Woo hoo! I'm doing the happy dance right now - they're done! I finished the rest of my 8 x 8 scrapbook swaps tonight! YAY! And six days early, to boot! My order arrived today with the paper I needed to finish my Halloween pages that I shared with you over the weekend, and along with it was the paper for my final swap, which I'm sharing with you tonight. This weekend I designed the layout for my Thanksgiving swap pages and made my six swaps. It was kinda fun - my DH and I went over to his dad's house and as we sat by the pool on Monday afternoon, I stamped and assembled my pages. All I needed was the Autumn Spice specialty paper I had ordered from the Holiday Mini to finish the left panel, so after finishing up the two Halloween swaps tonight, I finished up the Thanksgiving swaps. I really like how this one turned out. Now I can package up my swaps and get them mailed out in the next day or two, ahead of the September 15 postmark deadline. Lookie:
Stamp Sets: Autumn Splendor, Woodgrain, Thankful For
Card Stock: More Mustard, Early Espresso, Old Olive, Cajun Craze
Inks: Early Espresso, VersaMark
Accessories: Spritzer Tool, Gold Embossing Powder, Scallop Border Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals
Thanks so much for visiting my blog today. I'll have something new to share with a post that I have scheduled to publish on Monday morning as I've got a busy weekend coming up. Last spring I won an observing session for two with the Mount Wilson Observatory Association, and I chose this weekend to redeem my prize. My DH and I are heading up the mountain this weekend for some observing time on their 60-inch telescope. I'm looking forward to it - several years ago we were invited to do the same with the 60-inch at Mount Palomar, and it was a great evening. Until next time...
