It's the Olympics on Tombow

This is a very busy post with lots of info, so read carefully for a chance at some prizes. Ü This is a Tombow and Our Craft Lounge combined post and separate prizes.

This week on Tombow the DT is creating their own Olympics and we invite you to come and play along with us. There are prizes to be won! Each day from today thru Friday each of the DT will highlight a certain Tombow product. We invite you to play along using that product.

You will have one week to post your project on the Tombow blog in the comment section of each DT's post that you play along with and winners will be announced Friday the 17th. You can play and enter each of our challenges for a chance to win up to 4 times! Remember my motto...."You can't win if you don't enter".
My product is Irojiten Rain Forest Volume 2 Vivid Tones colored pencils. NOTE: This is the middle set only that you are entering to win.Colorpencil Set of 30, Rainforest

These pencils are AWESOME! The lead is glued in to the wood covering, so no more breaking every time you sharpen them. Plus you can sharpen them any way you want, no special sharpener needed! I love them and love the colors they come in.

Since we don't have tv and obviously don't watch the Olympics, I had to do some research to see what events there are. I also found that the colors are red, yellow, blue, green and black. So I used those colors on my project AND used a sailboat stamp from Our Craft Lounge's Smooth Sailing stamp set.

The lid comes off and 4 rolls of Lifesavers are inside.

I created this Lifesaver Box using Cutting Cafe's template. The circle Lifesaver's represent the circle logo for Olympics and the sailboat represents the Sailing challenge at the Olympics. I also used Tombow's Power Bond Adhesive on the whole project.

This is also for the OCL/May Arts blog hop this week. I used May Arts 1.5" Black/White Twill Ribbon and cut it in half to tie around the box.

Our Craft Lounge has 5 prizes to give away from all the comments left on the DT's blogs, the OCL Blog and the OCL FB page from Monday thru Friday (midnight PT/3am ET).  Winners will be posted on the OCL blog on Monday, August 13th.
May Arts is giving away prizes too. Be sure to stop by their blog for more details.
