Hi Everyone, I'm so excited to have made it to the week 3 challenge over at Swirlydoos. I am blown away by everyone's creativity. It's such a tough competition..crossing my fingers, legs, and toes..that I make it for the next round..LOL! But..if I don't, I've still learned so much from all my Swirly Sisters and forever grateful. 

Our challenge this week was to incorporate a foil technique in our project. I created a layout using this technique. 
Below are some pics of my layout and closeups. The pics just don't do this layout justice, plus not to mention my lighting sucked! hhaha

Title: Adore
This is a pic of hubby and me. I love this pic.. Hubby is so handsome! Awe.. Anyways..lets move on. LOL
I used papers from a previous Swirlydoos Kit, which included papers from the Bo Bunny Weekend Market line. I did lots of punching, distressing, and embossing. 

 Thank god for close-ups.. I made these two large flowers entirely out of foil..what the heck right??'s foil tape which i embossed then cut using my tattered florals die and finally inked with acrylic paint and alcohol ink. The leaves are also made using this same technique. 

Here's the LINK to the video technique created by Miranda Edney. 

 Omgosh..the hearts, I also created with this foil technique..loved it..loved it! 

Here's the background which is made of foil as well. And another heart. 

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
