OK GUYS!  I finally have something worked out.  This is the first time I've put together something that is more open ended.  There are some ideas included in the rubric.  Please read through it carefully BEFORE you tackle anything.  Feel free to shoot me questions. I'll try to answer as soon as I am able.  But suffice to say, anything you do and do well will be considered as long as you have at least followed the spirit of the rubric.
Here is the Link in word form as well as pdf
