Theme Of The Month Contest!

official listing
on July 29th 2013

SYNTHCRO is away, for an undisclosed amount of time.

Check my blog and this forum thread for entries related to the Theme of the Month Contest!

In Synthcro's absence I will be taking over the contest with Sirea resuming prize awarding duties in September.

In August free spray paint is the prize to all participants!
Stonemason's tools, buttons, gift wrapping paper and bows will also be awarded to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd best entries!

The theme for August is "School"!

Buses, books, paper, pens and pencils, crayons, maps, globes, chalk and chalk boards, glue and paste, an apple for your teacher, etc...

You decide, so long as it is related to school!

Let's see some of your great cursor and icon sets!


- Please message me with a link to your set upon completion. -
If I do not know you are entering a set your set will not be considered.

Good Luck to all!

Has anyone forgotten to submit their August theme set?
Better hurry, it is September now!

You have 24 hours to submit any late entries so get with it!

The theme for September is Prehistoric!
Dinosaurs, mammals, caveman, plants, Ichthyosaurus...
Use your imagination and have fun!

Hope everyone had a wonderful summer!

Hi! :-)

I've sent you a message with the link to my icon set for the "TOTM - december" and the message appeared in my inbox: "From: cdl". *confused*
Now I won't dare to send the message again but I don't know if you received it. Better I ask in the forum, yup.
What's going on there, is the inbox kidding me?
Please help. I don't get it ... :')
