Challenge #4 -- Winners

Hellooooooooooooo!  I hope that all of you have been enjoying your summer or winter depending on where in this wonderful world you live.  While the team is still on vacation, I thought I'd better pop over here and let you know who the winners were for Challenge #4.

We were soooooooo close to being able to have a top three this month with six eligible participants (the seventh entry was ineligible as they didn't use a CBD image) but even though we can't bring you a top three, we still have two separate prizes for this past challenge.  First up, here is our lucky winner for the main prize...

Challenge Winner

Congrats Jennie!  You have won five images of your choice from the store.  

Now we also had a prize for the person who had the most signs of summer in their creation and that lucky person, with seven signs (bathing suit, sand, pail and bucket, flower, flip flop, fish, and summer related sentiment) is....

Congrats Rachel!  You have won three images of your choice from the store.    

Jennie and Rachel, in order to claim your images, please click HERE to head to the Creative Bug Digital SnapShots store.  Scroll down a little bit and you'll see a brown banner on the left hand side that says, "looking for digis".  There will be a Polaroid image right underneath it that says SnapShots (Digital Images).  Click on this.  You'll be taken to a page that lists all the categories of images available for you to choose from.  Once you've made your decision, please send an email to:  CBD_winclaims {at} outlook {dot} com (or by clicking HERE to bring the address up in your email program), with the subject heading CBD Ch#4 Winner, listing the images you want and the section they came from.  I'll then get them to you as quick as I can.  In the interim, please grab the badge below to add to your blog.
Congratulations to our winners! 

Don't Forget...

The team is taking a well deserved vacation from their duties.  I'll be back on August 30th, if everything goes according to plan, to bring you a sneak peek of the next challenge freebie.  Then,we'll back with a new challenge on September 3rd.  I hope you will be able to drop by again at that time.

I hope that whatever season you are experiencing, that the weather has been fair and that you are finding some time to enjoy yourselves.  Stay well and be crafty my friends!!!

Challenge #4--Signs of Summer...Midway Post

Happy Wednesday everyone.  I hope that you are all safe and well and having a fabulous week.  Right now it is time for the midway post for Challenge #4.  Remember, in addition to this month's designated free image...

You also have the opportunity to work with some great past summer related releases that Naomi is generously offering up for free as well this month...

Click HERE to get any of the images currently up for grabs in the freebie section of the store.

Remember though, while you can choose any one of the above freebies, you can use ANY Creative Bug Digital SnapShot image to work with as long as it relates to the theme.

Two members of our own team are currently on vacation but they still found time to create a card to help inspire you.  This time around, Team Buggaloo worked with the freebie that was given out at the start of the challenge, Mrs. Sunshine (see above).
Vicky's 'signs of summer' include a butterfly, the sun, and some flowers.
Monica's 'signs of summer' are a summer hat, some flowers, and some butterflies.

Team Bugalug had the opportunity to showcase other CBD images...
Judith included several 'signs of summer':  a couple ladybugs, sunshine, a wheelbarrow, some flowers, a flower pot, green grass, a bee, a butterfly, and some corn.  For her project she used the image Ladybug Layover.  You can find this image in the Fun Critters section of the store.  Currently it is the middle image in the fourth row.  Clicking on the watermark will take you to the proper section.
Suze's 'signs of summer' include swimming costume, bucket and spade and sandThis image will be in the store as a freebie for at least a couple more weeks.  You can also find it in the store in the Bugalicious section.  Currently it is the second image in the second row.  Clicking on the watermark will take you to the proper section.

That should certainly help to get those thoughts of summer flowing so that you can enter our current challenge!  Clicking on the individual bugs will take you to each DT member's blog to check out the details of their projects.  Our team members work very hard to inspire you, so please go and see them if you can.

Challenge Details

Don't forget the current challenge is running  July 2 – Aug 5, with the theme of Signs of Summer where you must include at least three signs of summer on your creation.  If you need ideas check out the original challenge post (link below). Winners will be announced in a separate post on August 13th. We eagerly await to see your creation over on the link up.  Remember you MUST use a Creative Bug Digital SnapShots image on your project but it can be any image you want, a current freebie, a past freebie, an image you've won or bought.  Of course there are some more general rules which you can find when you scroll down to the bottom of the original challenge post (link below).

Join Us!

We can't wait to see what you come up with!  Click HERE to head to the link up for Challenge #4.

Also, just a reminder that the team is going on holidays for the month of August so there will be no challenge next month and therefore no sneak peek.  However, I will be back on August 13 to let you know who the winner for Challenge #4 is.  Currently we have four people entered and if we get three more--fingers crossed--we'll also have a top three.  I may be back to drop in with an extra reminder as well, since this month has an extra Wednesday in it.  You just never know when I may appear ;) .  Until that time, be safe and stay crafty!





The rest of the Creative Bug Digital SnapShots Team!
