Challenge #7--Fallen Hues

Hello and welcome to our new challenge!

Before we start, I am afraid that I have some sad news to share. This will be our last challenge. Regrettably, Naomi can no longer afford to keep the cart open for the store (although the store front itself will still exist) and she is so busy working outside of the home right now that she doesn't have time to devote to finding a solution at present. While it is possible that CBD may come back in the future, it will be some time down the road. As I mentioned, the store front itself will remain open so I'll still be able to use the images for sponsorship, there just won't be anything new going into the store and there is no way to make a purchase.

I want to take this time to thank all of you for your support during this past year and a half that I have been working as the Promotional Coordinator for Creative Bug Digital SnapShots. It has been a pleasure to be part of this wonderful blog and to promote Naomi's images. I have been backed by a wonderful group of ladies and I couldn't have done it without them.

Now, we're not saying goodbye just yet, we still have our midway coming up in a couple weeks, and there are still two winners announcement posts. Plus of course, there is this month's new challenge to tell you about, so let's get on with it shall we!

Challenge Details

Once again we will be offering up a new image for free that you can use to enter the challenge if you would like (details on how to get it are below). However, remember that you do not need to use a Creative Bug Digital SnapShots image in your project. We'd love it if you would, and there is extra incentive for doing so but it is not a requirement. If you do enter using a CBD image, you can enter as many times as you would like. If using another company's image, then you will be limited to three entries. Additionally, if you use a CBD image, you will receive an extra chance for winning the main prize.

You have lots of options if you'd like to increase your odds of winning. You can work with this month's designated free image or if you have some past freebies that would work for the theme, you can go ahead and use them.

The theme for this month is Fallen Hues. In most of North America, fall is upon us. I love this time of the year with all the rich colours of the season surrounding us. This month we want to see a fall themed creation featuring a minimum of three colours from the following Design Seeds palette. So get out all those green, orange and brown tones and show us the beauty and bounty of the fall season. An additional prize of three images will be presented to a random winner who uses all six colours from the palette. It must be clear that each colour has been used, in order to be eligible for this special prize.
Click HERE to find this awesome palette over on Design Seed.

This final challenge will run November 5 – December 2.

Winners will be announced in a separate post on December 10th

Let me introduce you to this month's designated free image...
Fall is most definitely here!  This little cutie is ready to have some fall flavoured fun.  Why not bring her home with you so you can have some fun of your own.  To grab Fall is Here, please click HERE or on the image to be taken to a download location.

DT Features

Here is some inspiration from the team to get you motivated. Monica and Sue worked with the freebie for the start of the challenge.

Suze is showcasing a card using Giving Thanks...
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:
  • You do not need to use a Creative Bug Digital SnapShots (CBD) image to enter the challenge; however, if you do, you can enter as many cards/projects as you like!
  • If you use a Creative Bug image, please add CBD after your name--example: Lisa CBD.  Link up once using your actual blog post and then link a second time using your blog address so that your name will be entered twice into the drawing for the prize.  Please note that you can enter as many times as you would like as long as you are using a CBD image.  Each one must be unique and part of a different post.
  • If you choose to enter the challenge using another artist's image you are limited to three entries. If you submit more than three, the additional entries will not be counted in our winner's draw.
  • You must follow the theme for the specific challenge.  For this month it is FALLEN HUESFor specific details, please see above.  
  • You are allowed to enter a variety of projects as long as they adhere to the theme, i.e., cards, tags, digital design, artwork, mixed media creations, candles, etc.  The ideas are as boundless as your imagination.
  • 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 (except in the case where you have used a CBD image and are adding a second entry).
  • Please include a link back to this blog in your entry post.  If you don't know how to create a link, make sure that you at least include our blog address in your post so that others can find us.
  • 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 end at 6:00 p.m. EDT on Tuesday, December 2nd. 
  • 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 the brand spanking new freebie Fall is Here, you will get the opportunity to win:
  • Five digital images from Creative Bug Digital SnapShots for a person chosen in a random draw based on all eligible entrants.
  • An additional prize of three images will be presented to a random winner who has used a CBD image in their project.  In theory, that means that if you use a CBD image, you could win a total of eight images!
  • An additional prize of three images will be presented to a random winner who used all six colours from the palette. It must be clear that each colour has been used, in order to be eligible for this special prize.
  • 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!

I'll be back next week letting you know who the winner was in Challenge #6 and then the team will be back on November 19th with our midway post with more wonderful creations to inspire you. We hope to see you all again very soon!





The rest of the Creative Bug Digital SnapShots Team!
