March 2017 Crafty Photo A Day Challenge

We're playing with colours in this month's edition of #GGKCraftyPAD! AND we have a special Edinburgh Yarn Festival collaboration on 10-March and 11-March. Here comes the prompts list for March 2017 Geeky Girls Knit Crafty Photo A Day Challenge.



--------------------------------------

Edinburgh Yarn Festival -

So, how do you participate???? Simply take a "fun" photo and post it to Instagram with the hashtags #GGKEYFfun #GGKCraftyPAD and #EYF2017. By adding the hashtags, others who are participating will be able to see the pictures that have been shared for the prompt. C.C. is on Instagram as cc_almon & Dami is on Instagram as damisdoodles so make sure to follow them if you haven't already.

PRIZES - So what about the prizes? We will utilise a random number generator to select winners who have posted on Instagram a picture that matches the theme and who have tagged the picture with the tags #GGKEYFfun #GGKCraftyPAD and #EYF2017. If your photo is selected, C.C. will comment on your photo asking you to contact her via Ravelry so she can get your prize to you.

We'll be in the Podcast Lounge as well as in the JavaPurl Designs booth (Booth number G9), so come by and say hi! Can't wait to see your photos!

So, how can you participate???? Well, there are actually several ways:
INSTAGRAM - Instagram is the primary arena for participating in this challenge. Simply take your photo, add a caption to it, tag it with the hashtag #GGKCraftyPAD and share it.

How will you remember what the daily prompts are???? Again, there are several ways:
~Save the image above to your phone or your computer and check it daily. Maybe even make it your wallpaper.
~Bookmark this post in your web browser and come back daily for the next prompt.
~Save this monthly Google Calendar as a bookmark in your web browser or even add the Google Calendar to your own Google Calendars.
~Follow us on Instagram as cc_almon, on Instagram as damisdoodles and/or on Twitter as cc_almon and on Twitter as damisdoodles as we'll be posting the prompt for that day at some point during the day.

Most of all, we just want to encourage you to be creative. We hope this is as fun for yall as it is for us!!! Can't wait to see your photos!

And don't forget, each week, we will choose our 5 favourite photos from Instagram and they will be shared in the podcast and show notes for the podcast following that prompt. There are so many great photos and we can't pick all of them, but we love looking at everyone's!

Until next time,
Happy Knitting!
