    Happy February! Love is in the air and we so need some of that right now.
    But first, let's take care of January. The winners drawn at random are:
    $10 coupon goes to ... @wvufan04
    $6 coupon goes to ... @Eyeore
    - Your coupons will be delivered to you via PM from Rachel very soon, congrats and have fun shopping, ladies!

    February 2021 Challenge
    February is all about the love. And I'm not just talking about the love of another person! It can be the stage you find yourself at in your life right now, or your deep love for a favorite place or space or animal - or even food!

    To celebrate this month of love, I have a recipe challenge for you. I love a little spice in my recipes - so you must include a quote about love in your layout. Originally, I wanted to use this quote from Dr. Seuss:
    "You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams."
    But, you can use any quote about love. It can be funny or serious, it can be about self-love, love of some thing, but there must be a "love" quote on your page. Please list the quote and author in your credits.

    AND, since it's not a Rachel Jefferies challenge without mixed media, your recipe is as follows:
    • Quote about love
    • At least three (3) paper/fabric pieces
    • thread
    • heart
    • paint
    • art marks
    • flowers
    • foliage
    You may include additional items, if you wish, but the items listed above must be clearly present in the layout.
    • Your layout must be comprised of 100% Rachel Jefferies products; 90% must be currently available in her store. You may use up to 10% retired products.
    • You may use items from Mixed Media Monthly collections of which Rachel was a part.
    • Upload your layout to the Rachel Jefferies Designs Gallery at TLP and list the products used in your credits.
    • For your challenge entry to be counted, you MUST upload your finished layout to this thread. Please link your thread to your gallery image as it helps us leave love on your layout (and, validate your project).
    • No double dipping…your layout must be used for this challenge only, no others.
    • You must create a new layout for this challenge.
    • This challenge will remain open until February 28, 2021.

    Rachel has some amazingly beautiful kits in the store that are perfect for this challenge. Here are a couple of ideas:

    But it can be!

    I discovered Rachel's designs during the MOC last month and fell in love with them. Here's my entry for this challenge - the messy look of Rachel's kits reminds me of my kids - order in chaos, disheveled yet beautiful.

    P.S. I can't seem to get the image to show... here's the link to my gallery...

    I didn't have a heart, so I warped a loop of stitching to make one. I hope that's alright!
