Women's Retreat 2015 Layout

Since I haven't scrapped much this month, I decided to make up for it by scrapping a layout that has everything but the kitchen sink on it! I wanted to play along with a challenge on that required a single picture and tons of other stuff, so I pulled out a photo of me with a bunch of ladies on a women's retreat and used that to help me get started.
