Challenge Number One, a DT Call, and some CANDY!!!!

****BLOG CANDY NOW CLOSED 9/1/09 2:34pm EST ****

First to celebrate the launch of my very own challenge blog, I'm offering the following [small] candy!!! You know the drill: follow, comment here, and link back (sidebar is fine). I will announce a winner on September 2nd!

Second for the very first challenge we're going to use:


Here is my entry:

**DT Call CLOSED** And last but not least, you can't have a challenge blog without a design team. So I'm looking for DT entries. Quite honestly I'd like the same design team I already have... is that bias of me??? A few others might be good as well. The design team members only requirement is to participate in these challenges. I will let the team know ahead of time of the following weeks requirements, and obviously you must have a blog.

So here's how to apply for all of the above:
for the candy: just leave a comment, follow and post a link back
for the dt: send me an email ... pennyandbryan [at] gmail [dot] com **CLOSED**
for the challenge: use Mr. Linky with a link back to your project (not your whole blog)

I hope this post isn't too complicated to understand. I tend to complicate things, I've no idea why!!!!
