Challenge 5

This week in The Biggest User, we say goodbye to 6 competitors.... 3 were chosen by votes by their peers, and the remaining 3 were used the least amount of stash. It is sad to say good bye to these fantastic bunch of competitors, but it is a competition and we are trying to find give away the title of THE BIGGEST USER.

This week's challenge is based on the challenge given by Ngaire on her blog Beautiful Like a Rainbow. But the competitors must use 10 different manufacturers products on their page, and bonus points will be given for manufacturers over 10. The layout must contain a photo of themselves and the word beautiful in the title. Look forward to seeing what everyone creates this week. Check them all out HERE

To get through to Challenge 6, the 5 Biggest Users - combining scores from the first 5 challenges - minus the bonus points - will be tallied, these 5 users will then go through to round 6. Where the Biggest User will be the layout with the most points for this layout only. No bonus points will be given for Challenge 6, it will be based purely on points alone, and the amount of stash used.

The boss is away for the weekend, so I thought whilst she was away I would make room for some new patterned papers, by reducing all the current stock for this weekend only.

Recieve a whopping 20% off all PATTERNED PAPER, (excluding paper packs) for orders placed between MIDNIGHT FRIDAY 25th May WST and MIDNIGHT SUNDAY 27th May WST. All orders will be adjusted manually at invoicing and charged accordingly. Offer whilst stocks last and items will not be placed on back order. So if you want them get in quick!

And just to make the deal a little sweeter, for every 10 sheets of patterned paper you buy, you get 1 free sheet of cardstock. So buy 20 pieces of patterned paper, get 2 free cardstock... (cardstock colours will be chosen randomly.)

But ssssshhhhhhh don't tell the boss!!!!

June 1st is the start of a long weekend over here in WA, and so what better way to celebrate a long weekend than by having a Cyber Crop. There will be games, chatter and even a challenge or 2 to help lasso some of that mojo, that tends to escape during the winter months when we are all too cold to function! (says she who is freezing in her office) Stay tuned to the blog, and the FORUM for the details.
