Your color host for this week is

"This is another really fun photo I snagged from
my friend Polly Hood's blog, Counting Your Blessings.
I loved the colors that were just 'barely there'
against the back drop of silver playing pieces of
the Classic Monopoly Game.
This week, I challenge you to use silver
as part of your entry with the other lovely 
shades of pink and blue."

This week's special guest designer represents our
sponsorship as well.
