DIY Awesomeness with the DIY Club!

--The Suspense is OVER--
--The Secret is OUT--
--Now let the FUN & MAGIC begin--
Welcome and let me introduce you to   
The DIY Club!  
The DIY Club is a group of 5 bloggers:   

We will have a joint Linky BLOG HOP
on the 1st FRIDAY of EVERY MONTH, 
The 1st event will take place on MAY 7th.

so you will need to use at least
one of the products on the list.
You do not have to use all of them.
You can use more than one, if you would like, but you 

Additional Guidelines:
**You MUST take a picture of your project and have the products you used in the photograph. (DO NOT include products that are not on the list.)
**There will NOT be a monthly theme—example burlap or door wreaths.
**We will not ALL be using the same product each month.
**You can do any project that you want as long as you use one of the vendor products and take a picture of your project with the products.
**You can post as many projects as you would like but you want to post your best projects if you want to win.
**You only need to post (each of) your projects one time. You can post your projects on any of the 5 blogs and we will all see it. It is the same linked party, so there is no need to post to each blog.
**Since it is a BLOG HOP-grab the code (just under the linked pictures on the left) and post it to your blog to help pass the word and have more people see your project.
Grab our button too and post it on your side bar
{see my sidebar} 

Each month one lucky DIY MEMBER
(that would be all of you who post your projects) 
will win the entire gift package for that month.
The Gift Package will include products from EACH of the vendors
plus other special give-a-ways we have that month.
Be sure to follow all 5 blogs.

If you have a product you would like to offer contact

T H E  M A Y  E V E N T

You can post projects from 
May 7th - May 13th (11:59pm EST) 
On Sunday morning, May 16th 
we will post our TOP 10 list
and you can come over and vote for your favorites.

The TOP 10 will be able to grab the
“I’ve Been Featured by the DIY Club” 
button and post it on your side bar.
You can call family and friends asking them to come over and vote,
you can Twitter and Facebook about it, post it on your blog-
Don’t be shy - ASK people for their vote.

Voting will be from Sunday,
May 16th until Thursday, May 20th.

On May 21st
we will announce the
who received the most votes and announce the products for the next party. 
We are all looking forward to seeing all of your creative projects.

The vendors who have products being used in the linky contest/give-a-way will be participating for an entire year—some of the vendors may have a large list of products and so their products may rotate while others will have the same products every month. We hope the vendor list will continue to grow.
**You can use ANY  Gorilla Glue Product.
**You can use ANY size of DISChangers.
**You can use TEXTURE PRODUCTS and ELEGANT FINISHES from  DecoArt this month. You can order products online directly through DecoArt or they are available at most craft stores. These products are located on pgs 36 (Elegant Finishes) and pgs 40-43 (Textures) of their online catalog.

**We may be adding additional vendor products to the approved list through May 26th.**
