Heartfelt creations and Swirlydoos!

What a winning combination in my mind anyways!  I played along with the the SwirlyHues Challenge at Swirlydoos!  Did you know that anyone can play along there are no restrictions you do not have to be a Swirlydoos Kit subscriber to play! (Even though I am because they have the best kits around, IMO) Here is what we had to do follow the story board... how easy is that!  They provide the colors and a sketch and you select any tutorial from the Swirlydoos extensive list of tutorial and voila you have a completed page!  Here is this months Storyboard:

And for my page I used my Heartfelt Creations stamp to embellish and to create all my flowers!  Here is what I came up with!

You can find a detailed step by step instructions on the Heartfelt Creations Blog along with all the stamps used in the creation of this page.  I'm also playing along with Shopping Our Stash as there challenge this week is to use primarily blue on your page!  But for now a few highlights and closeups... Flowers are my favorite embellishment and honestly I can't remember the last time I used pre-made flowers!  I just adore making my own!  Here is a closeup of the flowers...

Next thing I wanted to show you is the little trinket that I made of the band!  I found a picture of them online and using Glossy accent I secured the image to a Tim Holtz Crystal, the image blured a bit since I have an Ink printer, I'm guessing that a layer printer would not have bled so much but I like it anyways! 

and of course I have to give you a better look at my hottie Colin... Yum! 

And of course a page would not be a swirly page without the mandatory butterfly!  OK they are not mandatory but they should be!

Well with that there is only one thing left to do!  Of course that is leave you with one of my favorite Trews songs!  Check out Colin being his yummy self here in Hold Me!  Gosh I just love it!!
