Swap fun.

I was involved in a few swaps during 2010 with the ladies at Crafting PassioNZ. These were for a tag swap that had to include a vintage lady. These gorgeous pink women are silk prints from Peggy who trades as kalikokottage on TradeMe. I had to ween myself from her silk prints but I still keep an eye out for her goodie bags. They truly are goodie!

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!

Catch U L8r!

these are stunning! I so want to work on getting better at the shabby chic/ vintage look! Something to work towards during 2011!
