From the Piggy NDC Week 4: Dream Vacation

Hello ALL!

Week 3 was back-breaking, wasn't it? A true challenge that tested your skills to the limit. I'm super impressed by what you all put out. That is not easy, and to do it so well, so beautifully earns you ALL a big round of applause! Well done!

It is now time for Round 4 of the annual Next Designer Competition here at theStudio.

A quick reminder, everyone is welcome. This door does not close until Round 4 submissions are in: September 29, 2013 at 6:00 (EST). New this year: all rounds are NON-elimination. Please note the change in time for this week's due date.

Non-elimination means you can join in every week, just one week, or 2-3 weeks. Everyone is eligible for prizes with a fresh, clean slate weekly.

We have a brandnew, full-size, commercial use participation prize every week. Simply have your submission in by the deadline to qualify. I will PM participation prizes at the start of each new week.

Voting & Prize Structure
Voting will be both public & private. Public voting will be for registered forum participants only. Private voting will be for theStudio Admin & Design teams only.

Public voting will determine both the First & Second Runner-Ups weekly.

Private voting will determine the Weekly Winner.

The Top Three will win a brand-new, full-size, commercial use grab bag.

The Weekly Winner also wins a $50 commercial use gift certificate to theStudio, as well as Guest Designer offer at theStudio.

Round 4 Prizes

Round 4 Challenge
There are very few rules this round. There is no palette. There is only a theme & a "show me what you've got"!

Oh, my 6th sense worked again! Yesterday we were on a hike (of course in Gerecse) and saw some beautiful trees. An idea jumped into my head, and I know what my kit will be about this week.

Is it okay if we have already been on our dream trip? Or should it be simply some place we dream of going?

Michelle, I think it can be either or - dream vacation is dream vacation, no matter when it happens (or even IF)

I have that problem as well! Especially since I like to use a lot of colors for my kits! Though honestly, I only have about 4 main colors and lots of variations of those colors! I'm working on a new collection right now that has 12 colors total to it! Just take your time and be happy with your colors!
