As I posted a few weeks ago I am not able to attend Markie's Mom's retreat in Jacksonville FL the last weekend of October (Halloween weekend)?

I don't want any money - I just want someone to go and enjoy the retreat. I paid for it and cannot go. I paid early to get the discounted price of $225.00 vs. the $300.00 that Faith is now charging. The last weekend of October is the weekend before my breast cancer walk in Dallas and I have some work commitments that are preventing me from fitting it all in. Faith offered me a $75.00 refund of the $225 I paid or I can find someone to take my place. I'd much rather find someone that would like to go in my spot rather than get a partial refund.

Here's the link - http://stampinwithmarkiesmom.blogspot.com/search/label/October%202009%20Stampin%27%20Retreat (http://stampinwithmarkiesmom.blogspot.com/search/label/October%202009%20Stampin%27%20Retreat)

Please PM me if you are interested in going. I'm at the lake so I won't be online much between now and Sunday night but I will give the first person to PM me my spot - no charge and no strings attached. The only thing I ask that in some small way you pay it forward and do some form of a RAK (doesn't have to be stamping related - just an act of kindness) for someone else.

Teresa..I hope you get someone to take it. I had the pleasure of Faith teaching me three cards at the Flourishes weekend this past winter. She is fun to be around and has loads of energy. Even though I live here in FL, I can't do this. I am going away the weekend prior to Georgia to babysit for my sister and I can't be gone two weekends in a row.

Ladies...if you are interested, go to Splitcoast and check out her gallery!

Thanks ladies. I sure hope someone can go. If you live near an airport that Southwest flies in and out of I know the airfare to Jacksonville is pretty reasonable.

75 dollars, doesnt she realize that with all of us here, she could easily make up all the money by returning yours. People in business today just dont use their heads. Could you get in touch with Erin since she lives in Jacksonville. - Nancy

Teresa - does Erin have a friend that would want to attend with her? (I thought you had said that she was going)

I'd pay you to be able to attend but there is no flight back for me on Sunday (to Dulles) and I have to be back to work on Monday.

Hope you get a taker!

I went to Faiths very first retreat and it was tons of fun and I would love to go again. I wish I could take you up on your very generous offer however since it is halloween weekend I am unable to go. I have 2 small boys and I really look forward to the trick or treating fun and could never miss that.

I really hope you can find someone to take your place, good luck. I wish she wasn't doing it on that weekend since people with small children might would not get to attend just for my same reason. :)

I am thrilled that Roniece can go in my place. I was a little bummed tonight so I googled stamping events in New England and there is an event in Manchester VT on September 11 and 12th. I live less than an hour from Manchester. I emailed the organizers and they have a spot open and I can commute and the cost is less than my plane ticket would have been to go to FL so I think this is working out for a reason.

I also think (if my memory is working tonight) that Lesa and maybe Joanie? are attending the VT event :)

Teresa I'm glad you get to go to an event anyhow.

I'm gonna miss you. I'll come home and tell you every detail. :)
