February 2019 Main Challenge
ALWAYS & QUOTE


Welcome to the month of February and to all of you
who have been waiting for a brand new Main Challenge
here at More Than Words!

We will not make you wait any longer...
Our Main Challenge is based on a word inspiration and a creative challenge.

Word Inspiration - ALWAYS
Creative Challenge - QUOTE

What does the word ALWAYS inspire you to create?
You can choose to use the actual word somewhere on your project or simply be inspired by it. Please explain in your blog post how it inspired you if it isn't obvious in your work.

Quotes are great to use on our projects. They can inspire us or reinforce a sentiment we want to express. Keeping our monthly word in mind, we want you to use a favorite QUOTE on your creation!



Please check out all our challenge rules in the RULES tab above.


Now let's see what our fabulous DT has come up with 
inspired by the ALWAYS & QUOTE main challenge!


Daisy: My children are what I have most precious. My love for them is unconditional. We are very caring with each other and I love it. From day to day I love them more and more. I know I will ALWAYS love them, no matter what happens. For the QUOTE challenge, I used stickers from Les Créations Edith Cloutier as they expressed very well what I meant for this page.


Nicole: This month's word inspired me to create a layout of my boyfriend and I. Love is by far my favorite scrapbooking theme and I hope to ALWAYS have pictures of us like this one to create with. For the creative challenge I used a QUOTE from one of my favorite books by Khalil Gibran, The Prophet. These beautiful words are definitely what my partner and I strive for in our relationship.


Caroline: This man is the man of my life. I wish that we will ALWAYS be together. We went through ups and downs in the last 17 years, but love has always been true and strong between us. For the QUOTE I used some sticker 
phrases that were perfect to tell our story.


Torsa: I ALWAYS believe nothing is permanent in my life except the bond between me and my husband. I want to be with him until my last breath and want to enjoy each and every moment with him. I have added my favorite QUOTE in my journal.


Anat: The QUOTE I've chosen is very important to me: "It ALWAYS seems impossible until it's done." In order to remember it, I decided to make a canvas which I can hang in my home. Looking forward to see you all play with us!


Di: The word ALWAYS reminded me about scrapbooking in general and how we are preserving our family memories forever, hence the little QUOTE I have used. I wanted to scrap this photo so it too would be preserved 
as a wonderful memory captured.


Rosalie: My QUOTE is related to my belief that we ALWAYS need to take time to experience our world and how we travel through life.


Mary: "Hold on tight to your dreams" is one of my favorite QUOTES and this challenge inspired me to create a page about that. I believe that we should never give up on our dreams. We owe it to ourselves to hold on to them tight... ALWAYS.


France: I am enjoying creating some layouts of my friend's daughter as she is just adorable. For a little girl I love this QUOTE that I found: "Be your own kind of beautiful." It's such a powerful sentiment. I had in my stash the word ALWAYS as a die and it's a favorite of mine to use. I hope you enjoy my take 
on this challenge and join in on the fun.


Alicja: I was inspired by the R.W. Emerson QUOTE: "Nature always wears the colors of the spirit." I used it as the title of my layout. I love using natural elements in my projects and this theme is ALWAYS close to my heart.


Daria: It seems to me important to ALWAYS be yourself. To express this, I used the QUOTE : "Close your eyes, open your mind, spread your wings and jump." 
I think these words should resonate in each of us.


Edith: When I think about the word ALWAYS, I think about the love that unites us, my husband and I. He is my soulmate and I want to spend the rest of my life with him. The QUOTE that I used illustrates our relationship very well. Perfect love does not exist, but love does not have to be perfect. It just needs to be true.


Hina: The word ALWAYS inspired me to create a Winter layout. Like the seasons always change, take a lesson from them and be ready for the changes in life and the challenges thereon. Like the QUOTE on my pages says, "be open 
to whatever comes next... let it snow."


Jess: The word ALWAYS was my inspiration to scrap my fabulous hubby as he is the love of my life. I used the QUOTE 'You will forever be my always' to stay true 
to the word and theme of this challenge.


Nuneka: Being a positive person is a choice we make. We have that option every morning when we wake up and I ALWAYS take it. I always believe that something wonderful is about to happen, as my QUOTE says.


Priya: You ALWAYS need a friend who makes you happy. I was inspired by the word to create a layout on friendship. For the creative challenge, I added the QUOTE: "Good times and crazy friends make the best memories."


Don't waste any time! Be inspired by our DT and get creating!
