Kicking off in 2011

Happy New Year to everyone and welcome back to the Dollhouse.

Before I reveal the first challenge for 2011, I need to announce our BRAND NEW FORMAT for Design Dollies challenges. After a great deal of thought and discussion, we changed up the formula just a little, to make it easier for more people to participate each week.

Each week on MONDAY we will reveal one challenge, which is due on the following SUNDAY. Each week of the month will feature a different challenge format, ie:

1st Monday - COLOUR
2nd Monday - ELEMENT
3rd Monday - SKETCH
4th Monday - TRIFECTA

So... you still get all the fun challenge formats you have come to expect from the Dollies, but there's only one each week - giving you more time to work your magic.

January has five Mondays so we pushed this month's challenges back a week to give our newest Dollies a chance to get comfortable around the Dollhouse. I'm sure you understand, right?

First up then, is the January COLOUR CHALLENGE. There will be a prize for this one, as Leah happens to have stocked up with some hot products over the holidays, so the winner should anticipate a YUMMY batch of Ranger products - and remember, international players are always welcome!

Leah-Dollie is super-duper busy with her 'real life' job at the moment, so I've stepped in (that's me, KarenB) to bring you the colours for a while. I hope you like what I've got for you.

Your January colours are: blue, kraft, white, red

Here's the part where you're inspired by what the Design Dollies have created ~

And from our fabulous Guest Dollie Amy:

Please remember that your project must be newly created, and consist primarily of these colours to be eligible for the prize draw. Link up your creation by midnight EST on Sunday 16th January.
