Week 285: SWOON

February is just around the corner and soon many will be swooning over the next big holiday, Valentine's Day!  Even if you don't find this word very exciting, you have to admit it's rather fun to say!

Need a little help defining the cue this week?  Here's a little help:

  1. 1.

    faint from extreme emotion.
    "I don't want a nurse who swoons at the sight of blood"

    • be emotionally affected by someone or something that one admires; become ecstatic.
      "teenagers swoon over Japanese pop singers"
  1. 1.

    an occurrence of fainting.
    "her strength ebbed away and she fell into a swoon"

As always, remember the following CAS guidelines when creating your design:
  1. One main image
  2. Lots of open space, uncluttered
  3. Limited layers & embellishments
  4. Quick & easy to recreate (Note: It may take a while to create a design you like, but once you have that design, making more should be a piece of cake!)
Let's take a look at what the design team and this week's guest designer created for inspiration!
