10th edition!

Welcome to the 10th edition of the Canadian Scrapbookers Blog Carnival!

Unfortunately we didn't get any invitations from British Columbia this time around so we'll start this trip in the next province.

Our first stop is in Alberta, where Ali has invited use to drop in to Scrapbooker's Club House for a visit. Just yesterday they had a questions and answer chat with Canadian scrapbook artist and teacher, Carolyn Peeler and Ali points out that "The Q&A Chat format at SBCH allows the interview to remain conveniently in place on our Forum for you to read, enjoy and refer back to at your convenience." So be sure to check it out.

Next we travel to Saskatchewan where we have two invitations to visit.

This is a our first visit with Jodi Lynn and she shows us a beautiful altered journal she made for a teacher's gift as she reminds us Summer's upon us. In her invitation to visit she said "My son and daughter had the most amazing teachers this year. I know that they work extra hard and I have no idea how they can accomplish so much through out the year. I made each of them a journal to show my appreciation for their hard work."

Next we'll drop in with Sheryl as explains a neat technique she used on the journaling note of the layout she completed for a Round 4 Challenge in a game/contest she's participating in.

Moving into Manitoba Denise has invited us to check out the new challenge blog, Scrapping out loud! that she, and her friends Jessica and Melissa, just started. Challenges will be posted every Tuesday, with the first challenge being posted July 1st. Every one that completes a challenge and leaves a comment with a link to their creation will have a chance to win a monthly prize/RAK.

Moving into Ontario, we'll take advantage of an invitation from Sylvia and make a first time stop in at Scrapbooking Oasis. Sylvia tells us about their two blogs, one which updates on new products and sales, while the second one is their designer blog. They offer freelance for those interested in designing. Check out the details on their blog.

No invitations to visit in Quebec, New Brunswick or Prince Edward Island this time around so we'll quickly skip over thse provinces.

In Nova Scotia we'll stop in for a first time visit with Lisa. She tell us she used a 2 Sketches 4 You sketch to create a really neat graduation card in 2S4U.

Our last stop is in Newfoundland to visit with Deanne as she exclaims, "Oh my, I've gone over the 20, 000 mark!!! RAK!!!" and shares some of her recent creations. For a chance at her celebrations RAK all you have to do is find inspiration on her blog and leave a comment with a link to your creation before June 30th.

And that's the end of this week's trip across our country as we visited with scrappers along the way. Thank you to each of you for the invitations to visit. I hope you will invite us again. Thanks also to each of you that came along for the trip. Make sure you take a moment to let our hosts know that you appreciated the invitation to visit with them by leaving a comment on their blogs.

Please continue to help spread the word about the carnival. Add a carnival widget or blinkie to your blog. Post about the carnival in your scrapbooking forums and email groups. Tell all your friends, especially your friends that are in Quebec or Prince Edward Island, as we've yet to visit in either of those provinces.

If all goes well, I will be posting the call for the next edition tomorrow so be sure to check back, and get your submissions in as soon as you can so that you don't forget! :) I really appreciate getting submissions early because it gives me more time to prepare the edition.

Happy scrappin' everyone!
