Scrap-a-Palooza #7 rocked!
We had a sell-out crowd of 284 scrapbookers for our seventh Scrap-a-Palooza. The snowy weather treated us right, and everyone was able to enjoy a full day of scrapbooking and shopping delight.

One of the most interesting parts of the day...I had ordered over 20 of the new Sew Easy tools by We R Memory Keepers, thinking that would be enough to sell at Palooza and then have some to take back to SG and sell. The doors opened at 8:30, and the Sew Easy tools were sold out before 9 am! I'm ordering more today! I also want to give a shout-out to American Crafts for generously donating the cardstock for the free layout class that Allison taught. Awesome!

Check out scenes from this fun event below...

Heather Schroeder and Katrina Hunt teach one of the three free mini-classes designed, prepared, and taught by the Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker Design Team. Nikki also generously donated $15 worth of product for each person's goodie bag!

Allison Davis presents one of her three big-screen demonstrations during the day.

Allison's three paid classes were hugely popular. Two of them will be offered in February and March at Scrapbook Generation.

When I had a chance to sit down, I had some fun with scrapbooking friends Hazel Stuart, Debbie Seitzer, and Diana Boggs. Karon Rapp and her friend Karen were also part of our group.

Stacey and husband Jeremy were at the registers from 8:30 in the morning until 10 at night. They rarely sat down!

Scrap-a-Palooza is a hectic day for Karin...she also gets to run Scrapbook Generation herself that day while the rest of us are at Palooza.

The free mini-classes taught by Katrina and Heather were popular places to be!

Allison Davis, Karin Rush, Chris Louzader, myself, and Stacey Atchley, our Palooza team! Chris and Midwest Family Broadcast group do a super job of promoting the event, and of taking care of the set-up and food. We can't thank her enough!

And if you're ready for more Scrap-a-Palooza, the next one is June 25. Same place, same great time!
