Some Questions Answered.....and a BooLand Competition.

I want to say a HUGE thank you to all my wonderful supporters. Your comments here on my blog and over on 4Shared truly lift me every time I read them. Please keep them coming. It's the best therapy going.

Blog Header

Somebody asked me about my Blog Header. My apologies for not naming you, I havn't yet mastered doing more then one thing at a time (LOL) so I can't pop over to my blog comments to see who it was but in answer to your question. I used parts of various freebie kits I've collected over time and scrapped it like I would any lo. I can't remember the size I used for the header now but if you have blogger, you can 'customise' your lo including your header to your own style. Just go to 'TEMPLATE' and follow the instructions there. I hope that helps somewhat. I'm sorry I can't do more at the moment for you. It's like the blinkies, I kinda fell onto the tut and somehow came up with this but I can't for the life of me remember quite what I did..... lol. I am pretty sure I have somewhere a great site full of Blog tutorials for designing your custom blog. If I can find the link and its still active, I'll post it as soon as I can.


Now, some of you asked about Blinkies. Well, as you can see, I don't have a Blinkie at the moment, not for lack of trying, you understand but to be honest, I am totally useless at this animation thing. I know, I know, you find that hard to believe, right....... lol. Well, its true. Now, its interesting that that you should have asked about it. Remember in my previous post, I mentioned a competition??? Yup, you guessed it, thats what my competition is all about.

I need two Blinkies.

1 for my blog fans to snag
1 for my new CT team

Here's what I'd like you lovely creative people to do.

Catagory 1

Create a Blinkie using any part of my Moments Collection, (downloads are still available, just scroll till you come to it)

The Blinkie should have on it the words 'I'm a fan of BooLand Designs' or something similar. Remember, I'm into butterflies and Blossoms so if you get those into the blinkie, thats BIG points for you....
..... a reminder of the kits you can use to create the Blinkies. Please ONLY use my kit and a free use font.

Catagory 2

Create a Blinkie for my CT team using any part of my Moments Collection. As above, try and use the butterflies and blossoms and the wording should be something like 'I'm a Booland Blossom happily creating for BooLand Designs'
You can enter one or both catagories for this competition and you can enter as many times as you want. The more the merrier.

And what do you get for all your hard work?

Check it out..... You get to choose any kit from my store (excluding commercial use, which is ok cause I ain't' got any yet lol) Yes, I did say ANY kit. Thats 1 complete kit of your choice from my store for EACH catagory. So, if you enter both catagories and win, you get TWO complete kits. Now, is that a competition worth entering?
The deadline for all entries is 7th Dec and Winners will be notified by the 10th Dec. Good luck everyone and to wet the appitite, here's a little look at what you could soon have.... Email your entires to me at booboo6204 at hotmail dot co dot uk stating which catagory you are entering and include the link for the blinkie which should be stored on a site such as Photobucket.
BooLandDesigns Store

So come on my lovely bloggers, don't be shy. I can't wait to see what you all come up with and of course, as always, for all who enter, there will be a little something delicious for you in the post. You just can't lose at BooLand.
Here are some examples of Blinkies I like to give you an idea....

It's not too late to apply for my ct team. You don't have to have experience. Enthusiasm is much more important. I'm looking for happy, sparkly people who enjoy scrapping, love my style and are happy to post their lo's using my kits on various blogs/galleries etc. Don't worry if you can't commit to the full CT duties. I am happy to look at anyone who can spare even a little time so don't do what I did for way to long and think you're not good enough. Give it a go. What have you got to loose? Email me at booboo6204 at hotmail dot co dot uk ASAP as time is running out. Thank you all and I look forward to hearing from you.

SAS-y CT Team
Here are some layouts our wonderful SAS store CT Kyda, created for me over the weekend. I'm overjoyed with the work this very talented and lovely lady put into her lo's for me. Thank you Kyda, you really are a SAS-y Star.

These were done using my PaperBlitz and Anemone Kits

And here are some of the Store CT's lo's with our fantastic November Mega Kit. WOW girls.....

Aldercreek, AJR65, Crabbi

nnorcutt, crabbi, nnorcutt
This is just a small sample of their work. Didn't these ladies do a fantastic job.

The SAS-y November mega Kit is available here for only $6.95 until December 11th when it will go to its regular price of $9.95.

Your Freebies
I know, you've all been amazingly patient and I love you guys for that. Here is your little freebie fest for today. Enjoy. There are lots more to come.

Thats all for now folks. Come back soon when there will be more thrilling news and goodies for you all and once again, GOOD LUCK for my Blinkie Competition and the great SAS-y Designer Competition.
Big Hugs
