This contest is based on "Where's Waldo". Explanation of what a "Waldo" is (for those who aren't familiar with this children's comic) is at the end of the post.
Contest starts today and ends July 30th. First contestant with ALL of the CORRECT Waldo items wins the ADORABLE prize (shown). The prize was donated by Rosetree Creations. Visit her shop to see more great items by clicking on her badge (in the upper left-hand corner).
Winner will be announced and notified on July 31st. Once I've received their address; the prize will be mailed.
Good luck everyone!!!
Each shop has chosen, one of their items, to be "Waldo". "Waldo" fits the theme for the month. This month's theme is "Red, White, and Blue".
ANYONE with an internet connection can participate in the contest.
Contestants need to find each shop's "Waldo" item. Some shops might have multiple items that could fit the theme. Contestants will have to read each item's description until they find the one that has the phrase "You've Found Waldo" hidden within.
To make it a little easier for contestants, ALL "Waldos" are listed in the "featured gallery" of each shop.
Once contestants have found each shop's "Waldo", email me your list.
The first contestant with a COMPLETE and CORRECT list will be the winner.
NOTE: Guild members that participate, in the contest, can "play" but can't "win".
Here are the participating shops:
EXPLANATION OF WHAT A "WALDO" IS...
Waldo is a fictional, cartoon person that has a dozen or so books out (children's books). Waldo is, almost, always dressed the same and he's "hidden" in a picture filled with hundreds of other things.
Everything's drawn close together and they're extremely BUSY pictures. Children have to "find" Waldo. It's not easy sometimes because the artist tries to make Waldo "blend" in. It's basically a "seek and find" book.
That's the premise of the contest.
Each participating shop has chosen a "Waldo" item. Hidden within the description, of the item, is the phrase "you've found Waldo".
Contestants might have to peruse multiple items, in a shop's "featured" gallery, before they find "Waldo".
The theme for this month's contest is "Red, White, and Blue". So, the "Waldo" will be an item that falls under that theme.
