I have had the pleasure of doing two swaps this month.  The first one is for Life on the Scrap Beach and the theme is Vintage Tag.  You know me I love anything vintage so I had to do this one.  The host of this swap is Juliana Montoya.  She loves vintage also. I created the tag out of chip board cover it with designer paper.  Distressed  the edges with Tim Holtz Distress ink in vintage photo.  Used glimmer mist from Tattered Angels in Bronze.  The vintage photo I got from Marie's freebies.  She has a wonderful blog with so many beautiful pictures.   I printed it out on Staples Matt photo paper and then I distress the edges of it with my Making Memories distressing tool and then distressed the edges again with the vintage photo distress ink.   Glimmer misted the lace with Moonlight and Cranberry Zing.  Then place the bronze lace on top.   The flower is from Recollections,  Made a stick pin. Used Fiskers stamps for the Dream and Love pieces.  I stamped them also in Vintage photo distress ink.

 The second swap is on a Lil Scrap of  Heaven.     Hosted by Misty Busby..   It is a Springtime Trim Swap      It is to have 3 different laces and 3 different trims, plus two flowers.  One being handmade.   I made both of mine .  The white and  peach is made from a flower from Stampin up and the peach center is  grosgrain ribbon gathered and layered then place on white flower with a half back peal in the center.   The second flower is made out of organza.  It is called a Lolly Pop flower.  I put it on a green skeleton leaf and feather and a string of flat pearls. I made the stick pin also.   I love doing these and when I get mine from the others that participated I will put them on here also.  

Thanks for stopping by....  Please feel free to leave a comment for I do read them....   Also please visit my Esty store.
