Gecko Galz Giveaway


This month marks my one year anniversary as a design team member of Gecko Galz.  Indeed, time flies when you're having fun!
And I'm happy to say I get to do this for another year! 

To celebrate, Leanne, our most generous Gecko Galz owner, is providing for my giveaway one $25 shopping spree at Gecko Galz !  
One lucky winner will have fun shopping at Gecko Galz for collage sheets, digital papers, and digital stamp sets.

How do you win this shopping spree?
Let's start with everyone having the opportunity to download this  gorgeous image, part of the December release, Beauty Unveiled It is ATC sized, 2-1/2 by 3-1/2 inches.  I printed mine on matte photo paper using best quality in my software. To download, click on image, then right click to download.

And here's a real treat....  Heather Hudson, who now has her own line of collage images for sale at Gecko Galz (yay, Heather!), made this special collage sheet for me which means really for you..... 

Now that you have your freebie, make something with it!  Link it up here for all to admire.  On December 18  24, I will choose a winner by random draw.  I will draw by putting the names in a hat, so that those of you who are first in or last in have an equal chance! Winner will be notified by email with the special code for redeeming $25 worth of product at Gecko Galz so please leave a way to contact you! 

What qualifies as an entry?  Anything your inner artist wants to create with this imageDigital or paper/cloth etc. craft is accepted.  Image may be reproduced to any size.

Those pesky rules:

This image must be used.

One entry per person.

It is important to note that what you create may only be used for my Gecko Galz giveaway and not combined with other Gecko Galz giveaways offered by other design team members this month.  However, feel free to spread the word about Gecko Galz by entering your creation at other challenges at non-Gecko Galz sites!

Such as I'm entering my example at these challenge sites:
Crafty Bloggers Network:  Challenge 6 Anything Goes (month of December) 
Crafts4Eternity:  R100 Christmas Chaos (mine is the opposite--calm) til Thursday
Sugar Creek Hollow #40 Distressing 

Please link directly to your blog post, not your overall blog site. (First time I'm using inlinkz so I hope I did it correctly.) If you do not have a blog, please leave a comment with a link to your specific post at Flicker or other on-line photo collection.  If you have no posting site and want to enter, leave a comment here requesting my email. 

I reserve the right to not include an entry that did not follow the pesky rules.  

Too many rules--------- let's have some fun! 

I can't wait to see what you create with this Gecko Galz image.  Here is what I made:

Additional materials:
upholstery swatch from book I found at thrift store-- I folded the swatch over doubled cardstock and glued down, then placed hanger on top. Sentiment from Paper Whimsy; distressed green music collage paper from the Paper Studio--torn and inked with Ranger vintage photo distress ink; dresden scrap; Stampin' Up die and their glitter paper for snowflake; the flower is either Prima or from big box store; miscellaneous trims.  Green ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon; red tulle from Stampin' Up. Sakura Gelly Roll clear star pen on Gecko Galz image's veil.
