Win A Retreat Contest 2009


Can you believe it?? Go Scrapping is turning 5!! Yep, 5 and to celebrate 5 Fabulous Years of Go Scrapping Retreats, I thought I would open up a huge contest and give away a WEEKEND RETREAT FOR TWO to not just one, but TWO RETREATS this Fall!! Sound interesting? :)
I have always thought of the wonderful people who attend Go Scrapping Events as part of my extended family - which makes this contest even more perfect!
Starting today - FAMILY DAY 2009- until Monday June 15, 2009 at noon est. entries will be accepted to enter into this great Retreat Give Away. Contestants are to create a new layout, mini book or altered item inspired by the phrase "A FAMILY IS..." and post a link to it here in the comment section of this post thread. Two posts will be randomly chosen with the help of an online selection tool (the Random Integer Generator) from all eligible posts. The first post chosen will win a retreat for two to the Peterborough Retreat held on October 2-4, 2009 and the second post chosen will win a retreat for two to the London Retreat held November 6-8, 2009. There will be no exchanges or substitutions.
Please review the official rules and regulations before entering as incomplete or duplicate entries will not be eligible to win.

Thank you Karen for posting this contest and 'making me' scrapbook a page. Life has been in a state of upheaval so glad to have something fun to focus on to get me back to my love of this craft.
