YOUR ASSIGNMENT


Please review the general notes and instructions in this THREAD (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/forum/showthread.php?t=9666) before you begin your assignment.

Use only this kit from Deli Scraps by Min, "Midnight"

http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/store/bmz_cache/6/6658a32d18726fda13b08540fda2e1ff.image.300x300.jpg (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=13_200&products_id=5879)

In this round, you must:

1. Create a SINGLE 12X12 LAYOUT using as much of the kit as you can to promote it beautifully, while still keeping your page, including shadows and layers, balanced and eye-catching.

2. Shadows should be consistent, all in the same direction and relative to the distance off the page that particular element would be if real.

3. Your layout should be resized to 600 x 600 pixels, 72 dpi, and no more than 120K before uploading to the gallery. Once you have uploaded your “official” entry for the week, you are not to edit it in any way once it's been placed in the gallery.

4. You must post a store link to the kit in your description, and you must credit the designer and kit, and provide the name of any fonts you use

5. Mention any changes you made besides adding shadows. So if you added a bevel or glow or cropped anything, you must say so in the description area when you post your page. Please use only the tools that come with your software.

6. Post your layout in the LOA 2011: Round 4 gallery (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/g1321-loa-2011-3a-round-4.html), and also the designer's gallery.

7. Post the Week 4 gallery url link from the address bar back here in this thread, and also the designer's gallery url link, so that we know you have posted in both places, and can go leave you some love.

IMPORTANT NOTES --

A. Remember that using templates, sketches and scraplifting is not permitted for this contest.

B. Please carefully review each item in the list of instructions to be sure that you have followed each one. Your beautiful page will have to be disqualified if the instructions are not followed. Be sure you check your descriptions, links, and posting in the thread.

If you have a legitimate problem getting your layout up on time, e.g. computer issue or internet connection problem, or a Studio-based upload problem, let us know and we may make an exception, otherwise all pages must be uploaded by the deadline.


POST DEADLINE : MIDNIGHT EST SUNDAY, September 25

POST YOUR LAYOUT IN THE LAYOUT ARTIST COMPETITION ROUND 4 GALLERY.

POLL FOR VOTING : will go up in a separate thread MONDAY, September 26. ALL STUDIO MEMBERS CAN VOTE IN THIS ROUND. Voting in the final round will only be open to Studio designers and admin.

POLLING CLOSES : Midnight EST on September 27. 8 - 10 will go on to the Final Round.

A new thread listing those who will be going on, and the final assignment, will be posted on September 29. ALL CONTESTANTS MOVING ON IN THE CONTEST WILL RECEIVE THE CODE FOR THE KIT BY PM MESSAGE.


GOOD LUCK LADIES :DD

I guess they must have added one. :confused: I thought it was the final round also. In fact I was just reviewing the General instructions (again). and it only lists 4 rounds there too.
Oh well it is just another week of stress :O
and an extra week of fun. :))

Anne, it did say 4 weeks -- but we had a problem -- a good problem!

We started this competition with 87 ladies !! We had actually expected around 60 or so, which would have made the weekly elimination much easier.

But we had so many that we couldn't just cut 1/4 or 1/3 -- so we did it more slowly. And believe it or not, it was the same last year, with 4 rounds and then the finals.

Thanks for the nice kit. Again, I'm going to be stretched!! Which is good, as I loved the last one I stretched for!! Good luck everybody!! Please don't take my "non-participation" this week in the gallery as "uninterested"!! Just know I'm having fun with the kids!

By looking through the contest gallery, I've just realised that my LO looks rather similar to that of Renee. All I can say is, my LO is definately not a scraplift, it was entirely my own idea and I'm extremely sorry it looks so much like Renee's. If you can't accept mine because of the similarities, please let me know - I'll make another one (although I'm rather fond of this one:))

I did NOT want to wait until the last minute again. So I am not going to agonize over this anymore. I decided to do more traditional since last week I went totally fantasy. Though I have started other pages in that style. Okay enough rambling. Here is my LO.

What a marvelous kit for this time of year. I apologize if this shows up twice. Right now, I can't tell. The layouts are awesome. Good luck to all, and thank you for letting me play.

Now why on earth would you scraplift me? There must be over a million pages on the web so it would be rather silly to pick mine then to scraplift. I believe you did your layout all by your own idea and the thought of scraplifting didn't even cross my mind till I read this. So no worries, but since I'm the one who is only playing along I would be more then happy to remove my page if that would make you feel better. Just let me know.

btw: I like your cat much better then mine and then one on my page isn't even my own cat, but I found it on the internet. 8D

Oh no, Jeannette, please don't remove your beautiful LO! That would be the last thing I want. Let's just put this similarity down to a case of "great minds thinking alike", eh? :) I just wait until the powers that be decide whether they accept my LO - if not I make another one, no problem. Thank you soo much for all your kind words about my LO! Your cat's a h.... of a lot more scary than mine, though!:)

Big hugs

Oh my, I went to upload my layout to the gallery and I was met by spiders, scary cats and more. You guys definitely have the spooky thing down! (I kept thinking how cool if we had audio and could hear haunted house type music in the background!).

I've been fretting about whether my layout is done or not. It's definitely a different style for me. I actually made sort of a scene without a picture of a whole kid! LOL.

anyway, here's "looking for treats"

Your layout is fine, Andrea. There are some similarities in many pages in creating borders, using the fencing and the house in the background.

All I can say is, my LO is definately not a scraplift, it was entirely my own idea and I'm extremely sorry it looks so much like Renee's.
