That is an amazing photo. Such a great range of colors. Now to go back to bed and get a little more sleep and dream of my new kit.
Thank you, designers, for letting me move on. I'm so honored and excited. I still keep checking the Week 1 results thread to make sure that I'm not hallucinating lol
Good luck everyone.

I got the first question, when you have the moon as a theme, do we have to do that too?

oooo, I may have to play along with this one, too! Beautiful inspiration photo, I am totally inspired! Good luck all! Can't wait to see this weeks entries!!

I also have a question: Alphas.... they count as 1 element, correct? Figured I can't be the only one wondering about that

Toiny, sorry, but either I am too excited or too blind and can't read something about it... question: do you want us to include the palette in the preview or zip we make out of the photo, too?
