JUNE WINNER and brand new color challenge for JULY!

Happy July, friends of the Dollhouse! For those of you who celebrated your country's big days, I hope you enjoyed them and ate lots of yummy stuff with friends and family! :) I wasn't able to properly enjoy Canada Day (in true Canuck fashion), but I did have some Fourth of July fun with friends and good food, so that made up for it, to some extent. :D (and today, off to the gym!)

So you wanna know who won the June Color Challenge prize pack? Well we had a TON of fabulous entries, so a huge thank you to everyone who played along! I hope you'll be equally inspired this month, and I'll be back later today to show you the prize pack....

But now, a big Dollie congrats goes out to
ROXY ROLLA, of Roxy's Creative Hot Spot! She gave us THIS gorgeous creation at the beginning of June (I absolutely LOVE those papers, and of COURSE, the Dymo tape!):

Roxy, when you return from your holidays, please drop me, Leah, a line at with your mailing address, and I'll be shipping this batch of treats off to you:

Now with that little bit of bidnizz out of the way, it's time to kick the Color Challenges off for JULY... Let's start with a combination that totally turned out to be one of my faves to date!

(I'd give you a swatch for this one, but I think it's pretty straightforward)

Here's what our fabulously talented "staff" (hee hee) have done with this yummy combo....

Karen gobbled up the challenge and gave us THIS amazingly beautiful, happy page (dig that cardie, Karen, and those little green clips ROCK!)

Our sweet nerdy fella, Metal_Minish, gave us a positively SCRUMPTIOUS ode to SUSHI (YUM!), with some seriously awesome doodlin' action!

Your Color Challenge hostess, Leah the Orange (moi!), went for bright and simple with some tasty Basic Grey goodies and some AWESOME orange trim (thank you, Kimmy!):

ANNNNND, an extra tasty treat from our clever lit-chick, Adina, with yet another BEAUTIFUL thank you card... Don't you LOVE the crackled element with that happy Sass paper?!

And there ya be, sweet friends! Lots of tasty eye candy, a new month kicked off, a winner, a new prize, and a horrible heatwave in store for South Jersey! (I'm totally staying inside all week!)

Get started on the challenge - you have until SUNDAY, July 11th at midnight EST to play along with this one. We'll have the new Elements Challenge tomorrow, another new Sketch Challenge on Thursday, and you are welcome to try your hand at the trifecta by combining all three of these challenges once Thursday rolls around! Just remember, we must have your submissions by SUNDAY NIGHT, and you'll get entered to win all THREE prizes for this month! Link up below, be sure to link back to us in your blog post, and GOOD LUCK!

(Stay tuned TOMORROW, when we have a little surprise with our Elements Challenge - we're VERY excited about this!)
