I will highlight some of the rules here. We would LOVE to see your creations using a Paper Nest Doll stamp, however, it is NOT a requirement for this challenge. It does HAVE to be Back to School themed. The DT will pick their top 3 submissions for each challenge, and one randomly chosen winner will win our sponsored prize package pictured below.
