Lot's of inking, glimmermist, a stamped image, beads, laces and dry embossing. It felt pretty good using some of the older things from my stash like the MM gold photo turns which are ruddy ancient!
...the tags I received back. I'm so sorry I cannot remember who made which except that the centre tag was made by Paula Lynne and the tag with lovely beaded fringe was created by Lynne Samkin
While I like them all this one is probably my favourite....check out all the 'holes'. Love that!
During 2010 I was in quite a few swaps, more swaps at one time than I've ever done before; here with Shar and the girls at Crafting PassioNZ and my friends from waay back at the Crop Room based in the USA. It is where I first learnt what Scrapbooking was, whoa....going back to 2001! Love those ladies!

Probably my favourite. Can I say it looks whimsy? I love the layering and the use of the muslin and string. I added a prima flower...couldn't help myself! :D
Another page that arrived stitched together. The ribbon was creased and I KNOW a quick swipe with the iron would've fixed it but I was too lazy to get it out, find a plug in another room and flick a switch. I also could of gently rubbed it over a hot light bulb but I don't have a desk light and using the ceiling light was bordering on riccidoodlelious! So I tipped a jar of coordinating ribbons onto the table and went thru it, nope nothing. I grabbed an already made bow - no good! Some lace - no good! Turned to another draw and dumped the fibres on the floor - no good! Would a chipboard bow work? Nope!! Just goes to show, you don't mess around with a kit by a-la-Rachel and Trina. Lol. Yup, I plugged in the iron! Loved the number 6 on the wee card, my birthday!
I'll be sharing more with you over the next few weeks from some swaps I was in last year.
