Design Dollies welcome you to MARCH! new color challenge!

HAPPY MONDAY, crafters, and welcome to MARCH!

it's always so exciting to kick off a new month at Design Dollies, and March is HUGE! first of all, if you haven't caught it yet (despite our countless reminders - hee hee!), we are having another DOLLIE CALL! there's still plenty of time to get your info to us, with three of your favourite projects to show your style... and for those of you who are on the fence about applying, we'd love to hear from you! whether your forte' is scrappin', cardmakin', art alterin', art journallin' or macrame' (i kid on that last one), if you think you've got what it takes to be a Design Dollie, then you probably do! :)

CLICK HERE FOR THE DOLLIE CALL DETAILS! we had to bid a very fond farewell to Sarah, our AMAZING February Guest Dollie, who brought us loads of gorgeous projects and who will CONTINUE to inspire us all, as she's been a regular participant in our challenges from our blog's inception. Sarah, we have LOVED having you in the Dollhouse, and we're so pleased to have been able to share your stunning work with the blogosphere! THANK YOU, Dollie!

and with the start of a new month brings a brand new Guest Design Dollie... here's another creative and brilliantly talented girlie who's been playing with us since "GO!" - please join us in welcoming Kate! we love her work, and we're sure she's going to inspire the socks off you, too! (so we hope you've got a pair of slippers nearby!)

without further ado, i bring you the very first March Color Challenge! here's what we're giving you to work with:

these need to be the PREDOMINANT colours in your project - add some neutrals where you have to, but keep any other colours to a minimum.... (your project may HAVE these colours in it somewhere, but that does not mean it represents the challenge well, know what i mean?)

some examples from the Dollies...

our March Guest Dollie, the amazing Kate!

our Mommy with the bun in the oven, Adina!

me! (Leah the Orange):

and the very funky Heidi!

so there you have it! did March come in like a lion or a lamb for you? are you going to play along with this challenge, or wait until the Elements Challenge is revealed tomorrow, or the Sketch Challenge on Thursday? either way, we can't wait to see what you'll do with it!

your project MUST be created new for this challenge, and you must link back to us on your blog post. please be sure to add your creation to Mr. Linky no later than next SUNDAY, March 7th, at midnight EST for your chance to win a yummy prize pack!

i'll be back in a little bit with our February winner, plus a whole new batch of goodies to show you for the March prize! :)
