Impawtant Reminder!

Hello to my Blogville Furends:
This is a reminder about the Blogville Arts and Entertainment Self Pawtrait Challenge. The dead lion fur entries is just a few days away.

This self pawtrait of me didn't turn out so well!

Quite a few B-Ville residents have entered and the self pawtraits are grrreat.

Here are the rules fur this challenge:

Self Pawtrait Challenge Rules:

1.  The dead lion for submissions is February 15, 2017.  This is a firm dead lion!
2.  Entries will be published on February 25, 2017.
3.  Entries must be emailed to louisbloggingdog(at)gmail(dot)com.
 4. Self pawtraits can be created using any type of media, either digital or traditional.  If you use traditional materials, you can either phodograph or scan your work. 

5.  It is fine to start with a photo and use a photo editing program to create something interesting.

6. Please send your entry to me using jpeg format and include the URL to your blog.

Jakey, our director of Artistic Development has published a tutorial page on our A & E website to explain how to use the free photo editing program PIZAP. This tutorial is furry good so take a look at it. 

There is no requirement to do any photo editing. An interesting selfie would be pawfect. The idea is to create a gallery with as many Blogville residents as pawsible, so we can admire ourselves and each other!

Also, I want to be clear that you don't need to have any artistic skills or talent to pawticipate. This is not a contest of any kind. We just want to share our beautifur faces with the whole wide world because living in Blogville is fun!

Feel free to ask me any questions you may have about this. The contact form on my sidebar is working furry well fur this.

By the way, to change topic - check out my new badge that I got todat from Angel Sammy of One Spoiled Cat.
It shows that I am a member of Angel Sammy's Bacon Appreciation Club! Until Angel Sammy came into my life my peeps hid bacon from me. I never had it and Mimi pretended to me that it didn't exist. Well now I am not so innocent and I am looking fur bacon and trying to get it whenever I smell that heavenly smell! 

Thanks so Angel Sammy fur introducing me to a whole new world, the world of bacon!

  1. Oh Crikey Louis ..... We've been AWOL for a while and ever so busy. AND Mum's pretty lacking in this fancy photographic work but I'll try real hard to get her to send something off to you before the dead lion. I sure hope we make it in time. Those lions are scary things, aye?? Dead or alive ....

  2. Actually, we think your portrait turned out really good! We gotta get on this!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  3. Wow, another super idea for your department! I'm gonna pawticipate and can't wait to see all of the entries.

  4. Hopefully our second submission will work for you, Louis. ❤︎

  5. OK...time to get our Assistant to email ours over!!
    Dory, Jakey, Arty & Bilbo

  6. WHOA! That's kinda scary looking!
    Yours sincerely,
    Margaret Thatcher

  7. My boys aren't really the selfie type, but we're looking forward to creating a post for the endangered species post. We've already chosen an animal! I just need to read up on how to use Pizap. We're hoping to have it posted by next Monday.

  8. Momma finally remembered to send ours in yesterday!

  9. Oh I'm so happy to have another member of the Bacon Appreciation Club Louis....bacon is too delicious not to tell the world about - I hope you will be as wacky about it as I am!!!

    Love, Angel Sam
