Handmade Highlights Contest #1 !!!! May 1-7
« on: April 30, 2012, 06:04:26 PM »
HHC#1 - This is the first in what I hope can be an ongoing bit of fun here.  Here's the deal:
Participants will make a Handmade Highlight according to a selected theme, it will go a week, the winner will be the one with the most comments and Facebook likes using the Fb button on your highlight page combined (comments+FB "like"button clicks=total count)
*You can comment on your own Highlight as many times as you feel the need to but only one will count towards your total.

_______________________________________________________________________
Theme: Make a highlight using a SONG as your theme.
 
Please put "HHC#1 plus the title of the song" as your highlight title


****The winner will get a 200 page 4.5" x 5.5" mini book made by me in their favorite color perfect for tucking away in your purse, backpack or glove box.****

EXAMPLE:

_______________________________________________________________________


This will go from May 1 thru May 7.
Once this one is finished it would be awesome if someone else would host the next. All you'd need to do is pick a theme and provide a small prize to the winner. It could be anything, not even necessarily something you make, it could be a small set of note cards, pretty beads etc. small but nice, something you'd like to receive and won't cost much to send.


Any questions just ask. Post your entry links here!


Tip: it might help to spend a few minutes messaging the artists you include in your entry - they may be able to help boost your count by commenting and sharing! ;)

I adore this!  I'm going upstairs to get my computer to get started... already have my fave song planned.  And I'd be happy to come up with the next theme & prize!
