lovey dovey giveaway!

I’m not one to say “aww” or “how sweet” when someone tries to sweep me off my feet. Honestly, I have never been into the sappy stuff. I hardly cry over romantic movies, and I definitely don’t tear up over it. Every now and then, I like the lovey dovey things, but trust me, it’s not very often. Thus, you hardly see me scrapbook love themed layouts. It’s just not my thing.

However, I challenged myself to give the lovey dovey a try.

Here’s a layout about my brother and his girlfriend:

Have you seen that paper before?! If not, then you should pick up a copy of Issue #47 of Scrapbook Magazine because they’ve got a free set of exclusive papers from American Crafts. Also, did you notice how I used the “all you need is love” sticker from SRM above my photos? I think it adds a great touch to my page! (Thanks again, Deana!)

Okay, enough of the lovey dovey, haha! …so I finished one layout, and that was it. So much for a challenge, right?!

Instead, I wanted to share a layout that I finished at Scrapbook Depot yesterday at our monthly crop. This layout features the August kit from My Paper Tree House. It’s loaded with some fun stuff to work with, so if you haven’t already, make sure to pick up yours today!

Does it count that I scrapped about how I’m lovey dovey over going to the beach?! πŸ˜‰

…so what lovey dovey things sweep you off your feet? What’s romantic to you? What makes you swoon?

Let me know in a comment, and I’ll enter your name into a drawing for a Technique Tuesday kit! Everything to make the layout below will be included in the kit, including the stamps and ink pads.

You have until Sunday, August 22nd to play along!

For an additional entry into the drawing, share the giveaway somewhere else online OR subscribe to my blog via email (on the left sidebar). Please make sure to let me know if you did either or both, so I know to include your additional entries when I draw a winner.

  3. Love all of the layouts–fave is the one of the beach and the pups!
    What makes me lovey dovey–my husband! Still! After almost 11 years! Never thought I’d meet anyone that would make me feel that way… But, I did!
    Thanks for a chance at the giveaway!

  4. Alice

    When my younger son see’s his older brother after only being apart for a few hours! Its amazing how much he loves his big brother!

  5. Love those LO’s, I’m kinda like you though…I don’t get too lovey dovey over things except for my kids and furbaby! I’m already a subscriber so thanks for the chance to win!! πŸ™‚

  6. What’s lovey dovey to me? When I come home and dinner has been made, and it’s not just a frozen pizza, LOL!

  7. Sean

    Best layout I’ve seen in years and I finally made it back onto ROL! Maybe Ashley and I will become famous!

  8. Pam

    I lovey dovey my dogs too. I’m actually quite a sap and cry at the silliest movies (Little Mermaid). Great layouts and your dogs just keep getting cuter and cuter! Love their faces. I already follow your blog faithfully. Thanks!

  9. Already a subscriber. Love your lovey dovey layout of your brother and his girlfriend. After 35 years of marriage there isn’t too much swooning:)

  10. You nailed lovely dovey! Those two are very lovely dovey! πŸ™‚

    Like you, I tend not to be too mushy gushy, lovey dovey, but..there are moments here and there…like when my big 6’4″ guy is fussing over our lil doggies, or when we’re going through a difficult time and I see him there supporting me through it when I know his heart is breaking too. While kind of at the opposite ends of the spectrum, those moments make me realize how lucky I am. But never tell him I said it..his head would explode, lol.

  12. Hi Sarah,
    I’ve been following you via email and blog.
    Lovey dovey to me is a single flower. Doesn’t have to be a rose. I love flowers that last longer. Also lovey dovey is a hug, a kiss, a surprise, watching the sunset or sunrise, walking along the beach. hmmm guess I better stop. lol

  13. Gorgeous layouts!

    You know it’s the little things. I’d much rather have a random wild flower from a ditch than a dozen red roses. I’d rather have my fav choc chip cookie than a box of chocolates. It’s just knowing that DH is thinking of me that makes me happy.

  14. I am a subscriber. I feel all lovey dovey about making wedding layouts.

  15. Michel E

    I subscribe to your blog. Every anniversary my husband always picks out just the right card and write a note in it which always makes me cry. He always knows just what to way. I love him with all my heart.

  16. Ami diekemper

    I get so lovey-dovey when my hubby is playing tea-party or house with one of our girls (we have 3). I get so mushy towards him….

  17. I’m totally lovey-dovey…. a total sap too πŸ˜‰ LOL I think the beach totally counts — love these layouts!!

  18. some songs make me feel mushy, and some movies πŸ™‚ Or a weekend away without the kids πŸ˜‰

  19. WOW! I am in LOVE with these LO’s…fantastic…but I am not much of a lovey dovey type girl either. Hubby is far more romantic than me. He almost always leaves a sweet little message on my grocery list and he has been known to leave me love notes in the shower with the kids bath crayons lol! I really should scrap about it sometime I guess. Thanks for the push in the lovey dovey department:)

  20. Misty

    well, I love the sappy stuff, but do not get much of it b/c my hubby is NOT a sappy person…AT ALL!!! So, when he does show some sort of affection (by accident usually…lol), my heart just melts!!!

    Love your layouts!!!

  21. Misty

    oh yeah, posted about it over on the GS board at Two Peas πŸ™‚

  22. Kath

    I LOVE when my husband fills my gas tank for me. Seriously, getting into my car and finding it full of gas almost makes me swoon. Well, at least it’s good for miles of smiles!

  23. I love when my hubby sings or plays his guitar. He even wrote and sang/played guitar to me at our wedding. I cried thru the whole thing!

  24. I am a VERY SAPPY person. And well my DH is the complete opposite. But The 1 thing he does do is every morning @ 430am he kisses me goodbye and then go to each of our 3 boys room and kiss them goodbye. πŸ™‚
    How SWEET is That????

    I’m also an email subscriber – I love that option!

  26. conniemelancon

    I am a very sappy person too! It doesn’t take make for me to cry.
    Love the LO’s.

  27. Su C.

    I love all of these layouts, they are great! My favorite though is the one of the dogs on the beach probably since two mini schnauzers own us! I love my hubby making cards for me instead of buying them. We’ve done this for years, before I ever started scrapping.

  28. Yummo, love ur lovey covey page, lol, spotted it on FB and had to come have a closer looksy. I love how uv used the SRM stickers too, saw these the other day for the first time, gotta get me some πŸ˜€

  31. Rebecca Yahrling

  32. Looooooooove these pages!!! Amazing work as always Sarah. πŸ˜‰ I’m VERY into lovey-dovey. Sappy movies and books are my favs! πŸ˜‰ My hubby’s a pretty romantic guy too, so that works out for me. πŸ™‚

  34. Rebecca

    Coming home from work to find dinner already made…that sends me over the moon!

  35. Lisa D(pdrnc)

    I’m with you. Not too lovey-dovey. I remind my hubby how lucky he is with that. What makes me swoon though is when I see him with our boys. He’s a great father and I think that when I see him doing things with them, I get this warm and fuzzy feeling. Corny, I know.

  36. Chris Aiton

    I am already a subscriber via email to your blog as well as on my reader – I am lovey dovey about a variety of things but especially my DH, son, cat, and TAAFOMFT!

  37. ADORABLE layouts Sarah! just depends on what is lovey dovey for me. I usually get that way when someone has done something nice for one of my family.

  38. I love your layouts! So cute!
    Lovey Dovey has different levels πŸ˜‰ I get all mushed up when my boys do sweet things for me or for no reason, they tell me they love me… when hubs brings home flowers, just because… when my puppy lays on my feet and falls asleep while I’m doing dishes… when our parrot calls me Mommy too πŸ™‚ All such sweet lovey dovey moments!
    TFS! hugs, margie

  39. PS, I now subscribe to your blog too! I don’t know why I didn’t before! LOL! Thanks and hugs :*)

  40. Love your layouts Sarah…or should I say I LOVEY DOVEY your layouts??? I or course already subscribe to you blog…

  41. Debby Westbrook

    Your lo’s are awesome. What makes me lovey, dovey is the way my husband looks at me and the way we hold hands when we go for walks. Thanks for the chance to win. I’m already a email subscriber.

  42. kat

    my boyfriend will randomly send me cards via snail mail…i love it! πŸ™‚

  43. Great pages!! I especially like the beach page.

    I’m not much of a lovey dovey girl myself, but Nate always manages to get me when he surprises me with flowers and Sour Jelly Bellys πŸ™‚

  44. DebLong

    I’m not very lovey-dovey in general, but kids and puppies do me in!

  45. My hubs can have anything he wants when he speaks highly of me in public (even FB counts). I just get giddy when I hear him tell someone else how wonderful he thinks I am or how much he loves me.

  46. Jodee

    I like when my hubby does romantic things, like surprising me with flowers or a gift, or lighting candles for supper!

  47. Love your sweet layouts!! As for what makes me swoon… fun surprises!! πŸ™‚

  48. Julie Tucker-Wolek

  49. NanaBeth

    Yellow roses bring me to my knees every time!

  50. It’s obvious, but, my hubby makes me lovey dovey. We’ve been together since grade 9 history class, 24 yrs now. We grew up together. I love him.

  51. Mustangkayla

    A night ALONE at home, no kids, no having to cook or clean would make me swoon. lol… Exciting huh? Its been at least 5 years since I have had my house to myself and boy does it ever sound incredible!

  52. June

    I’m all lovey dovey around the DGKs…especially the only boy…he’s gonna break some hearts someday…Awesome prize…thanks for the chance to win…

  53. I think you’re lovey dovey when you see new scrapbooking stuff…. πŸ˜‰

    Lovey the new LO’s… especially that big circle you made. It rocks… πŸ™‚

  54. Well, I cry at almost every movie NO JOKE, it doesn’t matter if I’ve seen it 100 times and I know what’s going to happen, I’m ugly crying lol.

    As for what makes me swoon well there’s two things every once in awhile he’ll flash this boyish grin and gets this sparkle in his big brown eyes and I’m puddy in his hands even after 8.5 years.

    Also watching him play with children our own or others makes my heart melt, he’s very good with them.

    Your Layouts are great, both have just the right amount of lovey dovey.

  55. Lovey-Dovey the layouts…. sooooo lovely!!! As for what makes me swoon…. Getting flowers ALWAYS make me cry….

    I’m not very lovey-dovey either. What’s romantic to me is if dh takes my car to be washed – LOL!

  65. Jennybean

    What makes me feel lovey dovey is when hubby cleans the house without complaining!

  66. DeniseB

    Lovey dovey to me is my hubby taking me to Disneyland… my favorite place! He has fun there, but it’s not his top choice.

  67. Lol…chocolate makes me swoon! πŸ˜€

  68. Melinda Wilson

    My hubby is my lovey dovey and when he wants me to snuggle up to him on the sofa so he can softly massage my back is wonderful!

  69. Well I think you do lovey dovey quite well LOL!!! I guess I’m a lovey dovey person in many ways, though when it comes to scrapping I don’t think it shows. Good thing maybe LOL.

  70. I love the lovey-dovey layouts! πŸ™‚ And the beach totally counts!

    As far as sweeping me off me feet goes, a certain someone cooking dinner works pretty well. πŸ™‚

  71. Lara Carson

    I love lovey-dovey…I love to make sappy pages about hubby and kids…I am not good putting words out of my mouth all the time but I can write the things I want to say down and get out all the goodness that I cannot find in the right words to say!

  72. Keesha

    I gotta say the hubby doing dishes really does make me swoon… I know that it’s something he doesn’t have to do, but he does it just for me. He’s a keeper!

  73. SHerry

    I’m an old fashioned girl… I love flowers, chocolates, and a man who opens doors for me. I love to feel girlie and like a lady!

  74. Kelly

    aawww! I am totally swept off my feet everytime one of my son’s (Owen James age 4 1/2 and Jakob Paul age 2) give me a kiss and say I love you for no reason what so ever! It’s the best feeling ever!

  75. Gorgeous layouts!!! Lovey-dovey to me is breakfast (with fresh juice and strawberries) in bed!! or just a simple “I love you” πŸ™‚
    Thanks for a chance to win!

  76. I just subscribed to your blog!!!

  77. Today I was at my daughter’s house when my 3 month old grandson woke from his nap. I went to get him and as soon as he saw me, he smiled real wide and started coo-ing. My heart completely melted! Now THAT’s Lovey Dovey!

  78. great lo’s as always! I am super lovey dovey- I wasn’t until I met my husband. He brings out the gooshy side of me!!
