February's Take Twelve

Happy President's Day!  We are enjoying a four day weekend.  I hope you are getting a little break too, while we remember and are thankful for the father of our nation and all the men who have led our country, for better or worse.  Regardless of party lines, I am grateful for the men & women who dedicate their lives to public office and law making.  It's a thankless job, with so many critics one can never hope to make everyone happy.  With that being said, now back to our regularly scheduled postings...
I have some exciting news, my January Take Twelve was featured on this month's post on Ella Publishing's blog!!!!  I was so thrilled to see it up there, very fun for me as I love Elizabeth Dillow.  I've even got her book, The Scrapbooker's Almanac so knowing she saw one of my layouts is very cool!

I am running a little late with my monthly layout for Take Twelve, which is okay because unlike some participants mine is not made up of photos literally taken on the 12th of each month.  Since I am also doing Project Life, I decided that 12 photos revolving around the monthly theme from the Take Twelve Guided Inspiration Kit is how I'll be participating.  Although, I wouldn't rule out a month where I will take all 12 on the 12th. 
Here is a closer look at the leftside of the page, I used number 4 from the Take Twelve Templates.  The kit is Letters of Love Mini Kit from Sara Schmultz.  The blue polka dot and red hearts on each side are made from part of the bingo card.  To make them, I {badly} extracted the heart.  The edges are pretty rough but since the hearts are small I don't think you can tell that much. 
The cursive "love" and "hug" on the layouts are from the kit Well Written Set One, a freebie I got from Simply Tiffany Design, during one of the designer blog hops through Design House Digital.  The originals are really cute quotes but I only needed the word so I erased the rest of the text.
