You have your creative freedom here, you are the experts. We'd like a bright, young, vibrant and funky design. (sorry to keep repeating myself).
Things like pinks and pastels etc, although I'll leave this to you.
Please bare in mind that this is an Ecommerce site and the usual sections are required. A product menu, a shopping cart, a logo and a menu for information pages.
One site we love is http://www.clogau.co.uk/ although that is an adult style site where as we want a young persons one, but not too childish.
Any questions please feel free to ask me, I'll answer them ASAP.
Also please understand we are on UK time, but I will try my hardest to answer questions as soon as they come in. Also I will be working late most nights so overseas entrants please feel free to ask and I'm never usually that far away from the computer.
We can pay in a number of way, please ask. Obviously PayPal, Bank Transfer etc. Anymore just ask and I see if we can do it for you. (sorry only realise now that 99designs charges up front so I assume you'll arrange payment with them).
Some images that may help you are here, please feel free to use any of these.
