On the Twelfth Month of Christmas

Hi, everyone! Welcome to the twelfth and final "12 Months of Christmas" challenge giveaway! It's been a fun year of challenges and prizes to celebrate my YouTube 100,000 video views milestone. We're at the end now, but you still have one more chance to win.

The prize for this month's challenge is a copy of my 2010 Christmas DVD + Manual!

The challenge this month is simply to celebrate December ~ whether you make a holiday layout, a wintery layouts or simply a layout about a family tradition you enjoy each year around this time.

To participate, create a layout or project on the December theme. Your layout may be any size {12"x12", 8.5"x11", 8"x8", 6"x12", 6"x6", etc.} and can be either a one-page or two-page layout. To be considered "complete" layouts need to have photos and journaling & basically be ready to go into an album. This challenge also lends itself to cards, tags, home decor and many other projects.

You can submit up to three different links as long as 1) all the projects are new, created just for this challenge 2) the projects are substantially different from each other, 3) at least one of them must be a layout, complete with photos and journaling AND 4) each project must be linked separately ~ you can't combine them all in one link. Because of how the winners are selected, your name will need to appear on the list once for each project.

Enter the challenge by posting a link to your submission BELOW using the InLinkz gadget following my signature. Links left in the comments will not be eligible to win ~ you must use InLinkz to enter. Entries must be posted by 11:59 p.m. on Friday, December 10, 2010. The link can be to a photo of your entry in an online gallery, or to a video on YouTube or to a post on your personal blog ~ wherever! I will post the winner first thing Saturday morning. The winner will have until 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, December 16th to claim the prize before it will be forfeited.

Winners will be selected by the random number generator, Entries will not be judged. Have fun creating with the challenge & I look forward to seeing what you make!
