You can print the starter page if you are using a physical medium or you can use the starter page as your background if you're using a digital medium.

🌎 THE OBVIOUS STUFF Please keep all entries appropriate to Earth Day and uplifting in the spirit of the celebration. Inappropriate entries (as deemed by me and my team) will not be considered and will not appear on my website. Beau the frog is my own, original character and he is trademarked - no distribution and my signature must remain on the starter page. This year includes Busy, also a trademarked original character.
