The Paper Nest Dolls March 2016 Challenge Inspiration:
"Gnome Ellie" and "Avery With Teddy"

Hello everyone! It's time for the new challenge at The Paper Nest Dolls for March. I hope to see many gorgeous creations this month entered in the challenge! Here are all the details on the challenge: 

***Please NOTE - There is a change in winner prizes ***

We have changed the way we will be awarding prizes from now on, and there will only be one prize for the overall winner.  The top 3 will still be named and will still have the honor of displaying the Top 3 winner badge on their blog.  From now on, the overall winner will win a $20 gift code to the Paper Nest Dolls online store, where they can purchase rubber stamps!  So, starting this month, December 2015, if you are the overall winner, be sure to send a message to ""and indicate in the subject line that you are the Monthly Winner.  
Remember, the challenge here is always Anything Goes :)
