......to a perfect day. The Two Scrapbook Friends team was at Scrapfest in Kitchener which is held at the Kitchener Auditorium. It was 2 fun filled days of lined up make 'n takes and a packed booth full of scrapbook friends.
Friday was VIP night! Over 550 people attended and I think all of them visited our booth. It was so nice to see so many familiar faces. Saturday was general admission and Scrapfest set a record, with over 2500 people in attendance. Our make n' take table was lined up 6 deep all day long. Regan and Deanna pumped through 50 people an hour, doing over 400 make 'n takes for the day. Shelby and my sister Tracy ran the cash register. The line up for purchases was wound all through the booth and then it wrapped around the outside as well. That went on for most of the day. We received so many wonderful comments from friends and strangers, complimenting us on our custom aprons and headbands, amazing layout displays, super cute canvas tote bags, cutting edge products and overall presentation.
The show ended at 5pm and we all began to tear down our booth. We loaded the last couple of items on the truck at about 6:50pm. The Kitchener Rangers were also at the auditorium on Saturday night. The parking lot was a sea of red, white and blue jerseys and all the parking spots were full. Hubby and I grabbed our tickets and ran to the next arena and take our seats to watch one of the most exciting games I have ever seen the Rangers play!
We defeated the London Knights and now we are in a series against the Windsor Spitfires. This is the team that won the Memorial Cup last year. Our first game against them was in Windsor on Thursday night and we won! This was game 2 and what a game it was. I was a little worried that I might fall asleep during the game, considering I had been on my feet for 3 solid days. The game was so exciting that I didn't even realize I was tired.
The Rangers defeated the Spitfires again! Game 3 is tonight in Windsor.......oh how I wish I could go. I will have to settle for watching it on TV. It was the perfect ending to a perfect weekend. We will do a complete recap of our Scrapfest experience on the Two Scrapbook Friends blog. Thanks again to everyone who helped work our booth and to all those that visited. We are truly blessed!
