Lotsa Lotsa happening around here!

We have a little get together coming up next weekend and it's called SWIRL-A-PALOOZA!!!! OK, maybe it's not sooooo little. *wink*   There will be challenges, a game, tutorials and lots of fun.  Stay tuned to the blog for more details about the theme and the schedule.  Also, we will be making two announcements next Friday.  Really, really great stuff.  Hope you come back to learn more.  Oh, and we will be voting for the winners of January's SwirlyHues and posting the winners on the 13th.  It is not gonna be easy. 

But, today is all about the release of February's SwirlyHues Storyboard and Challenge.  This month's hostess is the divinely gorgeous Angelica.  Take a look at what she has chosen for this month's story.
