    It’s so refreshing to have a Canadian contest, and to celebrate Canada’s birthday- rather than always reading about our neighbours down south (not to take anything away from them) – but it’s wonderful to visit our Canadian designers and read about their inspiration.

  17. Happy Birthday Canada, what a great tour to celebrate a gorgeous country. =)
