September winner, and another funky color combo!

Hey there, friends and visitors to the Dollhouse! Thanks for dropping by again, and OOOHHH, we have a fabby October in store for you!

Let's kick things off first by saying THANK YOU to everyone who played along with the September Color Challenges - participation was wonderful, even for the colors that were outside many people's comfort zones, and the projects were just incredible. We love that so many talented crafters from around the WORLD (and it's a pretty big place, you know!) come to play along on our little blog. We are forever humbled!

So who was the big winner of this delish batch of BasicGrey goodness? Well a big congrats to the Trifectin' gal who gave us THIS little gem:

Well done, Roz K! You rocked the challenges last week, and kicked the Trifecta in the butt, and as a result, I will be very happy to send you THIS:

Roz, please drop me, Leah, a line at, and I will get these Halloweenie treats out for you!

So are you folks READY?! For the next round of challenges? 'Cuz we Dollies had a ton of fun with this one, your very first OCTOBER CHALLENGE! Here we go....

Red, Blue, Ivory and Brown

Now don't go getting all antsy on me - I KNOW you can do this! Our Dolls made it look easy (and I promise, it was!)... See for yourselves:

Penny rocked another of her famous two-pagers with this mucky little creation:

Chiqui gave us this gorgeous brown page with colors that just LEAP off the screen at you!

I, Leah the Orange, opted for a couple of krafty cards (natch!):

SEE? You CAN do this, people! Lots of manufacturers have JUST the papers in their recent collections to make this work, so now I leave this challenge in your very capable hands and I can't WAIT to see you work your magic. :)

I have a rather impressive pile of goodies to photograph, but I'm afraid I may not be able to do it for a few days, so you'll just have to take my word for it that the prize will be a good one, and well worth the effort for combos such as these. Scouts honor!

Play along with this one by next Sunday, October 10th at midnight EST and your name goes into "the hat" for this month's prize. Your project must be created NEW for the challenge, and you must link back here (at least to the Dollies blog, please!). Also, we've gotten some entries that link to an image rather than a blog post, or to the general blog rather than the specific post. When you publish your post featuring your Dollies challenge card, view that specific post and link THAT addy up below so that we may more easily find your gorgeous projects and leave you some Dollie-love!

Have fun with it, folks, and join us tomorrow for our second Trifecta ingredient! (click the link if you currently have a "what the HECK are you talking about?!" look on your face and you'll get the deets!)
