The Play Date Cafe Challenge PDCC85

It's a new chapter beginning for The Play Date Cafe!

Beginning this week, you will be truly inspired as our
Color Story Coordinator and designer,
Jaclyn Miller
brings you each week's color story inspiration.

Blueberry...Cream...Dusty Rose

 Each week, Jaclyn gives our Design Team the
general idea behind the colors using 
her own color interpretations
and we will share them with you as a guideline.

It has always been the goal of our challenge to
not dictate specific colors
so you can use your own interpretation in creativity.
We guarantee you that we keep that in mind when
we are judging our favorite entries.  We know that
not all will see exactly the same colors...colors can
vary from desktop monitors to laptop screens.

We are so happy to welcome one of our favorite players 
in The Cafe as this week's Guest Designer

"Hi there! My name is Anya Schrier, and I am so excited to join you as this week’s Guest Designer for The Play Date CafĂ©!  Married to my high school sweetheart and mom to two doggies, we call Pittsburgh home.  I like to bake, bird watch, walk, and scuba dive.  I have been stamping off and on for years, but really started to get serious about five years ago.  I am proud to serve on a few Design Teams and share my crafty ventures on my blog,  I have a passion for crafting, and I get a creative kick by participating in challenges like this one – thanks for having me this week!"
