Design Dollies have a new Color Challenge for you!


good morning, friends! hope you had a fantabulatious weekend and did lots of relaxing or crafting, or both! we Dollies have been busy, as usual, and while there's no time left to play along with last week's PRIMARY color challenge, there's more fun in store for you today!

i hope last week's challenge wasn't TOO challenging - i'm not a big fan of the primary colors myself for a project, but it was fun to mix it up a bit and try something new!

today, may i present....


this combination seemed to come a little easier to us, and i dare say our Dollies have done some BRILLIANT work! (i'm sure you'll agree!)
check out our bidnizz....

an EXTRA contribution from our fabulous Guest Design Dollie, Karen:

a negative space masterpiece from our in-house artiste, Kristy:

more ball trim (am i getting predictable?) from your gracious hostess, Leah the Orange:

Nicole managed to throw it down, even though her dog gave birth to a litter of BEAUTIFUL puppies - she STILL found time to create something gorgeous!

Heidi couldn't resist, even though she didn't hafta (and it's FAB, so i'm glad she did!):

so, there.

fuschia and pale yellow. these must be the PREDOMINANT colors in your project to be eligible for the January prize... that reminds me, i still haven't shown you what's up for grabs, have i? oops!
