As some of you may know, I recently joined a new store - Sophisti-Scraps.  I hadn't planned on joining another store ... but the owner, Toni, is such a great gal I just couldn't refuse!  Now this is quite different from my "normal" stores as they started as a Tagger store ... however they have branched out to include Full size.  They have always included Commercial Use in both sizes.  Toni's vision is to have a site where EVERYONE can come and shop, enjoy the forum, and just have a good time!!  I've been really having a lot of fun with the girls there ... so why not come over and check it out yourself?  Need some incentive?  Check out the Summer Promotion in the works!

Le Sophisti-Scrappin' 2010 Summer World Tour

Are you ready for a six-week ride around the world? Starting in Sydney, Australia and ending in Paris, France, the Sophisti-Scraps Designers are taking you for a summer trip you won't forget! If you can survive the ride, that is!

The top survivors in their respective size class (i.e. Full and Tagger) will each win $50 in Sophisti-Bucks! Second place will each receive $25, and $10 will be received by third. That's $170 in prizes up for grabs! Plus, you never know what we might throw in along the way.

Here's how it works: Every Thursday for the next six weeks, beginning July 22, 2010, two of the Sophisti-Scraps Designers will have a free kit for you, themed for that week's destination - one page kit and one tagger kit. The price of your wheels is creating a tag or a layout (or both, if you're game!) with those free kits and posting your entry in our gallery, where the rest of our forum members and staff will vote on their favorites. The lowest number of votes will be eliminated from the contest. If you "survive," you'll continue on to the next destination, where you'll pick up new kits and paint the town all over again!

The last stop on Le Tour is Paris, France, which will be posted for download August 26, 2010. Winners will be announced September 2, 2010!

Registration: You must pre-register for the contest. If you're reading this, you've most likely already joined our forum. Post here and let us know you you'd like to enter, or PM, or use the contact form, or send an email. There are a multitude of ways we'll hear you knocking.

Just make sure we know your user name and which contest you're entering (or both, if you've got the legs for it!) so we can grant you access to the private Le Tour Riders forum, where your kits will be posted and you'll find other goodies waiting for you!

Sign-ups must be received by Wednesday, July 21st. You will not be allowed to switch contests after entering or being eliminated.

The Time Line: Kits will be posted for download in the private forum each Thursday. You will have until Sunday to post your entry (or entries, if you're doing both contests). The voting polls will be open from Monday through sometime on Wednesday, so eliminations can be done before the next kits are released on Thursday, and we continue on to the next destination.

We'll also have related goodies in the store and forum, so anyone not entering the contest will still get a little vacation flavor. But you'll have to be quick, they'll change each week to correspond with our new destination! Anyone not riding doesn't have to stand on the sidelines. Feel free to join in the forum festivities! And you must be a forum member in order to vote!

Oh, and I'm creating the final kit ... PARIS!  I'm working on it now ... it should be a cutie!  Want to participate?  Register at the forum and sign up for the TOUR - this should be a lot of fun and a great way to meet some new people!!

Okay, I'm also running 4 challenges - Element, Template, Journaling, and ScrapLift.  The posting gift for each is a $2 coupon to my store at Sophisti-Scraps ... do them all and earn $8 in coupons!  Coupons are valid for everything in my store at S-S!  The Element and Template challenges have freebies to get you going:

Both of these were created in Illustrator then brought into PS for the final touches!  You can't get these freebies anywhere else ... I'd love to see some of you over there, please JOIN ME and take the challenges!!

And for all those entering the contest - GOOD LUCK!!!
