Winter Whites...

Here is a peek at my pages I made for a swap hosted by Robin. We were to use cremes,
whites, ivorys, beiges, or soft pastels. I found the image at the Vintage Moth, don't you the just love the sweet couple walking in the snow!

I can't wait to get the finished book! I will share it with you when it arrives.

Fan! Tastic!...

Awhile back I participated in the Rococo
Fan Swap hosted by Sonia . My partner was
Debi, we were a good match, we both
love pink! She made the most
gorgeous fan!

She coverd the blades with beautiful
roses cut from wallpaper.
I love all the pretty details in it.

The delicate glitter is just beautiful.
Thank you so much Debi!
This is the fan I sent her. I hear she
was tickled pink!

Sweet and Sinister Swap

My partner for this swap, hosted by Kari
at her Year of Color Blog, was Hope. She had
everything wrapped in vintage sheet music
and black netting!

She sent a very awesome collage package with a
vintage black frame and lots of goodies.

I love the letter brads spelling out

She made this beautiful Halloween banner.
I had to lay it in a circle to show the
details in it.

And last she made this wonderful crepe
paper ruffles!
Thank you Hope! You were a great
partner and I love it all!
Please stop over and see Hope
she was a wonderful blog and some
great etsy shops!
