Flood of Love

The Trolls are adorable, colorful, and the most happiest creatures around. Their leader, Princess Poppy, is known for three things: singing, dancing, and scrapbooking. Check out this clip. That scrapbooked “we did it” is so fun!

Our Flood of Love Valentine’s Day fun challenge is for you to create a Trolls scrapbooking inspired Valentine’s Day eCard that we can share with the community!

Just to be clear… please do not use the Trolls characters or likeness in any way. We just want to use the scrapbooking idea for inspiration. This is NOT a Trolls Valentine’s Day eCard but a Trolls scrapbooking inspired eCard.

This Valentine’s Day image will be shared all over Topcoder’s social media for members far and wide. It should represent the love we all have for the community.
