The “FALL” Challenge


Whoo-hoo….it’s time to link up your projects for our “FALL” challenge!

Come strut your stuff and show off those fabulous projects to our guest judge, Amy from The Idea Room!


{Just in case you haven’t seen the guidelines…… here they are}

Reminder of the CSI Guidelines

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 5 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!

CSI #1 project thecsiproject.com

Amy will go through each project and find her personal #1 favorite, plus her Top 10.

Visit thecsiproject.com

Jen, Beckie, and Amanda will also choose their favorite projects and award those people with a special button to display on their blogs.

Our giveaway sponsor this week, West Mountain Retreat, is going to give the first person to link up and send Beckie an email at tnbfarrant@yahoo.com an hour massage for the weekend.  That obviously means that you have to book a weekend retreat as well.  So if this is something that sounds perfect to you then you can get a free massage during your weekend too.I don’t know about you, but that sounds like absolute heaven to me! 

The challenge will be open until Thursday at noon (EST). Be sure and stop by Thursday for the introduction of next week’s theme and some inspiration to get you started.
