COLLAGE, CREATIVITY AND CRINOLINES

Greetings, dear readers! I am writing to invite you to my first ever VIRTUAL GALA!


I am hosting a "Bloggers Ball" which is a virtual "soiree" for EVERYONE in Blogdom! There will be decorations, refreshments, photos, a virtual "wild n crazy" crowd, and (REAL not virtual) FABulous prizes!

DING! DING! DING! THIS JUST ADDED: THE BLOGGERS BALL WILL HAVE A "PARLOR" (CHAT ROOM) SO THAT YOU MAY HAVE AN AUDIENCE WITH THE QUEEN! All you need to do is log on to my blog, and voila! The chat room will be right here! ALSO, WE WILL BE "WAXING ELOQUENT" AS WE WRITE "BACK STORIES" FOR OUR BEAUTIFUL BALLROOM BELLES! (I'll post an example of a back story in my next post or two)

The admission fee is one scrapalicious frock that you assemble out of paper, fabric, and/or other found objects. Here are a few examples to give you some ideas:










There are a few loose "Rules of Engagement" for those of you who have never attended a Bloggers Virtual Event:
  • Photos of said Scraplicious Frocks must be submitted during the Scrappers Ball...between 6 pm and midnight Central Standard Time in order to be eligible for the Grand Prize Drawing
  • Said Frock must be no larger than 5 inches wide and 7 inches tall. (Even plus size gowns should fit within these parameters!)
  • Ballgowns should include at least SOME paper elements.
  • It would be cool if your gown reflects your personal taste and style.
  • You can display your ballgown on a model, hanger, mannequin or frame.
  • Gowns will be on display at "The Palace" and will become part of the Palace's "permanent collection."
Please comment and let me know what "party music" you'd like to hear that evening as well as any refreshments you would like to see on the Refreshment Buffet! (Amazing Ice Sculpture already taken care of!)

I am so excited about hosting this event...the Palace is an absolute shambles...I must call in my team of Merry Maids to make the Palace spic and span and party worthy! By the way, I have hired a wonderful court jester for the evening...you'll love her. She's kept the folks here at Paula's Palace of AltAred Art in stitches (nyuk nyuk) for YEARS!

That's all for now...stay tuned for exciting details about color schemes and romantic themes, Grand Prize and Door Prize fodder, as well as refreshment recipes!

More soon!
