Dare #57 is one for the birds :O)

Hey there darers! Can you believe how fast this year is going? As of today there is just under 8 weeks till Christmas so someone told me...eeek! scary stuff, and speaking of scary, hope you are all having a fun Halloween. I know the NZ dares girls are busy with it, there has been talk amongst us of creepy cupcakes, ghostly cookies, pipecleaner spiders and costumes galore.
So are you in the mood to use your creativity to win an awesome prize? I hope so because I sure have a gorgeous prize for you for this dare. My wonderful friend Tamar, owner of the fabulous Tarisota Collections has generously donated not one but two of her beautiful kits as a prize to you if you are the winner. Both the November Inspiration and Addiction kits will be yours! What will be included? Well check out the pics and details below, you won't be disappointed. Tamar's kits are always a beautifully put together, eclectic mix of the most elegant elements and this one is especially beautiful with its glittery festive feel.

Inspiration Contents: 1 large blue crystal facet bead; 1 packet small blue crystal facet beads; Zva Creative Original Brads - Fresh Breeze; Zva Creative Symmetrical Swirls Coffee & Chocolate; Maya Rd Trinkets Metal Elements – Blossom x 6 assorted sizes; Maya Rd Trinket Pins - Clear Jewels; Maya Rd Banner Chipboard Album; Maya Rd Birds of a Feather Chipboard; 1 pale blue feather; 1 white feather.

The best news is that you don't have to do any too difficult to be in to win this fabulous prize. Tarisota's November kit, apart from having a predominantly festive theme, also features birds. Are you noticing that birds are everywhere in scrapping fashion at the moment? So we thought it might be fun to challenge you to use birds in your creations. Scrap something featuring birds, and send it to us by Wednesday 12th November and you will be in to win this generous prize.

Leave a link in the comments to your LO's on your blog, gallery, or you may use the Flickr group if you like, just leave a link in the comments on the NZ Dare blog. If necessary you can email your LO to Lianne at (no bigger than 100kb).

And you are still in with a chance even if you don't have any bird themed papers or products; I have a vintage digi bird sticker here that you are welcome to print out and use if you want. Just right click and save it to your desktop. You don't have to use it, any birds will do, but you are welcome to if you wish.So here is some inspiration to get you started...

From our wonderful guest designer Gracie Tan:

And from me:

Lovely Lianne's:

Delightful Donna's

And from our totally talented newbie Lara:

Sharon - I went with the vintage theme of Jo's sticker and scrapped an old photo of my grandmother and her brothers.

Not sure if this challenge is open for residents of the US but I'll give it a shot anyway just for the fun of it. Here's my take.

Does it have to have a bird image on it? Or can photos of birds on the l/o count?

Hi Ladies! Both the theme (sweet little bluebirds) and the award (Tarisota) Compelled me to put together a layout and take a chance on winning some fabulousness from down under. I added my photo to the NZ Flickr group:

Hope you like it!

Sorry we didn't get back to you Jenny, I think Jo's idea was to use bird themed products and papers rather than a photo of birds unless you were using maybe a cutout bird from a photo as an embellishment.
