Okay first up....

National Scrapbooking Day is right around the corner...May 5th....

National Scrapbooking Day May 5th 10 am – 10 pm CSTDo you want a “GOLDEN TICKET”? No, you don’t have to buy a thousand candy bars even though that doesn’t sound like a bad idea! Virtual Tickets will be given during the day for the raffle drawings.“How do you get a ticket for the raffle?” you may ask. There are many ways to get tickets. For now, the first way to earn them is by making a purchase at our store. For every $2 you spend in the store from April 20th through May 5th (NSD) midnight CST – you will receive a “virtual ticket”.The remaining ways to get tickets will be posted closer to NSD. But do you want the coveted “GOLDEN TICKET”? The golden ticket will be awarded to the person with the most votes. The “Golden Ticket” gives the winner 15 virtual tickets for the grand prize raffle. What are the virtual tickets used for? It’s all about the raffle. The grand Prize. The Wonka Factory for scrapbookers! What is it? What are we raffling away? **A Chatterbox Brown Scrapbook Trunk Set**. *No longer available, this gorgeous trunk set is for all your scrapbooking needs!
