Re: Play Along Contest
What a nice idea and such a gorgeous offer!

Even without the brilliant chance of winning it is a lovely consolation prize, we're allowed to try again.
I was so happy about all the nice comments about my small Constest-Contribution in round 1, soooo amazed how often my Mini has been downloaded. Just a wonderful thank you!

So I say also: thank you so much!

Re: Play Along Contest
Can anyone enter, or just the eliminated designer? I thought it was open to all??

Linda Renee 09-09-2012 09:41 AM

Re: Play Along Contest
Like Sally, I'd like to play along, but just for fun, not for a prize. There is no gallery for those who just want to play along for the fun of it, except the one for store designers. If I play along, what gallery should I post in?

Ambowife Designs 09-09-2012 11:28 PM

Re: Play Along Contest
This is officially open to anyone, even if you missed the contest, I'm all about the fun of the challenge ;)
no stress!! Just Fun, with a prize for the winner :)
so feel free to post your mini in the gallery I listed above it's fine Sally and Linda ;)

Pop it on the preview then it's visible in the gallery too :)
or feel free to add it to your folder with your preview and tou :) as long as it's somewhere and also let us know what photo you used :)

Re: Play Along Contest
Thank you so much dear Tracy.
I read: "You must use the inspiration photo to create your palette .", and so I took it. But you are right: I had to write that in my TOUs - I'll do it!!!
And I also will try to do the platette on my prewiev. :))

Ambowife Designs 09-12-2012 01:16 AM
