Join in the fun a win a prize!

Hi there!
Thanks for stopping by.
Just looked at the clock. 6.30 already! 
Where did that day go??
Everything’s a bit topsy turvy today.
Got 4 demos to prep for the SUnday afternoon show.
Spent way too long on one demo, which I will never be able to complete in 10 minutes on the show, 
and now I’ve got to cram the rest. Silly girl. No, really.
5 hours work for a 10 minute demo? Now I’ve got to do a dozen stages, so that I can fast forward and cram it in on the day!!



That said, I quite enjoyed doing it, 
and am pleased with the result thus far....

Then just now, the Blog bell rang in my head, and I thought,
“Oh confound it.” (confound is synonymous with sod, right?)
But then I had a lightbulb moment. Ding!!!
I know! Let’s have a competition!
Let’s get you lovely peeps at home involved in this 
Pre-Show chaos!   
I’m going to show you the start of the 5 hour labour of love: 


and the middle.


This is where you come in. It’s a 2-parta.
You love these challenges don’t ya!
Tell me exactly what I did to arrive at this place.
No. Not my life story. 
I know only too well how I ended up here! And it would take a lot longer than 5 hours to write it down!
Focus on the artwork...


List the ingredients: what card, what colours, etc etc etc.
Then list the steps.
Sound like a lot of work? Give over! That’s the easy part.
Once you’ve worked this bit out, I want you to get in my head (scary place today!)  and work out where I went next...
Yep. List the steps right through to the end. 

If you’ve got the stamp and a lot of time on your hands, great! 
You can even make it!

But the name of the game is to figure out how I got to this stage, and where I went from here.

Email me your results before midnight Saturday,

barbaragray123@hotmail.com

 and then watch Create & Craft on Sunday at 5pm 
to see if you got it right!
I will know if we have a winner, and will shout about it for sure.

If somebody nails it exactly, I will send them a £50 Gift Voucher on Monday, and a Job Application Form! No, bypass the formalities, my job’s yours!!

Even if we don’t find the owner of the Magic Slipper, 
I’ll draw a winner for a £20 Gift Voucher just for trying.
But you’ve got to be in it to win it as they say.

So join in the creative process, 
and put your creative mastermind to work!

Must dash, said the Mexican.
Must go, said the Russian.

much love,
