Swaps, swaps...swapping...

Good morning y'all,

Don't you just love swapping? If you've never been bitten by the swap bug, watch out because it is mighty catching and so hard to stop. While we are working on the cigar box for #3, let me show you the one I received for #2 from lovely Francine:


The theme was a sewing box and I couldn't believe how well she captured this for me because I love to sew. I haven't in years - but this took me back - look at all the details. You can actually hear me screech on my UTube channel.

She personalized it so well - I just love every nook and cranny.

Look what I sent my partner:

I really enjoyed using these lovely papers I found at HL. Personalizing this for her was a scrap lift from my box I received...heehee....

I saw another person doing these compartments inside her box for her partner and decided to scrap lift that too...heehee....all in all, I thought it came out pretty cool.

Thanks for stopping by. Y'all have a great week!

Happy Crafting! :~)
