Every week when I sit down to write this post, it makes me happy. “Why?” you ask. I am happy because I love to share giveaways with all of you AND it means that the weekend is almost here. How do you keep busy on your weekends? I spend my time running from one hockey rink to another, to singing rehearsals, and piano practices. I also like to take some time for myself. I enjoy spending time reading and creating scrapbooking layouts. How do you spend your weekends? Is it all about family time? Do you get time in to get your creative juices flowing?
I have the very special privilege of working with the Scrapbook Expo team. While I am not one of the smiling faces you will see every week at the various Expos, I am the person behind the scenes of Scrapbook Expo’s social media accounts. I enjoy finding projects to share with you on Facebook and Pinterest. I interact with you on Instagram and enjoy chatting on Twitter.
On Facebook, we now have a group for each Scrapbook Expo location. These groups are all about you, with me as your host. If you are interested in attending an event, are planning to attend an event, or have already attended an event, these groups are for you. In the groups you can find out more about the event, classes, hotel specials, promotions, workshops, and more. Are you looking to find a roommate? Do you want suggestions on where to eat? Would you like to meet some people before arriving at the crop? Ask your fellow attendees! Take a moment to share photos of your projects and your time at the show. We will also have some special giveaways and contests posted in the groups. These groups will also give you a place to find other scrapbookers who are located near you, to get advice on purchases, or to chat about anything and everything crafty!
Will you join me? Here are links to all of the locations. If you are participating in more than one Expo, or are thinking about it, jump in and join more than one group.

Have you been to an Expo before? There are so many amazing features of these events. One of my favourite parts of the events is the MEGA Make and Take Extravaganza. During this event, you will participate in exclusive Make & Take projects from top companies and learn about new products and techniques. With all of your project supplies, you will also receive full instructions for each and every MEGA Make & Take projects. This event is sure to become a favourite of yours as well!
We know that not all of our Weekly Scrapper readers are able to attend a Scrapbook Expo event. While we can’t bring the Expo to everyone, we can send a bit of the Expo to one of you! This week’s giveaway is a Mystery Box filled with product from the Expo. The Mystery Box may contain a crop kit, a tool from the Latest & Greatest Cool Tools workshop, or the Latest & Greatest Collections workshop. One lucky winner will receive a Mystery Box filled with love and supplies from Scrapbook Expo.
