Welcome to our SwirlyHues kick-off party!!!!
We are off-the-hook excited this morning to bring to you our newest Swirlydoos creation, SwirlyHues!!!! 
We love all of the color challenges out there and wanted to create one of our own with a Swirlydoos twist!  We are going to mix it up a bit so fasten your seatbelts!  Each month the hosting Swirlydoos Designer will decide if you get to work with 3 colors or, shades of one and we go monochromatic!  We have some of the best tutorials on the planet and decided that to truly make this a Swirlydoos event you will need to choose one of our tutorials and use that on your page.  Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezie!
For our inaugural challenge we have a moooost have prize for you!!!!!!  Prize info is at the bottom of the post. J
Here is our first challenge storyboard!

The Rules:
1)      Must stick to the hues provided.  You may add black or white, but it can NOT be more than 5% of your total page and can NOT be a main element.
2)      You must use the sketch provided.
3)      Now for the Swirly-fying element – you MUST use one of our tutorials on your page.  Here is a LINK to our tutorials.  You can choose anything your beautiful, creative heart desires.
4)      Create a post on your blog for your SwirlyHues entry.
5)      Upload your gorgeous creation to the SwirlyHues album in our gallery no later than midnight eastern time on October 10th.  Click HERE to get there.  You will need to register to upload photos.  It's free!

6)      2 winners will be chosen; 1st and 2nd place.  Each winner will receive one of our highly coveted blog badges (see the right-side bar).  Winners will be posted to the Swirlydoos blog on the 13th of the month (unless otherwise noted), as well as our Facebook page.  Check back here to see your name and then contact me, LisaV, at  I will make sure you get your blog badge and then I’ll add you to our blog for the month! Superstahhhhhh *strike a pose*
7)      The next challenge will be uploaded to our blog on October 10th!
