A SWEET PAGODA CHALLENGE 'N GIVEAWAY

ETA on Sunday, August 8
If you do not own Pagoda you can still participate with any image that will resemble any Asian theme. If you still can find any, please...do not let that stop you. As the last resort you can use any fish, dragon, temple building. Be creative and make it Pagoda. Remember to have fun!

 PAGODA

I love the Yin Yang and its meaning.

What is Yin Yang?
This symbol (Yin-Yang) represents the ancient Chinese understanding of how things work. The outer circle represents "everything", while the black and white shapes within the circle represent the interaction of two energies, called "yin" (black) and "yang" (white), which cause everything to happen. They are not completely black or white, just as things in life are not completely black or white, and they cannot exist without each other.

to know more about the meaning and theory.

(The inside sentiment is a rub-on).
 *****
Among so many challenges in our crafting community I would like you join me and try the challenge where you choose an image and  make a project with it, pretty simple. Of course, some of them have/had sponsors; 
I do not.
But... I do have a friend who makes stamps and she is willing to donate a customized stamp you can use for the back of your cards/projects.

Her name is Eileen and she owns a store on Ebay and goes under the name of qiqi7759. I have ordered my customized stamps from her and received nothing but excellent stamps and an excellent service. Not too mention a friendship too. That is a bonus you do not always get. :)

If you are interested in participating in this challenge please, read the details carefully.


 I want to use the PAGODA cartridge for this challenge in honor of my friend Eileen,  and you can use any of these five images.

1- the dragon from page 34 
2- the fish from page 41 OR 3- the fish from page 42 
4- the temple from page 60 OR 5- the shrine from page 61. 
 You can add any other images to the ones above if you are using Pagoda. Those images can be from Pagoda or anything else you would like to. If you do not own Pagoda please read the ETA below. Thanks so much!

  I won't be using Random.org to choose the winner because I really want to choose it myself and for this very reason,
I will limit the entries to a max of 50.

---It is a requirement to be a follower of my blog because this way you will be automatically updated of what is going on with the challenge since this one is a bit different than most.

---Your project must be new for this challenge. It has to come from your heart and what this means to me is that it will be your original project, not something you saw somewhere else. 

---However, you can get inspired from something you saw before but PLEASE....make it entirely your own. 

---You must have a blog and must post about this challenge for the duration of it with a link to my blog. 

---And lastly I would like to send the winning project to Eileen as a way to say Thank You for her kindness. I will pay for postage.

I will be using INLINKS for the first time. If you have any problems linking let me know in the comments area and your blog address for me to contact you.

If you would like to participate, please, read everything again and make sure we understand each other.
The deadline for submitting will be August 31st. 2010

  9. OMG, Agnes, I am soooo sorry but I have to somehow delete my entry.

    I didn't realize (until I submitted it) that, if I were to win, you want to give this to someone. I made this for a friend of mine.

    Pays to read "everything" before submitting.

    Sorry, again!
