Celebrating 3 Years at The Play Date Cafe !

This sentiment says it all !

We are celebrating over at

Where has the time gone ? ? ?

Just three short years ago, my UK bestie
Sarah Anderson and I shared this challenge with the world
and we never looked back !
{by the way . . . she will be joining us on Monday, Oct 22nd}
There have been many, MANY changes since then
but the challenge remains the same.
To interpret the colors as YOU see them
and enter whatever type of project you'd like.

With celebration comes more changes beginning
with a whole new look !

We would love for you to take our brand new badge
and place it on your blog with a link to The Cafe.
During the next 5 days, our designers will be visiting blogs
watching for our badge.  Randomly, we will hand out prizes
when we see it.  Help us reach 2,000 followers and even
more prizes will be awarded !

Along with that, we have amazing sponsors who will be
sharing 15 prizes for our weekly winner & honorable mentions.
You'll find all these details and even MORE SURPRISES
over at The Cafe.

This week's colors are some of the boldest we've ever had !
I chose to take a very simple route putting them together using flowers
from Prima & a beautiful gem flourish from Zva Creative.
The sentiment is from FarmHouse Paper Company.

I hope you will make plans to join us for each of the next five days
as we celebrate.  We would love to have you *LIKE* us over
on Facebook and follow along on Twitter @ThePDCC

I want to say THANK YOU to all who have supported our challenge.
Whether you are a brand new, a long-time player
or just peek in for some inspiration . . .
It's all possible because of YOU !

Project Recipe:
Patterned Paper: Rondelle by Prima from
Stamps: Sugar Hill Autumn by Farmhouse Paper Company
Embellishments: gem flourish by Zva Creative
