Some recent ATCs

I have been a member of my ATC group for almost two years. Time flies when you are having fun ... Anyway here are some recent cards. I loved the Travel theme. There are so many places I would love to visit I thought this would be a great series to  make of just places I wanted to go. For the swap I chose Rome. This ATC folds open, looking like a passport on the outside. 

This one is from a "Letters and Numbers" swap. The topic was my suggestion but it took me a while to come up with an idea. I kind of like how it turned out. 

Itty Bitty Valentine Book

I joined an Itty Bitty Book swap this year and just adore the finished project. I think I am definitely hooked. The pages are ATC sized with about a 1/4" extra on the left side to accommodate the binding. So much fun to make. There are about 24 pages from 24 very talented ladies. Each page is so creative I kept saying to myself, I wish I thought of that. I don't have their permission to post their pages so I'll just show you mine. This first picture is of course, the cover. I love the Vintage Valentine on the front. The next picture is the front of my page. And the last picture is the back of the page or the signature.  cannot wait to do more of these. I hope you like it.

What a dog !

I haven't gotten around to photographing my Barbie dolls yet, summer's arrival has taken me outdoors a lot. Planting flowers, sunning by the pool and grilling dinner, which sure keeps the kitchen clean, not to mention cooler. So, a bit ago I found this picture of Bert the Bassett that my daughter took of him. She has this dog wrapped around her finger and she can dress him up in anything. This is one good natured dog. Anyway, I couldn't help but play with the picture a little bit a and thought I'd share it. I am taking my sweet time learning Photoshop, that's my excuse anyway. It's just not easy for me.
