MFT Guest Designer Challenge....Questions

I've had several people post questions regarding 'how' to become a Guest Designer at My Favorite Things...... Here's some information that I hope you will find helpful. Also, if you'd like to read it directly from the MFT Forum at Splitcoaststampers, here's the link:
(Sorry, I haven't learned (yet) how to 'write-in' a link with the company name and stuff... Someday...someday.)

My Favorite Things holds a 'Release Party' at the first part of each month. During the party, a challenge is posted by one of the designers on the MFT Design Team. The challenge will be different each month and this month's challenge was to 'Think Outside the Box'. The challenge was to create a project that IS NOT a square or a rectangle, to make any other shape out there…. circles, triangles, octagons, hexagons, just not a square or rectangle.
Everyone is encouraged to play along and the challenge is left open for 24 hours to give everyone time to upload. (We all know that not everybody can attend the party, and that's why the challenge is open for one day.) Though you are encouraged to use MFT stamps when you enter, it is NOT required!! A cut-off time is posted, and a winner is chosen. The entries have been outstanding, so it's been VERY tough for the ladies on the DT to narrow it down!
The Guest Designer receives the new stamp releases for the following month (before they're available to the public) and their creations are uploaded and featured right along with the MFT Design Team's stuff during the next month's 'Sneak Peek's' and Release Party.
We would love to have you play along with us----be sure to join us in February!
I'll be back later this morning with a couple of things to show you. Have a great morning everybody!
