A new challenge is up at Dotty Divas. Starting this month, there will be two challenges, one on the 1st and another one on the 15th of each month.

For the first challenge in the month of February, you may use this ad as inspiration in making your layouts, cards and other projects that you may want to share:

Here's my take:

I was inspired to use some of the colors in the ad - blue, green and white. I made this LO during the LB Scrapaholics Scrap Buffet to celebrate Rita's Birthday.

So what are you waiting for? Be inspired with the ad and win a fabulous prize from our very own DT member, Natalie.

February GDT at Coordinates Collection

I've been a member of Coordinates Collection for some years now. I have joined in their monthly contests, scrap challenges and crops and won in some of them. Last December, I joined in their Guest Design Team (GDT) Contest and luckily I was chosen to be their Guest Designer for the month of February. I am their last Guest Designer as they will taking a break with their monthly GDT contest.

I was asked to choose between these two kits:

February Heart kit

February Soul kit

My feminine side told me to choose the one with more reds and pinks, none other than the heart kit. It was sent to me last Jnuary 9, 2010 and received it more that two weeks after.

Here are the layouts, card and home decor I came out with from the kit:

Layout #1 - For the Love of Facebook

Layout #2 - The Love We Share

Love You card

Love Day door hanger

If you are interested to purchase these kits, please feel free to visit the CC Store. Each kit costs $17.95 plus shipping.
