Swap Projects..

I participated in Valentine's Day Swap over at My Chihuahua Bites This is the first time I've done a swap like this. My partner liked scrapbooking, cool picture frames and I noticed on her blog she was like me and adamant about sending out Thank You cards.

I found a very cute frame at Wal-Mart and thought it needed a little something extra so this is the before:

and this is the after:

I added several SU ribbons and some of the Buttons from the Button Bouquet.

Next I made a Star Album for her, I added some embellishments inside and then she can just add the photos and it's ready to go.

I choose the Green Tea DSP , it's retired but I loved this paper and I think it came out really well.

Here is a look at the inside pages from the top, when you have this open and tied it looks like a star.

I alo sent some yummy Godiva Truffles a cool refrigerator magnet from VA and I made a set of 4 Thank You cards for her to have on hand. You never know when you'll need a Thank You card.

I used the retired DS paper Banbury, Hat Pins from the Pretties Kit, Bashful Blue Stitched Ribbon and the Silver Hodgepodge Hardware. The Thank You is from the set "Short & Sweet". The small white flowers on the Pins are punched from the Trio Flower punch.

I packaged them in a Clear Box with envelopes and added some Bashful Blue Grosgrain to the outside.. Looks very pretty!! I almost didn't want to part with these.

I hope everyone had a nice Valentine's day with your loved ones. My husband and I are celebrating today with a nice dinner. I had my first gastric band fill on Friday so I've been on a liquid diet for 2 days so that put a crimp in our dinner plans. But I ready to eat today!!

He got me a very nice Pedicure from the Aveda salon, I went yesterday and indulged.. It was heaven, if you have an Aveda salon anywhere near you it's worth it their products are awesome.. Hair, body or face!

I'll try not to stay away for so long.. This week was crazy!
