It has been 4 days since another season of The Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnivals have come to an end AND I am still overwhelmed by how absolutely amazing the events turned out – THANKS TO ALL OF YOU! This year Edmonton and Calgary raised over 3000.00$ for The Christy Riopel Art Scholarship – THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!! This is so incredible – I seriously am overwhelmed by the out pouring of support from all of you! THANK YOU THANK YOU ! Christy’s husband, Mike Riopel, sent us a personal note of gratitude to extend to all of you that participated. He was also overwhelmed with all your generosity.
The scholarship is intended to be given out to children who wish to pursue their love of art and who need it the most. Christy was a huge part of the Boys and Girls Club of Calgary and therefore it is through this club that the scholarships will be handed out. To date one scholarship has been awarded to a very deserving recipient. I know without a doubt, that Christy is absolutely smiling and loving that we are helping these these young artists flourish.THANK YOU once again.
You can follow along as we continue to raise money for Christy’s Scholarship or donate whenever you like. It is really very easy – CLICK HERE for the details.
The Photo Booth
The photo booth at the carnivals are so much fun. Croppers stop in – I take their photos – then I print them out right on site and hand deliever them to wherever they are sitting in the crop area. One of my most favourite things is when the croppers turn around and scrapbook a page or two using these photos. Such a great keepsake from the event and it really is an honour that our magazine is being showcased in your scrapbook albums! THANK YOU! Here are a couple of examples for you to enjoy.
I know you have heard me say this many times – here on the blog and if you were at the carnivals – many times there aswell (giggle giggle) – we simply could not have such AMAZING events without the support of our wonderful sponsors. They are the backbone of these events and we simply can not say thank you enough. Click on each of the following logos and check out all the wonderful things these sponsors have to offer. Their hearts are big – so show them so scrappy love!
