Swirlydoos ATC's with the Project Add-on

This month Project Add-on is a plethora of new items to make Artist Trading Cards. These little mini projects are fun to do. Here are a few that I made.

Not sure what to do with your ATC's? I added the above ATC to my scrapbook page.

Also, keep an ear out for the upcoming ATC contest at Swirlydoos!

I did this page for Swirlyhues which will reveal on the 10th. So, you'll have to come back to see the full Storyboard :) Trust me, it's gorgeous!!! The butterflies I used are from my Etsy Shop.
Simply Adorable

For this page I used the monthly exclusive sketch. The design is amazing. Instead of three small photos, I used one long and skinny. I've been hoarding the Dusty Attic clocks and thought now was the time to use them. They worked perfectly with the sketch. Again, I used butterflies from my shop.

Here is the fabulous sketch

This kit is sooo awesome. I was able to make three layout with three completely different color schemes.

You have until midnight, eastern time, on Monday, May 7th to complete the hop. Winners will be announced on the Swirlydoos Blog on May 8th. 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 REALLY beautiful things to see along the way.
2: Before you leave each blog, look for the “special” words and write it down.
Once you have visited all the blogs and collected all the special words, they will create a QUESTION.
3: Finally, go back to the Swirlydoos blog and leave a comment letting us know how much fun you had AND tell us the QUESTION that was created with all of the special words you collected AND GIVE US YOUR ANSWERS.
