best time with the 16 ladies who attended and came away with some amazing new friends and awesome projects!
We had our event at a lovely retreat venue called Aunt Fayes Country Retreat. The weekend started with a bang and guest teacher Cat Woody began with her Altered Art Reliquary Doll class. Cat is an award winning doll artist and her class was amazing and all the ladies came up with the most awe inspiring dolls!

We also had a Gecko Challenge where all the Ladies were given a product kit and asked to make a project and the winners won fab Gecko Galz prizes along with other goodies. Our Winners were Trudi Hutton, Rosie Perez, Heather Hudson, and Terri Burnette!

Rosie Perez with her wizard of Oz plaque
Heather Hudson with her amazing Circus Book
Terri Burnette with her wonderful School Days mini book
Also because our theme was the COWGIRL DIVA RETREAT we had our Cowgirl diva hat contest which everyone who created a hat really went all out!
