Yes, not that many seem to realise, but i was the Grand prize winner for the Bout of Books Readathon 4.0, this was back in May. Rather than copy out all the posts that i made on my blog, i am going to link them. When i realised that i had won- i did an 'OMG I WON' post because i was so excited and shocked! My prize was to be designed and sent to me by the lovely Shirley @ Creative Deeds Reads- she is experienced in the world of graphic design. She was absolutely lovely, really friendly and we worked together to come up with the final design for my bookmark. She did a post after i received my bookmarks, they took a while but i didn't mind as it was coming from the US, and shipping took longer than the design LOL! She was kind enough to design me- my blog header, a twitter button and my ladybirds (a ladybird in a heart design-how cute!!) I blogged about the new twitter button i had a while ago- i was happy and excited lol.
Here is these designs;
So, the final design for the bookmark is below- i love it
I was given the choice of how many bookmarks i would like and it ranged from 100- 500 (i think, maybe more! so i chose a sensible number and i picked 250, which is plenty. Here they are in the box, and this is how they were when i received them but i have included the twitter pic i posted to show a glimpse of the bookmark and that i had received it =D .
Now, I was delayed in making a post about this, my apologises but i then decided to wait until the Bout of Books 5.0 to show people doing this readathon how fantastically awesome the grand prize is!!
So, enter enter enter, as i love my bookmarks!
But as a little giveaway (as such), anyone who would like a bookmark- i will send a couple, in a card with a little note :) I am willing to send them international too!
