Canada's Scrapbooking Crop for Kids - October 12-14

I don't normally show my support for any one particular event or store, but I find myself making an exception for Canada's Scrapbooking Crop for Kids.

I recently attended a class taught by the organizer for Edmonton's event ... the class was great and made even better since a portion of the proceeds were donated to Canada's Scrapbooking Crop for Kids! More importantly though, I was able to hear about this fantastic event first-hand, in particular what motivated these ladies from across the country to take on the incredible task of organizing an event of this magnitude. It truly is a huge undertaking.

Not only are the local hospitals benefiting from their hard work, but those of us who love to scrapbook are also seeing some great benefits! Take some time to browse through the registration options available - check out the classes being offered and the incredible instructors who are volunteering their time and efforts to teach them. What a great opportunity for scrapbookers to crop, learn (and shop!), and at the same time, support your local children's hospital!

Don't miss out! Visit the Canada's Scrapbooking Crop for Kids web-site for additional details on how you can participate.

Watch for the Checkmarks ...

As you browse through the Crop Across Canada's scrapbook store directory, you'll start to see check marks appearing for a number of the scrapbook stores. This check mark indicates that particular store also offers on-line shopping from their web-site.

At this point, you'll see the enhancements for the BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan & Manitoba stores. Take a look through to see the number of these great Canadian scrapbook stores that also provide this service. The rest of the provinces will follow soon.

Also still to come ... the new section with Canadian on-line scrapbook stores!
