Well ladies here we are, the last week of september and you are all welcome to come on over to the playalong, no stress just fun and just to make it more fun, the winner will receive a coupon to buy my CU store. that's everything in my CU store, apart from collabs and studio grab bags.

so, onwards and upwards ladies, get your inspiration wings on and fly.....

this week you are going to be doing the same as the Finals contestants, you will have an extra day since I am a day late posting this.

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:

Use the photo to inspire your kit. Remember the running base theme is the moon. Please include:
- 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 Gallery due September 28, 2012 by 23:59 EST.
- Include your download links with your preview in the gallery only.
- Links must be available until September 31st, 2012. It is appreciated if they are available until October 1, 2012.
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 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.

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!
And Have Fun :)

Wonderful opportunity to continue on. I'm hoping I have time to create one last kit and this time make sure all my elements are at the right resolution ... GOOD luck to all!!!

I don't know about you all, but I downloaded photo after photo, made palette after palette, thought of theme after theme, then started two or three different kits, before finally deciding on what I wanted to do. :O Crazy, huh? And I'm just playing along to play along.

09-24-2012, 04:02 PM
I finally have a photo, a theme, a palette, and have started working. Yay!

Yay, glad to see more of you are going to play along ;)
Linda sometimes it takes a few palettes to get your mojo flowing then you are off and flying ;) good luck with it! I can't wait to see them ladies

09-24-2012, 11:21 PM
Yes.. I checked out many photos too! It is a hard choice! :) I just need to start! lol! (I am allowed to play along aren't I?) :)

A little romance, anyone? After discarding a few themes, I settled on honeymoon. That meant romance and hearts and flowers. One of Captain Kimo's photos had just the right colors. So, mine is done, and uploaded (and I followed the rules this time, too :DD). I've had fun playing along this year without the stress of being in a contest. Thanks for letting me play.


Now I'm off the play the last week of Digidetective which I've found I really enjoy.

09-25-2012, 04:20 PM

09-25-2012, 05:46 PM
Wow Linda! That looks fantastic!

09-25-2012, 07:03 PM

Whew! Finally got mine done - but I have to say it is my favorite of the 4 kits that I did for the contest! Thanks so much for this wonderful learning opportunity!

Just out of curiousity....when will we know the results of the Round 3 play-a-long contest?

09-28-2012, 04:47 AM
I'm still going... I will get there! (hopefully!) The kits in the gallery are looking amazing! :)

09-28-2012, 11:17 AM
Oky dokey.. I made it! It's 2.16am so I will be back after some sleep to have a much better wander through the galleries! :)


09-28-2012, 05:12 PM
Finally finished mine ... I couldn't quit "creating" and finally had to walk away from the computer. I definitely feel this is my #1 favorite out of the 4 I created.

The thought at having a chance at winning Tracy's entire CU store was incentive enough for me ... ;)

I'd like to know that also ... but I imagine it won't be until tomorrow since it was at 1:18 am today that Tracy downloaded the kits (according to her post).

10-01-2012, 09:16 AM
So now I'm real curious as to what is up ... Anybody know or willing to hazard a guess? I would have thought winners would have been posted this morning (description said September 31st). The suspense is starting to get to me. ;)

10-01-2012, 01:56 PM
Jill, I think Tracy must have a lot going on. There was a gap for the week we had a 3 way tie. I guess just keep checking... :)
