Crop Out Diabetes Day 4 Update
Welcome to day four of Crop Out Diabetes! Thanks for joining us in raising money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Below I will share the specific how to's on joining a challenge along the hop. If you haven't tried an online challenge, you will find it easy and fun and this is for a great cause! And if your like me, snow is headed your way so why not join me in creating something, and avoiding the housework!?
Update on me: surgery went well! Can't wait to have full use of my stairs and craft room again! Thanks for your prayers and well wishes!
So, onto the challenge how to's:
1) Visit all the blogs and decide which one or one's to participate in. I like to choose a challenge that helps me achieve a scraping goal or inspires me. And sometimes, I pick one just because I love the prize! So, I needed to finish the back of my planner for 2011. And I chose the challenge at P.S. I Love You Scrapbooking to with red and grey. I created a fancy frame with some swirls in Cindy Loo and put the frame from Storybook underneath. The paper is Cosmo Cricket. Do you see the grey in the back ground mat?
2) Take a photo of your finished item and upload it to your computer. Save it in a file format for the web.
3) Visit the site with the challenge you wish to enter and follow the instructions on participating. If you have a blog, you may be asked to create a blog post and copy the link for that post and add it to the challenge hosting blog. No blog? Just leave a comment, or email the host blog with a photo!
Prize drawings are random so you just need to enter to qualify! Last year, I won 3 prizes!
