Challenge # 61 - Holiday Inspired

Hi everyone! Thank you so much for all your beautiful ANYTHING GOES challenge entries. We loved all your beautiful creations using your favorite products from 7 Kids College Fund! It's always fun to have as many entries as we did this time with an open challenge.

Before we get to the winners & new challenge, I want to remind you we are looking for GUEST DESIGNERS. If you want to be selected, please place GDT after your name in the link tool AND participate in 1 OR BOTH challenges for the month. Our challenges run two weeks so we have 2 challenges each month. We will announce the Guest Designer in the first challenge of the next month from those that participated in the previous month.
So, what does being a guest designer mean? Well, you will receive a $25 gift certificate to use in the 7 Kids College Fund store & create samples for 1 month of challenges!!! How cool is that?!

And here is our Guest Designer for January:

Congratulations, Kbrandy4, please email me at for details on the next month challenges and to redeem your credit.

We will choose one new guest designer each month so continue to play along with us to be considered. So, spread the news and get crafty! We LOVE to see what YOU create for our challenges!!!
