Hello Everyone!!!!

Hasn't the first month of the year gone so quick??
We, here at Scrapbookit, had a little break over the month of January. Whilst it was lovely to have a rest...I missed my scrapbooking incredibly!!

Anyway, we are back and we can't wait to share with you some great challenges, projects, and inspiration this year!

Today my job is to share with you our new challenge for February.
It is a 3 - 2 - 1 Theme Challenge!

Our challenge this month is to create a project following the theme "All About Love" with the following elements:

3 - Use at least 3 different colours
2 - Include embellishments
1 - Include a song title/lyrics as part of your title/journalling

Your project could be about something, someone or somewhere you love!

Here is what I have come up with...

This month I am using the very fun 7 Dots Studio - Paint Chips paper collection. How gorgeous is it? It is so versatile and a lot of fun to play with.
I have also used the collections Die Cut Elements and Element Sticker Sheet.

I have followed the challenge guidelines with 
- at least 3 colours in my background - created with the awesome Colour Blast Artist Inks in Marine, Sunburn and Barley. 
I have just painted them on with a brush. They did their own blending as the colours joined. In some sections, I have splattered some water after the inks had dried to take out some of the colour

I have used embellishments...firstly a Kinder Kreations Lasercut Designs chipboard "Me & You" and I have also used some of the Die Cut Elements hearts as embellishments as well.

My song title/lyrics are from a Kenny Chesney song called "Me & You"

I have attempted to match my background with some of the patterns on the tags and papers. These were stamped using the top of a lid and then the patterning is drawn by free hand. I thoroughly enjoyed creating this background.

I have also used the Kaisercraft Clear Texture Stamp 'Texture Stains" with black Archival Ink in the background.
And of course, I have followed the theme of 'All About Love' scrapping one of my favourite photos of hubby and I.

Well, that is about all from me today.
Please don't forget to get your entries in for this months challenge - a great little prize is up for grabs, you have until February 28th to enter.
To enter: take a photo of your project and upload it to our Facebook page or to our blog. You can always send it through to Jo via email as well if Facebook or the blog don't work for you.

I can't wait to see what you come up with for the first challenge for the year at Scrapbookit.
