Cocoa Daisy Destination ~ Mykonos

Sep 28, 2010

This past week was spent with a wonderful group of ladies (as well as a few husbands) from all over the world and a group of teachers (Ali Edwards, Jenni Bowlin and Karen Russell) who I have admired for a very long time. I still cannot believe I was lucky enough to be a part of it all.

Tricia and Elina did such a great job selecting the accommodations, the food for our breakfast and dinner each day, the cocktails each evening as well as having a cooking class and Greek dance lessons at the hotel. Each night was a special dinner out at a restaurant with either Ali Edwards or the Daisy Instructors, a lunch with Jenni Bowlin or a tour with Karen Russell. There was a tour provided to see the ancient ruins in DeLos and of course the many walks into town during the day and night, gelato was high on the list in the evenings. I loved that this group of women came together from all over world with one very common denominator … scrapbooking. It was fun seeing everyone take photos and collect little mementos to scrap with when preserving the memories from their trip. I certainly miss seeing all my new and old friends and hope to keep in touch with this group forever.

Here you will see Ali, Ronda, Christine, Tricia, Emily and Paolo packing kits and helping prepare all the goodies that were given out.

Lots of great products to give away from incredible sponsors…

Goody bags for everyone…

We had cocktails like this ever single night…

This was a group of ladies at the beginning of cocktail hour… so much fun to sit down and chat about all that they did  and saw during the day as well as what classes and projects they created.

Super fun cooking class. I cannot wait to try out some of the recipes Katarina shared with all of us… she is a fabulous cook.

Sitting down to chat and scrap in the lobby each day was fun… people were always coming in and out.

Elina gave everyone Greek dance lessons…

We had make n takes two nights during the week… Ronda, Christine, Gudron and I had loads of fun doing these… during the day Ronda and Christine taught their mini workshop… I took the late shift for mine… no surprise there I’m sure… I love being a night owl. Of course I did not take a photo of my classes… that makes me so moody with myself… I get so excited about teaching the project that I just flat out forget to take photos.

Friday night was a blast… dancing around the pool to this incredible Greek band, everyone won a give away, cocktails were served, dinner was awesome and then to top the night off… Ronda, Christine and Emily and I jumped into the pool with all our clothes on … it was a super fun night and one that I will reflect on for years to come. I am certain there is at least one or two photos of us soaking wet and when I get my hands on one I will share it. Until then you will just have to imagine the moment. So that is the recap of my incredible scrapping week. And if you stayed with me this long leave me a comment and you will have a chance to win one of the mini workshop kits I taught. I brought one home to give to one of my lucky blog readers. I will pick a winner Thursday evening. Good luck!
