Default Heads up on a new challenge starting soon!

At the end of last year, I started a thread about what sort of challenge you would like to see offered. One of the ideas which received favorable feedback was having a challenge where you can show off your favorite kit that you have bought from any of our Studio designers.

I'm going to run with this idea and I'm really excited about it. Thanks to the support and generosity of Toiny and our fabulous designers there will be a little incentive for you to join in as well.

There won't be a theme or a technique or anything like that for this challenge. You can feel completely free to create a page of your liking that you feel shows off your current favourite purchase! The idea is to create a page with a kit (just the one kit or collection) that you love and that you have purchased (from the Studio) recently, say within the last 6 months. Sometimes a page gets a little lost in just the members' gallery and doesn't get the attention it deserves IMO. So now is your chance to 'show off'!

The challenge will run a little along the lines of Min's popular Progressive Scrap in that I will conduct a poll to determine the favorite layout amongst members. The winner will receive a coupon for the equivalent of a $5 discount from the store of the designer whose product she used. There will also be a random draw with a similar prize. Site CT members are most welcome and encouraged to join in the fun, but for obvious reasons would not be eligible for inclusion in the poll.

I haven't decided on a name for the challenge yet (catchy name suggestions welcome!) but it will start after the Progressive Scrap finishes. So this month it was start on Monday, 20th January and will conclude on Friday, 31st January. A poll will be put up on February 1st.

I'm hoping that you will all enjoy participating in this challenge and thereby making it a regular monthly feature!

............I have also taken on board other suggestions and will try and incorporate some of these ideas into my regular monthly Variety Challenge. Thank you all.

This will be fun! I like all of the name suggestions too, but lean toward Kool Kit, if I had to choose only one.

I like the "Love That Kit" name idea for the Challenge, although the others are good too. Love that Kit seems to say it all.

Great ideas Kaye!

For the name I'm hovering between "Love that Kit" and "Kool Kit".

Any other suggestions?

Love the idea. Don't know if I will make it this month. We are taking care of the grandkids more in the next 2 weeks as our son is photographer for a group touring Afghanistan bases. It under the auspices of something like the USO. Anyway, he's not here to take the kids when his better half works, so we're helping out.

Here's a couple of names:

Favorite Fabulous Scrap

Best of the Best

Designer Stars Layout Shine (just kidding, but was trying to come up with a name with both Kit Designer and Layout Designer in it)

Pamela
