Swaps, Swaps and More Swaps!!

I was part of Sherry Bamsey's Good Ole' Summer Time Tag Swap and I received my tags today. There was 15 people and we all had to make 15 identical tags, mail them to Sherry, and then she sorted them out, gave everyone one of each of the 15 tags and then mailed them to us. Sherry did the nicest job with packaging the tags. She had them all wrapped up nice with a ribbon and some pretty flowers. Thanks Sherry, you did a wonderful job hosting the swap and you put a lot of work into it!

Here are the the tags that the group made Starting at the top: Popsicles by Sherry, Road Trip by Kim, Cherished Summer Memories by Michelle, Catchin' Fireflies by Me, Summertime by Sue, Summer Memories by Colleen.

She Loved the Sea by Suzanne, Friends by Kim, Summer by Heidi, Sun by Cheryl, Picnic by Wanda, Summer by Jennifer

Life's a Beach by Rowan Willow, Sherry made this tag and bag of goodies up for us as a Thank you for participating (she's just to darn sweet!), Apple Tree by Sherry and last but not least Celebrate Summer by Jo (there are 2 charms around the ice tea jar. One is a sun and the other is a tea bag, to cute!)

This was a fun swap! Thanks so much to everyone for making such great tags and to Sherry for hosting!

I've got my Alice in Wonderland Swap Package ready to go and on the day it is suppose to be mailed out. There's a first!! This was the first swap I did through Swap-bot and it was hosted by the wonderful Genevieve of Bella-Enchanted.
If you are Breanne don't look at these pictures.

This is the backing of each frame

This is my completed shadowbox. I think I should have made the pictures smaller so you could see more of the background, but for my first shadowbox I don't think it turned out to bad at all. If you want to see what I started with the pictures are below on a posting I did a few days ago.

I also made a set of 4 cards to send to Breanne. There are 2 Mad Hatter cards, an Alice looking at the Cheshire Cat and a big Alice.

Now I need to go finish up 3 other swaps and get them in the mail by tomorrow. I'm beginning to get swapped out and my poor house sure looks like it too!! I don't have any more due though until the end of August.
