Default February Border Challenge

It's February. We are seeing pink and red everywhere. Hearts. Flowers. Ribbons. Bows. So why not here?

Your challenge this month is to great a border with any type of Valentine element in it. Anything that speaks of love and affection.

That's pretty easy, right?
Perhaps we should add a twist to it? Let's make it as easy as 1-2-3.

One of.. one item (whatever you want)
Two of.. one item (whatever you want)
Three of .. one item (whatever you want)

* You may use any kit you wish.
* Post your layout in the Surprise Me Border Challenge Gallery
* Come back here and post your preview and a link to the Surprise Me Border Challenge Gallery in this thread. This makes it super simple for us to find your layouts in the gallery, and we thank you for taking this extra step!

What do you earn by participating? Well, theStudio offers a 10% discount on ALL of your purchases for the following month. So, if you participate this month and get a layout posted (AND post a link here in this forum), you will receive 10% off every purchase made next month! No coupons are required. The discount will automatically be applied to your purchase. How easy is that? And YES, this is on top of any sales prices too.

Oh, Nandy, this is lovely! What a darling picture! Love your clusters, and the “wave” cut out! Awesome job! (And I see little Pepe in there too!) cute, cute! Thanks for participating in the challenge!

Beautiful, Jill! And “lots of ones” is okay!  I love the vintage theme you went with, and the border is just stunning! I really love the element choices you made when creating it.

What a beautiful floral border, hivart. It brings out the green in your photo just beautifully! This does look like a romantic evening out!

Diane, what a cute idea, to use the heart element as a frame! I really like how you repeated the hearts in your border, and your title is very cute

Oh, Norma, this is beautiful. The colors are just delicious! And your Valentine cluster is stunning! Awesome title/journal work too!

Oh, my gosh! What a DARLING photo! Look at those eyes! Awesome photo treatment too. What a darling border! Great use of the paper stripes, cut-design border, and flowers! Love seeing little Pepe there too! I like that you used multiple kits and created such a cohesive layout! Great job

Hello alltogether, coming up with my surpiseMeBorder now and I hope my method is okay. I needed maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaany elements to do my border/cluster and so I went the way in the rythym of waltz. You know?!? 1-2-3...1-2-3---
If I count the right way you will find the same number of "1", "2" and "3" elements:

Hubby and I were away for 4 days, and I have just come home today! The first thing I did was come here to see what you all have been up to, and what a delight!

JeepDiva, what a cute page! I love the butterfly and bow border, and the glittery swirl under it just ties it together beautifully. (Super cute tree too!)

mama4bears, this is lovely! Very artistic use of your border! The cluster is lovely, and what a beautiful layout, in general.

Rhonda, a very imaginative page, darling scene you have created! Your white border sets it off beautifully!

kpmelly, what a beautiful border. The colors are stunning, and I like your 1-2-3 theme. Also love the little cluster up in the top right corner!

Lovely page, Cathy. The border is beautiful, and your cluster is just gorgeous. What a treasure, this memory page.

Tamie, What a cute border. repeated elements, and the accordion pleated paper. So cute!

Ephemere13, Beautiful page! The border is so intricate and elegant. What a darling picture too!

Thank you all for your participation in this month's challenge! I will be setting up the March challenge later today. I am wondering if you are ready for another type of challenge now?? Have we played out the Border idea? Any suggestions on what you would like to see, if not the Border Challenge, will be greatly appreciated! See you soon!
