Super Special Exciting Competition!

Hello friends
A few days ago I happened to mention that Spellbinders are running a competition...
today I thought I would explain it in a little more detail because it isn't any ordinary competition -
it is super special!

Firstly - it is the  BIGGEST contest they've ever hosted to date! 
and it gives you a chance of winning $5,000 Grand Prize Package from Spellbinders and 
their cross promotional partners.  
They are also going to be choosing a 2nd place winner to receive a $1,000 prize package and a 
$500 3rd place prize package.

This means not only will you receive Spellbinders products but also products
from all of these WorldWin Papers, Want2Scrap, Xyron, KaiserCraft

That is some serious crafty stuff to play with!

How do you participate? It's easy!
Simply create an original project using at least two (2) Spellbinders dies.  
Be creative, dabble with something different -  push your own creative boundaries. 
They are looking for crafters and artists who have really taken on the challenge to truly "Explore Beyond".
You need to take photos of each step of your project - this is because if you are chosen as a finalist you will be asked to submit these photos.
Submit a photo (of your finished project only!) to the appropriate Spellbinders Flickr Group.
Contest runs from November 26th, 2012 through December 26th, 2012 Midnight EST.
There are categories:

The essential rules bit..
Official Rules:
You may enter more than once in multiple categories. Projects entered must be original. A total of twelve (12) finalists will be chosen. There will be two (2) finalists from each category. Finalists will be announced on December 27, 2012. Finalists will be asked to submit photos of the steps of their projects to validate their originality. Finalists will be asked to mail in their final original project to the Spellbinders office. Original projects must be received by end of day, Friday, January 4, 2013.
A celebrity panel of judges will review the twelve (12) final submissions and narrow it down to three (3) winners. Winners will be announced on Friday, January 11, 2013. There will be one (1) Grand Prize winner of a $5,000 prize package and the project will be featured at the Spellbinders booth at the Craft and Hobby Association show on January 12, 2013. There will be one (1) 2nd prize winner of a $1,000 prize package and featured on the Spellbinders blog. There will be one (1) 3rd prize winner of a $500 prize package and featured on the Spellbinders blog.

I appreciate that was a lot to read and we are all very busy as we hurtle towards Christmas,
but if you can take some time out to do a little crafting then have a go at entering.
Perhaps you are heading off to a craft group today, get everyone to have a go!
I would be over the moon if any of the winners come from the UK!  
I'm back tomorrow.
Take care.

Hi Christine, I would love to try but feel my creative ability is very limited and think this is out of my league.

Good luck to any of you entering the competition, what a shame it is right on Christmas soooo busy right now, baking etc has taken over crafting at the moment.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend Christine. C B W Carolyn x
