Hi my Scrappy Friends!

I wanted to tell you all about the wonderful weekend events that Scrap-a-Doodle Doo holds once every @ 3-4 months.

The last event was the weekend of July 20 - 22nd, 2011.   It was attended by close to 50 scrappers, and was actually one of their smaller events.   ( The summer is usually harder for people to get away, what with vacations, trips with the family to the shore on the weekend, etc.) 
The next event is October19-21st, and is a DISNEY Theme - and is currently SOLD OUT!  (over 120 scrappers!!)  Upcoming 2013 Crop Dates and info can be found by CLICKING HERE -- register EARLY, as you don't want to miss out on these AMAZING weekends!!

Even when "THE DOO's" weekends get close to, or even over 100 people, you still feel like you are a special guest at all times.

Each weekend has a special THEME, and this last event was CHRISTMAS/HANUKKAH in JULY!  SUCH FUN!!

The TEAM at THE DOO go all out to try to carry the theme throughout events at the crop, like the goodie bag give-a-ways, games/contests (always optional participation) prizes (this crop's free raffle prizes were all wrapped up like presents!) food, and decoration. This makes them even more fun! ( PLEASE NOTE: regardless of the theme, each cropper works on whatever pages/projects/themes that they want to, and participation in themed games is always optional!)

There are usually "Photo Ops" :


The FOOD is always delicious, and there are always lots of choices
- this event had a Chef making custom omelets for breakfast!! 
Check out the mini bottle of Tabasco Sauce too!


There are WONDERFUL Desserts both from the Hotel .....

And from one VERY Talented Scrapper / Friend ( Pattie!!!)
who treats us with  AMAZING GOODIES!!

There are usually classes you can attend for a small additional fee too.  This is a mini Summer album class that I taught at the last event -

The ladies all seemed to have a great time - they all did a great job too!!

Here is a picture of the mini-album that everyone in the class made

 There are also vendors at each event.  In the past, Close to My Heart, Creative Memories, Mary Kay, Lia Sophia, and Tastefully Simple have been represented. 

OH - and let's not forget that Stephanie, Mark and the whole DOODLE DOO TEAM bring about half of the STORE with them - so don't worry if you forget something - they usually will have it with them, and if not - they make runs back to the store to restock all weekend!

If you've never been to a scrapbook weekend  - I highly recommend you give it a try.  We all need some time for ourselves, and spending time releasing our creative energy not only improves our minds and well being, it recharges our batteries, and gives us something to look forward too, during the doldrums of everyday life and tasks.  

If you've never been to a SCRAP-A-DOODLE DOO weekend - you don't know what you are missing!!! - Besides TOP NOTCH customer service, it is always a smoothly run and FRIENDLY event.  If you don't have anyone to go with - don't worry -  all of the attendees are so friendly and helpful. You will leave the weekend with a bunch of completed projects, and a whole bunch of new scrapping buddies!!

Hope to see you  at a DOO WEEKEND soon!
