Play Date Cafe Challenge #154 and 3rd Anniversary Celebration!

The Play Date Cafe Challenge Blog is 3 years old this week! Wow! And in honor of the anniversary, there will be lots of giveaways and fun!

Here's a look at the bold color story:

And my project, an 8x10 canvas:
I love how it turned out!  (As usual, I used a bunch of paints and sprays, including some brand new sprays from Heidi Swapp. The houndsooth paper is actually tissue paper that was used to wrap my order from the Paper Issues etsy store. The typewriter key stamp is from Stampin Up.)

So, you will want to check out The Play Date Cafe blog every day during Oct 18-22, as there will be new inspiration and PRIZES daily!

Our blog is getting a makeover, too, and here is a look at the new badge style!


 Ways to get a chance at winning one of our many prizes:
-participate in the weekly challenge, and make a project of your choice using the color story
-post the "I Play" badge for anyone who loves PDCC on your  blog and link back to The Play Date Cafe
-and make sure you are following the blog through google. We are close to 2,000 followers and we would love to hit 2k just in time for our big celebration :)
