Swirlydoos' August BLOG HOP and Reveal!

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


If you came here from Lisa G'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 !!


I have the incredible honor of creating the "Anatomy of a Page" layout this month, and this is what I have cooked up for you. To play along, the photo tutorial is in the Swirlydoos forum!




Here's another project for you, creating by using the Swirlydoos sketch (below) with a totally different color palette! (I love it that you can create completely different looks within each of the Swirlydoo's Kits!)

Here's the sketch...


And here is my layout...




That's all for now, from me, but I will bring your more projects from this kit later this month. Keep on hopping, though, because you are going to be completely inspired by the crazy, talented team!
