Welcome to JUNE, with a brand new GUEST DOLLIE and a new Elements Challenge!

Good day, friends and visitors of the Dollhouse! Leah here, filling in again for our new mama, Adina, who's very busy now that her wee one, Elijah, is home from the hospital! She's definitely got her hands full, and I know that the Medina family is celebrating now that they're all together. :)

First of all, we're not QUITE finished up with the new Design Dollies stuff, so hopefully, if all goes smoothly, we'll be able to make some announcements tonight. And as we are now in JUNE, this means new prize packs for each challenge category! Adina will be announcing her winner soon, and showing us what's up for grabs for June... In the meantime, let's kick things off with our first June challenge:

We want to see some kind of sports influenced project, with your own creative flair!

We are very happy to introduce our June Guest Dollie, with her first assignment... welcome, VICKI! Here's what she did with this one:

(love those bold colors, and how the pink catches you by surprise!)

And here's a little gorgeously bright something from the very talented Melissa! (for the story behind this photo, you'll have to visit Mel's Blog - hee hee!)

And that's your cue to play along, folks! Do something fun with a sporty theme, and get in on the new June prize action! Remember that your creation must be NEW for our challenge, and you MUST link back to the Dollies blog in your blog post. You have until next MONDAY at midnight EST to get this one linked up, or if you're planning to attempt the TRIFECTA, all entries must be submitted by SUNDAY night at midnight EST.

One last thing - while we LOVE comments and we LOVE to have you all playing along, combining challenges or trying the trifecta, it's necessary to LINK your project to each of the three challenges, but please understand that you do not have to leave the same comment on each post (to let us know you've completed the trifecta!). We are notified via email each time somebody leaves a comment or a link on any of the posts, so it tends to, um, get a SMIDGEN cluttered if the comments are just repeats. We hope you understand, and your unique comments fuel our blog, and they keep us excited about offering these challenges to you every week!

Okay, enough babbling - you have some crafting to do! We'll be back soon, promise!
