Give Away Time! and I was Published in this Months Edition of Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine!

(for give away scroll to the bottom of this post)
Yep you heard me right! Last News Year Eve I set a goal for myself to be published in a Scrap Booking magazine, one you would have to purchase at a store.
I had been published in a online magazine but I wanted to see my work in print and my dream came true!
Not only was I published I was honored to meet the gals and have my picture taken with one of the co owner of the magazine last weekend at The Canadian Scrapbooker Carnival held in Edmonton.
This is Jackie and me (you couldn't wipe the smile off my face that day) holding a picture of the Halloween cascading card I submitted.
This picture is my beautiful daughter Christy who goes to all the scrapbooking events with me. She even had to take the day off work for this one but she didn't seem to mind. 
This is just a small portion of the girls that were scrapbooking
 Christy hard at work.
This is another picture of the brat and me in my Dollar store glasses! I cannot believe I left my good glasses at home, so needless to say I did not get much done. I was always to busy looking for these darn things and trying to see straight out of them!
Teddy Bear Series Witch for the Challenge at My Crafting Channel

3 card my daughter whipped up for the girls at work.
Another Bear for the Teddy Bear Challenge over at My Crafting Channel.
I also worked on a Christmas mini album but did not get very far with it.
The carnival was held in Sherwood Park which is only about 20 minutes from my place but I decided to make a girls weekend out of it and we rented a room for the night. So not only did we scrap our hearts out but we were able to kick back have a couple of beers, go swimming in the pool and finish the night off in the hot tub.
This is a picture of our room, I told Christy not to touch anything until we made sure they did not make a mistake with our room, not bad if I say so myself.
So all in all in was a fun weekend and I was able to get a couple more bears done for the challenge over at My Crafting Channel Teddy Bear Series!
I am also linky this card up with DL Art Thankful  Thursday September Linky Party.
Now if you have stayed with me this long I would love to give a copy of the magazine away to one of my wonderful followers along with instruction on how to make the cascadingcard and a few goodies to help you get started.

 Just leave a comment and I will pick a winner next week.
As always thanks for stopping bye, have a great week!
