Are you ready for a contest??

** I will keep this post at the top...be sure to scoll down for new posts**

Yup...that's right. I have been wanting to give away some more candy for Spring. But I wanted to do something different. So here it is...this will be called Contain Yourself Spring Giveaway...well it is not entirely a Giveaway...I am makin' you work for it ;0)

I want to see your best 'altered container' creations! It can include any of the following:

*Chipboard Coaster box
*Paintcan
*Lunch Tin
*Bandaid Tin
*Altered Food Containers
*Altered Pop Tops
*Altered boxes of anykind!!
if you come up with any other ideas that I have missed let me know and I will add it to the list!

This contest will run until the end of the month. One entry per person. All entries are to be received by 12:00pm (MST) April 30th. This gives you lots of time. So I would like you all to create something especially for this contest, but of course something that you can use. So if you have a bday coming up this month or in May this is the perfect excuse to get busy!!

I will be the sole judge, but it is my contest and my blog ;0) I don't have pics of the prizes yet, but I will be giving away for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. Prizes will include some of the following and I will be adding more!
*Primas
*Chipboard Coasters
*Designer Paper
*Ribbons
*Brads
*Doodle Genie
*Cuttlebug Embossing Folders

Once you have done your masterpiece take a photo and send a copy to tlhoughton@shaw.ca with Contain Yourself Spring GiveAway in the subject line. Once the contest is closed and the winners have been chosen, I will post the pics of all the winners and all entries so that you can admire everyones creations!

Now get out there and create a masterpiece...oh and have fun too! ;0)

Hi Tracy,

I can't wait to think about something to make for your contest. How about altered journals, altered notebooks, accordion albums or maze books? I'm been having so much fun with these lately. Can't wait to come up with something nice and girly for your contest! :)

What a great idea. I hope you post all the creations and if people would leave a link to where we could find directions or a template, that would be great, too!

Hope you're having a relaxing day.

Hugs,
Julie

Tracy,
I am working on a couple altered projects right now. I will send you photos on one of them once I am done.

Great contest!
