Hello :hello:

Welcome to the Be Inspired! Challenge for February 2013.

Sometimes when I open my lunchbox, I find a little message on top of my lunch.
When I go to bed I sometimes hear a sound coming from under my pillow… there it is, a message from him.
Yes, you could say he is a romantic guy! If you would ask him, it’s Valentine’s day every day of the year.

I am not sure yet what kind of present I will surprise my partner with on February 14th… I still have a few days to think about it :wink:

As your host for this challenge I hope I can inspire you to join this challenge. It will not be a surprise that I would like you to come up with a layout for a Valentine.

Additional info:

(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://www.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 Be Inspired! Challenge gallery here (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=116403&title=1-thing&cat=811)
(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!

There will be a bonus for all who participate in this challenge by posting and linking their creations here. Please be sure to credit the designer's kit/s when you post to the gallery.

This challenge runs through February 28.

Good luck and most of all have fun!!!



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)

My hubby used to put little love notes for me to find, too. The one above my desk says: Our's is a partnership. But it always sounds so funny when I tell the guys I'm in love with my partner...

Now that he has died they are a great comfort to me.

I loved the card you made for the announcement. It inspired me to make a card for my darling husband.

I don't usually give him a Valentine's card so this one is special.

Used the GDS Feb Collab - Sweeter Than Candy for it.

Diane, so sorry for the loss of your husband. I know those notes and memories of him are so very special. Keep those precious memories tucked into a corner of your heart.

We are not used to go out for valentine or do something special 'cause we do love each other every single day of the year and we choose each other every morning! After 16 years I still love him just like on our wedding day! So for this valentine challenge I selected three photos of our happy moments together.

Beautiful layout! The colour red is one of my favorites.
I also love the little glittering hearts.
I am sure your husband will be very happy with this special Valentine's card.

Thank you so much for participating the Be Inspired! Challenge *smile

And that is how it should be. Every day is Valentine's day :wink:
Thank you for showing us three of your happy moments together.
I love your layout and beautiful clustering.

My partner and I are not really doing something special for Valentine. Like I said in the introduction of this challenge, if you would ask my partner it is Valentine's day every day. Last year he sent a Valentine's card to my office address... you can imagine that I was very surprised when a colleague brought me the mail.

In the introduction I also mentioned that I did not know yet what kind of present I would surprise my partner with. Now I know.
This year I will give my partner a CD with the song "I love you, always forever" (by Donna Lewis) with this layout (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=116307&title=i-love-you-forever&cat=811)on the cover.

I used the February 2013 GDS Collab kit "Sweeter than Candy"

My Valentine has been my daughter for the past several years... I created "Make Your Own Valentine Cards" with her in mind. She can create her own bag toppers, party invitations, valentine cards, place cards, bingo cards, etc.... basically anything she needs for a Valentine Party. Here are some bag toppers and cards we ended up making and thought it was appropriate to share with this challenge.
