It's My Last Day with The Dollies!

That makes me a little sad, but it has been SO much fun to play along with these girls! I have loved every bit of it!

And let me tell you...these girls like to send you out with a challenge, apparently! LOL! As it turns out my last challenge for this month was a color challenge. Well, this was a good thing because I happen to really enjoy the color challenges! They are tons of fun. BUT...what I DO NOT particularly enjoy is working with colors I rarely use due to the simple fact that I generally consider them to be, well, icky colors. Lavender, tan, and navy. That's what I had to use. Together. Now, don't get me wrong...I like using tan. It's a great neutral. I don't mind tan at all. It's those other two that I shy away from. HA! Navy isn't a bad color, so to speak, but I am more of a blue girl, less of a navy girl. I find that it can be a challenge to get navy to play well with others. And Lavender. Well, that's in the purple family. Enough said.

Just say'n.

SO...when the Design Dollies put forth this list of colors, I was, well, skeptical to say the least. BUT...I took that challenge and I decided to jump in with both feet.

Guess what?

Those three colors actually play REALLY WELL together! For reals! Check this out:

Warm Fuzzies

CUTENESS!!!! No, seriously, though, you guys. Isn't it a great color combo???!!!

WHO THE HECK KNEW? For reals. I was a bit shocked. But shocked with a dose of cute is SUCH a good thing! Just say'n.


I even avoided the temptation to use tan as the dominant color and tiny itty bitty bits of the other two colors. YAY!


AND...Owly cuteness all around! For reals, you guys! That's good stuff!

SO...for a chance to challenge yourself and a chance to win a GREAT PRIZE go check out the Design Dollies color challenge and jump in! It's too much fun!
