Swirlydoos' March BLOG HOP BLOCK PARTY!

Welcome to Swirlydoos' MarchKit Reveal Blog Hop Block Party!!

If you came here from Tiffany'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 and as a bonus we have 2 manufacturer blogs that are joining in the fun and a 3rd manufacturer offering a prize!! There are 4 prize packs up for grabs so make sure to follow along and have fun!!

Here is what I have worked on with the beautiful March kit! One of the things I like most about this kit is that the papers have quite a bit of versatility in style, and I could make completely different layouts, with completely differing color palettes!!

"HE was so pretty in pink"
A nod to my new son's apgar score after being born! He was born a couple of weeks early, and I had had some complications, so what a relief to see him pink up so well, and get to working those lungs out! In fact, he was crying before he even made it out of my womb completely - the doctors thought it was hilarious.


and

"No4"
These photos happened to be taken just a couple of hours prior to me going into preterm labor for the first time. My contractions were slowed... enough for my son to wait another 2 weeks, but he was still born 2.5 weeks early! Fun that these pictures were on that day though...



Thanks so much for hopping with us, and stopping by to see me!!

You have until midnight, eastern time, on March 15th to complete the hop. Winners will be announced on the Swirlydoos Blog on March 16th.  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 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 AND tell us the sentence that was created with all of the special words you collected.

My special word is : CAN'T

The party finishes up back at Swirlydoos!  Have fun!
