I think it's safe to say that our first-ever Scrap-a-Palooza was a huge success! Sold-out with 200 scrapbookers, and filled with fun activities from beginning to end, this mega-crop at Remington's is the first of many to come!
Our collaboration with Midwest Family Broadcasting worked well, and Chris Louzader of MFB made a great emcee for the day's activities. With MFB providing food and set-up and lots of prizes, and Scrapbook Generation providing a store, paid classes, free classes, demos, and goodie bags, everything seemed to go smoothly. One of the nicest features was the huge screen for Allison's four demonstrations. Everyone was able to hear what she said, and see what she was doing, from the comfort of their seats!
I chose a few of the comments that people wrote to share with you here...
-- "Excellent food, and lots of food. Thank you for feeding us well. Store was amazing and contests fun."
