One more day for Challenge #38 + A DT Call!!

DT CALL IS NOW CLOSED AND ALL APPLICANTS WILL BE CONTACTED SOON!

Morning all!  Just wanted to pop in quickly and let you know that there is a bit of a problem with the linky (on inlinkz's end, not ours!) starting late Thursday night so if you tried to link up then but couldn't please leave us a comment with a link to your post in the original post (here) by Saturday morning, 5am Hawaii Time and we will make sure to include you in the draw!!  We will be back on Sunday to post the winners so don't disappear on us yet!!!

We are also having a DT Call... we will have a couple open spots next year and hope to fill them!  Here are the details...


This is a minimum 4-month commitment beginning January 2015.  We are a VERY laid back team and know you will have a lot of fun with us and feel very welcomed by our fellow DT members!  

Our challenges post every other Friday and run for a full 2 weeks.  The in-between Friday is a mid-inspiration post day.  Showcase posts are assigned to specific days - the 3rd Saturday of the month, 1st Monday of the month, etc.  All posts, including showcase posts, are made at 5am Hawaii time.

Requirements:
o     Create 2 projects a month:
  •      1 challenge project following the challenge theme to be shared on the Challenge blog using either a sponsor image or KBD image.  This project needs to be uploaded to our private DT blog (2) days before your assigned post (challenge or mid-inspiration) goes live.  Our challenges run every 2 weeks so there may be a month where you will be required to create 2 projects. 
  •      1 project showcasing an image from Kitty Bee Designs per month to be showcased on the KBD blog.  This project needs to be uploaded to our private DT blog (2) days before your scheduled day.  The only requirement for this project is to use a KBD image.  Other than that, anything goes.
o   Participate in new-release parties/blog hops for Kitty Bee Designs when applicable.
o     Have a Facebook account (this is where our DT chats and where I post our files and sponsor images).
o     Have a personal blog to post about each new challenge/mid-challenge inspiration, and link back to the Aloha Friday Challenges. 
o     Post your DT badge on your blog’s sidebar.
o     Comment on your assigned numbers. (no more than 2-3)
o   Vote on the DT top picks at the end of each challenge. (every 2 weeks)
o     Promote Kitty Bee Designs wherever you can!

Benefits:
o     You will be provided with a wide range of images from KBD and other sponsors to work with and use not only for our challenges, but on projects for yourself and other challenges.
o     Your name and blog link will be displayed on the Kitty Bee Blog.

How to apply:
Email DT coordinator kel: KittyBeeChallenges@gmail.com with:
1.   Your name & location
2.   Your blog address
3.   A list of your current DT responsibilites
4.    (3) of your best recent creations (either uploaded to the email or linked to your blog) 

This DT call is open to everyone - international applicants welcome, no previous design team experience necessary. The call will stay open through December 31st or until all spots have been filled. 

I look forward to seeing your applications and can’t wait to add to our fun team!

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend... only 5 days until Christmas!!!

Mahalo Plenty!
