Swirlydoos September Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Swirlydoos "Gilted Pleasure"
September kit reveal blog hop party!

If you came here from Heidi'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!

My first layout was inspired by the beautiful kit sketch (below) this month. The paper was perfect for this picture taken by my husband on our trip to Venice (12 years ago!).

Here is a close-up of the pretty flowers and the gorgeous Dusty Attic chipboard I added to complement the kit. The chipboard was inked and then splattered with the gold Silks glaze in the kit.

Here is a peek at the sketch (I flipped it).

Next is a snap of my hubby and baby girl 5 years ago while camping. I've been wanting to scrap this one for a while and finally got around to it. Added a Dusty Attic clock from my stash to polish things off.

Here is a closer look. Pretty flowers and metal in this kit!

Lastly for today, I used a Lucky 8 punch to create a die cut to showcase my middle son as a baby on this layout. He is now 8 years old!

Take a look at the awesome dark green flowers and wood feathers in this kit!

You have until midnight, Eastern time, on Thursday 9/5 to complete the hop. Winners will be announced on the Swirlydoos Blog on Friday 9/6. 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.
