Scrapbook Royalty Committee Hits the Road!

Several weeks ago, almost all of the Scrapbook Royalty committee members, along with a few committee-members-to-be, went on a road trip to all the stores participanting in the Black White & Scrap event!

We had a wonderful time. Elena, Rachel, Lori, Birgitte, Debbie, Gloria, Julie, Liz, little ones Isabella, Emily and Lexi and myself all piled into two SUVs to make the trip! There were no wrong turns this time, but lots of chit chatter along the way, and of course, a couple of Starbucks stops! All of us dressed in, you guessed it, black & white! Except for me, I cheated a little, but I promise that my pants were almost black!

We followed almost the same route as last time. We started at It's About Time, then went to A Page In Time where we covered ourselves in glitter from the make n' take and also browsed through all the wonderful Petaloo selection, then headed to Auntie Amy's and admired all the wonderful things to make "altered art". We then went to The Loft, Scrapbooks & More, and finished off our trip at Now & Then. We were all very tired at the end of the day, but managed to keep the giggles going!

It's not too late to participate!! There are ten whole days left in June, which means ten days to make it to the stores. All stores are offering crop passes and also will give raffle tickets just for showing up! You have to be a registered participant, however... you can still sign up by clicking here!

If you've already gotten your make n' takes from all the stores, we'd love to see pictures of your book! In fact, each store will choose one book as their favorite! In order to participate, add ONE color to your book, decorate it as you wish, and send us pictures to We will announce the winner shortly after the end of Black White & Scrap.

We also would love to hear tales and see pictures from your Black White & Scrap adventures! Send them to us at

If you didn't receive your crop pass at a certain store, you can simply call that store to sign up for a crop and mention that you were part of Black White & Scrap.

Unfortunately Scrapbooks & More is now closed! If you did not get the chance to pick up your make n' take from Scrapbooks & More, The Loft will be holding them for you. If you have already gone to The Loft and will be unable to return to pick it up, please send us an email to let us know and we will have it sent to you.
