Here is what a typ­i­cal sched­ule will look like:

Sun­day, Sept 19 – Arrive and reg­is­ter dur­ing the after­noon. Enjoy a com­ple­men­tary wel­come cock­tail recep­tion with a fab­u­lous buf­fet din­ner. And don’t for­get your danc­ing shoes because we’ll be learn­ing some Greek dance steps!

Mon­day Sept 20 – Get an intense three-hour les­son from the incom­pa­ra­ble Ali Edwards in the morn­ing. In the after­noon, enjoy some down­time by the gor­geous pool (with a lit­tle umbrella drink!) or get out and explore the mean­der­ing pas­sages of Mykonos town. Scrap with your new friends after the evening cock­tail hour and buf­fet at our nightly crop and make-n-take.

Tues­day, Sept 21 – Learn pho­to­graphic tech­niques from a master…Karen Rus­sell. Take in four and a half hours of world-class instruc­tion from Karen in the morn­ing. Prac­tice new tech­niques in the after­noon dur­ing the Daisy Diva mini-workshops then sign up for an optional tour of the entire island or a Greek culi­nary class (addi­tional fee will apply) or enjoy the town on your own. Social­ize dur­ing our happy hour and enjoy a deli­cious al fresco buf­fet din­ner. Par­tic­i­pate in an open crop and make-n-takes dur­ing the evening.

Wednes­day, Sept 22 – In the morn­ing, you’ll learn more in a three hour class taught by scrap­book­ing celebrity, Jenni Bowlin and in the after­noon you’ll enjoy your sec­ond four and a half hour ses­sion with Karen Rus­sell.

Thurs­day, Sept 23 – Take the best pic­tures of your life on the fas­ci­nat­ing and beau­ti­ful island of Delos. Your day will include your boat ride to and from Delos, a guided tour of the spec­tac­u­lar ruins and a chance to explore the island and museum on your own. Lunch will be pro­vided. We’ll ensure you arrive in style, see the best of the ruins and learn all the amaz­ing details. After all, this is the largest arche­o­log­i­cal site in Europe! Par­take in the after­noon mini-workshops or enjoy the fresh breezes of Mykonos from your room’s pri­vate ocean view bal­cony! Scrap with your new friends in the open crop, or com­plete a man­u­fac­turer spon­sored make-n-take after the cock­tail hour and buf­fet in the evening.

Fri­day, Sept 24 – After break­fast you’ll have three one hour long follow-up classes with each of the instruc­tors. This is your oppor­tu­nity to ask any ques­tions you have about class projects, your pho­tog­ra­phy from Delos, or any other ques­tions you might have for Ali, Jenni or Karen. After lunch, enjoy mini-workshop with instruc­tion from the Daisy Divas or a last walk through the charm­ing town or one of the spec­tac­u­lar beaches. Your final evening will include a spe­cial cock­tail recep­tion and buf­fet, a chance to show off those newly acquired Greek dance steps with a live Greek band, lots of great give­away and some other very spe­cial sur­prises from the instruc­tors and your host Cocoa Daisy Destinations.

Sat­ur­day, Sept 25 – Con­ti­nen­tal break­fast and check out. Be sure to take one more round of pic­tures with all your new friends and exchange addresses as you’ll want to keep in touch!

And you have got to check out the venu here. The Kouros Hotel & Suites over­look the sea just a short walk from the Mykonos city cen­ter. The set­ting assures guests of spec­tac­u­lar views, amaz­ing sun­sets, deli­ciously breezes and azure skies.

As you can imag­ine I am pinch­ing myself daily to make sure this is not a dream. Greece best watch out because this non-world trav­eler is leav­ing the coun­try headed their way with a group of super fun peo­ple. It is guar­an­teed lots of crazi­ness is going to hap­pen there in Sep­tem­ber. If you can attend this event I cer­tainly hope you do. It is going to be such a mem­o­rable week.
