My Valentine (and DT call!)

So Austin was sick for a week, then Eryn got sick, followed by myself. Yep...I'm sick. :( And I have no doubt that it won't be long before Hayden gets it too. :( No matter how hard I try to sanitize or keep the sickies isolated...we all seem to get sick...every time.

Today I am sharing a Valentine's Day layout with you all, but it is slightly different then a typical Valentine's layout. And it doesn't include a picture of me and my valentine, I didn't have any of us together on that day, it is just a picture of my Valentine this year.

I played along with Prima's February BAP challenge. Here's the BAP sketch they had for February:

And here is the layout I made for it:

I was lucky enough to get my hands on some new Prima goodies and I was excited to be able to play with them. :)

Here are some close up's of my layout:

I used Helmar adhesives to put it all together, I just used the 450 Quick Dry Adhesive for everything. It works great for flowers.

And did you see this????

Wonderful layout! So sweet, poor little one. I am working on my DT layouts. I am wondering though, for the part that says...
2. 2 layouts, 1 card and 1 project representing your best never before seen work using MLS
...is this for a total of 4 projects? I want to make sure I am reading it correctly! Thanks!
