I have to admit it, days before the Scrapfest I was hoping time would slow down a bit! Don't get me wrong please, I mean I'm happy and in a way excited because it'll be my first Scrapfest wherein I'm part (real part) of the organizing committee. But oh boy it was more difficult than I ever imagined! If before I'd go to the Scrapfest because I want to learn, meet new and old scrappers alike, shop and simply enjoy the day, being part of Scrappin' Moms changed all that. Now, I think if everything will turn out the way we envisioned things to be. I think of ticket sales, I think of the Idol Contest, I think of everything and yes I even think of my attire hahaha!
Now, that Scrapfest 4 has finally ended, I can breathe and relax quite a bit (yup because Scrapfest in May will be next hehehe!). This event is the first venture of the new Scrappin' Moms. And yes, amidst the difficulties we encountered, it was a very memorable experience for me!
Ria and April already said their thank yous to all our sponsors, to those who helped us in the preparations and to the participants but the thank yous and the commendations have not been addressed to the people behind this fantastic event! So, please bear with me as I say my piece.
To our Scrappin' Dads, Jeff, Meng, Nelo, Buddy, Bryan, Patrick, Tom, and Mier! We know that we become a little busy at times but we are more than thankful for your unending love and support!
Allow me to mention these too; Jeff, thanks for all your help not just to me but to the whole group, I know that sometimes you feel I'm always busy with so many things but I'm grateful for your understanding, love and your mere presence in my life! Everything that you have done to let me know that you support me in my passion makes me appreciate you even more!
Meng, thank you for all your help ... we could not have been visible in the net if it weren't for your generosity. Thanks too for being our photographer during the Scrapfest!
To the Scrappin' Moms thanks again for making me part of this group! You have made me a better person and scrapper after this experience. I'm sorry for my shortcomings too! I look forward to our next events! Love you friends!
