Time Flies

It's the first day of February and everywhere in the world will be celebrating love this month as Valentine's Day makes its yearly appearance. But this year, we are also celebrating Chinese New Year on the same day and so Scrap-It-Lah is having a very unique challenge this month: combining both oriental and love elements in your layouts. Such a cool challenge indeed. Please drop by HERE to see the details and get your inspirations from the DTs' sample layouts.

Here is my take

The oriental elements are represented by the Chinese characters on the patterned papers I used and the colour red. The lovey-dovey elements are represented by the photos of me and hubby on our honeymoon 10 years ago and also by the heart-shaped clock chipboard piece. Incidentally, we'll be celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary this month too.

If you look closely at the last picture, you'll see that I purposely used a dictionary paper , on which page has the definition of LOVE. That's a subtle lovey-dovey element in that layout.

Materials used:
Patterned papers: 7Gypsies, Far Flung Craft, dictionary paper. Chipboard element: ScrapFX. Alpha sticker: American Crafts. Notecards: Crate Paper, Cosmo Cricket. Pearl swirls: Prima Marketing. Others: Tim Holtz Distress Ink pads, acrylic paints, lace trim, DYMO tape writer

Target : 100 layouts
Done: 3 layouts
To do: 97 layouts
