A Scrapbooking Carnival

Hi there!

I'm pretty excited today! I just found out that there is a Scrapbook Carnival in B.C. this weekend and again in April!! I was so happy for all of you that were able to attend CHA in California, but at the same time I was sooooo wishing there was something like that available in Canada. 

Well...it's not CHA, but it's the next best thing. I thought it only right to advertise it through this blog for anyone in B.C. who may stumble across it. It will be nowhere near as large as CHA, but they will be featuring some new product lines and such. For someone who lives in an area that does not even have a scrapbook store within an hours drive, this is pretty exciting!!

Brought to you by Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine, it's--- (drum roll please) ...

The Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival

I get to go! WOOHOO!

Here's some details:

  • Scrapbook Marketplace
  • Make & Take Loonie Bar
  • Scrapbooking & Card Classes (6 offered in Victoria over the weekend)
  • Prizes & Draws

  • CRUISE GIVEAWAY at the Victoria show,
    sponsored by Creative Memories Consultant Shelley Wright. 
*Class registration does not include admission to show. Show Admission:
$10 for a day/weekend

 For more information on either show, go to www.canadianscrapbooker.ca

Thanks for visiting!


  1. Hi Carmen, if they have any contests you should enter them! I received the card in the mail and it is incredible. I am holding on to it until Father's day to give to my dad who is always doing something construction wise.


Thanks for the comments!
