If you haven't heard about the Halloween MegaScrap, it's a one day Scrapbooking & Photography Event for papercrafters and scrapbookers, beginners or advanced. Throughout the day you'll get to shop, win prizes, make new friends and take four classes hosted by two of the leading names in crafting, Donna Downey and Anita Mundt. Plus, you'll be supplied with kits worth over €75.00 and packed with goodies from Maya Road, Making Memories, Prima Marketing, Jenni Bowlin and Bazzill and more.

The MegaScrap takes place in the beautiful 4 Star CityNorth Hotel, off the M1 Dublin/Belfast Motorway, County Meath. Too far? Well, why not treat yourself to a night (or two!) away in one of their gorgeous rooms:
