Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L has always been very active with fundraising for a number of wonderful causes. Breast Cancer Awareness and the now Make a Wish. This "Gala Event" hosted By Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L at the Hilton in Anaheim was another huge success.
I have been lucky enough to have been sponsored by Scrapbook Adhesives for a number of classes and projects over the last couple of years. I was honored to be invited to attend this event , and to see the unveiling of the worlds largest Scrapbook!
Below is a photo of Kerri Kuzel (Marketing Coordinator for 3L Corp) and I at their booth at CHA the day after the event. She is so kind and just a pleasure to work with.
Sandy Genovese of DIY Scrapbooking was the guest speaker for the event.

The really exciting part of the evening was, when they announced the winner of the state with the most pages made for the scrapbook. A $10,000 check was given to the "Make a Wish Foundation" of NEBRASKA!!!! NEBRASKA, that's right , you heard me.... NEBRASKA!!!! Way to go , NEBRASKA SCRAPPERS!!!! I was SO PROUD!!!
Not only did Sandy Genovese speak at this event ,but two Make a wish kids, (the smaller boy,holding the check and the teenage girl) A very moving video of other kids, that had their wishes fulfilled through Make a Wish, was played on a big screen and was just so moving, it had us all in tears. It's so cool to see a company like Scrapbook Adhesives get involved in such a wonderful cause!
This is Sandy Redburn (owner of Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage), Wendy Toth (office Manager) and I, enjoying a glass of wine and the live band.
Cocktails, live music,a wonderful dinner, and inspirational speakers. It was a truly incredible evening!
