  2. Love it! I was confused about one of your rules. In order to be eligible to win, are we supposed to have the blog badge in our sidebar? "(Display the main blog badge in your sidebar (that's the one at the top of the right sidebar) to promote Paper Dragonfly Creative Challenges, just right click on the badge and save it.)" I wish you all the best, and hope to play frequently, as I love dragonflies! hugs, de
