Paper Nest Dolls First Challenge - Anything Goes

Welcome to The Paper Nest Dolls Challenge Blog! The Paper Nest Dolls is an online shop featuring its own digital and rubber stamps, inspired by our designer's (Christine Young's) children. Christine owns a brick and mortar scrapbooking store in Florida, and decided to put her artistic skills to use and design her own stamps.

We will be running biweekly challenges, starting on Mondays, and ending the Friday the week AFTER the challenge starts. A complete list of challenge rules/guidelines can be found on our sidebar. It is NOT required to use a Paper Nest Dolls image on your entry, although we will have freebies available soon and encourage you to take a look around our shop.

Our first challenge is Anything Goes! You may link up any project as long as it was posted on your blog/gallery during the duration of the challenge.

Monday April 1st - Friday April 12th

The DT will choose their top three submissions for each challenge, and one randomly chosen winner will win our sponsored prize. This week Christine is sponsoring this lovely scrapbooking bundle from her store:

- "Sweet Girl" 6x6 Echo Park Paper Pad
- Prima Flowers
- My Mind's Eye "Collectable" Decorative Pins
- "Spring Fling" Bella Blvd. Flags
- Prima "Say It In Crystals" Sheet 
- Blue Flowers by The Paper Studio
For my card I used the image "Owen with Wooden Horse"
He is colored with Promarkers.
I used the 6x6 paper pad Note To Self from Echo Park.
The metal gears are from Tim Holtz "Idea-logy"
The floss for my tags are from We R Memory Keepers
TFL!  Be sure to check out The Paper Nest Dolls Challenge Blog to see what the rest of the team did as well as enter the First Challenge - Anything Goes.
Happy Crafting!!!
