Witchy’s Contest

     Posted by Lori on October 4, 2009

Fall is here and the colors are bright
And it’s time for a contest that’s sure to delight,
Here’s the rules and requirements before you start
Following them all ….. now that is your part.

Here’s hoping that you all will enjoy and have fun
If you are new to this blog, then please jump right in,
If you have any questions, then please just do ask
I will answer you promptly ….. so you can start on this task.

Create a display for fall or Halloween
Or a combination of both for everyone to see,
Out on the lawn or by the doorway
Any location you choose will be ….. a-okay.

A white pumpkin must be visible to me
Plain or decorated, as long as I can see,
Real or faux, either is totally okay
May I paint one?  Of course, yes, you may.

Now with this white pumpkin I’ll be taking a closer peek
To see what cool things you do to it to make it unique,
Now there just might be a special prize for this white one
So let the creativity flow and have lots of fun.

Next thing that must be in view
Colorful leaves is rule number two,
Red, yellow and orange, whatever you find
Or all of the above ….. can be combined.

Scrapping supplies are required for rule number three
And I know that you all will surely agree,
So many options you have with this rule
Using scrapping supplies will be ….. oh so cool.

Rule number four is really quite easy
An orange pumpkin I need and I’m not really fussy,
A real one, a faux one, a scrapped one or two
As long as it’s orange and it’s in my plain view.

Rule number five you must now obey
Four pictures I’ll accept of your final display,
One of it all and three closeups are great
For these it will be hard for me to await.

Corn stalks, brown weeds, gourds and cattails
Heck you can even throw in a hay bale,
Whatever you do, please have lots of fun
That’s the main part of this little mission.

The part that you will like about this contest
Is that you have many days to think and assess,
The deadline to have these photos to me
Is October 29th - that’s when it will be.

loveisinthedetails2@mts.net is where to email me
The pictures of your entries that you want me to see,
Please write - Witchy’s Contest - in the subject line
And I’ll reply to let you know I’ve received them in time.

The prizes for this I know you’ll adore
They are gift certificates to the LIITD store,
Three chances you have to win a prize
Of $100, $75, or $50 - so please give it a try.

This contest is open to each and everyone
Who wants to join in on this Fall/Halloween fun,
The more who join the the more fun it will be
To see all of the displays and the creativity.

Some judges I’ve asked to come and help me
Decide on who will be the final top three,
So please put on your thinking caps and lets begin
Come on now - bring out your designer within.

Right now I’m working on my own display
That I hope to share with you in a few days,
I’m having lots of fun and hope that you’ll see
How much fun this decorating and creating can be.
