IMPORTANT MESSAGE -- We're coming up on our 10,000th hit -- BLOG CANDY ALERT!

We had a little dilemma here at Everything Cricut. We don't have a "blog candy" budget until mid to late October, but we're coming up on our 10,000th hit very soon & wanted to be able to give some nice blog candy to someone. So we came up with what we think is a good compromise. We're going to give the blog candy away in October (likely at the end) for the person who captures a screen shot of the 10,000th hit to Everything Cricut -- which will be in the next 1-3 days. And the blog candy is.....a Cricut Solutions cartridge of your choice!....we'll order it & have it sent directly to you. A few housekeeping items so that everyone has a fair chance.

  1. If you don't have the software needed for taking screen shots, I recommend going to http://www.download.com/2001-2001_4-0.html?hhTest=1 and put "screen capture" in the search box in the upper right hand corner. Or, if you want to make sure you only get the list of free (this is free permanently, not just free to try) screen capture programs to download, click HERE. Choose one that works best with whichever Windows platform you have, but make sure that it will capture both the whole screen and selected parts.
  2. Make sure you know how to use the software as soon as possible, as you don't want to be the one who sees the counter hit 10,000 and not know what to do...
  3. If you are that lucky person, capture the whole screen and then capture just the counter. It's in the right hand column not quite half way down.
  4. I know people can do creative things in Photoshop and other similar programs. For that reason, if we receive more than one submission, no one will receive the blog candy.
  5. Many of you are already thinking of hitting the refresh button until you get to the magic number. Just remember that others will likely be doing it too. Try & refrain if you can; I would ask for an honors system in this case; please do your absolute best to make this fair for everyone.
  6. If the winner is someone outside of the US, added costs (on our part, of course) will likely delay the cartridge until some time in November. We'll work it out if and when it happens; we promise to do our best to make this work as smoothly as possible.
  7. If you are the winner, send an email to attention: Saige or Grace at GotScrap@ymail.com with the screen shots attached. They should be in JPEG form (they usually automatically come that way)
  8. Any questions, comments, or concerns, please leave a comment on this post. We want to do our best to make sure everyone has a fair chance.
  9. Good luck, and THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR VISITING EVERYTHING CRICUT!!!
