Here's some inspiration from the Dollielicious Team...

YUM. I love Grungeboard something ferocious, and these Harlequin Elements are HOT! There are flourishes, skulls, arrows, clocks... So much smelly goodness to play with! Seriously - have you smelled Grungeboard? Adina-Dollie has a weird obsession for it because of the smell! Oh, and because it's SUPER fun to play with. And I guess the rest of the prize pack is pretty nifty too. ;)
Okay, /end tangent!
Today's Color Challenge is another earthy one! We're leaving February with a couple of my favourite colours, hands down....
ORANGE, BROWN and A NEUTRAL (black, white, ivory, kraft, whatever):
Get a load of THESE!
Our amazing Guest Design Dollie, Sarah, KNOCKED MY SOCKS OFF with this altered carry case. Wouldn't it be perfect for a picnic, or to store some vintage trims or findings?
Our funky Dollie, Heidi, retells the classic with this adorable layout (and I'm torn, because I LOVE the colours, but I hate bananas!). Her son makes me lullz!
And I, your hostess, Leah the Orange, wanted to play with my new stuff - the Spellbinders die, my Stampers Anonymous sentiments (thanks, t!m) and my Martha Stewart butterfly punch.
So let's cut to the chase, shall we? Better start your engines, crafters! You have until next SUNDAY, February 28th at midnight EST to get your entries in before the February challenges CLOSE! Projects MUST be created new for our challenges, and don't forget to link back to the Dollies in your blog post!
AND, if you are still on the fence, quit dilly-dallying! You wanna be a Design Dollie?! Check out our DESIGN TEAM CALL - we're taking submissions through March 10th, and we can't wait to see your amazing talent! :)
P.S. - if you have a moment, please swing on by Sketchy Thursdays to vote for their March guest design team member! not only is our Dollie, Heidi, one of the founders, but it's an AWESOME blog and Leah is one of the final five this month! :)

Some inspiration from our dollies...
Monday, February 15, 2010
Before I get myself ready to SHOP (!!!), I have a brand new color combination for you folks... And out of curiosity, how many of you are THRILLED and RELIEVED to finally get away from the Valentine's theme? (I am!)
Went with a slightly different combo for this one:
LAVENDER, GREY and WHITE/IVORY.
Soft and subtle, but can still pack a punch! Observe:
Adina-Dollie (OOOHHH, I just LOVE that gorgeous frame, and that hand-stitching!)
Nicole-Dollie (That flower? The lace? Those cute chipboard accents on the left? FANTASTIC!)
Myself, Leah the Orange Dollie
And there ya be, my friends! We can't wait to see what gorgeous, stunning creations you'll be linking up this week! Remember that as the Elements and Sketch challenges are revealed this week, you can combine any of these to enter for the prize draws! Projects MUST be created new for our challenges, and you must LINK back to us in your blog post. The deadline for this one (and for any of the combinations you may attempt) is next SUNDAY, February 21st at midnight EST.
And in case you forgot, here's the prize for the Colors Challenges this month:
Have fun, and happy craftin'! (Now I'm going shoppin'!)
