DT call over at Creative soup!!!

Good morning everyone!
Its almost Friday and I have some awesome news to share with
you all to get your weekend off to a bang!

Creative Soup is adding to their team!

I have LOVED working on this team!
There are some wonderful ladies with huge amounts of talent and you will just love being on the team, so apply today!

Who We Are:
Creative Soup ( is a scrapbook challenge forum whose goal is to challenge and inspire scrapbookers to create, create, create!

Creative Soup has several challenges and events to help people get their mojo going!

1. Mojo Mondays: Weekly challenges that rotate between four different kinds of challenges (AAM, Sketch, Inspiration, and Random). You can learn more about these challenges

2. Quarterly Classes: We offer one free quarterly class with detailed format instructions and journaling prompts where scrapbookers can follow along online.

3. Fun inspirational threads that post each week including: Talk Tuesday (journaling prompt), Web Wednesday (cool sites to check out), Font Friday (featured online free font), and Snapshot Sunday (photography challenges/ideas)

4. The forum: unlike most challenge blogs, this site offers communities where people can chat, ask questions, and share their creations.

Why You Should Apply!

This is a free forum so there is no true compensation. This site is meant to be a fun, friendly place where people encourage each other in this great hobby! But there are several great reasons to join the team!

1. The Experience - if you have always wanted to be on a design team this is a great way to get experience that you can add to your scrappy resume! I am always happy to recommend people who have been on my design teams for other teams.

2. The Challenge - nothing helps keep you motivated as much as a being on a team with a commitment! Our challenges are creative and fun and will be sure to help push your creativity.

3. The Community - we are lucky enough to have a great group of people who are active and supportive of each other. It truly is a fun and welcoming site! We promise a drama-free zone where you can just enjoy yourself!

4. At the end of each quarter the site founders will send the Creative Team members who completed their challenges and duties a little thank you gift from us.

The Creative Team Requirements:

1. To create 1-2 projects per month for our challenges. Each team member will be assigned 1 challenge in advance that they must complete. If something comes up and you cannot do the challenge on time we ask that you find someone to swap challenges with or someone to cover for you. You are encouraged to do at least one additional challenge of your choice but this is not required.

2. Participate on the forum by checking in a few times a week and posting ideas, layouts, and responses to members’ questions or threads. You are not required to be on the forum every day... but we do hope to see a regular presence on the board.

3. Positively represent the board by sharing links to the site where you can (including blogs and forums) and by conducting yourself on the forum in a friendly manner.

4. Creative Team term is 3 months (April-Jun 2011), with an option to extend to 6 months if both sides choose. Members can serve no more than six consecutive months on the Creative Team as we like to keep the Creative Team fresh!
