Ok … I might as well let you know right off the get go I am not submitting this bookcase even remotely thinking I have any chance of winning anything. I’m only looking to contribute an idea I came up with. not sure if I am following any rules or not…so you can let me know either way about that part.

New here, I have already seen so many wonderful projects that have great imagination and skill that as you guys and gals get cranked up into this contest the judges will really be hard pressed to decide which of many will be the right one to win. I wouldn’t want to be them. LOL

Anyway…Hope this idea might spark those imagination cells to start rolling out the designs. I went more toward basic with just enough flare to set the case off so there it might get a second look… (at more than just the books).Simple Bookcase

You should go ahead and enter the contest. As I have said before winning/losing is not the issue. Everyone who enters is a winner. And if you enter you get to cast a vote for the winner (at least that has been the format for the past contests.)

So go ahead and post an entry and join in the fun and excitement.

by the way… Not to look any more obviously dumb then I might already look…How do you submit an entry into the contest ? I looked around a little and haven’t seen the rules anywhere. Only knew about the contest through viewing another blog entry. Leave me the url or what ever if you think my bookcase is at all worth entering.

Just click EDIT for this blog then just add “Challange04” To your tags/keywords and it’s done.

Do it. What have you got to lose.

Good point, Debbie. When I posted I had not yet read Martin’s great video tutorial – a GREAT way to see HOW-TO!
