Saturday Sneak Peek

Happy first Saturday of November to you all!  Before I get into today's sneak peek I just wanted to say thank you to those of you who participated in our Trick or Treat Treasure Hunt.  While there was only a handful of people who played along, the ones who did enjoyed themselves and that is what counts!  Stay tuned for winner details later this weekend!

For the next three weeks we are back to having some regular sneak peeks with no themes so this is my chance to really trip you up.  Oh...did I just say that out loud?  Apparently I need to censor my fingers better.  Anyways, we have our regular freebie coming out on Tuesday and here is a snippet of what it is...


Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!  Sorry for all the laughter but oh dear, this is a difficult one isn't it?!  If you manage to come up with an idea, regardless of how ridiculous it might be, offer up your guesses by Monday at midnight EST in a comment on this post to be eligible.  Remember, you never know how I'll award the goodies, so it is always a good idea to get your guesses in.  It might be to the person(s) who get it correct, it might be to everyone who guesses, so what is stopping you?

I'll see you all soon with the winners list for the Treasure Hunt!
 
Stay warm this weekend or if you are in the warmer climates I suppose I should tell you to stay cool.  Regardless of where you live, I hope that you all have a fabulous weekend!

Trick or Treat Treasure Hunt...Last Clue Being Released

You are almost done...
I hope that you have enjoyed the Treasure Hunt so far.  It is 4:00 p.m. and time for the final clue to be released.  I also hope that all the scheduled posts went out on time and there were no hiccups along the way.

If you missed the first five stops, please go HERE (http://scrapbookingforbeginners-naomi.blogspot.com/2013/10/time-for-trick-or-treat-treasure-hunt.html in case the link doesn't work) and start from the beginning to ensure that you understand how to play along and get all the clues you will need to participate.

Clue #6

  1. Go the Creative Bug Digitals Store at http://www.creativebugdigis.com.
  2. Find the Halloween section. 
  3. Click on the third image across in the third row down.  This will bring the image name up for you.
  4. What is the fourth letter in this image's name?  Take that letter and write it down.  You should now have letters for all six spaces. 

To help you find the correct image in the store, I, LISA, have created a project to showcase it...

 Image Credit Info and Layout Details:
  • Papers, frame and wordart are all mine.  The frame and wordart were altered using layer styles from Shelby Kate Schmitz of graphicssoft.about.com
  • The bat, tree and pumpkin silhouettes are vector images available from freepik.com.
  • The image which shall remain nameless (bwah ha ha ha) is of course Naomi's.  I coloured the image with Copic markers (Pumpkin: YR02, YR04, YR07.  Leaves & stem: YG61, YG63, YG67.)  I then photographed it, uploaded it to once again make it digital and then placed it into my digital layout.
  • I'm entering this image into the following challenge:  Digitally Sweet Challenges--Anything Goes.


__S___     __?___         __?___      __?___      __?___      __?___

All of your blanks should now be filled in.  The first letter was given to you in the original post.  Now, take these six letters and unscramble them to come up with a Hallowe'en appropriate word.  When you think that you've got it, send me an email by clicking HERE and letting me know what word you think it is.  Please use the subject heading, "CBD:  Trick or Treat Treasure Hunt Guess".

Now don't worry, if you weren't around for the day, you will have until Midnight on Friday to complete the treasure hunt.  We want to make sure that all of our readers have the chance to participate.  

Prizes!!!

Don't forget that everyone who gets the word correct will have a chance to win three images of their choice from the store.  There will be one grand prize of three images.  Additionally, everyone who participates will receive a special Halloween word art image AND if you leave a comment on every single blog participating in the Treasure Hunt, you'll also receive a free digital paper.  I'll have your email address when you send in your guess so I'll be able to send you out your extra goodies after confirming that you have, indeed, left a comment on each blogpost in the Treasure Hunt.

I really hope that you have enjoyed yourself as much as we enjoyed bringing this fun Trick or Treat Treasure Hunt to you!  If you had any problems along the way throughout the Treasure Hunt, please be sure to let us know, so that we don't repeat them in the future!

Don't forget to come back on Saturday and check out the latest sneak peek.  Hopefully, I should also have the winning choice for the witch's naming contest and the winners list for today's Treasure Hunt sometime this weekend as well.  I'll do my best anyways.

Until then, stay well and stay crafty!

It's LISA here and I was wondering if you would like to have a little fun today and earn a chance at winning some more of Naomi's awesome Hallowe'en images plus some other goodies?  Well if 'YES' is your answer then stay tuned.

We have a six letter word that you need to figure out:

_____     _____    _____     _____     _____     _____

Throughout the day clue's will be released on each of the participating DT members' blogs with the last clue being released here, on Creative Bug on the Loose, at 4:00 p.m. later today.

When you receive a clue, you must go to the store and figure out what letter it is we are looking for.  Once you have the clues for all six spots, unscramble the letters and come up with a word.  I'll provide the email address you need to send me your guess, in the post that goes out at 4:00 pm on this blog with the final clue.

Just to make sure you understand, I'm going to walk you through the process, which will give you your first letter.

 

Clue #1

  1. Go the Creative Bug Digitals Store at http://www.creativebugdigis.com.
  2. Find the Halloween section. 
  3. Click on the second image across in the third row down.  This will bring the image name up for you.
  4. What is the last letter in this image's name?  Take that letter and write it down.  This is your first of six letters.
Now to make sure that you did it correctly you should have clicked on the image, "Pumpkin Kins".  The last letter is of course an 'S'.

__S___     _____    _____     _____     _____     _____

You now have one of your blanks filled in.  Remember you will need to unscramble the word when you have finished collecting the five remaining letters.
