Today is the start of the Sassy in the City Progressive Relay challenge to celebrate reaching 700 members on the Paper Craft Planet Sassy Studio Designs group page. How are we celebrating?... with a relay challenge and four fabulous Sassy in the City images. These images will be Lindsay's Sassy versions of the four Sex in the City gals - Carrie, Charlotte, Samantha, and Miranda.
If you've never participated in a progressive relay it is basically a series of challenges where you must complete one challenge to earn the freebie to play along in the next challenge and so on and so on.
How it works:
Participants will have two days to complete each challenge. Those who complete challenge #1 will receive the next image via e-mail. In order to earn image #3, they will have to participate in the second challenge, and then a third challenge to claim image #4, the final image. There will be a winner selected from each of these three challenges. There will then be a final challenge for the GRAND prize. This challenge will close July 2nd.
Besides earning the awesome freebies along the way, there will be a random winner drawn from each challenge's entrants for two SSD images of your choice! For those who make it to the last challenge.... there will be a random drawing for one lucky winner who will receive 4 images from the upcoming July release before they hit the Sassy Studio Designs store! That winner will also be given the opportunity to be our guest new release designer and have a creation they make using one of those July images featured on the Sassy Studio Designs blog on release day! In addition, fans can win by commenting on the challenges! We will be drawing two random winners for a SSD image of choice just for leaving some love.
We'll also have festivities over on PCP as well with trivia, more prizes, etc.
Okay, now that you know all the particulars of the challenge, let's get down to some inspiration! Here is my card using Charlotte, which is available FREE for you over on the SSD blog HERE. This image will only be available until 10pm EDT on Monday, June 25th. The theme for this challenge is Fabulous Friends - make a creation focused on friendship.
So make sure to claim your Charlotte image and start playing! But hurry! You only have 2 days to complete the 1st phase of this relay challenge!!
