Swimming for Katie Challenge ($200+ PRIZE!)

***For my Ribbon Carousel post, please scroll down***
Have you all been Swimming for Katie with us? There is some AMAZING inspiration on the designers's blogs! Are you ready to help out too??

I've decided to host a Swimming for Katie Challenge! All you have to do to enter this challenge is use one of the stamps that were designed to benefit Katie and her family. All the proceeds from these stamps are going directly to the Renz Family. Make anything you want. Enter as many times as you want. Have your kids make something. It doesn't matter to me. But YOU MUST USE ONE OF THE SWIMMING FOR KATIE STAMPS! I will delete any entry that doesn't follow the rules.

What do you win?!?
