THEA Elements and Blueberri Beads Autumn Design Challenge... NOW CLOSED TO ENTRIES


I know it's still summer in theory but I'm already thinking about autumn (my favourite time of the year) and since it's been rather a long time since  I hosted anything on my blog I've decided that this would be the perfect theme for a design challenge. What's more, my friend Caroline of Blueberri Beads is of the same mind so we've joined forces to give you the chance to get some great beads at a bargain price and then show us what you can do with them...


Caroline has kindly contributed 20 sets of her lovely ceramic beads and I have added a couple of pieces of bronze to each one - all ready and waiting for someone to turn them into a beautiful autumn themed design. They will available at a cost of just £10 GBP (inc. shipping) per set to 20 lucky people who will be randomly selected from their comments on this post. If you win you will receive a surprise package containing one of the bead sets pictured here which can be used with beads from your own stash to create as many pieces as you like and then join us for a blog hop on Wednesday 2nd October.


So, do you fancy having a go...silly question - of course you do...! 

All you have to do to enter is comment on this post or on Caroline's blog post but please note - you must be willing to take part in the blog hop on Wednesday October 2nd. There are are lots of ways you can increase your chances of winning too... Do any of the following and leave an additional comment each time and you will get an extra entry for each one:

Don't forget to leave a separate comment for each method to maximise your chances though!

The draw will close at 8pm GMT on Monday 19th August 2013 and I will randomly select and announce the winners later in the day and send them my Paypal address. Payments should be made as quickly as possible to ensure beads are shipped in good time.


It's as simple as that so good luck and I'll see you back here on the 19th and hope you'll be with us on October 2nd.
