Our next stop on the Scrapfest tour is the Cosmo Cricket booth. Does Cosmo Cricket remind you of anything? Don't you feel like you have seen it somewhere before? Well if you said yes then you probably know that Cosmo Cricket is the creation of married designers Eric and Julie Comstock. You might have heard of Comstock before. Eric and Julie are the original creators of the Comstock Collection. The Comstock Collection is still being featured by We R Memory Keepers at scrapbook stores all over the country. They have recently decided to go on their own and Cosmo Cricket was born. Same look . . . but a different name . . . and their very own company. Cosmo Cricket you ask . . . how did they come up with that name? Cosmo Cricket is an anagram of Eric Comstock. He typed his name in wordsmith.org and that's what came out.
Our next stop on the Scrapfest '07 tour is the Westrim/Autumn Leaves booth where we met the sweetest woman, Illiana. It was nearing the end of the day and the lines were still very long at each booth. Paris and I started talking to Illiana about the cute little Rhonna Farrer butterfly stamp they were featuring and that I was going to go up to Archivers after the event was over and try to find it. Illiana informed me that Archivers had already sold out of it but if I came back to her booth in a few minutes she would give me that cute little butterfly stamp to take home with me. How sweet is that!!! So I went back and Illiana gave me the butterfly stamp and the word flourish stamp that she had used all weekend at her booth. She took great care in cleaning them up for me and was concerned that they were a little dirty still. I told her that they had received much love over the last few days and I was honored to be receiving them. Illiana was fabulous and I hope we see her again.
I hope everyone is enjoying their guided tour through Scrapfest '07. Our final stop on the tour today will be some of the display boards featuring some of the wonderful projects that were offered in the workshops. Enjoy!!!
