This month, designer Kim challenged the design team to use this picture on a layout.
And, we are challenging YOU to figure out which designer made each layout!

Can you guess which one is mine? 
Every month Beggahuna draws a sketch, exclusively for Swirlydoos.
Here's this month's sketch:
And here is my take on it:
This picture is of me holding my grandson for the very first time.
I can not express in words how I felt. Only a grandma will understand.
 This month Swirlydoos features some of these
G OR G E O U S butterflies, in one of the AddOns.
These are handmade by fellow DT member Angelica Franssen.
And honestly, they are soooo beautiful!
Angelica has her own Etsy store where she sells lots and lots of handmade embellishments.
I think you WANNA visit her store.

 This page is about my youndest daughter who got her braces finally off after 2 years.
 This month we got some raffia in the Main Kit and I used it to make some fancy leaves.
 These beautiful mint color Prima roses, came also in the Main Kit. I love the subtile script on them. I gave them a little shimmer by using Iridescent Medium (Windsor & Newton)
 Look at the detail of these Beautiful butterflies, by Angelica Franssen.
I'm sorry for the smearing on the journaling. I found that it is impossible to write over Distress Paints, with a fineliner, so I had to go over the letters more than once, which makes them a little blur looking. I didn't mind in the end cause the Prima stencil I used was a distressed one, (no straight lines) So, I'm okay with it.
And lastly I have a card to share. I love the quote on it, cause it is oh so TRUE!
Please remember to visit Angelica's Little Scrap Shop
for the most gorgeous butterflies and other embellishments.
You won't regret it!
