Pile It On #76 - Hot Fun in the Summertime + DT Call

The theme this week at Pile It On is Hot Fun in the Summertime!

We're also having a DT Call this week, so if you'd like to join our team please add "DT" after your entry (and be sure to include your primary email address). We'll announce the challenge winners next Wednesday (July 8), and the DT entries will be contacted within 2 weeks.
Design Team responsibilities:
  1. The PIO Team is looking for crafting bloggers of all kinds! You can do cards, LOs, altered items, paper crafts, home decor, digital, hybrid, you name it. We're all about having fun, being inspired, and supporting the crafting community.
  2. The mission of Pile It On! is to incorporate many challenges into one project. Along with your project, you are required to submit a list of challenges that you will be entering your project into (following the rules of each specific challenge blog).
  3. The Design Team term will be for 3 months (probably longer!) and you will be required to design EVERY OTHER week. Projects & challenge lists are due on the PIO DT blog by 6PM CST Saturday, and due on your blog at 7AM CST Sunday (on your week). Members comment and vote on entries EVERY WEEK by 6PM CST Wednesday.
  4. We are usually sponsored by Digi Stamp companies, so you must be able to print digital images. On these weeks, you will receive 1 digital stamp from the sponsor. Other sponsors may provide samples or discounts. You will never be required to purchase anything!
  5. You must join the Yahoo group and our DT blog, which how we communicate as a group and where you will find the weekly challenges.
  6. That's it! Join this week's challenge and add "DT" to your name when linking up.
