Our Scrap N Camp 2007 was a "Vegas" style success!!!
Everyone had a blast!!, and we are able to make a great donation to the Denny Carr Secret Santa Foundation again this year!! Our guests came through again and donated over 100 new toys for the cause too! Laura Giesbrecht came out and did pedicures and manicures and donated a portion of her proceeds back and Mark Depeel (my Dad) donated a beautiful framed photograph, which we raffled off. Mark Wurtz and the Rosthern Youth Farm Bible Camp came through once again for us, and gave us a fantastic setting for our camp!! As well, many Saskatoon and area businesses donated prizes etc to us so we could make the weekend special for everyone who attended. A HUGE Thank You goes out to our very own "Elvis", he knows who he is, and we love him :) lol
No one can tell the story of the weekend quite as well as Karen "Olga" Pidskalny, who has attended our camps and been one of our best cheering sections right from the start!! Thanks Karen!! The following reprort on our camp was wonderfully written by her and I have 'borrowed' it from the http://www.scrapablemoments.com forums. Scrapable Moments is a fantastic site with forums a gallery and and a great online store :) You should check it out. Anyway without further wait, here's Karen's report!!!:
Rovering Reporter Olga, here bringing you the latest and the greatest from this weekend's Scrap n' Camp, 2007.
The theme this year was Viva Las Vegas! True to Vegas fashion, some gambling was done, plenty of entertainment, amazing food buffets and little sleep was had by many.
The weekend began with party arrivals, hugs for some and room assignments. Tables were chosen and then bags, totes and crates of scrappin supplies were hauled in.
The scrappin began........
The Vegas style challenges start with design a Vegas style name tag. There was bling, die, feathers and then there was the stripper tag. This one came complete with cards, money for slot machines, fish net stockings and a condom served on a disposable plate. A well known entertainer named it the full meal deal.
Friday night ran into Saturday morning and that was when the night life began. The Snorers Chorus was in full tune and played for the rest of the night until the sun cracked the horizon. It was only then their silence was experienced by snapping some photos of the sunrise.
Saturday was filled with scrappin, laughin and plenty of visiting. After the evening meal, the PJ party began.....
Loud music blarred over the room to make you stop what you were doing. You look around the room and to the sky and there he was, the
KING of ROCK n ROLL, Elvis!!!!
Can you spell scream, excitment, thrilling,
He sang Viva Las Vegas and Love Me Tender. I know that most of you will think that the kiss he blew was for one of the DT members but I know that wink was for me.
He then wiped his brow and threw the towel to us adoring, screaming ladies. I ran and grabbed it. Ahhhh! Elvis' sweat is on that towel.
Elvis was kind enough to stop and pose for some photos with us too.
Who could sleep after all that excitment? Not us talkers.
The snorers chorus was doing a repeat performance so some of us decided to take in another performance and enjoy the company of the Baby Bon Bons. Her performance lulled many of us to sleep.
There was an agent in the room and was trying to squeeze some information out of me while I was sleeping. They got me talking but lucky for me, my scrambler was on so all my information was incoherent to her.
So, in a nutshell, that was Scrap n' Camp 2007. There was about 209 pages scrapped this weekend. Plenty of prizes for every one.
Really, it was awesome! To those who did the organizing of the weekend, Thank you! Most of us had a fabulous time and are ready to sign up again for next year. You deserve huge hugs for a fantastic job, well done again!!
Looking forward to next year. Some of us gamblers were already trying to figure out what could be next year's theme. I guess we will have to wait.
This is Rovering Reporter Olga keeping you up to date on a wild and crazy weekend. Hoping to see a few more additional faces next year.
Have a good one!
