Hi everyone, Trina here. Welcome to this fortnights dare!

I want to tell you about the magnificent sponsor we have for you this fortnight......Tarisota Collections. Tarisota are a monthly kit club based in Australia and have the most incredible collections each month.

Tarisota has very generously donated their latest kit which means the lucky winner will receive the November kit! Wow! After seeing a couple of sneak peeks I can say it's absolutely gorgeous. Sneak peeks will be coming on Sunday night. So come back for a look then.....

So the dare this week is all about colour. Or should I say two colours. Yes, we want you to create a LO that has ONLY two colours in it. There are no rules except that you can only use two colours. This may sound easy, but we've actually had quite a bit of fun with this one ourselves as we endeavour to use just two colours! (so many papers have more than two colours in them). We've decided to be kind... you can use a tiny bit of black or white in your journaling or title, but thats it. So put your thinking caps on and take a leaf from one of the contributers here and create a LO based on the colours they have used.

Make sure you have your dare LO linked to the comments section by 7th Nov. We'll announce the winner on the 8th.

So are you gonna join us? Dare you to!

Trina - Pink and Orange

I just love this colour combo. Its so bright and fresh, but can give a real feeling of peace or relaxation should you want that too. Unfortunately due to my scan, the flocked vellum looks a little green/brown, but be assured, it is orange! LOL.

Carol - Pink and Green

Carol is our very talented guest designer this month and here is her version of our dare. Thanks so much Carol. It looks great......

Jo My colour choices were orange and teal - I love how these two colours just pop together - great colours for boy or girl pages, but I chose to do a boy layout this time which is also a challenge for me! I had so much fun figuring out how to stick to just the two colours but was really pleased with the end result. Like Trina I found some of the colours were a little off after scanning but rest assured that what looks brown is in fact orange and what looks grey is in fact teal irl.

Donna - Green and Blue I love green & blue together, especially using a yellowed green to keep the combination from becoming too cold.


I chose Red and a tourquoise blue. Sharon:
I chose lime and orange - put your sunglasses on!! This is my very gorgeous niece.
And I couldn't stop at one. I chose red and gold to FINALLY scrap last year's Christmas photos:


This wasn't as easy as you think. I've used lime green and red. I wanted to add white or black lines and coloured ribbon and maybe just one more colour LOL. But I am happy with the result. I dare you to have a go at only 2 colours with no black or white lines and no other colour. Look forward to seeing what you come up with.


This was TOUGH! I had to fight afew impulses LOL.Ive used yellow and green. 'Your Love is my Salvation' is a song lyric i have been wanting to use for awhile now.


Green and Purple, usually 2 of my favourite colour combinations. I just didn't realise how difficult it would be to ONLY use them. Great Dare, a real challenge.


Eggplant / Aubergine and Baby Blue - weird combination buy I found inspiration in this cool photo of my Nana and Pop - look at that dress! This dare was just right for the photo as it kept me to two colours without overwhelming the photo.

Funny thing as I rang my Nana (87 yrs old) to confirm the year this photo was taken she tells me she still has the dress! - I have to go and take a photo of the layout and the dress now!

Hi what a great challenge I have done two layouts one is green and orange while the other is pink and white. Didnt find it to difficult to stick to the two colour theme though there are different shades of the colours.
They are on my blog

Hi Guys

Haven't 'dared' for soooo long, and I kind of liked this dare so thought I may as well enter. I have my dare on SBD's gallery. Follow this link:

Just squeezed in. Layout is now on my blog. Definitely harder than I thought to only use two colours. The journaling is done on graph paper that I have painted with diluted green paint. It doesn't show too well on my blog, but I can email you the pic if need be :o)

Not sure if I have mine in on time either - but it's done and on my blog. Was kinda fun to do - if not challenging, but that's what it's all about right?
