Scrapz Do or Die

In September/October we will be running a new fun competition called Do or Die at Scrapz.biz.

It is mandatory that you will sign up for this one.

Every week you will be given one challenge to complete plus a number (eg #4). You have to upload by a specific date, however the gallery will not be public. You will not be able to view it until after the closing date and you will not know how many people have uploaded before you.  If your entry is that week's particular upload number (eg #4), you will be out of the comp.  However, should someone not upload by the due date, they will be automatically disqualified and there will be no sudden death for any of the other contestants that week.
You may enter two layouts per week to avoid sudden death, however, you only have one extra life.  This means that if you have to rely on your second entry one week to survive, you cannot use that life line again.

First round starts on Monday, September 3, 2012.
Sign-up closes at midnight on Sunday, September 2, 2012.

The prize for the last scrapper standing will be a $100 prize pack.
