Hi Girls, I've really missed you ladies! I will be your hostess for the Swirly Girl Challenge for this month. I thought it would be fun to do a take on the whole Christmas in July theme, and of course nothing would be complete without my dreamboat, Timmy!
So first of all, let's keep this simple. The challenge is open to anyone (including all Desgin Team Members, even Krissy) who has ever purchased a Swirlydoos Kit. So yes, if you're no longer an active member but can use at least 50% Swirly stuff you qualify 🙂
Secondly, let's be honest. You girls are Savages! Clearly you will be more inspired by the RAK than by my layout, lol! So here's what's up for grabs. This Timmy inspired prize will be sent to the owner of the layout that my mom likes the best…seriously! I thought this would be a fun way to level out the playing field. My mom knits, sews and oil paints, but doesn't have a clue about scrapbooking. She's not going to know who's a DT member, who participates in the forums the most, or even anything about techniques. She's literally just going to choose the project that she likes the best from an artistic point of view.
Finally, the challenge itself. All you have to do is use either inspiration or a technique from one of Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas (2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, or 2011). Then, let us know which tag and which year you gained your inspiration from.
For example, on my lo I gained inspiration from 2011 Day 4 tag to use my movers and shapers that I never seem to use. I used my Family movers and shapers die at the bottom.
I also gained inspiration from 2010 Day 9 to use rosettes.
Here's the actual layout that I did with a picture of my sister and her family.
I hope you guys like challenge and I definitely hope you participate!! You can enter as many layouts as you want and don't forget to put them in the gallery. You have until Midnight July 31st to submit your entries. I can hardly wait to see what you do with this challengeJune 29, 2012 at 4:37 pm #172314June 29, 2012 at 4:48 pm #172315
