Saturday December 10th by midnight EST, will be the last day to submit your Swirlyhues Layout for the challenge!! At which time, the DT will vote…
Hello My Scrapping Goddess's!! This month I will be your hostess for Swirlyhues, and if you are using the November Kit Beau Jardin then you have half of the work done for you already!! The kit is GORGEOUS!!!
Here are the rules of the color game… http://swirlydoos.blogspot.com/2011/11/november-swirlyhues-and-blog-hop.html%5Burl url=hyperlink url][/url]
We will use this thread to share all of your creations for this months color challenge. Layouts, cards, altered pieces, I want to see it all!! The color palette is soft and gorgeous, but you can follow Natasha's style and girlie grunge it up a bit!! As I have in my example. Water distressing, cut and lacing, inking and painting. Use your talents to your hearts content, but don't forget to use at least one tutorial for a technique on your project. I want to see FLOWERS…Handmade Flowers!!! You know how much I love them!!!
But whatever tutorial you choose, have fun with it, and if you could throw down a twist to that technique you tried?? Go for it!! And show us how it's done!! Dont forget to upload your projects to the gallery in the November SwirlyHues album because there is a chance to win a wonderful Swirlygoodness prize pack from me, and 2 of you will receive one of our highly coveted blog badges!
The challenge is open to EVERYONE!! So spread the word!! You can pull out your kit, you can pull out your stash!! Anything goes as long as you use the current colors and a tutorial from the forums. . I know you have stuff that you have been wanting to use for a LONG time. Get it out and get it done!!! I'm creating along with you. And by the end of the week, I will have created another flower tutorial to add to the arsenal we already have!!

Wow This was a tough one. Every single LO was a knockout!!! The endless creativity that everyone put into the same colors just amaze us!!! We went back to the voting board a few times on this one, and the winners are:
Novembers Scarlet Siren at #1 is Manda Kurtz!!!

"Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."November 10, 2011 at 4:45 pm #143080
