Kickin' things off with a new team and a new challenge!

Morning, craftily Odd friends! Hope your week's been going well - we Odd Girls have certainly been looking forward to this day, and we're glad it's finally arrived! The new term has begun, and you got to meet all of the new Odd Girls last week, and we shared some sneaks of the brand new digi release, and today you get to see those same digis in action!

We're so grateful so many of you joined us for our Thank You challenge, and for helping us give our departing Odd Girls a fabulous send-off. It's always bittersweet when we do the whole "out with the old, in with the new" thing, and while we certainly enjoyed the last six months, we're also looking forward to the next wonderful six!

So let's get this party started with a new challenge, shall we? We know there are a lot of you who LOVE your color challenges, so we're going to give you LOTS of options for this one!

See this here thingamabob? Read carefully!
I'm sure you all know how useful the color wheel can be when you're looking for paint for a room, or trying to coordinate your curtains with your carpet, or playing around with something in graphic design.

Today, we are challenging you to choose two COMPLIMENTARY colors for your projects! (this is the part where you have to read the deets) To be specific, two colors OPPOSITE one another on the wheel, like YELLOW and PURPLE - we don't mind if you add in a couple of shades, but if you choose BLUE and ORANGE, for example, you should stick to BLUE-GREEN, BLUE-VIOLET, RED-ORANGE or YELLOW-ORANGE for your additional hues. Careful not to be tossin' in some RED or YELLOW, or that won't work for our challenge. (we'll make the exception, of course, for skin and hair)

Wanna see how the pros do it? ;) Check out our very first challenge assignments from the brand new Odd Girls, using the brand new Back To School release, now available at!

And there you have it! Fantastic challenge debut for this team, no? :) Well we hope you are inspired to play along, and submit your Complimentary Colors for your chance to win a lovely little digi prize from! Let us know if you have any questions, and be sure to link up below, using the link to your post, rather than your general blog, and don't forget to link back to the Some Odd Girl challenge blog in your own post.
