2016 Valentine Promo Winner
Marilyn Loveall of Tulsa, OK, won our 2016 Valentine Promo Contest. Here is what she says about her entry:
A few weeks ago I learned of a contest being held by the Art Smart Challenge. I had entered once before and thought I’d try it again. The theme we were to follow was Valentine’s Day. I thought of hearts and flowers, angels and cupids, but something else kept shoving those ideas aside. All I could see was a simple box of Cracker Jacks. That’s right, the red, white and blue box with the little sailor boy standing at one side. Years ago I began seeing a gentleman. We met on a blind date arranged by a mutual friend. Over time we became close friends and finally sweethearts. Then that special Valentine’s Day came. After dinner we sat down for a quiet evening of TV and he brought out two boxes of Cracker Jacks and handed me one. We sat there enjoying the sweet little crunchies. Soon he asked what prize I had found at the bottom of the box. I told him I was still eating mine. “Hurry up,” he said. I wondered what the big hurry was, but I soon found out. At the bottom, wrapped in plastic wrap, was a fantastic diamond ring! I was stunned. He had carefully opened the box and slipped the ring in. It was the loveliest thing I had ever been given. So when the contest called for a design representing Valentine’s Day, I had no better idea than that box with the ring and the love it represented. And yes, I won with my design. Thank you, Art Smart Challenge. It’s been a great experience!
