Hope this doesn't throw a wrench in the works if we used AdobeRGB for this kit, as I did. It was the solution to my gamut problem. Do you want things changed for the contest?

no you should be fine I checked your kit already and it wasn't everything I just don't want the winners to have to go changing a whole kit because it's not print friendly

All our designers use sRGB IEC61966-2.1 and all the designers I buy cu stuff from use it too. Maybe elements is different but that is was Toiny wants us to use and that's what I check for when I am quality checking.

Oh my... I finally finished, well not finished exactly, just has to stop to package and upload. And only minutes to spare, phew!

Boy AM I TIRED!

I've been thinking about all the reasons why I might not win and then, when I saw all the fabulous kits in the gallery, I added one more reason to my list, or rather 8 more (there were 8 there where I uploaded).

Now I need to go car shopping.

Good luck all you awesome ladies!

Well, it's been a wild past few days for me, and I assume from the timing of the kits that were coming in, you all might feel the same way. I totally crashed after uploading my kit last night, then had to go to my "day job" today... so I am just now headed over to the gallery to take a good look at what's been going on there. I know it sounds totally cheesy, but I think we're all winners no matter the outcome here.

I have to agree, Karen... all of the kits submitted in this round are top notch! I love every single one of them and it was super-duper hard to make a vote... which is probably why I haven't voted yet!! LOL! You guys are one uber talented bunch!!

Wish i was able to see your mail.... at the time you sent it it was middle of the night here on 09/27......wouldn't have changed my settings as Rose screenshots suggested...
Wouldn't have try to fix the Gamut and ended with plenty jaggies (followed a tutorial was the first time i was using this tool and didn't know it was messing up the whole thing)
As Pierre de Coubertin said : Important is to participate

I am thinking about how tomorrow is Thursday and I am SO excited but like Vickilyn said earlier, I am really curious how the winners are picked. Mostly because I had TWO stray pixels (and I checked that! and my stinky element folder did not rename (I just noticed that today). I also used shapes to help me do my elements since I am still learning how to do those. I also had several doodles (good ones) that I just didn't get time to clean up and color/texturize. I too have about 4 kits picked out that I think could easily win (not including mine!!)

GOOD LUCK everyone!
