"First of all, let me say what a wonderful experience all 7 of us had last weekend in Newport Beach. The hotel was beautiful, the rooms wonderful, the food terrific and the hosts were stupendous. I am usually the one who finds something wrong with something and it just didn't happen at all. We were so impressed with your first class operation and totally look forward to another experience. I hope you all enjoy a most blessed Easter and possibly a good rest. You deserve it. Thanks, once again, for the best weekend I've had in a long, long time."

"This retreat was my first experience with Cropping Away and I have to say that ALL OF MY EXPECTATIONS WERE EXCEEDED. I almost finished an entire album of a year's worth of pictures (usually it takes me a year to put together one album). The accommodations were superb, the cropping room (and snacks) were great, the meals were wonderful, the classes were helpful, and my fellow croppers, well, they were fun and fabulous!!! My group cropped on Friday and Saturday and hit the spa on Sunday, and could not have asked for a more perfect weekend. I will definitely be returning...hopefully in September!!! Thank you again ... it was a wonderful weekend!!!"

"Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say what a great weekend I had at your La Quinta Retreat!  I was able to get lots of pages completed, but the best part for me was to meet so many friendly and talented scrapbookers!  I came away with some new CA friends and tons of new ideas that I can try at home.  I also enjoyed the classes on Saturday.  My daughter was thrilled with the circle chipboard album I made, and I'm anxious to finish the altered book that I started. I felt like the luckiest person of the weekend -- winning both the tote bag and the BigShot (not to mention the other goodies).  My luggage was a tad heavier on the way home to CT, but it was totally worth it.  My sister-in-law and I are already talking about making the trip again next fall.  Makes it easier to tolerate my husband's business trips when I know I can use his frequent flyer miles to help fund the trip…Hope you are enjoying some downtime after the weekend -- I can't imagine how much planning it must take to organize such a successful event. Looking forward to next year!"

"I just wanted to write and let you know what a great time my sister in law and I had in Palm Springs. We couldn't stop talking about it!! I want you to know that I appreciate all the hard work you and your family put in this retreat! It did not go unnoticed! You can really tell you put your heart into this business. We had a fabulous time and we will definitely be back!! Hope you see you soon!!"

"Ali and I wanted to tell you what a wonderful time we had this weekend.  The room was wonderful (even if we only spent time sleeping in it), the food was great, the scrap room was really nice, and the massages were a treat.  She got 63 pages finished and I got 55 pages done so I think we can call it a total success.  We always have such a relaxing time at your retreats and we can’t wait to spend time together doing our hobby.  Thank you for all of your hard work and we are looking forward to come to another Croppin' Away Retreat."
-Michele and Ali

"This was my first time and I had a wonderful time.  The resort was beautiful and the table space was excellent.  I was overwhelmed with all of the new things I discovered at this crop.  Thank you so much for hosting such a wonderful event.  It was fabulous! I will be back next year for sure."
