Challenge #1 - Sponsored by thelovelyteaspoon

Let's here it for NEW BEGINNINGS!!!

It's such an exciting time right now for us because this happens to be our very first blog challenge here at Envious as a DT. We have been working very hard behind the scenes bringing together everything that we're going to show you today. So without any further ado here is the January collage that you will be taking inspiration from this month....

Ali from TheLovelyTeaspoon is our sponsor this month.

This is Ali and I am SO excited to introduce you all to her. She's from Kentucky and is a 20-something year old wife and mother to two of the cutest twin boys ever! She makes the cutest whimsical jewelry and accessories around with a style all her own. She started TheLovelyTeaspoon back in 2007 and is inspired by what she finds in thrift stores and flea markets. What makes Ali a NERD? Well, when asked where she would take a 2 week vacation her response was: "To the future to see what kind of technological and scientific advances we have accomplished." I think that is by far the coolest answer anyone has had for that question. More power to you Ali! Oh and....if you ever take that vaca I'd like to be right there along side ya okee-dokee?! ;)

The January Blog Candy is a $20 Gift Certificate to Ali's Etsy Shop.

To enter for your chance to WIN the Blog Candy just create a layout taking inspiration from the collage above and leave a link in the comments section below. Don't forget to tell us how you were inspired!
