YUM! new colors to challenge you! HOT PRIZE!

Some new colors for you today, which means the TRIFECTA has closed (but you still have time if you want to play along with the Elements or Sketch challenges from last week!), and the ingredients have begun for THIS week's TRIFECTA! (Not sure what the heck I'm talking about? Everyone's doing it - read about it HERE and get in on the action!)

I'm SO impressed with what you crafty folks did with last week's color combo! Purple seemed to be the scary one for many of you, and, like me (and the rest of the Dollies, in fact), you ended up loving it in the combo, and TOTALLY rocking it! Thank you all for playing along! You'll all be entered to win THIS following delicious treat from Dolce Scrapbook:

How's about a closeup or two? :)

HOT, right? :) Here's a little bit about our awesome August sponsor:

Juliana Santana is the owner of this fantastic eBay shop; she is originally from Portugal, but lives in Salt Lake City, Utah. Her shop has some WONDERFULLY priced and GORGEOUS kits, embellishment packs and handmade creations with tons of variety and lines from everyone's favorite manufacturers - Prima, Pink Paislee, My Mind's Eye, BasicGrey, BoBunny, Graphic 45, 7 Gypsies and more! Juliana ships worldwide, and she also has a ton of product ON SALE right now, so drop by and see what's up for grabs!

SO. You're gonna wanna play along with this one, too, if you wanna increase your chances of winning! Here's this week's Color Challenge:


This means, of course, that your project should focus around these colors (it is not enough for the colors to merely be PRESENT). Accent colors are acceptable, but they cannot take away from this palette... Examples to hopefully inspire you? Check 'em out...

Karen doctored up these awesome envelopes for
something a little more funky and customizable
(the bill collectors are not worthy!):

I, Leah the Orange, made a mini-tag card for my best friend:

and Metal_Minish yummed it up with this fabby, shabby page:

Yeah, I can see a lot of potential for this color scheme, and I KNOW you'll all be wowing us with your gorgeous creations! Play along by SUNDAY, August 15th at midnight EST, link up your NEWLY-CREATED projects, and be sure to link BACK to the Dollhouse in your post, and you might be the lucky August winner! Can't wait to see what you'll do with this one! :)
