Okay everyone, here’s a big announcement:

We’re having a Guest CT QP challenge! Woohoo!

That’s right— Weeds and Wildflowers has a pair of Guest CT spots up for grabs this spring! That’s TWO chances to become a part of our team for the season. The site CT will vote to decide one of the Guest Spot winners and the other will be randomly selected from all entrants.

Plus, since we’re making this a QP challenge, everyone who participates will receive an album of QPs! You’re welcome to participate in the QP exchange even if you don’t want to compete for the Guest CT spot.

Here’s how it’ll work.

*To enter, you’ll need to submit a quick page (QP) and an example layout (LO) that uses the QP. We want to see both your QP and your vision for it as a layout.

*You may use any of the papers and elements from Gina Marie Huff’s new Sweet and Simple LIFE Kits # 1, #2 and/or #3 but you may use ONLY these Sweet and Simple LIFE kits. In other words, you may use these kits and any of your digital scrapbooking program tools but NO other digital materials besides the goodies in these kits and certainly nothing that requires crediting another designer.

* make a 12 x 12, 300 dpi QP. We have a tutorial here. Upload a 600 x 600 image of the QP (with blanks where the photos would go) to our challenge gallery. You may use any combination of digital scrapbook papers and elements from the Sweet and Simple LIFE kits #1, #2 and/or #3 and your digital scrapping program of choice.

* make a layout version of your QP using only the Sweet and Simple LIFE kits and post a 600 x 600 sized image of it in our challenge gallery as well. We want to see how you would use this QP!

* zip up your 12×12 inch QP and your preview and then upload the file to the filesharing site of your choice (many people use sites like www.4shared.com and www.box.net for this). Please name the QP file “WW_spring2010qpchallenge_YOURNAMEHERE.png” and the folder “WW_spring2010qpchallenge_YOURNAMEHERE.zip”. Please Private Message (PM) me (kenandbelly) a link to your download. We’ll collate the files and send you links to download your QP album after the challenge is finished.

* All entrants must also post their 600 x 600 QPs and layout examples as a reply to this thread in our forum.

*ETA: There are no restrictions as to the number of photos or theme of the QP.  We prefer new QP/LOs but are not requiring them.  LOs may not, however, be used to earn a Petal Point in another WW challenge.

All entries to the Spring Guest CT QP challenge MUST be uploaded and PMed by Wednesday, March 24 at midnight Eastern Standard Time. Failure to abide by these rules will result in disqualification from the contest and the QP exchange. If you want to participate in the QP exchange but don’t want to be considered for the CT spot, just let us know when you PM me.

We will announce the Spring CT Guest Spot winners on our blog. Remember, everyone who participates will receive an album of awesome QPs!
