I have a different kind of blog post today...no projects , but a fun photo tour of my recent trip to Doodlebug Designs in Salt Lake City!!! I was so excited to go to the first ever Doodlebug Design Team Retreat! We were spoiled beyond description the entire weekend! Take a peek!!
We started off at Doodlebug Headquarters for a meet & greet. As you can see we were welcomed in a big way!
Each attendee had a box of goodies waiting for them!
Here's a close-up of our goody boxes!
The design room has anything and everything you could want to be crafty!!! Fun Fact: all of the rooms at the warehouse are painted in Doodlebug Colors!!!
and lets not forget the snacks....
After saying hello to everyone, we took a tour of the facilities...this is the lobby, painted in Limeade of course...
and check out the couch and pillows...so colorful! The little Ghouls from the Ghouls and Goodies collection were too cute!...Next onto the Showroom...it was chock full of all things Doodlebug! I spent a LOT of time here!
and the actual warehouse...
After the tour, we all jumped into a couple of cars and went to the cutest shopping area called Gardner Village. We walked around the different shops and picked up a few goodies!
After shopping, Cynthea treated us all to Benihana for dinner!
Saturday started off fabulously with a fun breakfast parfait bar full of fresh fruit & yogurt.
Here is my new friend Charlotte who came along with her mom Courtney...sweetest baby EVER! She smiled like this all weekend! Almost makes me want another...almost....
We spent the rest of the day working on some fabulous projects that some of the local girls had put together, After a morning full of crafting, we had a fabulous lunch which ended with these awesome Macaroons...in Doodlebug colors of course!
Back to crafting for the afternoon...and after a fun dinner out at Café Rio we came back to a fun and delicious chocolate fountain!
Are you catching onto the theme....crafting, eating, laughing repeat! After a VERY late night of crafting Saturday we were treated to the most delicious brunch catered by Chef Andrew from Bubble and Brown Bakery! The French toast was simply divine! I tried to talk him into moving to Boston!
The rest of the day was spent finishing up our projects...and of course we had to take pictures of them all!!! Here we all are in the lobby showing off our Christmas frames designed by Cynthea.
We also created some fun cards designed by Wendy Sue featuring Happy Camper, and an adorable mini album designed by Tya featuring Friendly Fall...can't show you close-ups, but you just might see them on the Doodlebug Blog this month!
Lori designed these FABULOUS pillows for us to create...we each got to pick our own saying and used some Iron-on vinyl to put them on our pillows!
Our last project was this fun painting project designed by Tonya. We painted these adorable wood signs provided by The Wood Connection.
The day wrapped up and most of the ladies headed home. Mendi and I weren't scheduled to fly out until Monday evening, so Cynthea picked us up at our hotel and took us out to a fabulous dinner in the mountains!
Finally, to top off an already amazing weekend, Mendi and I met up with these fun ladies from Lori Whitlock for lunch the next day!!! It was so fun to meet everyone!!

It was an absolutely fabulous weekend, and so nice to finally meet all of these ladies I've only known online! Special thanks to Cynthea, Tonya & Allison from Doodlebug for putting all of this together...no detail was left to chance! Also a big thanks to Wendy Sue, Lori, Tonya and Tya for putting together such fun projects for us!! That's it for me today!! Thanks for stopping by!
