I just got home from a super fun scrapbooking event. I am not sure what the event title was. I thought it was Scrap Buffet, but there was also a banner that says Scrap Your Stress Away. Hmmm…both are fitting titles actually. The first 30 participants got a 15 minute complimentary chair massage that lifted the burden of a hectic week’s stress. Heavenly!

Now on to the buffet. There was a buffet table, but instead of food, scrapbooking supplies were served in little bowls and plates. The papers were hung on a rack. All we had to do was go around and fill our trays with the goodies. Just like in most buffet restaurants, the rule was “no take home and no leftovers”.
In order to prevent a stampede and scrap-crazy women from killing each other over paper, there was a policy of 10 embellishments, 3 patterned papers and 2 cardstocks per serving. After selecting the contents of our tray, we then proceeded to creating layouts, or cards using the materials. Then, once we’ve used up the supplies, we can go back for another serving.

I finished a record-breaking 5 layouts and 2 cards. I only mde 3 trips to the buffet table, and in the end had to return one cardstock and one patterned paper.

It was fun but nerve-wracking, specially in the last hour. We still scrambled to finish more layouts and get more stash from the buffet table, ignoring the hunger pangs and the announcement that the lunch buffet and later on, the snacks, are available at the food buffet. 10 minutes befire the scrap buffet closed, I gave up and decided to appease my hungry tummy. I took a quick snack and went back to finish my 5th layout.

Will take photos tomorrow and share my layout soon.

Thanks to Studio Azul who organized the event with the support of the PinoyScrapbookers mods and Visual Creations.
