26th Edition

Welcome to the 26th edition of the Canadian Scrappers Blog Carnival! Once again it's been a crazy week with no time to drum up extra visits, but thankfully we had a number of submissions this week so we still have a pretty full trip. Let's get started!

We'll start this trip at my place in Newfoundland and Labrador where I'll show you More Origami Christmas Tree Cards.

Next we're off to Nova Scotia to visit with Ali as she shows us 4 New Creations she's posted on her blog.

Moving over into New Brunswick we've been invited to revisit Noella's Creatively Yours blog for a second look at the Designer Contest. Ali says, "Ever think about revealing your talent thru the traffic on a busy blog? Well, think about it... this is a reminder that "Creatively Yours" has a neat 2-step Guest Designer contest going on! There is still time to enter to be the next guest designer at CY... and even better, they're looking for TWO! This is your chance to show your talent via all the all traffic this fun sketch blog receives!!"

Next we have a stop in at Quebec to visit with Sylvie as she shows us a beautiful Mini-album she made for her parents.

After that we'll travel to Ontario where our first stop will be to visit with Sue at JustCre8 where Sue excitedly tells us about great things happening there. She tells us to be sure to check out their blog and learn about their 2nd annual Revive & Rejuven8 2008 Fall Crop, happening this weekend, October 17th, 18th, and 19th. Be sure to take the time to check it out because you won't want to miss the chance to be a lucky winner of a Making Memories Slice Design Cutter! You can find out more about the crop here on their message board. Also, make sure you check out all the details on the Gr8 Cre8ive Idol Contest that starts October 18th. This is a no elimination contest with a points system. Prizes include $100 in scrapbooking supplies, plus more. You can find details and rules at the special Gr8 Cre8ive Idol Contest board in their forum.

Our next stop, also in Ontario, is to visit with Sylvia as she tells us about the St. Thomas Community Christian School - Fall Fair (and Scrapbooking Fundraiser) scheduled for November 8. Sylvia says, "The Fall Fair was an addition to the crop to bring more family fun to the event. The Fall Fair is running from 9am – 1pm. Featuring bake sale, lunch room, kid’s games and more! There will be fun for everyone at the Fall Fair." Tickets can be purchased in advance at Cut N Paste.

Our last stop in Ontario is with Tara as she asks, "Wanna Win Some Prima Stamps??". She's offering up some great blog candy in this post, and the one before it so be sure to check them out.

Next we're off to Alberta where our first stop will be at Scrapbooker's Club House. They recently featured the inspiring "green" talent of Lee Brehon on their blog in the 19th edition of their Scrappin' Green feature. In this edition Lee shares how to make templates from ice cream tub lids!!

Before we leave Alberta we'll drop in to visit with Chris as she shows us a gorgeous 3x3 note card box and cards she made recently.

After that we're off to British Columbia to visit with Lois as she tells us she had A Busy Time lately creating mini books for the upcoming BC Creative Expo in Vancouver scheduled for November 7&8.

That brings us to the end of this trip across Canada visiting with Scrappers along the way. Thank you to those of you that invited us to visit and thanks to those that came along for the ride.

If all goes well the next edition of the carnival will be posted next Thursday, October 23rd. Please send in your submissions as soon as possible before then.

I didn't get any response from the Blog Awards idea that I posted last week. I'd love to hear your thoughts about it. I will only go ahead with the idea if there is interest in it.

Hope everyone has a great scrappy week and makes lots of creations to share with us in the next edition of the Canadian Scrappers Blog Carnival!
