October Elements Challenges have kicked off!

Hey there folks! Leah here, filling in for our Adina-Dollie, who can't come to the phone - er - INTERNET right now, but she'll be back soon with our September Elements Challenges prize winner, I promise! Thanks for your patience, dear friends! We know you all understand that life gets in the way of our crafty fun sometimes... ;)

Thanks for all of your participation and gorgeous inspiration in our September Elements Challenges - we LOVED seeing everyone's entries, and, as always, we are humbled by the attention you give our little blog here. :)

Let's kick off the October Elements Challenges with something necessary, shall we? Ready? How about joining me in a little song......

"it's beginning to look a lot like..."

Yep, you guessed it! The Design Dollies are doing it all up HOLIDAY-STYLE! Let's see what wonderful Christmas/Holiday projects you can create - and remember it can be a card, scrapbook page, altered item, decoration, frame or other altered thing... Whatever floats your boats! We know we have friends all over the globe and from a variety of backgrounds (religious or otherwise), so anything to do with the holidays is absolutely welcome!

For a little inspiration, and maybe to get those holiday juices flowing (because quite frankly, I am TOTALLY struggling to get these projects rollin'!), here's what's been going on in the Studio at the Dollhouse...

Dana-Dollie made this BEAUTIFUL Christmas journal album -what a GREAT way to preserve the season's memories (and maybe look back to see what you might want to do DIFFERENTLY when next Christmas rolls around!):

Our Norwegian Nerdy-Dollie, Metal_Minish, brings us a very non-traditional Christmas TREE ("Jul" being Swedish for "Christmas") - in his very cute, unique and quirky style:

(And Adina-Dollie may be back to share her crafty little bidnizz when she's able to visit again, so watch for that!)

We Dollies are all about doing things a bit DIFFERENTLY, so we'd love to see what fabby and unique things you're going to show us! Link your projects below by next Monday, October 11th at midnight EST and you'll be entered to win a little something yummy from our sponsor, Scrap-A-Doodle-Doo!
