June 25 Scrap-a-Palooza
Now that National Scrapbooking Day is over, it's time to turn our attention to our next big event, the June 25 Scrap-a-Palooza. This super-popular 13-hour mega-crop for 300 is the hottest summer ticket around, and we plan to make this one the best ever in give-aways, activities, and fun.

I checked in with Chris Louzader from Midwest Family Broadcasting, our Palooza partner, and we are already over one-third full, which is awesome, since neither one of us has been promoting the event yet. That changes starting this week. MFB will start advertising Palooza on several of its stations, including Star 92.9. And SG is officially promoting as of today.

We know what we have several scrapbookers driving in and flying in from other states to attend Scrap-a-Palooza, based on what we're hearing on the Two Peas in a Bucket message board. We're in the process of planning a Friday evening reception for them, along with any area "Peas" who want to drop in and join the fun.

Anyway, I wanted to give our local Palooza faithfuls a heads-up, because once both SG and MFB start promoting the event, registration numbers tend to jump up quickly, and we are usually sold-out a few weeks before Palooza takes place. Don't wait too late to register, because we want you there to join in the most incredible scrapbooking event in the country!

Please remember that SG does not collect your registration fee. That money goes to Midwest Family Broadcast Group. Click here for a registration link, and there's also a link on the right sidebar that shows previous photos and may answer some of your questions.
