Weekly Challenge: "Romance"

This week we have a fun theme, and one which presents lots of possibilities: Romance!

Once I began thinking about romance, I realized I would need a little help with the meaning, since suddenly it seemed like there were too many. And that's where it got interesting!

According to the Random House Dictionary, romance is:
1 : a story that tells of heroic deeds, adventure, and love
2 : a medieval story or poem telling of mysterious or supernatural events
3 : a love affair
4 : a made-up, fanciful story
5 : an appealing or romantic quality

So, you see, the sky's the limit on this one! Put on your thinking caps and create something fanciful, heroic, mysterious, or lover-ly. We could be thinking Valentine's Day, Knights of the Round Table, romance novels, fairy tales, or a weekend in Paris! I can't wait to get started!

See the details for entering in the sidebar at the right. But the short and sweet is: Leave a comment on this post before 12 noon EST on Sunday November 22 with a link to your blog where your artwork is residing. We'll post it here along with all the other entries.

By submitting an entry in the weekly challenge, you are automatically entered in the November giveaway! The prize is a wonderful Christmas blog header from our lovely and talented team member, LuLu of Coastal Sisters! Have fun!
