**The RR (Round Robin) Challenge at Swirlydoos Kit Club**

Hello all!

The RR (Round Robin) challenge is back this month! Yay!

Here is how it works,  the first person creates their layout based on the theme and twist and posts it on the due date. The next person on the team “lifts” or uses the first layout as a blue print to create their layout and so on. So each person “lifts” the person before them. There are four people to a team to take us through the month with each person getting a week to create their masterpiece.
This month we have 3 teams. More details on the Swirlydoos Forums HERE 

The topic this month is 'NEW BEGINNINGS'

Here's my layout for TEAM 3 WEEK 1




My new beginning is really for Holly (DD). She has had a torrid time the last few years suffering with Acute Tonsillitis bringing on her asthma as well, which has led to a lot of time off school and hospital visits and generally being really ill a lot. In December as many of you know, she finally had her tonsils out, which was equally traumatic! So now we are looking forward to a new start this year with NO tonsillitis! This photo is of Holly in hospital on the evening she had her tonsils out after two trips into the theatre! She looks remarkable bright, bless her!

I used a lot of the Swirlydoos December kit on this layout. The papers, the larger blue flowers and the beaded blue flower. I used mixed media, TH Distress Grit Paste stencilling, pink acrylic paint, pink Art Sugar on the hearts, gesso on the chippie, and stamping with Black Soot distress Ink in the background. There is metal on the beaded blue flower. Lots of flowers, chipboard and bling with the sequins and crystals for a Swirly style LO!
