I am counting down the days until Tampa Bays Scrapbook Treasure Hunt. The hunt has been finally scheduled for March 11th - 20th of 2011. This is the my third year participating, and I enjoy every part of this truly awesome scrapbook event. So do you want to know what it is, and how it works? Here are the logistics:
Treasure Hunt is a 10 day event that 9 area stores are involved in. You pay 10 dollars for your passport and a bag full of scrapbooking loot. Then during the week of the Hunt you have to visit all 9 stores and spend $5 at each store to get your passport stamped. You get 10% off at all stores during the scheduled dates.
Each store has a custom tag that goes on your pirate beads that you will receive in your loot bag. Also you get a free 6x6 Make-N-Take for your provided album that you get in your loot bag. Each store decorates in a Pirate theme and dresses up. They also rent a Bus if you want to hit all the stores in one weekend. (At an extra cost)
Once your passport has all 9 stamps, you turn it in to your home store and you are eligible to win the following: 1st place - $900 in Gift Certificates, 2nd place - $450 in Gift Certificates, 3rd Place - $225 in Gift Certificates. Also there is usually a Cricut, Sizzix, or some other machine you can win. And then there is a Cover Contest for the best cover made of the album that you receive. You have 1 week after the Hunt is over to turn in your picture of your album cover.The site has not been confirmed yet!
So the I listed the stores and links so you can find that perfect home store if you have not found one and then find yourself a buddy, and start scrapping! One main rule that is not above is "One passport per person," it makes it fair for everyone, but I can personally shop for anyone who is not able to participate. If you are looking for certain items and or just want to have a blind box of goodies from 9 different stores in Florida; we can work that out. I heard about this type of shopping experience and thought I would put that out there for those who cannot join the adventure but want too! Just email me and we can work all the details out.
