F&S AUG 3, 08

My apologies if there are errors. Mac woke up & I didnt have time to check through all.

Be warned - very very very long post ahead...

I was thinking to add in Challenges Info here as well if there's any interest (sometime in the near future when I'm far better organised :D) Interested? Not interested? There is one which I think is totally awesome & I want to highlight it in case some of you are not aware. If you love Shabby Pickle Designs, you definitely need to check out their challenge forum. For every challenge you join, you get 4 Pickle Phun Points (1 extra point if you use a SPD New Release kit). You can use any kit you want. Once you get 20 points, you receive a $5 GC. AND (my favourite part!) these points can be accummulated so you dont lose your past efforts! Most of the challenges are really easy to do too (& I really like that too cos I'm lazy & dont like challenging challenges :D) Easiest are the font challenge, the scraplift challenge & the photo challenge (just post a photo based on the assigned colour, you dont even need to do a LO, easy-peasy!). The slightly harder ones (but still very doable) would be the colour challenge, journaling challenge and the cucumber concotion where you're given a list of stuff to include in your LO. And the hardest one for me is pickle podge - hybrid challenges. If you love the kits at SPD, you really should check these out! Even a slow-coach like me managed to earn my first $5 GC :D

HIGHLIGHT:

1. DST is having their 2nd birthday party! Visit the forum for games & chances to win stuff

2. DAM is celebrating their 2nd anniversary in Sept in through Aug, they will have lots of stuff going on.


3. Gotta Pixel Dream Kit Round Two - Colours. Help Stacy Carlson, Paula Yagisawa, Sara Ellis, Acmdesignz, Jen Maceyunas & Beth Kern design your dream kit. In Round 1, the theme Fantasy was chosen and now the colours. Everyone who posts suggestions during the kit creation will get the kit free.
