We're taking your ABC game skills to a whole new level this month... and tacking on some prizes as well! This month's message board game is The Alphabet Hunt. Every few days we'll give you a theme and a searching task and then set you loose to start building our list in alphabetic order!

This week's theme is: FALL. Your task is to find and attach photos representing fall and add them to this thread in ABC order.

A few rules:

* When posting photos, please resize them to no larger than 250 pixels by 250 pixels and keep the file size as low as possible.
* In your post type the letter you're on and the alphabetic word about your picture that qualifies it for the list. (ie A is for April Fools and your photo is of an April Fool's joke in action)
* You may not post twice in a row, but as long as one other person has posted to the list, you can jump back in and post again.
* Keep the ABC order sequence intact. Don't post photos/letters out of ABC order.
* There will be NO duplicating letters allowed, so if someone else plays the same letter while you're still typing/attaching a photo, the first person who posted for the letter will get the credit and their name in the drawing for that specific letter.
* When we've reached letter Z we'll start back at A and continue going until the next theme is announced.
* It's not necessary for you to keep track of what words have been played. It's okay if we have duplicated words as we cycle through the alphabet several times as long as the photos for those words are different. (ie each time we cycle through the ABCs the photo for L can be leaves as long as each photo played is different)
* For the letter X you can use photos representing words that have the X sound as in 'Exit' or a photo that shows things crossed in an 'X' shape.


We'll post new themes and searching tasks every few days. Those posts will be bold and in purple for easy locating in the thread.

For each item you correctly add to our alphabetic list in this thread, your name will be entered into a drawing which will be held at the end of the month. Five winners will be drawn and each will win a $5 gift certificate to the Scrap Girls boutique! Additionally, the person with the most correct contributions to the game will automatically win a $10 gift certificate to the Scrap Girls boutique! Participation is what counts big this month, so join us for LOTS of fun!

There may be an easier way, but this is how I do it: at the bottom of the editing space, click on "Use Full Editor". Use the Browse button to find the image on your computer, then "Attach This File". Once that's done, click on the "Add to Post" link in the same blue bar as your image, and then the "Add Reply" button.

HTH! And if there is an easier way to do it, I'd love to hear it! :)

Hey you gals are doing great ... I guess. To me S is for 'SO Confused'. How do some of those posted pictures relate to fall? For some reason I assumed that we were supposed to go traipsing through the boutique but now that I'm looking at what everyone is posting I guess not. Where are we supposed to find these photos?

T is for 'Think I'll sit this one out' :).

Have fun ladies!

I'm sorry you're confused Denise! The photos are just any photos you have access to. The game will change every few days with new themes, as well as new things to be including in the ABC list (for example, sometimes you'll be asked to share a link to a layout of a specific theme, or a link to a product in the boutique of a specific theme, etc) It's really not a hard game once you get the feel for it. I hope you'll consider playing along! Every time you play your name goes into the drawing for boutique gift certificates, so it's worth giving it a shot :) Let me know if you have any other questions!
