I'm excited that it's finally September and I can tell you a little more about Scrapbook Generation's plan for Scrap Pink, a Susan G. Komen breast cancer foundation benefit sponsored by Scrapbooks Etc. magazine. At last count, over 600 independent scrapbook stores across the nation were committed to participate in this program, which is in its second year! I'm hoping that between all of the activities we have planned, we'll be able to raise at least $1,000 for this worthy and important cause.
We have two full days of fun planned for Scrap Pink...
Friday, September 26 -- Scrap Pink Crop
Our regular Midnight Madness crop is going to be transformed into a Scrap Pink crop. Plans include pink decorations, pink snacks, Scrap Pink mugs, and pink prizes. Ten dollars of each person's fee goes to the Komen foundation. We're already full with a waiting list!
Saturday, September 27 -- Scrap Pink Silent Auction
Scrapbook Generation staff and teachers Debbie, Karin, Stacey, Allison, Marti, and Laura have each created and donated a pink layout, set of pink cards, or pink mini-album for a silent auction. Bidding starts Saturday morning at 10 and ends when we close at 6 pm. Several items for the auction are already completed, and they are so cute! Every penny raised will go to the Komen foundation.
Saturday, September 27 -- Scrap Pink Sketch Sessions
Our popular Saturday sketch sessions have been expanded, with Allison and I teaming up to each create a two-page pink layout for the event. Both double-page layouts can be created from one set of papers, which will cost less than $5 (and a portion of the paper price will be donated to the Susan G. Komen foundation)! As always, the computer sketches are free. In the five sessions, we have room for 100 people. The 10 am session is already full, and several others are nearing capacity. Please call as soon as possible to make your reservation. We have several surprises for those who attend, including pink favors for everyone and some pink prizes for some lucky ones!
Saturday, September 27 -- Scrap Pink Freebies
Everyone who spends at least $25 that day will receive a special edition Allison Davis pink page kit, a $12.99 value. Everyone who spends any amount at all can choose 10 pink buttons, our appreciation gift for you. (Both offers are for adults only, one per family, please.)
Saturday, September 27 -- Scrap Pink Fundraising
We plan to have about 10 additional pink page kits for sale, and $5 of the price will go to the Komen breast cancer foundation. I'm using just about every combination you can imagine -- pink and pink, pink and black, pink and brown, pink and green, pink and purple, pink and white, and more!
We're urging everyone to wear at least a little pink when they attend any of these activities, just for the fun of it. And please don't tell Karin that I found a couple of hot pink extension wig-type-things on clearance in the toy section at Wal-Mart the other day. I'll spring that on her at the last minute! She'll look great in it!
