:GIVEAWAY: Celebrating 50,000 Visitors

Well, I think I've passed a benchmark with my modest little blog.

I just passed 50,000 hits!! It still amazes me more than just a little how many people have visited my blog since I started it. It's not just my mom either (Hi, you!)...I've had visitors from every continent except Antarctica. That's just cool!

And some of these people come back and visit from time to time, leave comments and make it feel like a 'community' here! Love it!

To celebrate, I have something WONDERFUL to giveaway...and I have five of for each 10,000 visitors to my blog! It's not scrapbooking product, but it is scrapbooking related and has something to do with the feeling of community that I mentioned above.

I have been a member of WeScrap for about a year now and it is an amazing community of scrapbookers. Also known as the International Scrapbooking Association (ISA), it is a place to share our craft and our lives as well as find fresh inspiration that can't be found anywhere else.
Description for the WeScrap site:

The International Scrapbooking Association (ISA) is the worlds largest and most diverse scrapbooking organization in the world. We are a global resource for all aspects of the industry. With representatives from all across the globe we bring and promote scrapbooking world wide. With excellent customer service, vast resources and advanced technology we can help you as a scrapbooker bring your work to life and show it to the world.

Company History

The ISA was originally founded in 2003 as the National Scrapbooking Association (NSA) based in Houston Texas. As times have changed, the needs of the industry have grown, borders eliminated and more scrapbookers using the internet, the NSA has expanded its services, implemented new technologies and transitioned in to the International Scrapbooking Association (ISA).
WeScrap has members from all over the world - the US, Canada, South Africa, Australia, Czech Republic and the UK just to name a few. It is amazing to see the inspiration and ideas that come from these scrappers from around the globe!

I have been a member of one of their iTeams since February and have greatly enjoyed the involvement that I have had on the message board and in the gallery as part of that position. I have also submitted several articles to monthly newsletter and that has been a great experience as well.
