47 Albums Made for Families, $3500 raised!

This past weekend we had two wonderful events at It's About Time in Murrieta, CA and Pink Pineapple in Vista, CA. We made 47 beautiful albums for families coping with cancer, and also raised $3500 for the Cancer Coping Center!! It was touching to see all the albums turn out so differently and have everyone put their own personality into them. We made some wonderful new friends and heard many emotional stories of personal cancer survivors. One such brave survivor was Randi who participated in the event at It's About Time. She and her sister Cristy raised almost $900 alone. Click here to read her touching email to us. Click here to read It's About Time's blog post about the event!

We have to thank these two wonderful stores for helping us put on these amazing events. We also have to thank Jennifer Priest for designing the beautiful album, and also Nan from Zutter Zisters for all her donations and being a trooper on both days. Thank you also to all our wonderful committee members who came out to help us. Thank you for making this another Scrapbook Royalty success!
Last but absolutely not least, a great big thank you goes out to Miki Nenn from Creating Keepsakes Japan for donating almost 95% of the supplies needed to make all those beautiful albums.
Thank you one and all!
