{this should have been posted more than a week ago.  but certain things at work required my immediate attention.}

——–

05.17.08 —– woke up at 530am. picked up romel at 710am. picked up teena at 730am. and we were off to attend our first {ever} Scrapfest. 🙂

reached max’s a little past 9am but there were more than two dozen people already there. wow. tired from the drive but seeing all the other girls made it all worth it.

 

now let me show you what it looked like before the “herd” came in…

…and the “after” shot???

 

 

first order of the day was SHOPPING. oh, man. ibang level talaga kung mag-shop ang mga scrapper. nothing like the sound of a discount and the smell of yummy papers to make everyone crazy. syempre hindi kami nagpahuli at nagpatalo… hehehehe… immediately went to mitch (visual creations). got crackle paint, diamond glaze and tons of alphas (thickers and heidi swapp cb).  then headed over to MLA/SH to get my orders from Marisa.  next stop was at Jane’s Rekindled Moments where i picked up my pre-orders including my very own crop-a-dile (yahoo). got some thickers (again). then on to bookoto to get the CK book i ordered along with several free magazines (including the MMM with Iris on the cover). also dropped by Vivian’s booth – got more thickers, Prima papers and Maya Road sheers.

 

while almost everyone was hoarding…este…shopping like crazy, Iris made a demo (was able to capture some pictures but never really got to listen in on her…sorry Iris…binalak ko talaga pero the scrap stuff were calling out to my wallet…este…me)

 

when Liza got everyone to settle down, we began with the Mini Book Demo/Challenge.  learned wonderful stamp techniques (creating a pattern, masking, spotlighting, kissing) and got to try out Absolument stamps.  here’s my {unfinished} minibook —

 

we won several raffle prizes throughout the day.  got my wish when i won this from Bookoto:

 

teena and rome also got raffle prizes —-

 

the last activity for the day was the on-the-spot LO challenge.  we were divided into two categories- newbies and advanced. and since i won one scrapbytes challenge, i was lumped in the advanced category with veteran scrappers like Mia Cañiza, Issa Lucido (and the rest of the LB Scrapaholics), Bjay, etc. dear Lord!!! ngatog talaga tuhod ko. felt sooooo feverish during the ONE hour we were given to finish our LO

 

for this challenge, we were required to use at least one photo printed using a Canon Selphy printer.

three of these babies were up for grabs (for the raffle, newbie category and advanced category).

 

to my utter surprise and delight, my LO bagged third place!!!  won a stamp set from Absolument and a DCWV stack of papers.

 

we were tired and pooped…

 

but it was ALL worth it. being with friends. meeting new ones. seeing all the friendly faces. learning new things. but best of all… being with people who share your love for scrapbooking… now that’s priceless.

 

and now to show you my loot… hihihihihi… {pag di ba naman hoarding ito, ewan ko na lang}

 

may bonus pa!!!! the Scrappin’Moms also chose the LO i posted at the NING site for the NSD challenge. got these (c/o Mitch of Visual Creations) —

 

 

DEFINITELY looking forward to the next Scrapfest.  🙂
