September 2010 retreat

In September I went to a retreat with a group of women from the Oklahoma City, OK area. The retreat was sponsored by Whole Lotta Scrap in Norman, OK and was held at the Tantanka Ranch near Stroud, OK. It is a 1,000 acre working ranch with a rustic resort that offers all the amenities of a big town hotel in the pristine country side of northeastern Oklahoma.

There were 39 excited women that carpooled to Tantanka to spent a restful weekend scrap booking, gabbing, eating, sleeping, and just overall having a good time and enjoying one another's company. At the lodge is where meals were served and comfortable sofas and chairs surrounded a fireplace and there was television if anyone cared to watch. There was a two bedroom guest house and 10 cabins that had various accommodations available.

Some cabins had queen size beds and others had bunk beds and slept 4 to a room. My room mate Sheila and I shared a cabin with two other women and had a good time sharing space. The bunk beds are situated either side of the door leading into the cabin. My bunk...

The barn where we cropped is normally used for large parties and weddings. We are the first scrap booking retreat that Tatanka has hosted.

The barn had lots of tables but we had to have 5 more tables brought in to handle the crowd we brought with us!

The on site store that Leslie brought with her!

Girls just want to have fun!! Deb Sparlin, Terri Smith, and I enjoying a after dinner drink! Let the creativity flow!!

Me and Sheila!

Leslie and Fred brought their four wheelers to get around on. Leslie, Kelly and I took a ride around the lake inspecting the property and enjoying the day!

The lake was fun and the draw of the tower was that Elvis supposedly had signed a board at the top! I just had to see and got about half way up when I turned around and came back down. TOO scary!!

A view from the tower as I came back down. We are dinner at the dock and had a fire to make smores after eating supper. Lots of fun!

I took loads of pictures any could share a bunch more but I think I am going to leave it here and say I hope you can come with us next time!
