Me, Myself and I Challenge...with a PRIZE!

Good Morning all. Thanks for all the Gr8 ;) entries on the last challenge...that was fun!

We have another fun one to work on over the next two weeks. It's called the "Me, Myself and I" challenge. The point is to scrap why you have been blessed with your beautiful names. Where did they come from? Is it a family name, a pop culture name (from a book or movie), something combined from your mom and dad? Set the record straight, and your family will love to read to story in years to come.

This is running from today through May 7th. Please be sure to add your link up in the comments section and the lucky winner will win a prize pack from our lovely sponsor this week NIKKI SIVILS! I was sent a big box of goodies last week and of course there is more than enough to share...so get your entry in and you will be entered to win the prize package! I will be picking a random winner...so get your entries in by the deadline to be entered. I will announce the winner on the 8th!

Here are the DT's stories and examples:
Anabelle (Guest Designer)








Hope you all have fun with this one! I can't wait to see and read your creations. Have a lovely week.
