Scrapbooking demo, contest to raise funds for AID

If you are passionate about scrapbooking you will want to submit a one-page entry into the Association for Individual Development (AID) scrapbooking contest.

Participants are encouraged to use whatever materials they want to create a scrapbooking masterpiece. There is a size limitation of 24 inches by 24 inches and each entry should fit into the contest's theme of fall/Halloween/Thanksgiving.

Judges for the inaugural event will be Nancy Noble, owner of the Cottage Stamper in St. Charles and Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrator Judi Anderson.

AID Special Events Coordinator Wendy Bialek is happy to have the judges on bard saying, “We are excited for the experience and expertise these judges will bring to our event.”

Information will be available at the event on classes, workshops, in-home parties and more offered through both Nancy and Judi. You may also stop by for a free make & take demo led by Judi Anderson. Receive tips and guidance as you construct a piece of scrap booking art to take home with you.

Not to be forgotten, the scrap booking contest will reward its first place finisher with $100 in cash. In addition to the grand prize of $100, the 2nd and 3rd place finishers will win scrapbooking gift baskets.

There is an entry fee of $10 per piece submitted. Pre-registration is required!

Pre-registration is required to participate in the scrapbooking contest. The deadline to register by is Monday, Sept. 12.

Best of all, proceeds will benefit the Association for Individual Development, a non-profit organization that provides programs and services for over 5,100 children and adults with disabilities, mental illness, and special needs.

The top three entries will be posted on the AID web page and – space permitting – all entries will be displayed at the Gail Borden Public Library in Elgin.
