We will be playing with theStudio's December Mega "Reindeer Games":
Here come the rules:
This progressive scrap will go on for 12 days. Each day I will give you a download link with some papers or elements you are required to use according to this day's instructions. Since this is the 12 Days of Christmas PS you will probably have guessed that there will be a lot of adding in the last days... so you might keep the resizing option in mind!!!
The first download is free, you will get the others via pm after completion of the day before. You can join in until Wednesday, but you have to complete the days to get the next download.
You can recolor and/or crop the pieces or change their opacity but you have to use them as specified in each day's instructions and once they're placed you are not allowed to move them. Make sure you save your layout in a .psd format so you are able to place new pieces below others if you should wish to do so.
On Dec 23rd I will post a poll to choose the winner who gets this month's Mega for free! There's also a participation prize for all of you who finish their layouts - you will get a coupon for 1 $ off this Mega."

A little advice to you who just start Progressive Scrap : start small. You can never guess what comes next :). Here are my layouts from Day 1 to 12 :
Finally.... Day 12
I'm not too proud with the final look. It looks so cluttered :). Oh well, at least I finished it on time despite the store login problem I experienced for few hours on Day 11.
On the last post, Min explained, "This PS has been a little different than usual - so it's only logical the end will be different, too: There will be no poll!!!
Since it's (almost) Christmas and all of you worked very hard to create these beautiful pages - and I'm afraid it would be impossible to choose between them - I talked to Toiny and she generously agreed with me that all of you deserve to get the complete Studio Mega "Reindeer Games" for free!!!!!
Here, in Germany, we celebrate Christmas on the 24th (and on the 25th and the 26th, LOL) and that means I will be very busy and away from my computer. So your deadline to post your finished day 12 layout will be Friday, Dec 23rd. 4 pm EST. Upload it to the gallery and don't forget to leave a link here in this thread. That's when I will send out the coupon codes for all who finished in time.
I did post a sign-up thread for the QP exchange, with all the info and deadlines for that - since your page is already done it's really easy to participate, LOL.
The January PS will start one week later than usual, on Jan 15th - I'll be out of town and without internet access the weekend before."
Yippee... and guess what, I got her email on Christmas day with the coupon code to pick up the "Reindeer Games" for free! If you want to see creation of all participants you can go here.
On Day 11, I experienced Store Login Problems. Even though I've typed my login and password already, the store wouldn'nt let me reply thread. So this is the solution :
