Edition 01 2009

Welcome to the first 2009 edition of the Canadian Scrappers Blog Carnival! Sorry I am late in posting this. I'm still having computer troubles and had so many frustrations trying to get it ready to post yesterday that I finally gave up. Yesterday I also found out that, thanks to my mom and sister, a new laptop is on the way to me so I won't have to worry about those same troubles next week.

First off I want to give a big thank you to Kristine. Kristine emailed me last week and asked if she could decorate the blog and I gave her free reign. I absolutely love what she did! Thanks so much, Kristine.

Now, let's get busy and start our trip across Canada visiting scrappers along the way.

Deanne, in Newfoundland, invites us to check out the her DT Call for March-August(closes Feb 10th) on her sketch blog.

On her Christmas Cards All Year Round blog Deanne asks "Are you Ready??? January Card Challenge".

Ali, in Nova Scotia, shares with us her Glitter-y Trees (and a Holiday Shaker Box) all about the 2 trees she had in 2006, for Christmas.

Kristine, at Creative Scrappers in New Brunswick, tells us about their search for a February Guest Designer. Check out the requirements and enter for a chance before January 15th.

Kristine also invites us to check out her personal blog for information about a Scrappers Journal/Class she is offering online January 13th.

Ali tells us to be sure to check out "Happy New Year" post on the Creatively Yours blog from New Brunswick for a couple of great sketches to inspire you.

A new comer to the carnival, Amy, in Ontario, loves challenge blogs and she shares with us a "Happy New Year 2009" card she made inspired by a couple of challenges.

Jennifer, in Ontario, invites us to check out Week 1 365. She's taken on a 365 photo challenge this year.

Sue, in Ontario, invites us to check out the Fringed Paper Flowers tutorial by Jessi Lute featured on the Just Cre8 blog.

Denise, in Manitoba, invites us to check out the Scrapping Out Loud Challenge blog "A New Year, a New Look, and a New Team". Sure looks like they are gearing up for a great year!

Chris, in Alberta, shows us a beautiful Star Album she recently made for a friend.

Kali, in Alberta , shares that she Finally Finished a Christmas project on Christmas Eve. It is simply gorgeous!

Ali reminds us to be sure to check out the Scrappin’ Green~Tips for Eco-Friendly Memory Keeping: 21st Edition on the Scrapbooker's Club House blog from Alberta. It's a great scrappy-budget-savvy article submission from Michelle Vekved, an artist and Design Team Member in the SBCH Community.

Lois, in British Columbia, tells us "I've been busy" as she shows us a very thoughtful project she's created.

Melissa, in British Columbia, declares "A New Year, a New Layout" as she shows us a snowangel layout.

That's the end of our visits this trip. Thank you to all that sent in invitations to visit. I hope you will mention on your blog that you have been featured and that you will encourage others to submit in the future. I also hope to hear from you again. Thank you also to those of you that didn't submit but did come along for the trip. I hope you, also, share about the Canadian Scrappers Blog carnival on your blog, if you have one, and I hope that you submit soon.

The next edition will hopefully be posted on Monday, January 12. The deadline for submissions, however, is Saturday, January 10. I hope to hear from all of you.

Happy Scrapping!
