Edition 02 2009

Welcome to the second 2009 edition of the Canadian Scrappers Blog Carnival! We only recieved three invitations to visit this week, so it's a short trip, but there are great visits. Let's get started!

Sylvia, from Scrapbooking Oasis in Ontario, wishes everyone a Happy New Year! as she tells about some new products, changes, and plans to attend two crops in Chatham, Ontario, in February.

A newcomer to the blog, Andrea, in Ontario, shows us some really cute cards she created using Laurie Furnell's newest digital graphics set "Warm Winter Wishes".

Chris, in Alberta, shows us a couple of cute Spinner Cards she recently made, and points to tutorials on how to make them.

That's the end of the visits this week. Thanks, Sylvia, Andrea, and Chris for inviting us to visit. Thanks to those of you that came along for the trip.

I wish this had been a fuller trip but that is only possible if people submit invitations to visit. I love it when we have full trips with stops in all the provinces, but I have had to accept the fact that I just don't have the time to search out the posts to make it possible, so it's important to get the word out that people need to submit. I'd love to have people submitting invitations every week.

To try to encourage more participation, I have decided to offer up a small participation prize each month. Every time someone submits an invitation to visit their name will be put in to be drawn for a prize. At the end of the month I will send a small envelope of a prize to the person drawn.

The next edition will be posted Monday, January 19, but the deadline for submissions is Saturday, January 17th. Please help spread the word and hopefully I will be overrun with submissions. :)
