1st CONTEST at Creo by Lady Katutz

INTRODUCTION:

Hi, everyone!  I don’t know where and how to start as I don’t usually host a contest for my own milestone.  I had been a challenge blog admin or challenge host on various venues here and abroad, locally and internationally.  It’s but fitting in my own recall but yet it is admittedly uncomfortable for me to act on the idea that had been in my mind since my first blogoversary.

I have been conducting blog hops every blogoversary for every international challenge blog of scrapbookin community I have been with.  This time it is for my very own personal crafting blog.

I’m admitting now that I did forego conducting the same on my very own 1st blogoversary here at Creo by Lady Katutz in year 2012 of November.  I guess this is to commemorate lots of my hardwork that I usually see as pure fun and an activity to while my days.  This is for my 1st, 2nd and now 3rd Creo by Lady Katutz blogoversary.  And I know, it was called for that I do a 1st blogoversary contest with My very 1st scrapping and scrapbooking personal hobby blog, my “Let’s Get Scrappy”, which I refused or failed to do in year 2012.

Aside from the above it’s my Rubieth year as I celebrate my 40th birthday this year 2014.  I had been posting my month of April celebration.  Thank you for my family and relatives who did organized such an intimate and special lunch at the very special place I so remember roaming around during my junior years as a practicing Certified Public Accountant.  Thank you!!!  Now here I am doing as what I owe primarily to myself and my blog.

MECHANICS: (Open for happy participants in any part of the world, reachable by our regular post offices, for international participants, and couriers for local Philippine participants)

Create any project with the following themes for me and my Creo by Lady Katutz:
1.       A birthday project in a layout, a handmade card, an altered art or any out-of-the page project that you may think of.  These can be in paper, in canvas or digital/hybrid in nature.  Please make sure to have your digital projects printed and sent to my address.  And also your canvas and paper projects to be done, completed and sent to my address for me to keep, as I won’t be doing the same activity after this.
2.       A blogoversary project, in short an anniversary project, may these be in a layout, handmade card, altered art or any out-of-the page project.  These can be in paper, in canvas or digital/hybrid in nature.  You may choose which of the following blogoversary years to show in your project:
a.       Creo by Lady Katutz – 1st blogoversary for November 11, 2012 to commemorate
b.      Creo by Lady Katutz – 2nd blogoversary for November 11, 2013 to commemorate
c.       Creo by Lady Katutz – 3rd blogoversary for this year November 11, 2014
d.      Let’s Get Scrappy – 1st blogoversary for January 23, 2012 to commemorate
3.       A linky tool via Inlinkz.com is provided at the bottom of this Contest posting.  YOU MAY LINK UP PHOTOS OF YOUR ENTRIES, thru your own BLOG, OPEN FACEBOOK ALBUM, FLICKR GALLERY, and OPEN INSTAGRAM ALBUMS. Link up THE photos of your projects before sending them over to me, in the mailing address or courier office address provided.  I will open the contest up to January 11, 2015 (originally at November 2nd of 2014, though my 4th blogoversary falls on November 11, 2014) with winners announced on my birthday next year in April 2015.  I'll be extending for another year with Inlinkz.com. . . hopefully with the help of blog readers, followers and participants.

An Art Page: Make A Wsih, Kathleen

Good morning, everyone!

Have been contemplating on comiling first a series of my art pages before sharing them.  But here's sharing an addition or continuation to my Bencab Art Journal today.

Done August 15, 2014.  This was patterned after the art pages I created with a travelling notebook group in Postcrossing.com Forum - with a Theme of Creative Travelling Notebook.

An art page for me to keep too =)


with My Mind's Eye washi tapes and Nikki Sivils 6x6 cardstock sheet and a little this and that, my art page above is now completed.

Thanks for looking!!
