The Theme for this month is LOVE!
It can be anything: a photo of the ones you love, an animal, a house!
This photo you will send to your partner, who will make a LO with it.
Sign in now if you like to play along.

Saturday 9th of February I will announce the partners.

(1) Your layout must be unique, and can only be used for this challenge.
(2) Your layout also counts as one entry towards the Scrappin' 7 Challenge (http://godigitalscrapbooking.com/forum/showthread.php?t=24193).
(3) Use of GDS products is strongly encouraged and greatly appreciated.
(4) Please post your layout in the Miscellaneaous Gallery HERE (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showgallery.php?cat=517)
(5) Come back here and post what you created, and link it to the gallery, so we can all leave you some love!
(6) HAVE FUN!

All participators receive a bonus in a PM, first week of the next month.
This challenge runs through February 28.

Do you all know how to link your images back to the gallery? .. If not, have a look here (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/tutorials/GDS_Why_Go_Digital/LinkingAGalleryLayout/LinkingAGalleryLayout.html).
Also... here's (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/tutorials/GDS_Why_Go_Digital/KeywordsAndProductLinks/KeywordsAndProductLinks.html) how to assign keywords to your layouts to give the credit back to the designer.

Let's have fun with this challenge!

The partners are announced in the first post!
Remember: PM your partner as soon as possible to send her your e-mail adress.
Once you have that, send her the photo with LOVE in it (no matter what, but it should be clear that you mean LOVE!).
Scrap the photo, put your LO in the gallery and come back to show us all what you made of it.
You can send the LO also to your partner!

Because there was an even amount of participators, I will not play with you... but I made an Inspiration LO.

I was lucky to have Saskias as my swap partner this month. Saskias sent me this adorable photo of the "love of her life" - her darling daughter. I love the confident stride she has carrying the riding gear over one shoulder.

Lovely Little Rider

I chose Metallic Arts kit by Saskia Designs for this page.

Thank you so much Kay!
I really adore your LO.

And I am sorry to say, but I am not the one behind Saskia Design (I wish I could design like her, but I can't).

Els AW

Wow... thought you were the designer Saskia. But that doesn't matter..... I do love the photo of your daughter. She sure does have confidence in her stride and movement. So glad you were my partner for this swap.

My partner this month was BrightEyes. She's sent me a gorgeous picture of her grand children.

I've recolored a kit of Created by Jill, just to meet the beautiful colors of the pictures. Kay, I hope you like my LO...

Don't you just love Cooper?
