Swirlydoos - February Round Robin Challenge

I decided to play in the Feb. Round Robin Challenge at Swirlydoos. The kit this month is "Things Remembered" and it's so beautiful! I don't know how Krissy does it but her kits are to die! She has a knack of picking things out that coordinate beautifully and always has the latest "must have" trends!

John's mother died last year and I thought this was the perfect papers and embellies to do a page of her. You always here horror stories of Mother-in-laws but this woman was like no other. She was the sweetest woman I've ever known. I do not believe I've ever heard her say a bad word about anyone. I loved her dearly.

The Round Robin Challenge is a 4 tiered scraplift. One person makes a scrapbook page, then the other person scraplifts it, then the next scraplifts that last person and so on.

Here was my take:

I hand made the flowers using paper from the kit and the brown ones were made from the add on cardstock from the kit. You can find the instructions for these flowers Here (in the tutorial section at Swirlydoos).
I added a little Diamond Dust to make them sparkley :o). The centers were brads from the previous Swirlydoo kit "Retro Tapestry).

The Dusty Attic chipboard was a part of the Feb. Things Remembered Swirlydoo kit. I misted it with Tattered Angels "Sunkissed Peach" glimmer mist which also came with the kit and also some Tattered Angels "Robins Egg" Glimmer mist I had on hand. I also toped that off with a coat of Glossy Accents by Ranger. The dots I made with Liquid Pearls "Ocean Mist" which came with the Jan. Retro Tapestry Swirlydoos Kit and then I added a metal charm and a dot of "Bisque" Liquid Pearls I had in my stash.

The bird was a stamp I bought from Basic Grey, I stamped it on some chipboard and cut it out. I used the same glimmer mists that I used on the key and then I smeared a little of the Ocean Blue Liquid Pears on top of that. The feathers behind the bird came from the Feb. Swirlydoos kit also!

My Swirlydoos March kit is on it's way and I can't wait to see the goodies that are in this one! Stay tuned!
