Today is the inaugural challenge at The Dynamic Duos!  Every Saturday a new challenge will be featured with a dynamic color duo.  This weeks duo is Pool Party and Lucky Limeade.

A new challenge starts every Saturday and you have until noon (PDT) on Thursday to submit your entry.

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

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".

The challenge guidelines:
1.    Any project is welcome...paper crafts, scrapbooking, digital, or crafts...
