up for the challenge

I must say I've been pretty productive in the last few weeks, but not able to share much here, until DT reveals and such. Ive got 2 layouts to share  for LCOM's new sketch #118 reveal today, and a few challenges from the forum and the 8 weeks 10 challenges  contest.
Both of these are based on Sketch #118 by my friend JJ Sobey for LCOM. One page was done with the sketch provided to the design team, and one page done on the "special" 8 PHOTO version JJ sent me!
She was trying to have a little fun with me, so of course, I had to take her up on the challenge- and I really love the page.

This one was done as part of the Dollarstore Extravaganza Challenge being hosted over on the LCOM Forum. The challenge for February was to use 1 of 2 selected Dollarstore items with a provided definition of the word "Love". I chose to use the cupcake liners, making my own washi tape with them, One punched ( upper right) and a ruffled accent strip.

This one is for Challenge #5 of the 8 Weeks 10 Challenges- let me just say that this contest is keeping me on my toes, along with all the other things I'm working on. We had to use the title " Love is in the Air, use at least 1 photo, visible journaling and use traditional Valentine colours. I searched for some time to find a photo of Mark and I alone together...need to make sure we get more of those somehow.
