2nd Edition of The Canadian Scrapbookers Blog Carnival!

Welcome to the 2nd edition of the Canadian Scrappers Blog Carnival. In this special edition we will be checking in with some scrappers across our country to see how they will be spending National Scrapping Day. Unfortunately we don't have a lot of places to visit this time around. Maybe everyone was too busy getting ready to celebrate so they didn't have time to blog. :)

We'll start this trip by visiting with Connie in Saskatchewan. This is the first time she's invited us for a visit. Though she's not actually going to be scrapping she is planning on spending the day taking pictures of her husband working the land so that she can scrap them later.

This is also our first invitation to visit with Vanessa in Manitoba. She's planning on getting together with friends and she's also helping run on online crop on a Canadian Forum. Check it out!

In Ontario, Jennifer is attending something called Destination Create with a bunch of her friends. I can't wait to hear all about it.

Carla, in Ontario, also invited us for a first time visit. She's helping run a week long NSD Celebration, that started April 30 and goes until May 6th, on an online Canadian Forum, with RAKs for every challenge! Sounds like fun!

In Newfoundland, Deanne, along with her sister and a friend, have planned on all-day scrapping party in a local church.

I'm also in Newfoundland (Jacqueline) and I was really hoping to get to go to Deanne's celebrations but instead I'm going to have to see what I can come up with on my own, and I'm dreaming of what I could do if I had a good laptop for checking out celebrations I've discovered in cyber land.

That's the end of our scrappy visits for this edition. I know a lot of other scrappers have plans to celebrate all across our nation. If any of you meant to send in a post and forgot, send it to me tomorrow and I will still add it at the end of this post.

The next edition of the Carnival will be posted on May 8th, with the deadline for submissions being May 7th. I sure hope that more of you will join us in the next edition to tell us about what you actually did for National Scrapbooking Day and also to share with us your creations from the day. Write a post on your blog all about it and then send a link to that post to so that scrappers from across the country can visit with you and see what you've been up to. Be sure to take a minute to check out the submissions guidelines in the side bar.

Thank-you to all of you that have been helping spread the word about the Carnival. Keep up the good work and don't forget to send in your submissions to the next edition.

Until then, Happy Scrapping! Hope you have a fun filled National Scrapbooking Day!
