Hello! Today I am sharing a scrapbook page that I created for a Swirlydoos challenge that is now open to the general public! In the past, it's only been open to kit subscribers. Why wouldn't you want to be a kit subscriber anyway, though?! The kits are jam packed with gorgeous papers, amazing embellishments and fabulous inks, stamps, and other goodies! How are you passing this up each month???!!!
Ok, back to the subject at hand! In each kit, there is a piece of paper that has the month's sketch listed on it. That is only one of many challenges on the forum that you can participate in. I have never really made it my mission to do the sketch challenge until yesterday. I just always said to myself that I would do it "later" or "another time". Well, 2 years later, this is the first one I'm participating in! I think I've waited long enough! HELLO!
This month's kit is chock full of beautiful papers from IOD and Bo Bunny! I just want to hoard these papers forever! Pinks, ivory and green is the color scheme, with some blue tossed in.
I pulled a bunch of embellishments and chose my paper and picture and got started! Here's the finished product!
Here are some closeups:
