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!

Here's the video at YouTube:


And here is the love themed giveaway prize for one lucky winner:



Prize contains 1 6x6 pad from Prima called Something Blue, Stampin' Up! Washi tape (remember this from my shopping video), Silver foam letter stickers, 1 1/2 yards gray chevron ribbon and one Valentine stamp.   The stamp is from my collection but all other items are brand new.

Giveaway details:  The giveaway is open to anyone who wishes to leave a comment.  You may leave one additional comment with a link to your challenge project for an extra chance to win.  Giveaway chance closes at 6 p.m. ET on Saturday February 20, 2016.

Randomly chosen winner will be posted on this blog by Sunday the 21st.  Check back to see if you have won.  The winner must email me by the following Wednesday.  If I don't hear from the winner, I'll draw another commentor.

  7. Love you page and the tutorial.

    I have a love story I want to put on a page or two. My dh has fallen head over heels for our dd's soon-to-be adopted almost 3-year-old son.

    The problem is that since the adoption is not yet finalized I cannot post any photos of the little guy on line.

  12. Lisa, Your challenge is terrific...my own relationship is so strained, I find it challenging to want to scrap. But I have very blessed friends whose love is so admirable (an enviable) that it will be a delight to highlight in paper form! Thank you for a chance to play in a different way :-)
