September Challenge "Back to School"!

Come join us for our September challenge.  Now that school is back in session, it just seemed appropriate to do a challenge around school.  Most of us either have children in school or have friends or family members with children in school.  LOL, it doesn't have to be about a child either.  Katrina, one of our designers, did a layout about doggie school!  The challenge is to do anything you wish using Nikki's papers that revolve around school.

Last month our challenge was using "My Friend Birdie".  You could do anything you wanted as long as it was using this collection.  This month's winner Antonia Krajicek aka Green Horned Unicorn not only did one project but two!!  Thank you Antonia for playing along.  Please email Nikki at and let her know what collection of papers you would like.   Both of Antonia's  projects absolutely rock, and here they are.... 

Now here is what our fabulous design team girls did with this months challenge.

The above card was done by our wonder design team member Linda Beeson.  She found the the cute little template for her apple card on the website for Better Homes and Gardens.  If you would like to try this yourself you can check out the link HERE.

Ok, WOW, the talent that the girls have continually blows me away.  They are such an inspiration!  If you would like to play along, just link your work to this post for a chance to win your choice of Nikki Sivils products.  We can't wait to see what you do!

Happy Crafting,
