Challenge YOUrself #101 "I LOVE...."

I hope you get some time to get creative and play along with us this month!
So many possibilities for this month's challenge at the Challenge YOUrself Blog!!  This month we would like you complete the phrase: I love . . . . You can complete the sentence any way you like, just remember to include a photo with you on your page!

This was an easy challenge for me this month - as I was able to be blessed to celebrate another Valentines Day with the man I LOVE !

 I selected a photo of the 2 of us taken this past Valentines Day in our home.  As you can see in the photo, I love sunflowers, and I thought Graphic 45's "Let it Bee" Collection would be perfect to scrap this wonderful memory!

I had so much fun creating this layout - fussy cutting, stenciling, splattering, layering......  
Oh My!!

Here are some close ups for you:
I really find fussy cutting relaxing - I cut out the flowers and elements on the 12x12 "Let it Bee" page from the collection and layered it on top of a black and white dot page with foam squares.
**Can you find the golden bee charm hanging on the page?

Here you can see some of the chipboard and gold elements and the gold splatter on some of the flowers.

How awesome is that BEE Stencil!! Love it!

I always try to tuck a journaling card behind my photo using 3D foam tape.

Here is a photo of the painting we posed in front of. It is in our dining room - like I mentioned before, I do love sunflowers!!! - My hubby bought me a bouquet in the red vase, and I painted the sunflowers in the picture on the right.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you have a chance to play along with us at the Challenge YOUrself Blog this month - we can't wait to see what YOU LOVE!

Be Well and Stay Safe!
