Fun Friday: Game With Lots Of Prizes!

176 posts in this topic

It's August. It's Friday. What do you say we have a little fun?

 

On July 18th, I smashed up my cute, little, yellow Mini Cooper while backing out of the driveway. The car is almost fixed now, but I won't be repaired for some time. (I have a lingering concussion.)

 

After a couple of weeks of sitting around the house, I'm getting pretty bored and wish I could do something strange and unusual this weekend. But since I have to stay fairly quiet, I'm in a jam.

 

This morning, I started to think about my problem again. How could I have fun without making my concussion worse?

 

I thought and thought and thought and thought about it. And then - after I had thought some more - I got an idea: "Why don't I start game on the Scrap Girls messageboard", I thought, "and let people do something strange and unusual to me?"

 

We're going to have FOUR (4) winners this time. All of the four winners will receive a $20 gift certificate to the Scrap Girls Boutique! Everyone who plays will receive a $2.00 gift certificate to the Scrap Girls Boutique!

 

1. Random drawing winner from all entries

2. Most original

3. Funniest

4. Best overall

 

Here are the rules:

 

1. Enter before midnight, Monday, August 9th (Mountain Daylight Time)

 

2. One entry per person.

C. Save it to your computer.

D. Hit your browser's back button to return to this post.)

 

4. Do something strange and unusual to the photo. (Scrap it, alter it, paste it, fry it, boil it, float it, burn it, drive it, fly it, drop it, eat it...) The only limit is your imagination. (Keep the results G-rated - appropriate for all audiences.)

Sounds like a fun game, Ro, but I am not sure I can make you look weird or funny or change your beautiful face - but i will give it a try - just know that whatever I do is not what I really see.

I must be blind!! All I see are the regular ones that I know have been here. They are the Emoticons, Insert Link, Insert Image, Insert email address, Insert quotation, insert code snippet, insert Media. Where am I missing it?! Does it have a little pic beside it I may recognize?

It sounds like a fun challenge Ro and what a sense of humour you have to do something like this. This is one challenge that I don't want to miss out on! Thank you! :-)
