This month, Swirlydoos is a proud sponsoative flowers and Once Upon A Sketch. So, for your chance to win some very nice prizes, including a Swirlydoos Main kit, head on over to OUAS and join in on the fun using this weeks challenge and gorgeous sketch. I have used Zva Creative Flowers and crystal flourishes along with my own hand made flowers. The Journalling criteria/theme: is HOLIDAYS/VACATION. One of my fave vacations is a scrapbook retreat that Krissy (owner of Swirlydoos) sponsors called Swirly Camp. For the last 2 years we have stayed in a luxury Log Cabin tucked away in the mountains of Baily Colorado, with 15 of our very best scrapping buddies and scrapped dusk till dawn. Cooked, ate, slept and scrapped. Scrapping Heaven I tell you. We laughed till we cried till the wee hours of the morning. I look forward to our "holiday" every year now!! The photo's on the LO are of me in the snow the first year and a side view of the cabin. The layout was done with last months Swirlydoos kit.
The orange flowers are flowers I created using the Rose creations die from Spellbinders. The floral arrangement is enhanced by the beautiful blue roses, buds and leaves from Zva Creative.
I took one pack of the crystal flourishes and cut them in half. I used half of the flourish in this view of the LO. I used my Decorative Corner punch for the circle frame.
I used the other half od the flourish for this part of the LO. I also painted my chipboard letters with Lumiere paint and added tiny letter stickers from my stash
The large Blue flower, leaves and the smaller blue flowers are Zva Creative. I just love the frosted look of the flower that enhances my wintery theme of the LO.
