Week 282: HUG

Need a hug?  You've come to the right place!  We're thinking there will be plenty to go around in the gallery!

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 see what the design team and this week's guest designer created for inspiration!
