Retreat and Recharge

Today my team at work is heading to Atlanta for the week!  We’ll be joining 12,000 of other church leaders at Catalyst.  I’m super excited to see what God has in store for us.

And for some reason I thought I wouldn’t have enough to do before leaving.  So I made these treat bags for everyone!

I used the new “Vintage Labels” set again to make the sweet backgrounds and then found the perfect sentiments in “A Day at the Beach.”

I really love the new Spring Moss ink.  Covers great!

Of course a treat bag is not complete without the treats!  What did I make?  Well, they’re called Chocolate Hazelnut Crinkles.  When taste testing, I literally just stopped and thought, “This may be the best cookie the I have ever made.  This may even be the best cookie that I have ever eaten!”

Seriously, just try them.  (From “Betty Crocker’s Cookies and Bars” magazine at the grocery store.  Really, 90% of my best desserts have come from these magazines.)

Hope that you all have a great week and I *hope* to share some pics from my trip when I get home.
