Default NDC Week 2: Beach GetAway

Hello ALL!

Great job on Week 1, you all made the voting very, very difficult. Thank you for sharing your creativity, imagination & talent with us. It’s not easy to put your art up for public display.

It is now time for Round 2 of the annual Next Designer Competition here at theStudio.

A quick reminder, everyone is welcome. This door does not close until Round 2 submissions are in: September 14, 2013 at midnight (EST). New this year: all rounds are NON-elimination.

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 2 Prizes

Top Three Prize


Round 2 Challenge
Create a mini kit, using the same theme, different palettes. This year we again have a common theme throughout all four rounds: Travel.

my favorite Beach GetAway; Lake Tahoe, California



The Rules:

Your mini-kit must include:

I have worked hard to make these rules as clear and easy to understand as possible. However, if you have any questions please post here or PM me.

The rules are very clear. I only have a question about GetAway... I'm not sure to understand GetAway...
Thank you for the clarification.

You may use any photo as inspiration but please give credit to the photographer.

Oh my... If you said vacation in outer space I could probably work with that LOL... My one & only trip to the beach was almost 50 yrs ago, I was very little, we were visiting my aunt & she took us on a train to the beach one day... of the beach visit itself I remember nothing...

Oh well.. I guess this will have to be the beach vacation of my imagination LOL!
