Scrapbook Expo Fundraiser 2014

Working in the craft and hobby industry, I get to meet some amazing people and work with some fabulous companies and products. One of my favorite events to do is the Scrapbook Expo. For the last 10 years I have run a fund-raiser booth for Operation Christmas Child at the St. Charles Expo and this year was no exception.

This year we had over 40 gift baskets to raffle off from some amazing sponsors including: Chicagoland Scrapbooker Magazine, Craftwell, Creative Options Crafts, Forget-Me-Not Memories,  Laura Cox-Scrap Addict for Life, Mandie Wade-Independent Thirty-one gifts  consultant, Mudd Puddles, Peddler's Den,  Scrap-It-Gal, Shoebox 1k, Xyron,

Selling tickets $1 each or buy $10 get two free helped us raise over $2100! That money will be used to help us fill shoebox gifts that will be sent to children in need all over the world! All this is possible because of generous donors and sponsors and an amazing team of volunteers! Together we will make a difference in the lives of children this holiday season! Thank-you to everyone for your support, when we all work together we can do a whole lot of AWESOME!!!

Enjoy some snapshots from our weekend!
