The Play Date Cafe Challenge PDCC74


Another week...another fabulous challenge!
Here we go!

This week's color host is

She captures the concept of what 
The Cafe is about.....

"I chose this photo because it reminds me of
a summer's afternoon.  I can just imagine....
two friends, sitting around the table
enjoying an afternoon tea of scones
with jam and cream
while catching up on the latest news"


We are super excited to have one of our regular
players in The Cafe as this week's Guest Designer.
We welcome....

Taylor Usry

"I live with my husband and two kids in southern Virginia. I’ve been an avid crafter my whole life, but I’ve only been obsessed with paper crafting for the last 7 years or so.  I cannot remember a time when I didn’t have a crayon, marker, glue stick, ribbon, or something crafty in my hands! I could wander amongst the craft aisles all day every day, and be quite happy. With my hectic schedule, my craft time is my quiet time - so I named my blog The Quiet Moments (http://taylorusry.blogspot.com). I don't know what I'd do without my quiet time each day. It's just me, a cup of tea, and my favorite bits of crafty goodness!
 I’m often asked if I have a particular style – I’d say it’s eclectic. There really isn’t much I don’t like, or anything I won’t try. I love every aspect of the creative world.
 I’m honored to currently be part of several talented design teams, and am so thrilled to be a guest designer here today! "


 Taylor is also a part of the design team that brings
us this week's prize for 'The Cup of the Week'... 


Two Graphic Designers. 
Two cardmaking, stamping, & scrapbooking enthusiasts. 
Two long-time friends. 
Tricia Elizabeth (Lizzie) Ulberg and Meridith Anne Ethington are the owners of Lizzie Anne Designs. As long-time cardmakers and scrapbookers, we are excited about the opportunity to utilize our art backgrounds, business backgrounds, and knowledge of the stamping/scrapbooking industry to design products for the hobby we love dearly. We believe that stamping and scrapbooking products should inspire creativity in all who use them, and this is our goal!

And here is what YOU could win...
Prize valued at $39.95!

All of our designers had a creative time
playing with the designs provided by
Lizzie Anne Designs and we hope you
are inspired to play and purchase!
And as if there isn't already enough
inspiration...several of the girls from
the Lizzie Anne team are playing with
us as well!

Now for some more inspiration from
The Play Date Cafe Design Team.....
