First, I must ask you all to forgive me for being less active this past month. There have been so many really beautiful creations that ought to have been acknowledged more. Also, the ATC exchange did not get done.
My beloved 101 year old Auntie Lydia fell and broke her hip on New Year's Day. I have spent much of this past month shuttling between her home in Atlanta and Chicago. She is amazing and is determined to return to as much independence as possible. My plan is to be celebrating her 102nd birthday with her next month.
To keep it easy and fun let's do another "Anything Goes" theme. The prize to the winner, by random draw, for this month's challenge is a $25 gift certificate to Simon Says Stamp.
Rules:
You can choose to make any papercraft / altered art creation you like. You may enter a maximum of 2 times as long as it fits in with the theme and is a new creation that you have created yourself. You will have until the 28th of February to post your entry. The challenge will close at 12 midnight Chicago time.

1. Add this tag to your entry lovechallenge#26 all one word.
2. Post to our groups photo pool.
3. Share it here in the discussion thread.
Sharing to here can be done by copying your photo's https address from your Flickr photo stream and pasting it between two brackets. [https address]
If you are super creative and have more than two projects please do share them with us in the regular photo stream. However, because we are still growing we are going to limit the challenge chances to two for now. I will do everything I can to spread the word. I hope you will do the same so that we can grow and make our challenges more fun.

Thanks to everyone for your prayers and well wishes. Auntie Lydia is out of rehab and she is back in her own apartment in the senior living community. She is requiring a bit more help and is going to have be content with a walker for now. All things considered she is truly amazing. I have spent 22 days since the beginning of the year away from home and it is good to be back. Hopefully, I can get back into a creative space. I am so happy to see all your beautiful entries and they are going to be wonderful inspiration.
