I Entered A Contest!

Ever since I was little I've always entered contests. My elementary school had a May Fair every year and gave prizes for the best poster. Fire Prevention week was another poster event. Then I reached out further. I can't remember what show gave away Polaroid cameras but I must have entered that over a thousand times - and never won. I continued to enter various contests as I got older. You know trying to win a free car, trip or whatever. Still I never won. I think it was the anticipation that kept me going.

Well, when I started with Firecrackinmama's Zazzle they had contests going about every other month. Now I knew from the start I didn't have a chance because of the awesome talent of others who helped me along as I got started. Still it was fun. So once again I took a chance and entered their Binders Recipe Book contest.

It's a bit different then the previous contests as it is limited to each person entering just one binder not each gallery. So I put the following together.

It works for me. I had fun designing it but take a look at my competition.

Can you feel the hunger pains in your stomach?

The above one could sit out anywhere. I thought it was really cool and it would be easy to find on my bookshelf. It of course can be customized with any name.

I love Italian!!!

I thought this was a very eloquent and nice gift for the holidays.

Sugar! Sugar! Sugar! Now that's what I'm talkin about!!!

The College CookBook Binder binder

Every college kid needs some type of cook book if for nothing else a place to keep take-out menus!

I love the humor and image on this one!

As of today there were 359 entries. It looks to me as though there is something to suit everyone. That is if you want a recipe binder.

As for me I need a binder for all those secret recipes that I won't share like my Rum Cake. That's a very big secret. I also want one that I can keep my take-out menus as for now they are all in a drawer and we have to take time to rifle through them to find where we want to order.

So that's just a small part of my competition. I can't wait to see who wins.

For now have a Firecrackin Great Day!

All of those entries look great.
I think yours looks very nice and I think it's quite unique. No one else has a barbecue one. :)
Good luck!
