Accessories Challenge: Let's hit the books!

The theme for our 10th challenge is, "Let's Hit the Books!" Yes, (sadly) it's time to start thinking about back-to-school time again. You may make a boutique bow or bow set, a headband, a bowband, a funky loopy bow, a fascinator, a hair flower, or basket/tote-- basically, anything you've fashioned using a Birdsong pattern or tutorial -- following the theme of "back to school." The design must be made from a Birdsong tutorial or pattern. You can focus on making your accessory to match an apple theme, ABCs, numbers, rulers, school colors, crayons, books...anything that reminds you that it's time to hit the books!
There will be two prizes again. The first will be chosen by a judge to be revealed soon (not me)! The winner of this award will receive a $15 gift certificate generously donated by The Ribbon Retreat!
The second way to win a prize is through "Voter's Choice." I'll put all the submissions on the blog and will host a poll in the sidebar. Invite your friends and relatives to vote for your photo! The winner of the Voter's Choice Award will receive a FREE e-book from Birdsong Bows and Patterns.
To enter, E-mail your best photograph of your finished product (either on a model or not) to me at deanna [at] birdsongbows.com by 2:59 a.m Pacific time (11:59 p.m. Eastern) on Monday, Aug. 6 (so, basically before you go to bed Tuesday night). Please keep your photos around 600 pixels wide, so that they're neither too big nor too small. And remember: They must be recognizably made using at least one Birdsong tutorial or pattern. No more than one entry/photo per contestant, please. If you're on Flickr, feel free to post a photo to the Birdsong Flickr Photo Group as well, for all to see!
Good luck! I can't wait to see your entries! All entries will be posted on the blog by Wednesday, August 8 for voting.:)
