saturday...Swirlydoos October Kit Reveal and Blog Hop

Welcome to Swirlydoos' October Kit Reveal Blog Hop Block Party!!

If you came here from Petaloo s blog, then you are on the right track. If not, go back to Swirlydoos' blog and start from there. We have some amazing projects for you to see today! Make sure to leave a comment on all of the blogs for a chance to win!!! Check out Swirlydoos on Facebook and Like Us!!!

This is my first month as a designer for Swirlydoos and I gotta tell you, this kit is GORGEOUS! I love the new BoBunny Collections-The Avenues and Krissy did a phenomenal job, as always, pulling different papers and embellies into one cohesive kit! This kit is so versatile and you will see how everyone used it.

Swirlydoos Sweetest Thing October Kit

Come back throughout the month and I'll share close up pictures and tip and techniques on each one of my layouts.

Now, without any further ado, are my first projects using the Swirlydoos October Kit, The Sweetest Thing!

"Happily Ever After" Layout
My first layout is a wedding layout. This will be my last page in my wedding album (although I'm still missing another 5 pages). I just love this picture of hubby and I at the beach! I used a bunch of flowers from the Signature Flower Kit  to frame my photo. 

"Sweet Escape" Layout
For this layout I went with a more playful and bright aproach to the kit. My mother in law took this picture of my hubby and at Bahamas last May during our cruise and  I just love it! I painted the trim included in the kit bright orange with the Silk paint included in the kit as well to add a pop of color. I also colored the topiary and tucked it into my cluster. I did a whole lot of water distressing on this page!

"Always be Yourself" Layout
This layout is based on this month's sketch. At first it was intimidating to use 3 pictures on a layout but after I started this page came together easily! I was having a particularly bad day this particular day that the pictures were taken and the title and journaling are very meaningful to me. I also colored the little topiary with the Silk paint from the kit and Smooch paint from my stash.

Here's this month's sketch:

You have until midnight, eastern time, on 10/5 to complete the hop. Winners will be announced on the Swirlydoos' blog on Saturday 10/6. In order to qualify to win here is what you need to do:
