Karla's Wonderful Swap, My Pages




I joined Karla's Wonderful book Swap Nature's Blessings and am having such fun creating my pages.  I love flowers and birds so that is what I created!  This was such a fun swap and you can read all about it on Karla's blog:  http://karlascottage.typepad.com/karlascottage/2014/07/a-journal-of-natures-blessings-a-book-swap-for-you-to-join.html.  I love her swaps and this is the third one that I have joined.  Here are the pages that I created.

Here is my first page, who ever receives my pages can add a photo on this page

The second page they can write on and the third page I made a pocket and included a couple of tags

Here is the page with the tags removed

Here is the last page, I really enjoyed this swap, thanks Karla for hosting, I look forward to receiving it!

Altered Suitcase


I started a group with the Marie Antoinette Mail Art Group,  this was not a swap, but a group that we create our own Altered Suitcase and then shared photo's.  I started with a vintage suitcase, that was my Mother In Laws, she was going to throw it away last year and I told her I would love to have it.  The inside of the suitcase was in really bad shape so I took everything out and made a new backing for it and added drawer pulls to be able to hang things while it is open, I use it as a display for my many collectables.  I had such a great time doing this.  Thanks for visiting me today, have a wonderful week.  Hugs, Terri
