...to my Treehouse, where I do a bit of sharing goodies with my readers, and a lot of showing off of my CT tags. It's my little nest in the busy world of psp.

Squirrely has been my nickname since I was a child, both because it rhymes with my real name, and because I'm forgetful and just plain nuts at times. I've been tagging for 2+ decades off and on, and now that I'm retired/disabled I'm pretty much on most of the time now.

I love to share what I make with you, and I LOVE it when you respond with love back for the shares. So have a look around, take what you like and enjoy yourself. Just watch for splinters.

Robins Egg Blue - FTU kit 4U

I wanted to have an opportunity to show off to you some of the tags I've made with different parts of the Here2Help charity collab kit for Mirella, which is available at Dees'Sign Depot HERE.
And I wanted to make it a little fun all around, and got to thinking that I haven't had a blog challenge (which I refer to as WIN!s) in ages, and so.....

.....let's combine the two, by first taking a look at one of the glorious kits
you'll find in the collab.  This tag below was created by my dear, dear friend 
Sylvie, of Sylly's Tutorials and Sylly Creationz fame lol.  This is her first
ever scrap kit, and as you can see it's incredibly beautiful and soft.  I'm 
ashamed that this is my first time playing with it because I've had it
for awhile, but I hope she forgives this very Squirrely lady.  I've also used one of
my masks from the collab here, and did colorize the masked layer to pull
the blue in the tube out.

In this 2nd tag from the collab, I've used one of the gorgeous tubes donated to our cause from Mariel of ScrapsNCompany (S&Co).  I've also used one of the gazillion clusters in the kit, and another mask of mine from it.  Let's all say a collective "Awwwww" now for sweetness.

Now let's get back to the WIN! I was talking about up top.
Each day for the rest of this week I'm going to give you a quarter of an 
exclusive scrap kit I made last Spring for a group I was in that's no longer around.
So you may already have it, double check your stash.

Robins Egg Blue

Every day you'll download a few pieces of the kit so by Friday you'll have the full kit.

Now the real fun begins...

From then through April 1st (at night) EST, I want you to make a tag with this kit, and ONLY this kit.
  1. Don't add anything to it.  
  2. You may colorize a few pieces if needed to match your tube if you'd like.
  3. You can use a template if desired  
  4. You MUST use one of my masks for your finished tag.
  5. When you save your tag, please include your name in the filename  you give it.
  6. Add your name (or a friends) to your finished tag, not mine.
  7. Please NO animation.  I'm a sucker for it and that wouldn't be fair to those who can't do it.
  8. I must have a minimum of 15 entries by April 1st or the contest is cancelled.  Tell your friends, spread the word on social media or any groups you're in.  Everyone gets my free kit, and a chance to win BIG and help Mirella with her medical bills at the same time.
  9. Email your finished tags to me at 1960.shirl@gmail.com by April 1st - late tags will be automatically disqualified
  10. In the subject line of your email to me, please write - Robin's Egg Blue Contest - so I don't delete it by accident.
On April 2nd, myself and the ladies from the H2H committee
(I haven't asked them to help me yet, but I think they will lol)
will choose a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winner!!
The winners will be announced HERE ON MY BLOG ONLY on April 3rd.

What you'll WIN!...

1st place............The Here2Help collab kit - a $20 value.
(if you already own the kit, then you'll win a $20 GC to Dees'Sign Depot
This sale of this kit will be donated to Mirella after Paypal costs)
2nd place.............4 Thalaris kits sold at Dees'Sign Depot
(The proceeds from this sale will also be donated to Mirella per Thalaris)
3rd place....................Any 1 kit sold at Dees'Sign Depot

So don't hesitate to buy the collab kit in the meantime if you want to, because you'll still get a nifty prize if you win 1st place, ok??  I haven't decided what it will be yet, but I'll let Random.org chose
someone that didn't win one of these prizes and that person will get a prize as well.
So EVERYONE has a chance to win something.

If you have any questions, leave them in the comments with your "thank you Squirrely's" but be sure to add your email addy so I can answer you!!!!

But MOST of all, have fun for goodness sake.
You can download the 1st part of "Robins Egg Blue" HERE
