Whatever Wednesday 2-16-11

Hello, all! I've just emerged from a mountain of blankets to post this really quickly. It seems my son gave me the flu and I've been miserable all day. I've got chills, fever, a sore throat, a runny nose, and aches all over. I really wish kids would keep their germs to themselves! lol! So here are the layouts I wanted to share with you today.

Sketchy Thursdays GDT Sketch.

2011 is just tripping along, isn't it, and we're already ready for our March Guest Design Team Challenge!
I'm feeling the whole Valentine's Day vibe around here so I'm going to up the GDT ante.
In addition to using the sketch above, please include on your layout:

♥ Pink & Green or Red & Turquoise (I chose Red & Turquoise)
♥ Hearts (I made a heart banner)
♥ A list about something/someone you love (I listed something I love about each one of my family members)

My Family layout. This is the page I created for the Sketchy Thursdays GDT Call. I also created this for the (Paper) Trailmakers Challenge - Love Letters.

This week's challenge is all about Love Letters. No, you don't have to show us those letters you received!!! What we want you to do is a Recipe Challenge this time. Not actually cooking, ladies!!! You will pick 4 of the ingredients that are spelled with the letters from Love Letters and use those on your projects!!! You can use more than 4 if you would like, but you must use at least 4 to qualify for our drawing at the end of the month for that fabulous stamp set from My Pink Stamper that Sandi introduced to you the other day!! We also want you to tell us which 4 you used. Most of the time it is obvious, but sometimes it is not, so please "spell it out" for us!!!!

You will have until 5 pm EST on Saturday, 19 Feb. to post your project to Mr. Linky. Don't forget, for everything you participate in for February you will get your name in the drawing for the stamp set. And, we just may have some surprises along the way to get your name in an extra time! Sandi started us off with her challenge a few days ago to PM her over on the forum with the answer to a question - you can read about it here!
Lace(can be lace trim or doily or lacy paper)  - Used a doilie heart
Oval shaped item
Eyelets - Used eyelets to hold up the banner
Letters - Used Thickers for the title
Edge punch (some call it a border punch!!)
Trim - Used pom pom trim
Electronic die cutting machine - Used my Cricut for the hearts
Ribbon - Used red and white ribbon
Stamps - Used stamps on the turquoise blocks
