Swirlydoos May Kit Reveal

Welcome to the Swirlydoos "Au Naturale"
May kit reveal blog hop party!

If you came here from Andie's blog, then you are on the right track. If not, go back to the 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 prizes for participation in this hop. Also, be sure to check out Swirlydoos on Facebook and "Like Us" too!

I was over the moon excited when I found out that the May kit had Prima's Lyric papers paired with Pink Paislee's Hope Chest... two of my favourite collections this season! This is a picture of my brother in-law and his new bride. I added a large Dusty Attic skeleton clock from my stash to complement this kit. BTW - the flower add-on this month so heavenly.

Here is the SUPER gorgeous sketch I used from this month's kit (I flipped it). I think this is my all time favourite Swirly-sketch!

This is a picture of me at 5 years old when I fell asleep at a wedding. I used Prima's May Palette as inspiration and added a Dusty Attic chipboard title to complement this amazing kit. Really cool circle elements this month!

I just love making gift boxes, for this one I used only one single sheet of paper, one flower and a template from DigiChick. It is a really nice size to hold treats or even a gift card.

This is what the cupcake gift box looks like before assembling it.

A little thank-you card I made using some left-overs from cut papers (to match the gift box).

Here is a jar similar to the one I made for National Scrapbook Day, using a flower from my new Pearl and Lace Flower tutorial (no sewing required!). Also, see the homemade foot scrub recipe that can go into the jar to make a wonderful end of the school year teacher gift.
You have until midnight, eastern time, on Friday 5/17 to complete the hop. Winners will be announced on the Swirlydoos Blog on Saturday 5/18. In order to qualify to win here is what you need to do:

1: Visit all of the blogs and leave a comment on each. This way we know you were there. Become a follower if you're not already. Take your time. There are REALLY beautiful things to see along the way.

2: Before you leave each blog, look for the “special” words and write it down.
Once you have visited all the blogs and collected all the special words, they will create a sentence.

3: Finally, go back to the Swirlydoos blog and leave a comment letting us know how much fun you had, tell us the sentence that was created with all of the special words you collected. Can't wait to hear from you.

Lastly, here is a peek at the Swirlydoos "Au Naturale" main kit (middle) and add-ons. To become a subscriber and never miss a gorgeous Swirlydoos kit click here.

My special word is: WHAT

I still have LOTS more of my kit to play with and will be back soon to reveal 2 more projects.
