First words that came out of her mouth when she found out she made the nerdiest DT ever: "Wholy Guacamole!" ....

Here are a couple examples of her artwork that she has created using our most recent inspirational collages:

And here is her take to our current March inspirational collage:

Challenge #13 - Sponsored by Candy Shoppe Designs

Let's get right to it.....
Here's the fabulous collage our Nerd Ally supplied for us this month to take inspiration from:
Take from it what you will (the colors, the patterns, the objects, etc.) and do what you do!
Remember, you do not need to create a collage yourself (that's old skool anyway)....just take inspiration from this one and create whatever it is you want.

To better inspire you, here are what the NERDY GIRLS created with this collage as inspiration:
Did I not mention that our newest Nerdy Girl Emmeli Steinwall is fitting right in?  Well, this is her take and you can see for yourself that she is starting off on the right foot.

Nerdy Girl Megan Aaron shows you that it's okay to go out of the box and create a card instead.  In fact, you can submit anything that you are inspired to create!

Our Nerdy Girl Alysse McDaniel is loving her new Instax camera and shares with us her first layout ever using the pics. from it.

Nerdy Girl Ally Serrato shares her happy place with us.

Nerdy Girl Leah L'Orange goes pictureless with a card using one of her newest stamps she just added to her collection. LOVE!

Last month (February), we challenged you all to take inspiration from this collage piece:
We loved seeing you all work it into your creations and we had so much fun viewing all of your submissions.

Here were our 2 WINNING favorites:


After all, if Moody Girl really is moody, then we're going to need Marja (Miss Deerest) on the team to calm things down. ;-)  Right?

As for everyone else, we seriously enjoyed viewing your work and we hope that you continue sharing future works of art with us to view each month.  Keep a lookout for a the next spot to open up on our team because you can be sure that when you do, we'll be holding down another fun competition. ;-)

Stay tuned tomorrow as we announce a Guest DT position with us.  We have a few girls in mind that we would love to have.  Could it be YOU?
