This month, we have the talented Wida Miller from Beachorado as our guest designer. We are so excited she is joining us, and wait until you see her stunning creation!

I am a mother of 4 and nurse practitioner. I have been blogging for about a year and love it! I coined the name of my blog BEACHORADO for the love of both the beach tones and rustic Colorado vibe, the state in which I live. My design aesthetic is fresh and edgy CAS. You can also find special features on my blog such as Diagnosis Design, Casadia, The Wida Way, and Saturday Afternoons.

Now it's your turn! Create any holiday themed project utilizing the above shades as your main colours and link us up below! You can combine our challenge with your other favourite challenges, and enter as many times as you like. This challenge will run until February 27, 2013 at 11:59PST. We will post our favourites when the next challenge goes live!

***Please remember to link up your actual blog post and not just your blog address!***

***As it takes time for our designers to visit your blog, please consider shutting off your captcha so that we might be able to more easily leave you some love!***
