Add a Creation to a post - 

Easy Peesy!! Go to the tabs and click on the ‘Challenge Dates’ tab. Find the date and challenge you want to add to, click on the link and you will be on the page to upload creations.

Click on the pencil and upload your creation.  Make sure to add your name and image name with links to your blog and the store

This is to help people find your personal blog and the actual image you used really easily so you get blog visitors and Maurie gets people into the shop! win win! yey!!

Any name that's not linked to the person's blog will not be fixed. Make sure your image is set to large so we have a nice uniform size of image on the post.

For challenge day posts, Lou will add all the challenge details in the post you add your makes to so please feel free to copy and paste that part from this blog to make it super easy for yourself.

Safe Guarding your work for online sharing-
In recent months it has become apparent that pinterest, facebook , blogs and other online sharing places are getting a bit of a bashing from people that steal finished images to print out and make their own cards with. Please don't think that won't happen to you, sadly people are still trying to get away with doing this and we had to delete someone’s printed out work from a facebook challenge last year!! No way right?!!  so think safe Dream Team!

Please don't share any just coloured images without watermarking them up in some form first, placing them somewhere over your image generally helps to deter theft.
Whilst we know that these people will always be out there, it’s best to try and keep ourselves and Maurie’s images safe!!

Also, when sizing your images however you edit them ( I am an adobe elements chick for this stuff!!), make them web size. I resize things to 600pixels on the largest side and a DPI of 300. This way if people click on them and try to print them out because they look lush on the computer screen, they will get a shock when they print it and its teeny weeny and non- stealable!!
