Welcome to Swirlydoos' January Blog Hop Block Party!!

Happy New Year and welcome to Swirlydoos January Kit Reveal Blog Hop BLOCK PARTY!!! If you came here from Rae'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 4 manufacturer blogs that are joining in the fun!! There are 5 prize packs up for grabs so make sure to follow along and have fun!!?

My first page is based on our kit sketch:
and here's my take on it:
and some close up's:
I put on some Gesso, placed my lace and Bo Bunny's ornament and sprinkled it with some fine glitter.
For the pearl swirls, I simply took some pearl strand and my glue gun, formed the pearl strand and glued it down.

my second page is based on our monthly, *SwirlyHues Challenge* sketch:
and here's my page for it:
In Swirlydoos main kit, came a GORGEOUS Bo Bunny stamp, so instead of using layers of paper, I stamped my design with Gesso and got it sprinkled with some fine glitter. This page also made me do a lot of fussy cutting and I really love the end result. Here are some close up"s:
And here is a card I made:
and some close up's:
That's it for today! I still have lots of paper and goodies left, so... that will keep my bussy for the next couple of days... lol

You have until midnight, eastern time, on January 15th to complete the hop. 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.
