Swirlydoos' June Kit Reveal Blog Hop

Welcome to Swirlydoos' June Kit, Antiquities, Reveal Blog Hop Block Party!!
If you came here from Lynn's Blog, then you are on the right track. If not, go back to Swirlydoos' blog and start from there. We have some amazing projects for you to see today and as a bonus we have a very special guest joining in the fun and offering a prize!!

I've done three layouts for this reveal. I love the Bo-Bunny papers and all the gorgeous embellishments. The colors are so rich and rustic!
This is a sneak peak for the Swirlyhues palette put together by our talented Vicky! You get to see the whole Storyboard soon....

This is one of my favorite pictures of my dad and me. Since moving to Washignton, I haven't seen him in eight months. I miss him so much. And with Father's Day coming soon it makes it harder to adjust being so far away. If you're reading this, I love you, Daddy!

One of a Kind Dad

You can find the oh so pretty matching butterflies at my Etsy Shop.

 This page is based the June exclusive sketch. After, what? Eight years, I busted out my eyelets...lol!! I was able to line up the holes easily because of a handy tool called "Eyelet Friend". When fibers and eyelets were a "must have" years ago they made a eyelet placement template with lined up holes. I'm not sure you can find the template anymore, but the company name is Timeless Touches.

We took the kids horseback riding for they very first time. Let me tell you, they are natural riders!! Within half an hour the girls were already galloping!! Now, to buy our own horse...hehee!!!
Bandit

Isn't this sketch amazing!!!???

Okay, I so think my hubby looks like a big dork in this picture...lol!! I think he was in the middle of saying something. But, I thought Delilah looked soooo cute and had to scrap it!! She's such a Daddy's girl! His little darling laying her head on his shoulder....awwwww!!
#1 Dad
These butterflies are also from my Etsy Shop. Although I changed the blue color a bit since I already had them made. The blue edges were a lighter shade than the blue in the layout. I needed it darker. So, what I did was I took a small brush dipped it Juniper Glimmermist and painted the edges. Worked like a charm and I really like the results!

You have until midnight, eastern time, on Sunday, June 10th to complete the hop. Winners will be announced on the Swirlydoos Blog on June 11th. 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 sentence.
3: Finally, go back to the Swirlydoos blog and leave a comment letting us know how much fun you had AND tell us the sentence that was created with all of the special words you collected.
