Swap Items...

We have two swaps for the retreat this time and thankfully I am done with mine. 8 pages wasn't too bad. I took a 12 x 12 sketch and shrunk it but the 18 cards took me a while. I was able to double a 9 card sheetload and whip them out faster than if I had just picked some random sketch....eyelets and all! I can't even tell you when was the last time I used an eyelet but I have a ton of them and I'm going to use them....slowly but surely. So here are my swap items:

I ordered SU paper in an effort to start using my stash of cardstock. Well, I didn't use very much but I used some which is better than none at all!

Leo #15 and a week in the life...

LEO #15 was Heritage - I chose this photo because I've been dying to use this paper for all the years I've had it and of course when it came down to it I had no embellishments but hopefully I can find something. I thought about taking some colored hot glue that my friend Michelle gave me and pressing into it an image of some sort but that was too much to ponder last night. I spent 30 minutes on the phone with my grandmother trying to determine just who these people are....they are either my great grandfather's three older siblings or his grandparents and a her sister? Which would make two of great-great-great grandparents? Who knows. It's old that's all I know.

I've been doing Ali Edwards Week in the Life this week. Strange process for me as I've never been one to document the regular moments much as I'd like to do so. I keep waiting for someone to tell me I can't take pictures in their establishment.
