Every challenge also has a bonus optional twist.  We challenge you to include a dragonfly in some way or form on your mermaid projects.  Those who choose to rise to the Dragonfly Twist Challenge in the most unique way wins our Dragonfly Award badge.  Please put “DA” after your name in your entry description to indicate you’ve entered the challenge twist and make sure to explain how you’ve incorporated a dragonfly in your blog post.

We're excited to have LeighSBDesigns Digi Stamps and SVG Cutz sponsoring us this month, YAY!  LeighSBDesigns is sponsoring our main challenge prize and also provided the beautiful mermaid and sea life digi images the CDT ladies used on their projects today!


LeighSBDesigns Digi Stamps and SVG Cutz has a wonderful selection of a wide range of digi stamps in many theme with images that range from cute to creepy, from cats to bats and everything in between including a magical collection of Mermaid themed images too with a brand new Mermaid release launching this morning!  They are gorgeous and I've included the launch video and promotional badges below for you to see!  All these images are available at LeighSBDesigns Boutique on Etsy.  Leigh also designs wonderful SVG cut files for use with electronic cutting machines, be sure to look at her SVG Cutz section too if you're a Cricut girl or use another similar cutting machine!  All of LeighSBDesigns mermaid and sea life designs are on sale through May 31.


Be sure to pop on over to LeighSBDesigns Inspiration Blog because they are also hosting a Mermaid themed challenge you will want to play in this month!  You could win more prizes while supporting our sponsor at the same time, what fun!

CHALLENGE INFO
Our challenges are monthly and start on the 1st Friday of each month.
Each challenge will have a different theme - FYI not all will be dragonfly themed but if you love the challenge of including dragonflies each month then you can do the Optional Challenge Twist where I challenge you to incorporate a dragonfly regardless of the current theme.  FUN right!

ANYTHING FLIES aka anything goes
Anything Flies Challenges are our fun take on Anything Goes which means you make anything you want.  

DRAGONFLY AWARD - BONUS CHALLENGE TWIST
Every challenge will also have a bonus optional twist.  I challenge you to include a dragonfly in some way or form regardless of the theme.  Those who choose to rise to the Dragonfly Twist challenge in the most unique way wins our Dragonfly Award badge. 

WINNERS and PRIZES
Until Paper Dragonfly Creative Challenges are established with 5+ players, not 5 entries by one player, the challenges will be "just for fun" and then we'll have sponsored prizes so tell your friends to come and play!  The main Prize winner, Dragonfly Award winner and Top 3 winners will win badges and be invited to guest DT for the next challenge.  Sponsored Challenges - the main Prize winner will win the sponsored prize when offered.
