    Thanks, can't wait to look at everyone's. It appears the old gal (me) took a slightly different twist from the neon's. I have been as nervous a an 8 year old going to Valentine's Day at school in her new velvet skirt (oh that was me too!). Just hoping I don't look ridiculous among all you young lovelies! Also, your button is on my blog here :http://stillblondeafteralltheseyears.com/blogs-i-follow/
    !!!! Fun!!!

    I loved the idea of the challenge, the only thing is that the requirement banner is kind of large, could you make a smaller one? I'd love to participate but it's actually to big… :(

    • http://stillblondeafteralltheseyears.com Still blonde after a

      You can go into the html and adjust it down. I did.

      • http://contra-moi.blogspot.com Rosa

        Thanks! But I just added the new button! It's smaller… :)

    Awesome! I have been on color block mode since Friday… and because I ran out of errands (stay-home-mommy most of the time here) I am linking my Friday post… looking at the colorful links is putting me in a happy mood! :) Glad to have found your blog this morning…

    Hey Kristina, Maybe have as one of the requirements that they turn off their friggin' captcha! …or just suggest it really sweetly in a perfect PSS kind of way! I commented on everyone's and at least half had on captcha.

    • http://prettyshinysparkly.com Kristina

      Hi there – I appreciate the commenting but unfortunately that's just a really unrealistic requirement. I'm not going to tell people how to run their blogs. But I'm sure everyone knows that captcha is annoying! It's a Blogger thing, unfortunately.

    Kristina, I was only kidding! TCB

    • http://prettyshinysparkly.com Kristina

      Woman, half the time you say "HATE this" or "Hate that" how was I supposed to know?! Remember the internet screws up sarcasm in a very reliable way!

        True, true.

        By the way, I am loving this challenge and so are tons of other people. Can't believe all the wonderful commenting going on and all the gorgeous clothes. My hat goes off to you for this one…unbelievable. 96 entries? Wowza. You are going to think I am some kind of stalker if you see how many times I've clicked on that page. I just love looking at eveyone's interpretations…
