I am on my way home...I still haven't slept & I am totally wrecked but it was alll worth it.
You'll have to excuse any errors - I can blame it on the lack of sleep this time LOL.

The Embellished Retreat was maginificent...sensational...bloody marvellous.

The following words are a pathetic attempt at describing what a wonderful time I had -- at this time I cannot article anything really - much less how great the retreat was.

I have FINALLY met THE Ali Russell & let me tell you it was all I dreamed & more...she is wonderful & beautiful & has a heart of gold!!!! What an absolute priviledge to call her my friend!!! Love you Ali!!!

And the sensational women I met at the retreat OH MY GOD!!!! These ladies are absolutely precious bunch of ladies...and the men I met - Glenn & Noel - these guys are treasures I tell you - absolute treasures!!!!

I am making sure that we make it a family affair next year - all the Slatterys will be jumping on that plane & heading towards the light hahahahahaaha

In anutshell - I have had VERY little sleep - but it has been well worth Aerosmith said " I don't wanna close my eyes, I don't wanna fall asleep & I don't wanna miss a thing" and that was 100% true.

In typical Embellished fashion the classes were GORGEOUS, there were laughs galore & an incredible sense of comraderie - DAMN I love those girls!!!!

Unfortunately I am posting prematurely - so there are no pics to accompany my ramble...if I wake up tomorrow I might post after I have caught up on what feels like a month full of snuggles that I have missed from my darlings.

Well I've got a while before my flight boards - so I'm going to head over to the Embellished forum & check out what the girls are up to.

See you when I get home.

I'm thinking from that post - you had an absolute ball.

Look forward to seeing your creativity and pics.

Have a cracker sleep tonight in your own bed.

WOW Kelly glad you had a blast and let me tell you I will not be missing it next year.

Can't wait to see your creations from the retreat and some photos.

Hope you have a good sleep.

I'm glad you had such a good time Kelly. I'm sure we'll be seeing lots of layouts from you shortly as I bet you were super productive over there (as usual)!
