Prairie Chicks Scrapbook Challenge #46- Lilly

We are starting a new challenge this week. In the last little while we have gotten in some new beautiful papers that we wanted to use. Of course it had to be a mystery challenge as nobody knew which papers they were getting. Each kit contained 2 or 3 pattern papers from one line and a coordinating piece of cardstock.

Lilly had a navy piece of cardstock and papers from My Mind's Eye "Hey Mister"


You can join our challenge by creating a layout using this some of this paper line and a solid piece of cardstock. We would love to see what you create so send a picture of your layout to prairiechicks@sasktel.net or upload to Instagram or Facebook and tag us @prairiechicks and #chickschallenge for Instagram and Prairie Chicks Quilting and Scrapbooking on Facebook.
