So in summary, if you would like for your contest to be featured by me Amarantheans send me a note.  So get your contest journal to me in a note or in the folder. Just make sure you put it in the correct month.

Bullet; Pink Oh btw, sometimes I get notifications of contests that have started after my initial posting of my journal. So, go ahead give it a favorite and check back after a week or so to see if any have been added.
