I have a few different bits & bobs to show this week :) Firstly, I have to mention my sister-in-law to be's new blog! Its for all things crochet-so check her out & follow along with the crafting fun there http://reerawcrafts.blogspot.com/
I posted on my blog a while ago the first ATCs I made for a swap-well I got my swap ATCs back-
http://littlesnippetsblog.blogspot.com/ I love the kisses on here and the heart trim! You guys have to check out Geraldines etsy shop for AMAZING embroidered embellishments-http://www.etsy.com/shop/littlesnippets. And the third card is by Niamh http://niamhsnookofinspiration.blogspot.com/ And this card has just a gorgeous vintage feel to it-thanks so much ladies, this was a great first ATC swap for me & I'm looking forward to doing more!!
Also I took part in the paper and goody swap over on the scrapbeach for the month of February as hosted by the lovely Mely-and my partner was Leah over in Texas. I made up a birdsong kit for her again with Lily O'Brien chocs-yummy!!!
I had to show some other goodies I got off other friends of mine-
http://craftingtostaysane.blogspot.com/! I had never seen any of these in the "real life" so its so cool to see them & I want a big shot more than ever now :)
http://www.facebook.com/JAnnBdesigns-I had seen her using this gorgeous butterfly on her youtube http://www.youtube.com/user/JAnnBDesigns during Marions 31 day challenge and she let me know that she had 2 so she sent me her extra one & I love it so much Judy, you were so generous to send it to me & not only that but she also sent me gorgeous laces in 2 of my fave colours cream & teal! Also you can see in the picture some stamped images and little paper frames & stickers.
I am so lucky to know all of these lovely ladies & am just loving the whole scrapbooking experience!
This year I am determined to get braver with my embellishing etc. and I got amazing trims & laces in an art shop the last day-check these out!!!!!! There are embroidered flowers, laces, crochet laces, rik raks......
