Happy Friday! I don’t know about you, but I am totally ready for May flowers to bloom from these crazy April showers (or thunderstorms) we have been experiencing. I love a little rain shower, but wow, we have had buckets and buckets of rain falling from the sky. I guess I should be happy that it is not snow, though!
Over the last month, I have been working with a number of manufacturers in order to schedule some fabulous giveaways for the next few months. Wow, you guys are going to love what we have in store for you! I am super excited to share what I am learning about these products and collections and to be privileged to have the opportunity to share my experiences and creations with you, and also to host the giveaways. YAY!
As we fly full steam ahead into the 2015 season of Scrapbook Expo events, I thought it would be fun to give away a couple pairs of admission tickets. If you have been to a Scrapbook Expo event before, you know that the shopping, make and takes, workshops, and everything is awesome. If you have not been, I hope you will take my advice and head to an event near you. If there is not an event near you, make a weekend getaway out of it and go have fun and do something wonderful for yourself. I am sure you will not regret it!
Before I dive in and let you know how you can win some admission passes, let me first ask you, are you on Facebook? Did you know that we have set up a Facebook Group for each and every event? Will you be joining us at a Scrapbook Expo event? Will this be your first time attending? Would you like to learn more about the Expos from staff, fellow attendees and vendors?
Join our new Facebook groups. Each location has its own group and you are welcome to join as many of them as you would like. Here is a link to all of the different groups … http://scrapbookexpo.com/show-facebook-groups/

While we are talking about giveaways and prizes, did you know that we have a special 3pm drawing on both Friday and Saturday on the show floor? These prizes are worth more than $100 each. Wouldn’t it be nice to end your day of shopping with a prize like that? But wait, there’s more. On Saturdays, there will be a drawing to give away a Cricut Explore® machine. What? Did you hear that correctly? You sure did! At each and every event, the Scrapbook Expo team gives away a Cricut Explore® machine to one lucky winner. Now that is amazing!
This week I am giving away not one but TWO sets of two admission tickets. If you win this giveaway, you can take yourself to the event twice, or you could take a friend. Doesn’t that sound fun? It sure does! Imagine yourself walking the show floor, vendors to your left, more vendors to your right, beautiful scrapbooking and stamping products as far as the eye can see. I can imagine it already. Hey, if you win two tickets, can I join you? Just kidding. I will be hanging out in Toronto for most of the year but I do hope to attend a Scrapbook Expo later this year. I had a blast when I went last year! You will, too!
To be entered in this week’s giveaway, leave a comment on this post telling me if you like to participate in online challenges? I am hoping to start a weekly challenge on Instagram and/or Pinterest and would like to know if you would enjoy participating with me!
Last week’s giveaway was a mystery box from the Scrapbook Expo team. I always think mystery boxes are fun to receive as you never know what you will find when you open the box! In order to enter the giveaway last week, you had to leave a comment on this blog post, telling us what inspires you. As always, I love reading all the responses and always enjoy how different everyone thinks. The lucky winner of the Scrapbook Expo mystery box is … Cathy Beach!
Congratulations, Cathy Beach! I love your answer, too. I am always amazed when I look back through photos at some of memories that I have forgotten about but that become so real again by just looking at the photos! Please send your mailing address to Jen Walker and include ‘Scrapbook Expo Mystery Box winner’ in the subject line.
Don’t forget … If you want a chance to win the Scrapbook Expo admission passes, you need to leave a comment on this post telling me if you like to participate in online challenges.
