Kickin' it off with the Design Dollies!

well HI!

we had a feeling you'd be back, and we've been WAITING!

seriously, we have counted down the days, and we are absolutely THRILLED that October 1st has arrived, because we have SO MUCH to share with you!

first, thank you very much to those who have been following and encouraging us. if it weren't for your positive words and enthusiasm, we may have been less determined, and this might not be happening. but it is, and it's gonna be FANTASTIC! :)

second, you probably heard through the grapevine that there might be some yummy candy to win, and you heard right! how's about this little package?




a Basic Grey CUPCAKE 12x12 pack, some gorgeous flowers and Sew Cute papers from Prima, a little something from Stamping Bella, bit o'bling, bit o'ribbon - all combined to make a giant YUM sandwich!

well we want to get to know you, our splendid followers, and we are quite sure you'll get to know a whole lot about us along this new journey. SOOOOO, we have put together a little quiz, and anyone who leaves a comment here with the correct answers will be entered to win our launch candy, which will be drawn on Friday, October 16th.

at first, we thought we'd make you work hard for it, but we decided that might not be as much fun, and we really DO want you to stick around! so if you aren't sure of an answer, it can most certainly be found simply by clicking on a Dollie's picture on the left sidebar (which will bring you to the bios) or the links on the RIGHT sidebar to our profiles and personal blogs. we promise you won't have to look too hard!

now then. let's play a game, shall we?

here are your questions:

on Kristy:
1. Besides scrapbooking, what is this Dollie's minor obsession?
2. What is this Dollie's scrappy wish?
3. How long has this Dollie been scrapping?
4. What other Design Teams is this dollie on?
5. What does this Dollie love to listen to while scrapping?

on Adina:
1. What absolutely amazing book is this Dollie teaching RIGHT now?
2. WHICH dollie on the masthead best represents THIS traditional Dollie (1, 2, or 3)?
3. Which literary heroine best represents this Dollie's character/identity? :)
4. Which author is the inspiration for this Dollie's blog theme?
5. Who designed this Dollie's amazing chibi at the bottom of her blog? :)

on Leah the Orange:
1. What kind of pet does this Dollie have?
2. From which country does this Dollie hail?
3. What FAB shoes does this Dollie love best?
4. This Dollie’s favourite movies include two which share a key word. What are those two movies?
5. What is this Dollie's favourite colour?

okay! now run and do your homework! but make sure you're following us (that gets you another entry), and link up our launch candy in a blog post or in your sidebar (yet another entry), ANNNNND if you want to grab our blinkie and post THAT, bonus entry for you!


OH, and there's more!
you wanna know what the Design Dollies are all about? we're three good friends with the same passion for crafting (often with paper, but the sky's the limit!), quirky personalities, and an itch to INSPIRE AND MOTIVATE. we love to see others sharing our love for art, and we plan to push your mojo to the max! THREE challenges per week! (yes, really) we will each host a regular challenge, and if you play along, you can win awesome prizes. we'll explain how the challenges work when our FIRST challenge posts on MONDAY! it's a lot to remember, so feel free to ask as many questions as you'd like, and take NOTHING for granted. :)

so good luck in the candy draw - make sure you've left all comments by Thursday, October 15th, midnight EST. spread the word that the DESIGN DOLLIES ARE HERE! and come on back for a visit on Monday for our very first challenge!

later, taters!

(p.s. - Leah's got candy!)

    2. to have more room
    3. over 4 years
    4. Guttergirlz?
    5. the freebeer and hotwings morning show

    Adina:
    1.Wuthering heights
    2. doll 3 because she's traditional and likes lace, but no1 could also fit since it's more sepia/vintage look.

    4. jane austen
    5. kristy dalman

    Leah the orange:
    1. a kitty
    2. Canada
