Challenge #278 - week of 19th February 2018

Hanging my head in shame... Yes, I missed a week or so. I'm sorry. But are you still there?

Last week was St Valentine's Day and there wasn't much going on round here to be honest. But that doesn't mean to say that we aren't romantic. Just didn't quite happen on the 14th!

However, this week I'd like you to be inspired by romance.

Red hearts and roses, breakfast in bed, a hot bath run for you, a cup of tea in the morning, cards and love notes, just a cuddle in front on the TV. Romance will mean something different for each of us and I have no doubt that you all have a romance inspired layout just waiting to be made - about yourself, about a loved one, about a child, about someone you know. It might even be about your dog, fur baby or a cuddly toy. Romantic films and novels, music or stories might be the way you go but as long as there's some romance in there, you're good to go!

I've made so many romantic layouts over the years and now my DH doesn't want to figure online so I have to be a little more careful about what I share. But in recent months - and please allow me to be boring and repetitive here as many of you will be sick of hearing the details! - the most romantic thing that happened to me was being sent to Paris to celebrate my special birthday with my mum only to find my husband there waiting for me at the hotel when I arrived! So I had a romantic 24 hours with copious amounts of love and champagne in Paris with my soulmate - and my mum! It's a wonderful story and one I'll never forget. There are several layouts about the day either already made or in the process of being made. But here's just one I made for Simple Scrapper, about one particular aspect of the day (and that square of paper was later replaced but a favourite one of the two of us after I took the photo!)

Layout uses a sketch and a Story Starter from the Simple Scrapper membership

So... pick out those heart covered supplies and get all romantic this week. After all, love is a very wonderful thing indeed. 

If you're inspired to create this week, don't forget that you can add your own creations to our Facebook group here - we love it when you share so please don't be shy! Tag your entry with #WMXX so we know exactly which inspiration you've taken. 

Or simply tell us in the comments where to find you... :-)
