SOME EXCITING NEWS!

My exciting news is that I have been selected to join the Design Team at Creative Inspirations and I look forward to sharing my inspiration for  each month's challenge

So on to February's challenge.  This month's challenge is Love is in the Air and / or Colour Scheme!  Create something for a loved one or simply use a Pink /Red colour scheme!
This month we have two prizes up for grabs!

The first is from PETAL LU and the prize is a 30% DISCOUNT FROM THE STORE!
The second prize is from CRAFTY RIBBONS and the prize is some of their
