Challenge #2: Anything Goes

Hello and welcome to Challenge #2.  Given the welcome of our first challenge we've decided that we are going to try a monthly challenge on for size.  We hope that you will join in the fun!

Challenge Details

For the next few months anyway, we will offer up a freebie that you can use to enter the challenge.  You don't have to use the designated freebie on your project but you MUST use a Creative Bug Digital SnapShots image.  So, if you have some past freebies that would work for the theme, you can go ahead and use them.  Of course, you can purchase an image from the Creative Bug Digital SnapShots store for your creation as well.  Click HERE to head to the store.

The theme for this month is Anything Goes.

The challenge will run May 7 – June 3.

Winners will be announced in a separate post on June 11th

Let me introduce you to this month's free image...

Angelina Flowertina Sitting

This sweet young girl was introduced to our readers last year and this time she is back, just in a different pose. 

Click HERE to get "Angelina Flowertina Sitting" available until June 1st, in the freebie section of the store.

Here is some inspiration from the team to get you motivated. Team Bugalug worked with the freebie for the start of the challenge.

Team Bugaloo are showcasing other CBD images. With Can't Wait, we have...
You can find Can't Wait in the Girls section of the store.   Clicking on the watermark will take you to that page.  Currently she is at the top on the right hand side.
With Twigs, we have...
Twigs can be found in the Seasonal section of the store in the Winter collection.   Clicking on the watermark will take you to that page.  Currently he is the first image in the third row of Winter.

Hopefully that will help provide you with the inspiration to get your creative juices flowing!  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 Rules

Just like in all challenges, there are a few rules to follow:
  • As stated earlier, you must use a Creative Bug Digital SnapShots (CBD) image to enter the challenge.  Entries that do not have a CBD image anywhere on them, will be removed without notification.
  • You are allowed to also include additional images or sentiments from other artists in your creation.  However, the image that you upload to the challenge should include the CBD image as the main focus. 
  • You must follow the theme for the specific challenge.  For this month it is ANYTHING GOES.
  • You are allowed to enter a variety of projects as long as they use a CBD image and adhere to the theme, i.e., cards, tags, digital design, artwork, mixed media creations, candles, etc.  The ideas are as boundless as your imagination.
  • You are allowed to link up a total of three projects.  Each one must be unique and part of a different post.
  • New projects only, no backlinking.
  • You are welcome to combine your entry with other challenges.
  • Please link your project post to the challenge blog, not your entire blog link.
  • Please include a link back to this blog in your entry post.
  • Email entries will be accepted if you don't have a blog.  Please submit them to: CreativeBugDigis {at} outlook {dot} com (just be sure to replace 'at' and 'dot' with the appropriate symbols).
  • The challenge will be open just under four weeks and will end at 11:55 p.m. EDT on Tuesday, June 3rd.  
  • Please, consider turning off word verification. Word verification is time consuming and when you have it on it takes everyone longer to leave a little love and unfortunately our team members do not have the extra time to waste. So please turn off word verification if you want us to leave a comment. We hope that you understand. 
  •  We reserve the right to remove any entry that does not meet the concept of the challenge or rules.



Along with a brand spanking new freebie each month, you will get the opportuntiy to win:
  • Five digital images from Creative Bug Digital SnapShots for a person chosen in a random draw based on all eligible entrants.
  • A top three will also be chosen (as long as there are a minimum of seven people entering). Each person in the top three will also get to choose an image from the store.
  • Additional prizes may be added, you just never know! 


Join Us!

We can't wait to see what you come up with!

We hope to see you again in two weeks for our midway post when the team will be by with more wonderful creations to inspire you.





The rest of the Creative Bug Digital SnapShots Team!
