One World One Heart

Welcome to my blog! This is my first year participating in the One World One Heart event (read about it here) and I am excited to discover new creative bloggers from all over the world.
I am a travel agent living in northern Canada, and I try to do as much travelling as I can. I am perpetually behind on scrapbooking my travels but it is one of my goals to get caught up.
I started out in the crafty world with scrapbooking as a teenager. After college I got back into it and that segued into card making, book making, sewing and other creative pursuits. I recently took an online course to learn how to create digital images and I've fallen in love with digital creations as well.

I have four little prizes for visiting my blog. To enter, leave a comment. If you have a favorite, please let me know and if you are a winner I will send you your favorite if possible.

The event ends on Feb 17th and winners will be announced and notified that day. Winners will be randomly selected.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog!

- Briana
