Scrapfest 2011

We are at the scrapfest this weekend up at Mall of America.

They have a lot of make and takes if you purchased a badge for $22.00. They also had classes for an extra charge per class.

A wonderful added bonus over and beyond the make and take, some are offering an email sign up sheet where you get a little extra something. Some items were paper or ribbon.

Here are some pictures of the booths and the wonderful creations offered.

If you are here, perhaps it gives you an idea of the booths you would like to visit. If you are not here, be sure to attend next year.


We made a tag using the irock, itop and Bon Voyage paper.

Here are the make and takes at a glance...

There are 31 booths. Some of them are doing 2 different items each day. I suppose in theory that you could keep going around to them all over again. Although some of them had a couple hour wait depending in the attendance or popularity of the booth.


There were a lot of classes and the boards display the projects. Below is an example.

They also had a class on le cirque.

I hope this gave you a bit of an overview.

They will be there tomorrow as well. If you're in the area, check out the mall of America. You never know who you might meet! Perhaps, even Tim Holtz.

Also, be sure to check out the challenge this week on and enter for a chance to win some prizes.
