If you are a paper-craft enthusiast, and you’ve got drawers full of scrapbooking materials and scraps, then this event is for you. At the 17th annual Great Lakes Mega Meet, held May 5-7, 2016 at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, indulge in some of the best scrapbooking supplies out there and construct masterpieces with family and friends.
Throughout the few days of this event, scrapbookers will be able to attend classes and get tips from professional scrappers, as well as create make-and-take projects at vendor stations. Plus, this event is chock-full of awesome scrapbooking materials you can purchase, as well as use for the duration of the event.
Event-goers have the opportunity to win numerous prizes for their outstanding scrapbooking skills. Some of these prizes include the daily grand prize, which can be won simply just by filling out a form and awaiting the daily drawing. The next prize up for grabs is the door prize. Every person who registers is entered into the drawing. The last prize is the crop prize, which is for the best-themed table – so get the gang together and demonstrate your creative cropping skills to get your hands on this cool prize.
If you are the ultimate cropper, sign up for the All Day Cropping or the Friday Night Crop Party. At these two special events, you will have the opportunity to crop for hours and participate in contests and games, sponsored by the exhibitors. If you run out of any materials during your cropping extravaganza, a stocked up vendor will be steps away. Many vendors will have merchandise for sale at their own tables throughout the cropping room.
The Great Lakes Mega Meet is perfect for anyone 11 and up (all children must be accompanied by an adult). When bringing your children, ensure that you go over some safety guidelines prior to bringing your child to this event due to the dangerous materials in the cropping room.
