Easter Giveaway: Give Me Candy























A Candy Coloured Giveaway



Hi Everyone.  Hope you are having a lovely Easter..  Just to sweeten the celebrations, I thought I'd give out the candy a day early ...   Yes the long awaited blog birthday giveaway is here... and as I had such lovely feedback on the candy colours in my Easter Show post [here] I decided candy colours would be the flavour of the day. The winner gets to choose from any of the three prints below.  
























Changing My View


As you can see in the top images,  I've been playing around with my favourite Palm Tree.  It's been a rainy day here in Sydney and set to last the week.. so if I can't change the view out my window, then I'll just create some new ones via photoshop.. I think they have a sort of Missoni Beach Towel Stripe thing going.. In an odd candy coloured Limony Snicket kind of way. All variations of my Palm Tree you see above.. That's the great thing about photoshop... it allows me to unleash my mind onto the unsuspecting public. haha [cue wicked laugh].. NOW. onto the giveaway...

I AM BACK! I want a chance at this! Oh Julie, thank you for visiting me, and for the use of your lovely work. I was trying to weave in so much last night into my post that I decided to use the moon instead....HA, isn't GEORGE THE LAD A CHEEKY FELLOW INDEED? I cannot BELIEVE how Jan gets him to SMILE! He visits pubs and tastes the froth off the pints! Oh, I just need silliness and fun in my life...VOILA!

As always, your work is exceptional and of great quality. THANK YOU FOR YOUR BIRTHDAY WISHES MY DEAR, and have a fantastic EASTER!!! Anita

Wow! I needed something to cheer me up on this RAINY Saturday. Is it raining everywhere today? I love your Full Missoni version -altered Palm Tree #4 - of Tropical Paradise! Wishing you a Happy Easter weekend.

Giulia said...

I love your attitude, my friend. It's raining here, too. As pretty as the rose is, I'm having an extended I-want-to-see-palm-trees whine. So that beauty at the top of the post beckons. Of course, I am a follower. And I'll let you know when I post about it...I have a bit of time.

theoldboathouse said...

Oh Julie, if i could change the world, we would run away together and leave our lives behind and be two gals sailing the seven seas and visiting far away glorious lands, we would wear scarves and big sunnies and call each other "doll". Yes its been one of those weeks, months years ha. Hope all is good your way. Can't believe you are having another give away...you are too generous, I love both images but confess, you guessed it the first is my fav.... Happy Easter lovely lovely Julie, your comments always always brighten my day xx Katherine

Hi Julie - I am a follower. Everything you do is eye candy. You are so talented and Photoshop is no easy program, at least to this dumbwit!

Dumbwit Tellher said...

Julie I put your contest button on my blog sidebar and did it with pride.

Cheers my dear!

Loree said...

I totally agree with you. After all, the world is not going to change for each one of us. today I promised myself that I live long enough to be very old, that I will focus on the beauty around me instead of complaining about the pain in my bones.

Loree said...

PS I guess you already know that I'm a faithful follower :)

ER said...

Hiya Miss Julie! i know i know, long time no see. I'm a bad blogger. But i'm catching up now. I love what you've been doing with the pix, oh photoshop sister! ;) i must get back to that myself. Right now, i'm a wee bit busy with one of your countrymen who's staying with me, his first trip to the land of his ancestors. Which begs the question: when are you coming over for a visit? huh? huh? ;) Lizzy x

mise said...

As ever, the prospect of owning a print of yours has me weak at the knees and clutching on to colourful curtains for support. The palm is my choice, and I'm flinging a lucky coin into an imaginary fountain as I type.

michelle said...

Hello dear Julie! What a wonderful giveaway! I always love your photos and the way you see the world! Please count me in! :)

michelle said...

I am a very happy follower!! Hugs to you!!!

Emom said...

What fun photoshop can be on a rainy day.....I am trying to learn aperture, and my old brain doesn't absorb as quickly as I'd like, but I see that you have the fabulous "P" mastered.....smiles.
