Valentine’s Day – Love is in the Air!

Today I am participating in a Valentine’s Day Magazine Challenge!! 

I am joining Katherine from Katherine’s Corner for this challenge and blog tour.  The challenge was to create a romantic style, Valentine inspired magazine cover.  We could use a magazine cover was like as inspiration or just create our own!

My magazine inspiration was a Victoria magazine with a soft romantic Valentine’s Day theme. And of course, I *love* macarons!

Below is my interpretation:

And this was my inspiration:

Here is a look without the wording on it below.

I had fun recreating this magazine cover! It allowed me to practice some photography skills. 

Take the tour with us!  There is no voting for this challenge.  

Katherine is drawing a name at random and the winner will receive a hard copy or Kindle copy of the book, The Nesting Place: It Doesn’t Have to Be Perfect to be Beautiful by Myquillyn Smith.

It made me appreciate how much thought goes into every picture that is shot for a magazine!

Enjoy the tour and Happy Valentine’s Day!! (if links don’t load, click the “An Inlinkz Link Up below)

    Oh my, your magazine cover is beautiful – the European-inspired theme makes me think of Downton Abbey and now Victoria – hope you love them as much as I do! So glad to be part of this creative team of bloggers! Nina @ Vintage Mama's Cottage

      Oh you are quite right – I was thinking last night how I should have added a little Victoria graphic where the Downton Abbey pic was… but it was too late and I was too tired! Happy Valentine's Day!
