Divas vs. Elmer's Craft and Tell Challenge!

Hey there!!  It's Katrina and today is the day for our reveal of the results of the Elmer's Craft and Tell Challenge that some of us at Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker took!  There are TWO teams of us!  Julie Tucker-Wolek and I headed up separate teams.

There are also TWO prizes from Elmer's to be won!  One winner will come from this posting and one winner will come from Julie's posting!  For the details on how to win, see at the end of this post.

And by the way, my team is the most wonderful and the BEST.  (just sayin' Julie!)

Katrina's Team:
(my post will be on my blog on Saturday to leave a comment)
First Diva up is Delaina Burns.  This girl can rock some layouts and this one is no exception.  Delaina used the We Are Family collection.  The Elmer's products that helped her get the job done were the
Xacto Craft Knife, Elmer's Glue Stick and Elmer's Craft Bond Glue Spots.  

Be sure to visit Delaina's blog today!!

 Second Diva that took the challenge is  Linda Beeson.  Linda creates such beautiful cards and occassional layouts for us, but look at what she did here!!!  An altered frame!  Linda used the It's Raining, It's Pouring Collection and some of those wonderful Cute as a Button Burlap Buttons.  She also used her Cricut Expression with the Home Accents and Doodlecharms cartridges!

Here are the fun products that Linda worked with, she took a picture of them before hand! 
To see the COMPLETE step by step tutorial on how Linda created this wonderful frame (including the sizes she cut her Cricut pieces at), please visit her at her blog!

Challenger number three..Diva Sarah Eclavea!!  She used the We Are Family Collection on her project. AND this was perfect, because it really was a FAMILY crafting affair!  Her 2 year old daughter helped her make this!  Here's a quote from Sarah:

This is not exactly what I imagined, but it was fun to make! I decorated the front and my daughter (2 years old) decorated the inside. So the story behind this is.... My daughter is addicted to a show called Go Diego Go. Diego rescues animals and has an animal rescue center. She calls this her animal rescue center and puts all her little toy animals that she rescues in it. She picked the paper and stickers to decorate the inside. That's why there's a bunch of animal stickers in there. 
Be sure to visit Sarah's blog for additional pictures and info!!!  Sarah used the Elmer's Craft Bond Glue, Glue Stick, Foam Board, Paint Markers, X-Acto Mat, Craft Knife and Scissors on her project!

Next Diva up for the challenge is Jennifer Yates!  She created and adorable layout with the Beatrice collection and she also used those Cute as a Button Burlap Buttons!  Be sure to visit Jennifer's blog!

And then there is me!  I created a wall hanging out of the We Are Family collection, with some Cute as a Button Buttons and Warm Cord Brads!

I used the Decorative Scissors to craft my flowers!

Then the neatest thing I tried was the Paint Markers on the chipboard!  OMG....they worked wonderfully and made the chipboard almost look like suede!!!

So, I bet you are wondering what YOU need to do to win some fun Elmer's products?  Well, just visit EACH of the Diva's projects on their blogs and leave a comment.  All of their blog links are at the beginning of this post.  After that come back here and tell me.  You will have until June 12th at midnight CST to leave comments (this applies to Julie's post and her team also).  Come back on this post for a chance to win the prize that I am giving out and then you will need to post on Julie's for a chance to win hers!    We will announce both winners on the evening of June 13th. 

Also here are some fun links for you!  Go to their Facebook pages and tell them that the Divas from Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker sent you over!!!!
