MLAS has played a vital part in my digiscrapping life because that’s where I started. That’s where I explored the big world of digital scrapping and I know that you would understand my sadness when I received my last newsletter from MLAS announcing that the store is closing. Oh why but why? I do not know.
So as a tribute to MLAS, I am making this post to give my hats off to the owners at MLAS. Here are some of my fondest memories of the store.
1. I was able to meet designers who hired me to be in their CT. As a beginner, I felt so honored to be hired you know. It’s a lot different than applying though the perks are the same.
2. The people in MLAS had motivated me to do things that I was hesitant to do, like applying as a CT member of my favorite designers. “There’s nothing to lose” is what the girls always tell me.
3. There was one time when MLAS had to shut down because they are transferring to a better server and the transfer took longer than what we had expected. We all suffered from severe MLAS withdrawal. And lastly,
4. I purchased my first kit at MLAS, and it was just not a kit for my own consumption but the kit was for the benefit of a charity institution that the owners and designers are supporting.
And as the final curtain call for MLAS, here are two layouts I created in the challenges.
The first page was an entry to the font challenge and the second one was for the lyrics challenge that I was talking about. Anyway, as MLAS final call before their dramatic closing on Valentine's Day, they are having a SALE in all of the kits.
