Open Competition with GREAT Prizes

Almost this time last year I set a competiton to encourage women to pour their hearts out on a page to reflect honesty in their Book of Me pages. It went absolutely crazy with entries from all over the world - I was stunned. I roped in support from our favourite scrappers who represent inspiration by their name alone from Rhonna Farrer to Cathy Zielske and Ali Edwards. These women spared their time to create for a lonely cause. That lonely cause is ourselves. I am strongly attached to this crusade as I live in fear of my heritage not knowing who I really was. I want to leave an honest reflection for my family - a true stamp of my choices, emotions, events, feelings, good days and bad.
So this year?
This year is to use your hands - literally. But why?
Well, last weekend my friend Roz set a challenge to create a page using hand prints. I was so taken aback by this challange that I put my heart and soul down on that page and added my own personal flourishes to make the page mine - great idea Roz!!! We had to write around our hands using words to describe how, as a mother, I used them.
I encourage you to make a page about your hand prints and interpret it how you wish. Be colourful, be monochromatic, be digi, be arty, be plain, use doodles, use whatever the hell you like but make it personal.
This is open to EVERY scrapper in the world. Postage of the prizes is covered and hopefully Nikon will be involved. I do know that there will be excellent prizes from both the digi and paper field.
Closing date is 1st May and a rolling gallery will be added here of EVERY single entry. There is an optional donation of £1.00 british pound sterling (to find your countries equivalent go here) to be donated to a charity very close to my heart - Muscular Dystrophy. My daughter suffers with a type of this condition and I would love to tie this in with our fundraising. But it is OPTIONAL. My fundraising continues regardless. Paypal donations is easier at this address. I can assure you - this charity is a very worthy cause indeed with several of my scrapping buddies also having children with a form of this condition. Mail your low res entries here - every participant is already entitle to a 50% off digi voucher from Betsy Tuma. Coolio xx

**Important note to my digi pals - before you download**
I average 1000+ downloads on these overlays and whilst I have caught 1000 of your attentions - please join in the above challenge!! You can scan your hands and digi them up. I encourage you tecno wizzes to play for amazing prizes which is open INTERNATIONALLY.

Download this wonderful overlay here. Don't forget, my overlays although created in white are easier to change the colour of, making them as versatile as something erm, very versatile!!! Lol
I have an overlay everyday coming up to help spread the shout on this competition. Its very important you start doing those pages about YOU instead of the kids/pets/holidays etc. Why hide behind the camera girls? - its time to make your mark.
The daily photo challenge on Her Space/My Space challenge is based on the word "read". Mine is used in the past tense as I showcase a small segment of my other hobby - collecting Enid Blyton books. She wrote over 600 you know and I have over 300 including rare copies of magazines, books with original dust jackets, The dated and controversial Three Golliwogs and all the famous fives and secret sevens. Do you remember those good old reading days with Enid? I can't quite grasp Happy and Gay like I used to but my childhood was spoilt with her story telling.
And finally - the Design Collective goes live on Monday for registration. We have updated the home page for you to familiarise yourself with the team. please go and see what's what and we look forward to Monday as we go completely live - wooooooo hoooooo xx

Fabbydooby idea! It will be a HUGE success, of that there is no doubt. You inspired my very first EVER BoM page a year ago, oh how things have changed since then. Thanks KK (((huggies))

Love the hands idea - but I have to say ENID OMG - love, love those books espech faraway tree etc... so much so that my daughter was subjected to them from the first week of her life lol! Reading them is still just as magical now as it was when I was a kid! Except I now pretend I am reading for Kiesha's sake lol

Sinead said...

Thanks so much!

Jennie said...

You are always coming up with such fab ideas Kirsty, do you ever actually sleep?

I think this is such a fab ide, I really must have a go.

Chrystina/Lilaclady said...

Thank you for the overlay. You are a special girl, love reading your blog! I love the many different faces of Kirsty and I will try to have a go at the Hands LO...as I have never paper scrapped in a big way, or whatever reason...I don't know what BOM stands for.???? Does this have to be a paper LO?
Glad to hear of another Steve Irwin fan. I am from Brisbane Australia, so naturally I am a fan too. Ok, have a great day :-)

CoCo said...

Kirsty...thanks for the overlay and the BOM LO is a fabby idea...but Enid...OMG, I am crying at my desk at the sight of those fabby hardbacks. Loved her soooo much. I actually had some of my Dad's collection of Famous Fives when I was growing up...must go hunt them down. Thanks for the memories...and if there's any book you specifically need for your collection...let us know....
My fav is the Children of Cherry Tree Farm. Best ever, ever.

Tracie H said...

Love the challenge Kirsty.
Your promopt last year kicked started my BOM.....thank you.x.x

T.x.

Chris said...

I think I really need to have a go at this... though like chrystina/lilaclady ... I haven't got a clue what BOM is lol. I haven't been big on scrapping but this could be just the shove I need... lots of scope to play...AND get my hands covered in paint/ink mess!! love it.
Your LO are all amazing, thank you for the challenge.
Enid Blyton...Gosh what happy memories (under the blanket with a torch so mam wouldnt know I was still reading at 1am lol)I never could put those books down.

Lynne said...

Thanks for all the overlays they are lovely. I just wanted to let you know that i used one of your overlays on a layout that i just completed. I have a pic of it on my blog. It turned out lovely - thanks kirsty.
I am so definately going to be thinking about your challenge using my hand prints. What a cool idea Roz!

Mrs. Miles said...

Enid Blyton - wow... this takes me back. I was 8 years old when our 'house keeper' came to stay with us... (my mom left six of us kids when I was six - alcohol/divorce etc) ... anyways along came Carol - very very VERY British. She came young and with a little baby boy. She tried her best to tame me and my unuly brothers (six of us in all) Bless her heart - she's passed on now. She was all the best bits of who I am now... she used to recieve Enid books and Noddy and some others... Oh, thanks so much for sharing. And I love your blog. And your generosity. I visit often. May I add you to my links on my blog?

Side by Side said...

How are you keeping track of the submissions?

Is there a seperate blog or email address to send a link to?

BTW...I love your overlays have used them several times! Just lovely.

Shannon said...

Kirsty,
I have only recently discovered your blog thanks to your lovely freebie overlays!!
I'm a fairly novice digiscrapper and love challenges to keep the creative juices flowing. I love your competition idea and have already completed a hands layout entry. Should I email it to you for posting or post it in my regular gallery and just send you a link? Also the paypal donation address is an email so I wasn't real sure how that works...but I would be only to happy to contribute to such a worthy cause... will await further instruction :)
