Dynamic Duos and the Happiest Place on Earth's Saturday morning and I've got a couple of exciting things going on today! 

1)  There is a new challenge blog called Dynamic Duos making their debut today.  This is a weekly card challenge and here is how they are breaking up by week. I got this right from their blog.

The challenge is divided into weekly "themes"...

Week 1-Bold and Sassy-bright, happy colours

Week 2-Subtly Yours-soft, romantic colours

Week 3-Black Tie-one colour plus black and a dessert option

Week 4-Monochromatic-same colours in different hues (light/dark)

Week 5-Mix and Match-we choose one colour and you add the other colour to ours to create your own "Dynamic Duo".

I'm excited about this blog because sounds like a ton of fun playing with the "themes" each week, and second because I'm the guest designer for their very first challenge!!!  They held a facebook contest to see which colors would be the first used and they picked mine!!! 
Here is the challenge cute is that!!! 

And here are a couple pictures of the card/gift card holder that I made. I used lime green and aqua and then neutrals of black and white. I'm really excited to be the first guest designer and I know I will be playing along with these challenges on a regular basis.  You all should go check out them out over at Dynamic Duos and play along with them!

2) In little less than an hour, we are heading south....all the way to the California Coast!!  My sister and her family, me and the husband and my kids, and our parents are renting a house in Huntington Beach for the week.  I'm so looking forward to a few days with a beautiful change of scenery (beach) and for fun (Disneyland)  I think I'm not going to want to come home!!

Happy Weekend to ya'll. :D
