I've just had the best time being involved in a layout swap over the past month or so. Kim organised the swap for the five of us (incl Helen, Mardi and Janelle). You can read about it on her blog and she's organising another layout swap (or several!) that's open to anyone wanting to join in! It was so much fun.
Here's how my layout started out. Just a background with 2 strips of pp... I posted it off to Janelle and she added a photo mat, my photos and some embellishments...Janelle sent my layout to Kim who added some more touches to the photo mat...Kim sent my layout to Mardi who added the title and some more strips of pp. Mardi sent my layout to Helen who finished it off with some crazy stitching, buttons and journalling.And now it's home! Oh how I love my layout made with love by my precious friends! Kim has the progressive shots of her layout on her blog and some more info about joining in the swap. I encourage you to join in! Check out Kim's background. It's an artwork in itself!
