July's "The Fun Stuff" prize, and a new color challenge for ya!

GOOD MORNING, friends and visitors of The Dollhouse! Welcome to another Monday - it's gonna be a hot one in South Jersey, so I think we're headed down to the shore for some ocean breeze and relaxation (much needed, thankyouverymuch!). :)

Before I show you what the Dollies have done this week in an effort to wow inspire the pants off you, HERE is the prize package for my July Color Challenges! I call this batch "The Fun Stuff"!
(click to enlarge!)

This month's Color Challenge "The Fun Stuff" prize consists of...
BasicGrey "Eva" 6x6 pad - 36 sheets
Tyggereye Art pear and tiny heart hand carved stamps
Prima Say it in Crystals - 12 pcs
Prima Say it in Studs - 12 pcs
K & Company "Life's Journey" Metal Art alphabet - 26 pcs

Cloud 9 Design "Wood Stone Collection" Eggplant Wood tile stickers - 8 pcs
Robin's Nest Dewdrops - 25 pcs each in gold, teal and magenta

Some of these things are my absolute FAVE crafty items (they don't all appear in my projects, but I use 'em for so many OTHER things, too!)

SO, play along with ANY of my Color Challenges this month and you could win the loot!

Thanks to those who played along with last week's Color Challenge - the black, pink and red combo might have been a little frightening, so while we had some GORGEOUS submissions, I hope more people decide to try their hand at TODAY'S combo!

Here's your recipe for this week:
(that means not a LOT of red, folks, just some snazzy red accents, 'kay?)

And just take a look at THESE beauties!

DANA created this ROCKIN' page with an amazing guitar accent!

KAREN created this - ahem! - cheeky page for her cocktail recipe mini-album:

I, Leah the Orange, finally scrapped some pictures
from 1998 into a mini - here are a couple of excerpts:

PENNY brought us some whimsy with this adorable (and heartwarming!) page:

So there you have it, folks! Lots of variety here today, and hopefully something that will get your creative gears turnin'... Play along for a chance at the above prize, and make sure you link up your NEWLY CREATED projects below by Sunday, July 25th at midnight EST. Don't forget, you MUST link back to The Dollhouse in your blog post. Have fun crafting, and we'll be back tomorrow with another Elements Challenge, sponsored by Scrap Attack Scrapbooking (who have a BIG sale going right now!)! :D
