Scrapbooking giveaway day

True Scrap scrapbooking event

A very special giveaway for you today – and it’s open until the 20th! One person will win a free basic admission pass to the True Scrap online scrapbooking event on the 7th to 9th of April. That’s a $97 value, so definitely worth leaving a comment!

For one entry into the prize drawing, leave a comment on this post. Easy!
For an additional entry into the prize drawing, link to this post on your blog, Facebook page or Twitter feed and indicate as such on your comment here. You get one extra entry for each of those, for a maximum of four entries! Entries close at midnight UK time on the 20th of March, 2011.

And a little bonus for you if you sign up for True Scrap via this blog post. If you sign up for the event (basic admission or the fancier version that lets you have access to the classes after the weekend too) through my link, you can also have a free class. Here’s how: click here and sign up for True Scrap. You’ll get a receipt via email. Forward that receipt to me via email (shimelle at gmail dot com) and let me know what class you would like: Blogging for Scrapbookers (starts 21st of March), Learn Something New (runs every September) or True Stories (an archived class you can do at your own pace). So that means you’ll get access to the full event plus full access to a class here too! (If you’ve already taken all three classes, let me know in your email and I have an option for that too.)

True Scrap includes a full weekend of workshops online, including a keynote interview with Ali Edwards, a workshop with me and lots more, so if you’ve always wanted to go to a scrapbooking convention but it seemed like a lot of hassle or cost to travel to something like that, this could be perfect! It’s a convention right in your own house.

I’m spending a lot of time on buses this week as we are crossing through the mountains and plains of South America. Have a great week!
