The Play Date Cafe Challenge PDCC34

It is 'Color Splash' week here in 
The Play Date Cafe.
The design team enjoy hearing your
feedback each week and we know that
the 'color splash' challenge
is one of your all-time favorites.
'Color Splash' 
is simply black & white with a  
'bit' of color.
The shade choices here are YOUR INTERPRETATION.

Here is just a 'taste' of inspiration to get
you started by this week's senior DT host,

We are happy to welcome back

as this week's sponsor 
and HERE is what you might win...
We also welcome the owner of Limelight
Mandy Cheshire 
as our Celebrity Guest Designer.

"We are SO glad you
'stepped into the Limelight'!
My husband Drew and I are commited
to bringing you the best the stamping and
scrapbooking world have to offer
at a great price.  We are constantly seeking
out new and exciting products.
Please stop by our website and take a look
around.  We are sure you will find what you
need to inspire your creativity and create
beautiful projects."

Your design team host for this week's challenge is
Let's get a 'glimpse' inside
her creative space....

"My studio is in the back portion of our house.  It's a
nice-sized room with an 'L-shaped' countertop and
cabinets overhead for plenty of storage.  I also have
a wonderful cabinet on my wall that my father-in-law
built for even more storage.
I do tend to keep things out on my workspace that I
use daily, which sometimes (well, most of the time)
only leaves me a 10" x 10" workspace.
After all, a studio is supposed to be messy, right...
it's a creative place!
I did however, clean up my space for you,
so come by and take a look at where I create."
