9th Birthday Celebration--Puzzle #1

Hello everyone! Earlier today we embarked on our month long birthday celebration by launching our regular monthly challenge. There are multiple prizes available this month (the total number will depend on the number of entries we get) so click HERE or scroll back one post to check out all the details for our current challenge.

Right now, I was wondering if you would like to set about on a little activity with us here at Scribble Designs. Up for some amusement and the opportunity to earn some goodies along the way? Well if your answer is 'YES', then keep reading…

It has been an incredible nine years and what better way to celebrate than to have a little fun. That is why each Monday and Thursday, from August 15th to September 12th, you will have the opportunity to assemble a digital puzzle. Intrigued?! Read on for more details…
A total of NINE projects from our team--one puzzle for each year Scribbles Designs has been in business--will be transformed into a puzzle and YOU will have to assemble the puzzle and submit a picture of it via email (more details on that to follow) in order to have a chance to win the image used in each of the puzzles. 


There will be a random draw from all the screen shots submitted for EACH completed puzzle. Winners will receive a copy of the main mandala/zentangle image used in each puzzle. That means there will a total of nine prizes available--one for each puzzle!
Additionally, at the end of the ninth competition, I will submit the names of those people who completed the puzzle with the fastest time for each puzzle round, and choose an additional winner to win a special prize! 

How To Play:

  1. At the bottom of this page you will find today's puzzle.
  2. You do have the option of changing the colour background if you want, by clicking the little colour palette icon (showcased in the bar in the centre of the screen before you start).  
  3. I have disabled the option of changing the number of puzzle pieces in order to make it fair for everyone participating. 
  4. You can rotate the puzzle pieces (circular arrow icon) but I wouldn't recommend it because it will change all the pieces and will change the orientation of the picture. 
  5. Click 'OK' to start the puzzle. Click on the full screen icon (next to the question mark in the upper right corner) to make your puzzle bigger. Click Esc on your keyboard to bring it back to regular size.
  6. If you need help with the puzzle instructions, click the question mark (?) in the upper right corner at any time. You will know the puzzle has been completed properly when your timer stops and you see applause at the bottom of the screen, and then the credit line will appear.
  7. You should be able to complete each puzzle in approx. 10 to 15 minutes (possibly less, possibly more, depending on your own unique speed). If you need to pause the puzzle for any reason, simply click the timer up in the right hand corner (to the left of the full screen mode button). A white pop up window will come up and the puzzle itself will be blacked out to prevent cheating while in pause mode. Then, click 'resume' to continue when you are ready.
  8. If you need a hint for today's puzzle, be sure to head on over to NICK's blog to locate her post for the Scribbles Designs 9th Birthday Celebration. You can find her blog HERE. Update: the permalink of her post is HERE.
  9. Once you have completed the puzzle correctly, take a screen shot of it using the print screen feature of your keyboard OR using the Snipping Tool under Windows Accessories or the Snip & Sketch app listed under 'S' in the apps list (tools will probably depend on which version of Windows you have--I have Windows 10). Sorry, I'm not sure what tools are available if you are using an Apple product or your phone or tablet, though most phones and tablets have some sort of screen capture tool. I suppose if it comes to it, you could always snap a pic of your computer screen with your phone or tablet. I tried doing that myself with my tablet and the picture turned out fine. IMPORTANT: If you want a chance to win the bonus prize available, make sure that your picture encompasses the full puzzle, including the timer at the top. Please refer to Instructions and Deadline for Sending Completed Puzzle image, found below.
  10. If you have any problems or questions, leave a comment and I will try and help you out when I get on-line for the day.

Instructions and Deadline for

Sending Completed Puzzle Image…

Please send a message to Lisa at decossesdynamitedoodles [at] yahoo [dot] ca (don't forget to replace 'at' and 'dot' with the appropriate symbols), with the subject heading, "SD Birthday 2022-Puzzle #1". Be sure to attach a copy of the image of your completed puzzle showing the time in which you finished it. Below is an example of what the image should encompass (though obviously it will have a different completed puzzle).

In order to qualify for the draw, all images for PUZZLE #1 must be received in my email account by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Daylight Savings Time, AUGUST 22, 2022. This gives you ONE WEEK to complete the puzzle. Once you have submitted your image by email, please leave a comment on this post letting us know. That way I will have an idea of who has participated, just in case there is a problem with my email account.

Before you go...

As mentioned above, new puzzles will be released each Monday and Thursday, from August 15th to September 12th at 6:00 p.m., PDT., so be sure to come back on Thursday, August 18th, for Puzzle #2.

Time to Play!

Here is your very first puzzle of the event. Have fun!


  1. Woot, woot! I did it! I've never done a digital puzzle before - t wasn't easy but I finally figured out what I was doing. Thanks for the fun birthday celebration - I'm looking forward to playing along in the party games! Happy 9th Birthday to Scribbles Designs!

    1. Congrats Kitty. I am happy to hear that you worked it all out and were able to play. I got your picture of the completed puzzle. Good luck with the future puzzles!

  2. I absolutely adore doing jigsaws on my ipad and find them very relaxing to do. Never seen anything like this on a blog challenge so I love the idea :)

    Happy 9th Birthday celebrations team. Hope you get lots of participants

    1. Thanks so much Mandy. Oh, I'm so glad that enjoy doing puzzles and that you like our idea. Hopefully more people will think so as well. I got your picture of the completed puzzle. Good luck with the future puzzles!

  3. This was so fun! Something I've never tried before.

  4. I had a lot of fun making a digital puzzle! Thank you, Lisa!!! I already sent you an email. Hugs from Greece.

  5. Okay. I know that I didn't meet the deadline on this challenge, but the B&W+red color scheme intrigued me. I beat my time on earlier puzzles... so yay! I'm going to try to play from now on. (Putting puzzles together is so much easier when older brothers aren't standing near calling you slow and stupid. I love them now... but barely tolerated them then!)


Thanks so much for stopping by. We'd love to hear what you think!
