This is a 3 month commitment. We have 1 challenge a week, which makes 4-5 challenges a month. You will be sent your assignments 1 month in advance to give you ample time to complete them. You will then email us your projects and we will post them as samples along with the challenge! At this time, we do not have a sponsor, so all we can offer YOU is a DT badge, your work displayed here every week, and your shining smiling face in the DT section of our sidebar (it isn't there yet, but it will be!)
If you would like to be a member of our design team, please submit 4 of your favorite projects to firstname.lastname@example.org . We are looking for versatility, so try to include a variety of samples! Deadline for submissions is September 21.
We are looking forward to seeing your submissions! The number of DT members we accept will depend on the number of applications we receive! Thanks for your interest!

Well for some people, summer means more time to get their craft on; while for others the end of the summer means less leisure/crafting time. We hope you'll all be able to continue to play along with us at The Shoe once Labor Day has come and gone, as we have loads of great challenges around the corner for you talented artists!
Speaking of talented artists, remember this layout sketch from Monday, designed by our very own Kristy?
Well today, we challenge you to turn it into a CARD, and share your creation with us! Here are the Design Team's creations - hopefully you'll be inspired!
See how easy it is to turn a layout sketch into a card? We had lots of fun with it, and we hope you will, too! Upload your entry to Mr. Linky by August 31 for a chance to win a fab prize from our fab sponsor, Scrap-A-Doodle-Doo, and check out Karmyn's Blog to see how you can win some candy! Thanks for playing, and happy hump day! :)
