Camels in a Queue...What?


To see the brand, new
Ippity Summer Collection
click here!



It's that time in the week once again....
The new colors are up for 
The Play Date Cafe Challenge.

Just take a look at these camels!
They crack me up!


We are in week #42 of our challenges which means in just
10 short weeks, we will be celebrating our
one year anniversary!!!
The time has sure flown by, hasn't it?!


I love this DP from the UK company
Papermania (thank you Sarah).
The designs include the lamp
and the wallpaper background.
I layered Spellbinders Labels 4 die cuts
to form a dimensional frame.
And the bit of striped paper is from
Memory Box.
Speaking of Memory Box.....

Guess who is sponsoring the challenge this week?
One of my favorite companies for sure...


And look what you could win...


and that's not all....

So make sure you get on over to 

Never played with us before?
Then you are gonna love it!
Go see what the
world's best design team
have put together to inspire you
with this week's 'color story'.

I'll be back a little later with a
big look at the brand new
Ippity Summer 2010 Collection!
