The Play Date Cafe Challenge PDCC60

It's that time again!
Everyone's favorite challenge....

Color Splash Challenge!

The splash this time is Yellow
 We love it that YOU love this challenge
and we are so excited to see what you come up
with using 
black and white with a splash of yellow!

Cafe News.......

We have officially made the difficult decisions
and are happy to announce that the 
new Design Team going into 2011
has been chosen!
We are also excited to share that we will be
doing a big reveal within the next week.
Each day, you will be able to stop by The Cafe
for a 
'meet & greet' 
with each new designer.
Judging from all the comments and emails
we've received, we know you are excited too!

Your host for this week is 
Senior Designer Julie Ranae....

"I knew it was 'color splash' time here
in The Cafe and although we are all in
full-on holiday mode, I thought it would be
fun to change things up a bit with a
non-traditional Christmas color.
Even the photo reflects anything but Christmas,
but I really hope to see a few 'holiday' projects
using black, white and yellow...have fun!"
