The Love Story Challenge and Giveaway
Happy Valentine's Day!
I have a special layout for you for a challenge I'm hosting. Leave a comment below for a chance at a prize and get an extra chance by playing along with the challenge.
Here's the challenge:
Create a page telling a love story - just not your love story with your significant other.
Make your page about another relationship, maybe parent/child or you and one of your siblings.
Or you can do as I have and create a page to tell someone else's love story.
My page is about my aunt and uncle who were married 72 years. They married just a couple of months after Pearl Harbor and only a few days before he was deployed. The built their life together back here in North Carolina as dairy farmers, parents, and active members of their church. My aunt was a remarkable woman and I was blessed to have them in my life.
The circle of hearts die cut shown above and in the video is available here in SVG format: Hearts Joined In Circle Ungroup the design to get to the heart in the center. That is the one you can cut 8 times to create the hearts to fill in if you wish.
You don't have to use the cut file for the challenge. Though you may take up another part of my layout and that was to use non-traditional Valentine colors. I used Authentique's Nestled 6x6 pad which is actually a fall collection.
So have fun creating a page to tell use a love story and share a link to your page in the comments. I look forward to seeing them!
