Congratulations to all of you for making it to the final round! You've hung in there against some stiff competition and prevailed. Well done.

Now comes your most difficult round. This is where we choose our winner. This is where one of you wins the coveted Silhouette CAMEO (https://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_free_shipping_info&cPath=403&products_id=13957&zenid=72109a39a36d92959b11288840ad2ea3), and gets an offer to be a Studio Designer. This is where it really counts.

This round I want to see, as they say in the cooking competitions, you on a plate. This kit should be everything you are as a Designer. There are minimal rules here, I really want to see YOU and what you are capable of.

Please be very careful with quality, both with your own designs as well as purchased CU. More than any other round, in this round quality can & will cost you the win. Likewise be sure to properly credit in your TOU.

The Challenge:
In keeping with our running theme of the moon, and my love for Captain Kimo, choose one photo, any photo, from Captain Kimo's gallery (http://captainkimo.com/hdr-photography-gallery/) as your inspiration.

You will create your theme, your palette and your description from this photo.

The Rules:

<font face="Courier New"><font size="2">Use the photo to inspire your kit. Remember the running base theme is the moon. Please include:
<font color="#111111"><!--?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comhttp://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/forum/ /--><!--?xml:namespace prefix = o /--><o:p></o:p></font></font></font><p alt=</p>


- Your Palette
- A description, same as when you list your product in a store, sell your kit
- A link, in your description, to the photo in Captain Kimo's gallery (http://captainkimo.com/hdr-photography-gallery/) that inspired your kit
- There is no size limit
- Include a terms of use (TOU) within your zip file(s).
- The preview must be 600X600px, 72dpi, and a jpg file.
- The preview must include all papers, elements, kit name and your logo.
- Previews must be posted in the NDC Week 4 Entry (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/g1448-ndc-week-4-entry.html)Gallery due September 27, 2012 by 23:59 EST.
- Include your download links with your preview in the gallery only.
- Links must be available until September 29, 2012. It is appreciated if they are available until October 1, 2012. <o:p></o:p>

You may use commercial use/designer resource products in the creation of your kit. You may use more than one photo-editing/vector program to create your kit. You may use plug-ins.


Please do not break any copyright laws in this competition--you will be disqualified if you do. Do give credit, as required, to any Commercial Use products you use.

All previews must be posted in the NDC Week 4 Entry (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/g1448-ndc-week-4-entry.html) Gallery. Please post your download links there as well. You may use any outside host including 4shared/rapidshare/boxnet etc. You must use ZIP files only. Do not use RAR. You may blog all you like about the contest.


Voting will again be done privately by theStudio Design & Admin teams only.



- Round 4 kit will be due September 27, 2012 by 23:59 EST.
- Round 4 results will be posted September 29, 2012 by 6:00 am EST. <o:p></o:p>

I have worked hard to make these rules as clear and easy to understand as possible. However, if you have any questions please post here or PM me.



Good luck!

So, does our picture have to have the moon in it? or any picture is okay, but we have to draw the moon into it if it's not there?

Any picture is fine! Whatever draws you.

answer: Yes! Any Captain Kimo photo.

answer: gallery has been created: NDC Week 4 Entry (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/g1448-ndc-week-4-entry.html)

Personal moment, four years ago I was in your shoes. I thought I would keel over from stress, it was hard on me & my family. I completely & totally know what you are going through! I was really blessed with a fabulous husband who really supported me. Little did I know that six months later I'd wind up owning the site (it used to be Stone Accents Studio). Life is amazing and full of twists & turns.

He He He. I don't even have mine any more. I wouldn't even want to look at them. Ugh! Pixelitis and jaggie syndrome!

I had forgotten so many who were in the contest. Some I have worked with in other stores and some on CTMs, and some are no longer designing. I especially miss Mitsybelle.

One thing I am glad has changed. It's no longer a popularity contest. That part was really hard when you knew you were new and didn't have many people who would vote for you. The system is much more "fair and balanced" now.

I hear ya! One day (or week) I'll need to go and toss out a bunch of stuff because it was really bad back then.....even now there are still CU designers that have co clue about QC and even tho I'd LOVE to have their stuff based on their previews, I KNOW their quality is horrible! So sad.

Personal moment, four years ago I was in your shoes. I thought I would keel over from stress, it was hard on me & my family. I completely & totally know what you are going through! I was really blessed with a fabulous husband who really supported me. Little did I know that six months later I'd wind up owning the site (it used to be Stone Accents Studio). Life is amazing and full of twists & turns.


Wow, thatīs interesting to read!
I am new to this shop and forum and donīt know the old storys.
After the contest I have to take time to take a closer look to this old contest. Great to see who participated.

Wow Toiny do you really want them all knowing what we chatted about way back then!!! We were definitely drowning at the deep end of the pool that year. rofl.
Warning ladies - you may get lost in there and never find your way out again, we did a heck of a lot of chatting back in the 2008 contest LOL. Yes I was a contestant that year too, though I didn't get through, so was Tan aka Moon Designs and Monika Designs. Ahhh the memories, the stress, the sleepless nights....

@Susanne: Yes, there is a light at the end of the tunnel... I can see it. Could be - that if nothing unexpected happens, I will be done this evening and can upload tomorrow after work. If not done today, then in the early morning tomorrow. 8D
Good luck on the interview!

@Toiny - no matter what you try to pressure us - I won't upload before tomorrow, because I won't be done earlier *rofl*. Even if you tell people in the newsletter - YES, I read that *lol* :l

Try another way: right click on the photo and choose "show graphic" then you should get to the site where only this photo shows and you can copy the url

I know I can't get any image info via Safari so I have to go through Firefox. If you do that....right click and click on View Image Info and a box comes up with the image url and I think the location (I always just use it for the image)

Non-contest related question *gasp...is there such a thing*

Does anyone else have a problem with "losing" their brushes and/styles when shutting down CS5? It's a random thing but when it happens I have to reset all the preferences and reload what I need! UGH! Could it be a bug in the Mac version??? Any ideas Mac users?

But a thing which is sad: There are designers which are designers for many years and make really great kits - but you may not take a look at the 100% zoom of their items. *cruel*
