CHALLENGE #100 - IT'S OUR BIRTHDAY - ANYTHING GOES

Hi Lovely Pinkies...

It's a special day for us at In The Pink - not only is it our 4th Birthday...  it's actually our 100th challenge!!  Can you believe we've been celebrating all things PINK for the last four years??  It's been so good that you've shared the love along the way...  we do love seeing your fabulous creations, and we still choose our favourites to be Perfect Pinkies..... no random.org here!



Sooooooo...  to celebrate the occasion, we're having a really easy theme...  it's

ANYTHING GOES
(in PINK of course)

All you have to do is USE MORE PINK THAN ANY OTHER COLOUR - THIS IS OUR NUMBER ONE RULE!  We want to see PINKNESS overload with LOTS AND LOTS of PINK!  It's sad to say that we cannot consider entrants who don't follow this rule, no matter how wonderful the creation, it's not what we're about!

Here's what the lovely Pink Ladies have come up for inspiration...


Kat






And because we're celebrating......  we decided to have special prizes for the Perfect Pinkies chosen from this challenge - each PINK LADY is putting together a little bundle of pinkness...  so ALL SIX of the Perfect Pinkies chosen by us will get a prize!!

We also have some lovely Pink Ladies' birthdays to celebrate in August too..  so we'll be eating lots of cake!! 

So....... let's see what you can come up with to help us celebrate...  don't forget to use MORE PINK THAN ANY OTHER COLOUR!
