How'd you like to earn at least $200 in free SAS-y merchandise? Here's a contest that doesn't take any skill to win. All you need to do is post. Make up a game, participate in the challenges, leave constructive comments to our Design Challenge participants. You can post here in the forum, or you can post comments in the gallery. Both count towards your post count.

The winner is the person who posts the most from September 1 through September 30th (the day will end at midnight Central time). The grand prize will consist of $10 from each SAS designer and your choice of 4 SAS mega kits. Depending on who joins the team between now and then, you're guaranteed at least $200 in prizes.

No one will go away empty handed in this contest either. Everyone who signs up to participate will receive a prize.

You must sign up in either this thread or the one on the General Board (http://www.stoneaccentsstudio.com/forum/showthread.php?t=2926) (you don't have to sign up on both threads) in order to receive the prize that everyone gets.

All current post counts as of August 31 will be captured for all members, so you can start after September 1st. You'll have some catching up to do, but if you're chatty enough, you do it!

Oh thank you for your kind words .For awhile I felt anger & despondence that something like this can happen - to see my mom in this degenerate stage. That she is still here but not.But acceptance has settled in now. I just give her big hugs & thank her for being such a good mom & tell her if she wants to go home to her mom & dad it is alright.

I've had problems with my internet so I hardly posted at all last week. I have a goal for the month... but after this week I don't think I'll make it! I was well on my way toward it... not now though. I had to have Janalyn upload my lo for lo design this week... I couldn't even post it. Thank goodness the judges liked it so I didn't have to try to upload it again! I've never had problems uploading lo's here... until this week!

I've been having problems with my internet, too! And, it's not just at SAS... it's everywhere online! I've also been hearing of internet issues from several people... I wonder if it had anything to do with the Hurricanes?!! I'm in New England (MA), East Coast, so I wasn't sure if that could be the cause or not!

Hurricanes could maybe have something to do with it... since the net is routed so weird and all over the world. I know I don't have to worry about any hurricanes getting to Montana anytime this lifetime though! Blizzards, eathquakes and volcanoes... but not hurricanes!

This weeks challenge for LO Design is white space... not my strong suit! I saw so many lovely white space lo's... they gave me ideas on how to do a lovely white space lo. I made my first white space lo and others even thought it looked good. Wether I win any challenges or not this month I have already won... I make better lo's... that's winning in my book!

Man I am so far behind now, I'll never catch up again.

Due to no power/INTERNET for 2 very long weeks after Hurricane Ike, I cannot play anymore, well not as much as I did the first part of the month. I would like to echo those that have said how much it has helped to really look at the different layouts while posting comments.

I have seen some really pretty layouts, some done by friends and some by posters I had never seen before. I think this has been a very nice venture for all of us, the layout creators get some show of appreciation and the rest of us get to see so many different styles of creating layouts.

I wanted to have 3000 posts by the end of the month... that was my goal. Only a little under 1000 shy! Oh well... maybe after a break of 6 months or so I might make it. At the begining of this month I was doing so good I was averaging 100 post a day... then net problems, life and burnout set in... I was really pushing myself the last few days trying to get 2000 posts in... but I finally got to 2000... woooohoooo! If you do this next year I will deffinately be in it again! It's been fun! I saw so many cool lo's! Such talented people around here!!! I really enjoyed seeing lo's that didn't have any comments and I was the first to post to them. I know I enjoy reading comments and have a few lo's I thought nobody liked... but going through the galleries I found that it's not that people don't like them... it's that people haven't seen them! I saw lo's that were absolutely fantastic and they didn't have any comments.

SAS's b-day bash has been so much fun! I got so much free stuff this month! I had to move downloads from SAS only from my laptop to my big puter 4 times (at 6gb a time) this month! I usually move things every other week and maybe have a couple or 3 gigs to move... and that's from many sites... good thing you don't do this everyday or I'd have to get a couple of exterior hard drives for my big puter... and it's huge aready! Totally terrific SAS-y B-day! I've been to a few b-day parties on the net now and SAS by far outshined them all! Great job ladies!!!:D

Ah but internet issues and Life Happens Issues & signing up to CT Drew me away. Hey I agree with ya all that looking through the Gallery gives you ideas and posting nice notes to LOs that in any way inspire you is just a nice thing to do. After all if I get a couple of nice comments on my LOs it inspires me to make pg 2 (I paper scrap in 2 pagers) to that LO.

So Big Thanks To All The Posters!!!!

But I'll tell you what, I have met some of the nicest people in the world!!

Hey there!! I am fairly certain that you have won. I was looking at all of the posters "stats" last night, and depending on what your post count was at the beg. of sept, I believe you had to have won. I started the month with maybe one or two posts.... I realized yesterday there was NO way I could catch up to you! If you are in fact the winner, congratulations. nice job!!!

Girl, I was doing the same thing!! However, just know, based on the top posters, you have to be the winner, UNLESS you started out the month of sept w/ a lot of posts. I know that I basically had NONE...well maybe a handful. If you posted the majority of your posts in Sept, you hands-down would have to be the winner. I base this on the last newsletter, and then the top 5 from the last... It will soooooooooooooooooo be like a huge xmas!! I wish you so much luck!!!

The only reason I tried my best was because I am so new, I don't have a lot of digiscrap stuff AND I lost my job last month....very unexpectedly and I was devastated. Sooooo.... I figured if I could win anything at all, it would make things a bit better! LOL!.....

I wouldn't stress too much, ALLWRIGHT1 you have a ton of posts and you've been on top of the leader board throughout. Soooo.... I am crossing my fingers for you because if you posted that many posts you are so deserving!

It was really fun and some days my fingers would hurt from typing so much!! And now, I am addicted, I keep posting!!!! LOL!:D

Thank you ladies for all the sweet things you've had to say! I kinda thought I had it... but I wasn't sure. I so wanted to say I WON! after I saw it in the newsletter... but I figured I better wait until others had seen it... and I didn't want to sound too obnoxious!

Candi, I am so sorry for your losses this last month. I am so glad SAS was a good distraction for you. I have found SAS to be a fun place with lots of very nice people.

Hi there, thank you sooo much. I appreciate your kind words! I really, really love it here and feel like I have found a new home away from home.
Thanks to all of you wonderful ladies!!

Now that the "post the most" contest is over, perhaps I'll actually get some layouts completed and posted!!!! Perhaps I'll even join one of the challenges this months!!! We'll see about that....not sure.... still having issues "resizing" by huge photos onto a layout. I know there must be some easy way to fix this issue....haven't found it yet. My photos are very large in size because I wanted the best quality for printing.... I'll figure it all out. However, if someone might now of a link to a tutorial on resizing photos to a particular size (without losing quality) that'd be awesome. I am a bit challenged when it comes to some of this stuff....:eek:
