100 th Blog Post Giveaway

Time has flown since I started my blog in February of this year. I am fast approaching my 100th post. So, to celebrate I am having some giveaways. I have had fun blogging, and visiting so many of your blogs.  Lots of inspiration and ideas to be found. Thank you for sharing your creativity with me.

First prize is a triptych handmade journal that I made. It is hand stitched, tied with sheer black ribbon, and the handmade paper that I covered my book board is a cream/black/gold paisley print. There are 4 signatures inside and some overlap each other. The triptych is unfinished waiting for the winner to decorate the cover and inside pages. You can use this as a journal or a photo album journal. Measurements 8 x 10 3/4 inches.
Below is a photo of the closed journal and the 2nd photo with the book open.
I have a decorated triptych photo journal that I did several years back on my picturetrail. If you want to see how I decorated mine with paints and photos. http://www.picturetrail.com/elaine_akers

Second Prize: Is another handmade book that I made. This is an accordion book with blank pages waiting for the winner to decorate the inside pages. The outside is purple velvet that was rubber stamped with a magnolia image. Tied with sheer light purple ribbon. Book size is 5 x 5 inches.

Third prize: Old book board Bingo cards that I already punched holes in the Bingo cards to make a journal. Included are the book rings, a page that hold baseball cards to be cut down and added to your journal. Some tags, large grommets, punchella for adding paint to pages, old paper from a vintage book, a tiny key and doorknob and envelope to use as a page. You will just need to cut down cardstock, punch your papers to get started. Bingo journal size 5 1/2 x 7 1/4.

Now, how do you win one of these prizes? Just leave a comment on my blog for a chance to win. If you mention my giveaway on your blog and leave another comment telling me you did so you will have a 2nd chance of winning.  Leave a way for me to get in touch with you. Good Luck to one and all.
