Before we get to today's challenge, let's recap..

We currently have a blog hop running until Monday. Lots of inspiration and lots of blog candy to be won! We hope you can hop along and visit each of our designers.. they'd love to meet you! :) Start your hopping here.

We will be hosting 5 challenges total. Today is the 2nd challenge. The 3rd through 5th will be announced tomorrow through Sunday. All challenge entries are due Tuesday at noon. All 5 challenge winners and blog hop candy winners will be announced Tuesday.

Our Spotlight Night has been moved from Sunday to Monday. On Monday we will feature several projects, choosing a few entries from each challenge :)

Now that we have all that stuff out of the way.. let's get to today's fun challenge! :)

This week is all about our "favorites" and I'm sure everyone has a favorite paper crafting company! Today's challenge is...

Important note: Your project should be made mostly with product from your favorite paper crafting company. We want your chosen company to be clearly seen and heavily used on your project.. at least 70% their product. Create a project that your favorite company would want to use in their galleries :)

Our prize for today's challenge is..
Who's favorite paper crafts company is Nikki Sivils?? I'm sure I hear a lot of "ME!"s lol. Nikki has many fabulous collections and "Blueberry Hill" is no exception! Nikki Sivils has sponsored TPV a couple times in the past and we're so happy to offer her products as prize again today! :)

Need some inspiration to get you started?
Check out Team A's awesome projects using their favorite paper companies!
My all time Favorite paper crafting company is Crate Paper.  I love the cute designs.  This is "Emma's Shoppe"

My favourite pp is Fancy Pants. They are so bright and funky which is why I love to scrap these papers
There are so many great paper crafting companies out there, but I had to go with the very first company that really caught my eye and captured my heart!  Bo Bunny never ceases to impress me with their collections and loads of accessories and embellishments.  Their card kits (like the "Gabrielle" one i used here) are so wonderful and versatile.  I just needed to add my own personal touch with flowers and bling and VOILA!  Beautiful cards for any occasion!

My favorite paper crafting company is My Minds Eye!  I just LOVE all of their lines and have more of their stuff than I really care to admit ... So, this was mostly the Lime Twist line and I just can't get enough of it.  For those of you who are paying attention ... the journaling is actually on the airline barf bag ... read the story and I'm sure you'll understand a little better :/

My all time favorite paper company is Echo Park. There are only a couple of collections they have released that I did not have to have. I also used a MFT image on this pages well - Cuddle Up Carter. He's so cute.

I had a really hard time choosing a favorite, I love so many equally! But I finally chose Bella Blvd. I'm a huge fan of so many of their fun and colorful collections!

Now it's your turn! :)
Enter your paper project below following today's "favorite paper crafts company" challenge before Tuesday noon EST for your chance at winning that fun Nikki Sivils prize! 

Just ONE entry per person, please! See our rules page here.
