Anything Goes at the Outlawz Monday Greetings Challenge

I have a friend who turns 21 on February 29. It's a magical birthday, as it only happens once every four years.How many 84 year old women can say they're celebrating their 21st birthday?!
I couldn't let this special Leap Year month go by without making a calendar page for my desk calendar. It is literally an acrylic set of boxes, whose four sides sandwich my monthly calendar pages. Since the middle is hollow, I can fill it with whatever suits my fancy, and this month I must fill it with those adorable Valentine conversation hearts. Yum!
Today starts another Anything Goes Challenge at the Outlawz Monday Greetings. Our sponsor this week is Lacy Sunshine, and I got to play with a cuter-than-cute image called Rory - Catching Butterflies. Although it is still mighty cold this month, it's always wise to keep warm thoughts close to your heart. So Rory is showcased on my February calendar page to remind me that warmer weather will eventually wind its way to my neck of the woods.
After coloring her with Copics, I frame her with cardstock and cut her out and pieced the sentiment next to her. A few jeweled flowers keep the embellishments simple and flat enough to fit between the acrylic layers of my calendar box.
Be sure to link up your own creation for your chance to win images from Lacy Sunshine this week. Don't forget to check out the DT inspiration and leave a little love before you go--everyone needs a little love!
