LMLC #75 All You Need is Love!!!

Happy Monday!!!!!  And welcome to LMLC #75!!!
The past 2 weeks have been crazy for me. I finally feel like I have my head above water and am not drowning in the sea of depression I was in last week.  No reason for it......sometimes when you are bipolar these kinds of things happen and sneak up on you.  I'm feeling MUCH better, almost like my old self again :):) Which is good cuz I have a ton of things I just totally let go and now i gotta bust my hump to get em done!!! Tonight I will be busily trying to create some sort of awesomeness for a class of 2nd graders......Valentines day totally caught me off guard!!! I don't have anything ready for Bob either......EEEEKKK!!! I will bake him a cake or something and call it good.....LOL.

This week's challenge is all about that four letter word.....LOVE!!!!! Super easy this week!! You just need to create a layout with the word LOVE in the title or journaling......Maybe you have a love/hate relationship with Cupid? Or you LOVE coffee? YOu can go totally traditional with this or think outside the box a bit.......whether you are in a romantic relationship or not, we all have something or someone we scrap it!!!

This week we have a sweet little prize for the winning layout too!!
Those heart stamps are just darling!!!! And check out the yummy ribbon!!!!

Our very own Michele with 1 "L" (I gotta keep the two Michele's straight in my head some way!!) Is our sponsor this week AND She is celebrating a birthday!!!! So as a little twist, in order to be eligible to win all of this lovey dovey goodness , you need to complete the challenge AND drop in on Michele (with one L) and wish her a Happy Birthday!!!!! Follow her blog while you are at's not a requirement , but you will be so happy you did!!!  Happy Birthday Michele!!!!! Feb babies rock!!!! (I have a birthday this week as well!!!)

As usual, we have a little sketchy inspiration for you should you want to use it......complete up to you whether you do or don't!!! This one is one of my absolutely faves from PageMaps!!!

I didn't use the sketch, but here is my take on the challenge.....The photo is a couple of years old but I just adore seeing Jesse with his daddy!!! He is such a mama's boy (not that I spoil him or ANYTHING like that!!!) that these moments are actually kinda rare......he thinks Mommy is for cuddling and Daddy is for wrestling :) So a sweet moment like this makes this layout that much more precious to me :):):)  Bob was showing Jesse how to get past a level on his DS and my poor baby boy fell fast asleep!!
I really hope you will join us this week!! Show us some LOVE!!!! :):) 

Hugs n Stuff

Adorable photos and adorable layout! Love the book paper and smattering of hearts!
I'm glad you're feeling better, I know how it is when you are in the throws of a depressive episode and it seems like you'll never surface -but you will, you know you do every time. You have to stay strong and believe it, difficult though that is.
My prayers are always with you.
Enjoy your birthday and your precious family!
