Hello friends!!

It’s time for the next AEI♥U Challenge, and we can’t wait for you to check it out!!  Buh-BAM!!

Challenge 23

Watercolor is one of those trends that seems to be sticking around, and boy does that make us happy!!  It’s one of those timeless trends that I think translates to all styles of design!  Here’s how our amazing new challenge team interpreted the prompt (Lindsay was so inspired, she made two projects!)!


Amazing, right?!!  Okay, so now it’s your turn to create something!!  We’d love for you to play along!  Here are the rules and regulations!
