Creative University 2012 & Blog Candy

Howdy Candies!  I'm so excited about upcoming Creative University 2012 that I'm sharing, sharing, sharing.  Every year I plan a trip to Camp Lutherhaven nested on beautiful lake Coeur d'Alene for an inspiring weekend of Inspiration, Relaxation and Education.  This annual retreat is hosted by Fabulously Artsy .  It is more than just a retreat of learning and sharing with others...well let my photos of the past in reminisceing bring you an understanding of what Creative University is like for me!  These are some photos from 2010, and StudioJ lay-outs created from CU 2011: 
This was 2011 Logo - Each year our Fabulously Artsy Host changes up our Logo & Logo wear to make it a special experience for those attending.  I love her ability to change up colors and themes as each time I go it just gets better and better!
Breathtaking Views.  I took this Shot CU 2010 and it's been the center-piece for some Idaho photo entries to demonstrate the gorgeous scenery that surrounds Coeur d'Alene. 
 Here is just a glimpse of the many blessings CU 2011 brought me.  From the welcome gifts created by hand, the comfy cozy cabins, a breathtaking open aired eating area were we enjoy meals together, a photo booth, the charm swaps (optional handmade treasures), and all the things I learned and gained from Creative University.  (Can You tell I love our Logo Wear!  Designed and created by Fabulously Artsy great treasures and a staple in my closet through-out the year).
Home Cooked Meals Daily!  This is just a glimpse of where we eat and the Food-Topia of wonder we get to enjoy.  One of my favorites is the fresh-baked cinnamon rolls, can we say YUMMY!
Cherished moments with incredibly inspiring and talented ladies!
CU 2011 Treasures...This is just a fraction of what I came away with at this incredible retreat.
There is so much more to share; however, I encourage you to hop over to Fabulously Artsy to learn more about her Incredible annual Creative University Retreat!  Over there you will find more details about 2012 & can click on her link to the Creative University web-site. I hope you enjoyed taking a gander at why this is a must attend event for me personally. 
Blog Candy
I'm excited about this announcement and have one of my own to share with you today.  If your a first time visitor or a follower of mine you may or may not be aware that my crafting is limited as of late so I've been cleaning and rearranging my Studio for some time now and spending the later updating and arranging this web-site along with some graphics creations and helping out my fellow CTMH Sisters on a couple projects of their own.  
The photo is the actual picture of the give-away that I'm providing.  It is a prior CTMH exclusive "Serendipity" Heart of Winter project.  This package has 1 My Acrylix stamp set, die-cuts, matching paper, cardstock, & a flip album with a 3-tiered chipboard heart dimensional element inside.   
How to Qualify for the give-away: 
1.  Share one of your Favorite Inspirational Art creations with Creatique Candy via Mr. Linky (choose the thumbnail of the image you want to share, must be the exact post url and not a general URL)
