Scrapbook Royalty will be at Desert Scrappers Retreats this weekend!

Scrapbook Royalty is collecting canned food at Desert Scrappers Retreats!!!

Jennifer Priest will be at Desert Scrappers Retreats selling tote hooks and aprons, teaching classes and make n takes, selling raffle tickets and collecting food for charity.

Right now Scrapbook Royalty has partnered with Fiskateers to collect canned food for the homeless and those in need. We always do a raffle to benefit charity at Laura's retreats (thanks Laura!) so this time I am offering one raffle ticket for every 3 cans or boxes of nonperishable food you bring to me at the retreat to donate. If you bring 10 cans, you'll receive a goodie bag! For example, bring 20 cans of food and get 6 raffle tickets and two goodie bags.

We'll also be selling raffle tickets in the traditional sense: $2 per ticket or 20 tickets for $20. The proceeds from the two raffles I am doing will be split equally between Scrapbook Royalty and the American Diabetes Association. Diabetes is a disease that has affected nearly every member of my family. Scrapbook Royalty has yet to help a charity regarding this disease so this is our opportunity to make a difference for yet another worthy cause.

Here's a checklist for the retreat:

  • Bring Canned Food. Get a raffle ticket for every 3 cans, goodie bag for every 10 cans.
  • Bring $ for Raffle Tickets. $2 per ticket or 20 tickets for $20.
  • Shop for Scrapbook Royalty loot: and help support our charity. I'll have tote hooks and aprons at the Hydrangea Hippo booth.
  • Shop at Hydrangea Hippo. Kits are Buy Two Get One free, lots of ribbon, stick pins, banner kits, grab bags, and more.
  • Sign Up for Classes. Check out this post for the Paypal buttons and class pics and descriptions. Get a goodie bag for signing up by May 28 and paying online through Paypal.
  • Have fun!

They're Grrrrrreat!!

I remember as a kid I loved Frosted Flakes. It was always a race to see if I could eat my whole bowl fast enough to not let the flakes get mushy!

Now, you know we love to tell you about what grrrrreat things are going on in the world of giving. Part of our mission is to create opportunities for crafters to give...

Kellogg's Frosted Flakes has a program called the Earn Your Stripes (EYS) field renovation program thats aimed to renovate neighborhood sports fields across the U.S. Thousands of fields have been nominated some with as many as 700,000 supporters! Those fields have now been narrowed down to 100 finalists and your vote will help determine the winning fields.The semifinalist fields were chosen based on the feasibility of the field makeover, the location and age of the field, how often it gets used, how many events take place, what teams use it, the number of other athletic fields in the community, the demand, condition, and the impact a field renovation would have on the community.

So... if you could please visit the Frosted Flakes website and vote for your favorite "field story" you would be helping a communities dreams come true!

Do you know CPR?

We are not just about raising money we are also about raising awareness so here is some awareness comin' your way!

Scrapbook Royalty recieved an American Heart Association CPR anytime kit courtesy of Mom Central . This kit is amazing and comes with:

  • A personal, inflatable CPR manikin
  • CPR Skills Practice DVD
  • An American Heart Association Heartsaver AED Student Workbook
  • Heartsaver AED Anywhere software
  • Pocket mask and non-latex gloves

    It is seriously like having a CPR class in your own home! Super easy to follow along and really really important!

    Did you know....
  • Almost 80 percent of out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur at home and are witnessed by a family member
  • Only 6.4 percent of sudden cardiac arrest victims survive because the vast majority of those witnessing the arrest are people who do not know how to perform CPR

This is important! Take a moment to visit the website and educate yourself. You could save a life!

A much needed donation...

Miss Vicky of Cut-It-Up has generously donated 5 industrial shelving units, 6 pink grid walls, and a ton of collage page kits. She has been an incredible supporter of SBR and donated tons and tons of stuff to our cause. We can't thank you enough!

Vicky hosts retreats in her little town of Dutch Flat, CA. Its a historic mining town that will melt your heart. To see some photos of Miss Vicky's Place, visit our Founder, Elena's Blog, She just drove down with Miss Vicky to transport the above mentioned shelving. Not only did Vicky donate it, she also drove it down! What a huge heart!
