This Makes Me Happy
This is a theme used last year and we had so much fun with it.  Along with it being a participant favorite, the team loved seeing what made YOU happy, so we've brought it back.

We're excited to see your designs.
 Don't forget to use a die cut on your project!

This challenge runs from January 26, 2024 until February 7, 2024 (noon, PST)

We'll begin our challenge inspiration with returning guest design,
