Fruity Lashes Banner Design Contest and 400+ Follower Giveaway (NOW CLOSED)

Giveaway time! This time it’s a little different than my usual giveaways. I’m actually testing a new concept by having a contest and a giveaway going on at the same time. So basically winter’s slowly phasing out, so the site needs a new look. I’d like my blog readers to take part in the design so you guys will design and decide the banner for the site.

There will be two parts to the event. Banner Design Contest is for people who like to design a new banner for my site. If you decide not to show your creativity, you can still join the giveaway part. Though I’ll be sad.

Banner Design Contest Entries: (entries for contest is now CLOSED, please cast your vote by Mar 15)

    I am a graphics designer and this giveaway is just calling out to me! I don’t usually enter such giveaways but I did pass on buying the UD naked palette and I can’t deny its neutral beauty! So I am going to try and give this a go. If only I knew your favourite colour!?

    Thanks for this opportunity. Good luck all! x

    I’ve been meaning to ask what is the meaning of fruity lashes the name? How did it become your blog name? Congrats on 400!

    • admin January 24, 2011 at 6:05 PM

      great question Steph! it’s rather random lol. i love false lashes a lot so it became part of the blog name. then fruity just came out of nowhere that day.
