Mary will be  looking at all of your projects and picking her overall favorite and 10 that make the CSI cut. We can’t wait to see your Valentine Eats and Treats. You might even take home the coveted winners button.

Also, we have a giveaway this week. Mary is very talented and we are giving away {3} Valentine Subway Art from her Etsy Shop. You can visit her Etsy Shop by clicking on the button and enter the giveaway, here.

Happy Linking, my crafty friends!!!

So, let’s get on with the party!!!

Please remember that to be eligible to win this week’s challenge and giveaway, you must provide a link back to the challenge in your entry post. It’s easy–we have a button ready for you to insert into your post HERE. For additional challenge rules, please read below.

You’ll find the linkup for this week’s challenge at the end of this post, following the challenge rules. This challenge begins at 10 pm(MST) Wednesday, February 6th, and ends at noon (MST) Friday, February 8th .

1. All entries for this challenge need to incorporate the challenge’s theme. We are not simply a linky party. We have a specific theme for each week. All submissions are competing to be the judge’s top pick. If your project does not incorporate the theme we will have to remove it.

2. When you enter the challenge, please enter the link to the specific post on your blog that relates to the project — not to your general blog. This will help when a year from now, for example, someone who visits the site can find your project directly.

3. The CSI Project button must be in your blog post. HERE are the buttons. This makes it easy for other people to come over and join in the challenge if they like – and for us to know that we have the correct entry in the challenge when we’re judging. And if you use an older post, please update it so it’s current. If you don’t want to update it, please add the button to that post and to the sidebar for the week of the contest. Thanks!

4. The project you submit must be your own project and something you have made. (It can be inspired by something someone else has done, but it must be your creation.)

5. We ask that you are a CSI follower or subscriber to win the prizes. The more followers the site has — the more giveaways we are able to host

6. If you enter a project into our challenge, we ask that you please leave comments on at least 2 other entries in the contest. Not only is it nice to do, but it’s a great way to meet new people and make new friends.

7. By entering, you give us permission to spotlight your projects – we will give you credit and link back to your blog. You are welcome to enter as many themed projects as you like! You also give us permission to add your name to our newsletter list. If you wish to unsubscribe you may do so at any time.

Be sure to listen to the first CSI Project Podcast called CSI Confidential, here. You can listen every week as we interview our guest judges, sponsors and experts on the challenges.

The CSI Project have a new Facebook page. Go here to “like” us.

Also, go here to learn how you can be involved in Giraffe Grins, a CSI Project charity.

If you haven’t registered for the Forum yet, go here.

    I was skeptical at first on how I can earn money playing games|but I thought I have nothing to lose as they have a 60 days money back guarantee anyway. So after 24 hours of signing up I got my first Job. I just followed the instructions on the site and answered the questions that came with the game that was sent to me.
    Some of the questions where: What bugs did I encounter while playing the game? What level did the game slow down of freeze? I also filled up a survey and gave my opinions on how it can be a better game. After 7 days I got my first paycheck|and after just 2 months|I was able to buy my dream setup|a 50 inch plasma TV and a Bose 5.1 surround speakers!
