CONTEST TIME..................

oooooooooo I love it when I get to announce a new contest and this new contest features an awesome awesome prize. Our sponsors for this prize comes from an online store called My Scrapping buddy.......One lucky winner will receive ONE FRED TABLE...........This table will surely make your life 100% better....All crafters should own one....Here is a bit about the FRED table:

The first F.R.E.D. was crafted in Brian's driveway for his wife, who loved scrapbooking but suffered from herniated discs and neck pain. She started bringing F.R.E.D. to crops, where people frequently asked her where they could get one. Brian and Shawn decided to build an improved table with the input of a group of scrapbookers at a local crop. Out of this joint effort, inside a few NJ/PA garages and a machine shop, F.R.E.D. was born!

F.R.E.D.'s ANGLEDSay good-bye to the neck pain you experience after hours of scrapbooking. Since the table faces you at an angle, you can design layouts without having to bend over your pages or stand up to get a better view. The angle also lets you push the table back to create more workspace in front of you, while still having a great view of your layout as it grows.
F.R.E.D.'s MAGNETICThe removable steel mats each hold a page up to 12 x 14 in size. Your photos and embellishments are held onto the page with powerful magnets that keep everything in place until you're ready to glue. You can use several mats at once to design entire sections of your scrapbook, re-arranging your layouts as much as you like since nothing is permanently affixed to the pages.
F.R.E.D.'s PORTABLESimply fold the legs in and latch the tables shut like a briefcase. The mats and magnets can be stored right inside.
F.R.E.D.'s EXPANDABLEYou can connect as many tables together as you wish. Great for groups of friends and family who are working on a whole scrapbook together.

-----------------------------

FRED was created for Brian's wife who suffered a severe neck injury and had difficulty scrapbooking for more than a few minutes at a time. The table soon became a hit at every crop she attended. F.R.E.D. is handcrafted out of wood and steel materials to be sturdy enough to handle years of scrapbooking use. We held focus groups to obtain feedback and to ensure we understood what you, the customer, wanted. We modified the design when we could to accommodate any suggestion people brought to us. When it came to naming the table, we held a contest so our customers could put their final stamp on it. F.R.E.D., as it is now called, was built for really easy designing. F.R.E.D. will be there to help you design your pages, because after all, everybody needs a scrapping buddy.
TOTALLY AWESOME......................SOUNDS LIKE WE ALL NEED A FRED TABLE
This picture shows what the table looks like............the winner will receive ONE table....unlike the picture shows two tables put together....
Here is exactly what the winner will receive:
1 table - (14"x14") angled workspace
1 metal mat - (12"x12")
1 magnet bag - (8 magnets with felt pads on one side)


Now for the details of the contest.............................
Since February is the month of LOVE, we here at the bbtb want to see some projects using some hearts..........
1. You must use at least one heart on your project.......BUT the heart CAN'T be red....(this should be fun not using the traditional red for a Valentine Heart).
2. You must use at least one cut from ANY cricut cartridge.
3. Only 2 entries per person.
4. All former bbtb winners are welcome to enter.
5. Contest is open to everyone.....(international and United States)
6. Please post a DIRECT link in the comment section where I can find your project for the contest................please don't put, my project is on my blog............most of the time I can't find it....
7. Contest will end on the last day of February at midnight...
HAVE FUN................

I'm game and since none of my hearts all red (there are a couple with red background but plenty of others that aren't) I belive this will qualify......or at least I hope so.....

So excited to post my first item for your contest. I made a 10 x 10 box from chip board, bazzil paper and Autumn Leaves paper. I used Cricut Sampler, Stretch Your Imagination, and Doodlecharms. I hope it qualifies. My pic was too big for cricut website so I posted it on splitcoast. There are three views on that site. Hope you like it!

Here is my first project for this wonderful challenge. So glad that I finally buckled down and worked on an assigned project. LOL http://mumofmanee.blogspot.com/2009/02/love-note.html

MoCutz said...

My 2nd project, and my favorite. I saw this quote on the web and immediately wanted to use it for all my babies. Used design studio for the simple green and black hearts, so they matched my special lettering in the phrase. Good luck to everyone. Regina, thanks for inspiring me to finally get my wall done!
