9th Edition

Welcome to the 9th edition of the Canadian Scrapbookers Blog Carnival!

We're going to start this trip in British Columbia, where we have two invitations to visit.

First we'll drop in on Izzy as she shows us a neat slide show of lots of different Mini Albums she's made in the past.

After that we'll pop in to visit Lois as she asks us "Ever Wonder What to Do With... empty ribbon rolls" and shows us a neat mini album she made with one.

No invitations to visit in Alberta or Saskatchewan this time around so we'll skip right over them. Hopefully we'll get some inviations to visit next time so that we won't have so far to travel without stopping. :)

Next up we have two new invitations to visit in Manitoba.

As we visit with Allison, she invites us to check out two of her online businesses Eyelet Canada and Pizza Box Kits. She tells us that Eyelet Canada "started when I had to go to the US for every different brads and eyelet I wanted. I decided to start my own online business, and I now feature lots of fun stuff from many different manufacturers all over the world. My 16 year old daughter now fills the orders as a part time job. We offer free shipping and taxes included in our prices, which keeps people coming back." Later she started Pizza Box Kits "to take the brads and eyelets further- we add all kinds of little goodies to our kits to make them extra yummy. FREE shipping as well!" Sounds like they are worth checking out.

After that we'll drop in on Nicole as she says "Join Us!!" and tells us about an online crop that members of Love is in the Details have organized for June 20 & 21.

Next we're off to Ontario, where we also have two invitations to visit.

First we'll drop in on Jennifer as she says "Here is an oldie...and a RAK" and she shares a mini album card she made for her hubby last year. She can't remember the name of the paper line she used and is offering a RAK to the first person that identifies it.

Next up is our first time invitation to visit with Kristine as she invites us to "A Quick Share as I Prepare a Donation Basket". It's a neat idea!

Unfortunately there are still no invitatons to visit in Quebec. I know there are lots of scrappers in Quebec and I sure would love to have them join the carnival. Hopefully someday. :)

Our next stop is to visit with Noella in New Brunswick as she says thanks for visiting last time and shares Card Sketch #3 - AND CONTEST!!. Use her sketch and rules to design a card and post it before the June 27th deadline and you could win a prize.

No invitations to visit in Nova Scotia this time and still no invitations to visit in Prince Edward Island yet. Hopefully we'll have invitations from both places next time around.

Our last stop is with Deanne in Newfoundland as she shares her June 15th Sketches and DT creations. If you participate you will be eligible to win a RAK at the end of June.

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. It has been great having submissions come in quickly the last few editions. Keep it up! :)

Happy scrappin' everyone!
