An Affordable Alternative to CKU?

Simple Scrapbooks is teaming with a scrapbook retreat house outside of Denver to offer scrapbook retreats featuring a combination of Sweetwater House’s regular classes and Simple Scrapbooks personalities.

There will be five two-night retreats between July and October. A sixth date is to be determined due to a scheduling conflict for the personalities.

Sweetwater House is a recently renovated historic 1906 three story house. Sleeping arrangements are booked per bed in rooms that sleep between 2 and 6 people. Groups can book all the beds in a room that is available, or an individual can book a single available bed in the room of their choice.

A two-night package at Sweetwater House costs $299, including five meals, snacks and drinks. By comparison, tuition for CKU (which is a day longer) is $445 including only three lunches, and that doesn’t include your hotel room at what is usually a several hundred dollar anight convention hotel.

$250 for a two night scrapbooking retreat with classes in a beautiful old house sounds great…I wish I was closer to Denver!
