Just Because...The Play Date Cafe Challenge



Springtime brings on the 'pastel-girl' in me...
I am this week's host for...


I snagged this fun photo from my friend
Polly Hood's blog, Counting Your Blessings,
with her blessing, of course!
I love the faded colors on this Monopoly board
with the beautifully recognizable
silver playing pieces.

Which piece do you always play with?
Me?  I am always the dog.


Using silver, pink and blue
and my lovely set of stamps from this week's sponsor,
I headed down the CAS highway!

And just who provided these terrific stamps?

and we are so happy to welcome the owner of
Wplus9 Dawn Woleslagle, as this week's guest designer.

Here's a quick-click list of who else you will find
designing on the team with me:

The Play Date Cafe and check out our
gallery of designers and this week's
terrific prize from Wplus9 Designs.

Before you go, leave a comment and let me know
your favorite Monopoly playing piece!
