Welcome to Swirlydoos 
November Kit Reveal 
Blog Hop BLOCK PARTY!!!  

That's right, we are having a party and you are all invited.  

We have some amazing projects for you to see today and as a bonus we have 3 manufacturer blogs that are joining in the fun!!  But wait!  We also have a Guest Designer along for the ride this month, Natasha Naranjo Aquirre!!!    *confetti in the air and noise makers galore*  There are 5 prize packs up for grabs so make sure to follow along and have fun!!
 

Take a look at Swirlydoos' November kit, Beau Jardin.  Breathe it in...  I love how beautifully Kaisercraft and Glitz play together.  Scrumptious!  The main kit is peppered with bits and bobs of nothing but FUN! This month's coordinated add ons are spectacular!  So much so, that when Krissy unveiled them to our subscribers, all but one has sold out! There are only a few of the embellishment kits left.  Check out our home page click here to see the add on kits.


LOOK at the pile of goodies that are up for grabs!

Swirlydoos is going to present one lucky winner with this over the top Glitz package!

 
May Arts - a GOB of ribbon .....*singing: Heaven, I'm in heaven*
Crafter's Workshop - 5 Templates, that's right 5 TEMPLATES!!!!!!
Clearsnap - A prize valued at $50  WOW!!!
Petaloo - check out the photo of the prizes!!!



You have until midnight, eastern time, on November 9th to complete the hop.  
In order to qualify to win you need to do just 3 easy things. Here they are:


  1. Visit all EIGHT blogs and leave a comment on each.  This way we know you were there.   :)  Become a follower if you're not already.  Grab a cuppa somethin' and take your time.  There are beautiful things to see along the way.
  2. Before you leave each blog,  look for the “special” word and write it down.  Once you have visited all the blogs and collected all the special words, they will create a sentence.
  3. Finally, head 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.
All winners will be randomly drawn.   Winners will be posted on this blog, Swirlydoos, on the 10th, which also happens to be the same day November's SwirlyHues Contest is unveiled. YAY!  You will have 7 days to claim your prize
 
Go forth and have a great time!!!!  Your blog hop block party starts over at Angelica's place!

Just in case something happens along the way and links don't work, here is the order of the blog hop and the links:

Shari said...

WOW what beautiful projects...each and everyone. Followed and already following some blogs and "like" on FB. Petaloo blog isn't updated and couldn't get a "word" from them. Here's the sentence...The Difference Between______Triumph is a Little Umph.

cvanholstein said...

Hello!
Thanks for the blog hop, now I will spend even MORE time on the computer admiring the work of these scrap-queens!
As written before by Shari, Petaloo did not post the blog hop, so no word from them.
Untill now, the sentence is:
"The difference between ..... triumph is a little umph"
Kind regards, Corina

Sandi Smith said...

Wow...so much inspiration on this amazing blog hop.
Petaloo blog isn't updated and couldn't get the secret word.. Here's what I have...``The difference between______triumph is a little umph.

Tammy said...

Lovin all the LO's!! I still gotta leave love at each blog, I had to see what everyone had done.. Gorgeous!! Is all I can say!!! I didn't see anything at petaloo when I went there but what I did get is "the difference between triumph _____ is a little umph." I'm thinking the missing word is failure.. Not sure though. :)

wischip said...

What a wonderfully tallented group of artists !! These blogs sites had beautiful works and I am very glad I had the chance to visit them all! Petaloo had wonderful LOs, but I found no special word. I did gather the following sentence though: The difference bewteen _____ triumph is a little umph"
Thank you for the Blog Hop Block Party!!

Karen said...

I don't do alot of blog hops but this one was definitely worth it, not for the giveaways but to see the work by some amazing artists, the tutorials, the techniques and their creativity. Thank you for putting this together and I tried Petaloo's blog a couple of times but no such luck, so I've come up with "The difference between _____ triumph is a little umph"

cvanholstein said...

Here is me, once again :S
I do not have facebook, so it was'nt possible to leave a message on the Crafter's workshop site. Sorry, hope that is not a problem...
kind regards, Corina

Cheryl Winget said...

So many beautiful projects on this hop. I was able to collect all the words except for the one on the Petaloo site - it hasn't updated. However, I believe the sentence is "The difference between try and triumph is a little umph!"

J&K said...

I love that you figured it out, what a great saying...The difference between try and triumph is a little umph! I, too did not find a word at Petaloo, but I still loved all of the sites

Jeyatha said...

Neat card.. I'm in love with idea of hopping as we get to know so many new ideas.. And the giveawayz are so good.. wish to win!

Jennifer said...

I am now a follower of your blog and via email! What amazing projects! Just gorgeous! And the prizes...incredible!! Thanks for the fun! Oh! The sentence is: The difference between try and triumph is a little umph. I didn't see the specific blog on Petaloo so I'm being honest and saying I saw the missing words on another comment. But I absolutely love the quote!!

prutsels said...

The only special word I am missing is Petaloos.Thanks for the inspiration, I guess we are all winners!

prutsels said...

The DIFFERENCE between..... TRIUMPh Is a little umph
Forgot to post the sentence!

Regina aka Mrs. Ham said...

What a great hop. I loved every project I saw. The Petaloo blog site wasn't updated. Here's the sentence I have. The Difference Between _________ Triump Is A Little Umph...(I'm guessing the missing words are "Try And").

Kathi said...

What gorgeous work and creativity. Thoughly enjoyed seeing all that awesomeness. The petaloo site isn't giving a word .
Here is what a got"The different between______triumph is a little umph"

Beatrice Lawson said...

Petaloo blog still not updated at noon on Monday... will try them later

Sherrenae - Sherri said...

Beautiful and inspirational work. Will keep checking back with Petaloo but so ...The DIFFERENCE between..... TRIUMPH Is a little umph

Jax said...

So much fun! What gorgeous and inspirational work. Visited everyone and got a feast for the eyes. As others have said the Petaloo post isn't up yet, but here is the sentence minus the Petaloo words: The difference between ( ) triumph is a little umph. (I'm guessing the missing words are "try and").

Looking forward to receiving my November kit!!!

Jeyatha said...

I kept waiting for getting the word from Petaloo but then.. "The DIFFERENCE BETWEEN --- TRIUMPH IS A LITTLE UMPH" is what I got.. It was a wonderful trip to hop so many blogz and get so many new ideas.. Happy crafting everybody..

Monica said...

Loved the blog hop! Gorgeous eye candy at every stop. As mentioned already, Petaloo hasn't updated their blog yet. So... I have "The difference between ____ triumph is a little umph. I'd hazard a guess that the missing words should be "try and", which would make the complete sentence read "The difference between try and triumph is a little umph".

Kim said...

Love all the eye candy I saw today. Petaloo's blog wasn't updated so I missed a word. The sentence I got was The difference between _______ triumph is a little umph. I have been a follower of almost all the blogs listed for a while. Those that I didn't follow, I do now.

Becky Dunham said...

First I want to tell you had no problems with any of the stops - Petaloo was up and running fine :)

Next, the sentence "The difference between try and triumph is a little umph".

Now that I have done that, I want to say that everyone of the projects I saw were breathtaking, jaw dropping, gorgeous! I mean I literally sat here with my mouth open! How do people come up with these gorgeous creations? I have not scrapped lately - been working on cards - but nothing I have ever created comes even close to what I saw today. I would follow all of these sites even if it wasn't required to win, just for the pure inspiration!

And speaking of winning, these prizes are unbelievable! I am crossing all my fingers and toes that I win - any one would make me over the moon happy :)
