Welcome to Swirlydoos' June Kit Reveal Blog Hop Block Party!!

IThe June kit is named ~ Antiquities!
(can I say it is BEYOND GORGEOUS!!)





If you came here from Irene Tan'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!!

Can I tell you I had SOOOOO much fun creating with this kit!!
I challenged myself to create a "manly" Trinket box....
with NO FLOWERS....can I tell you
that was ssssooo hard!!

and no bling......
just pure "manly~ness"!!


Do you think I succeeded???


You will want to make sure you check out my video tutorial on
Saturday, June 16th.....cause I'm going to show you
how I created the background paper I used on my box
for this months Technique Tag!! 




Here is a little sneak of the tag!




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!
My special word is : it
