Challenge YOUrself #38 February Challenge

Hello and HAPPY February!  We have a "LOVELY" New Challenge ready for you over at the Challenge YOUrself Blog!  I hope you will join us and play along!

This month, we Challenge YOU to create a Layout -using the "Color RED," and "Stamping" somewhere on your layout.  Don't forget, part of the challenge is always to include a photo of "YOU" in your layout!

I have to say, I am NOT a big Stamper - BUT, in reality, I have so many stamps that I can't count them all!  (Shhh... no one has to know that! LOL!)  I really should start using them!! I'm hoping this challenge will push me to do just that, as I "love" how my stamping came out!

For the challenge -

I used RED heart and chevron patterned paper for the base, along with 

I Stamped the word LOVE from a Heidi Swapp stamp that I have had FOREVER!  I also stamped the Date on one of the Simple Storie Die Cuts that I had in my stash.

Here is my Design Team inspiration layout for you:
This is a photo of my wonderful hubby and I standing on the Disney Wonder, right in front of the Sawyer Glacier, at the end of the Tracy Arm fjord in Alaska!  It was a cold and very wet, and rainy day. We stood up on Deck 10 for hours, thinking it was going to be right around the corner of every turn! The anticipation built all morning long! We wouldn't give up our post and we go wetter and wetter, and I can honestly say, we would do it all again in a heartbeat!!

Here are a few close ups for you too!
Here you can see my stamping - hey, it is a start (maybe?!)

The Mickey Tag is actually the luggage tag they give you to attach to your luggage the night before you disembark.  The Alaska die cut is from my favorite on-line scrapbook store Scrap-a-Doodle Doo www.shopthedoo.com  

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you will play along with us this month at the Challenge YOUrself Blog!
