Last night I went to spend some scrapping time with Maraline and was able to work on a few swaps I was participating in over at Paper Dolls Trading.

The first is an ATC using washi tape.  I started by covering my card with two different patterns of washi tape.  Next I stamped a doll, a bell and a saying and colored them. I also added some glitter and lace trim.

Here are the results!

My second project is my very first pocket letter.  The theme of the swap is Christmas.  I decided to use one of my decade dolls and then I gathered up some Christmas papers and embellishments.

with a few close-ups!


I have the same partner for both swaps so my package went postal today.  

Hopefully she will enjoy them!

I hope you also enjoyed viewing my latest 
Julie Nutting creations!

I am in a Christmas Fairy swap over at 
Paper Doll Trading Facebook group.  

I had fun working on this...
I used my first armoire tag!  


And I used unusual materials (for the Thrifty Tursday challenge on Addicted 2 Paper Dolls Facebook group) - her skirt is this great mesh that I found at Dollar Tree and her wings are made from pointysettia leaves - also from Dollar Tree!

rhinestones on her shoes and 
as drawer pulls on the armoire!

some Bo-Bunny cardstock stickers 
(the hat and the banner)

  and some old Hippopotamus stickers 
(the presents and the stocking) 

and a K&Company tree cut from a border.

I hope that you have enjoyed seeing this fun creation and that my swap partner is going to love her too!  I am having a hard time thinking of parting with her but she goes postal in the morning!

I was blessed to join my friend Maraline for another Friday night of dinner and scrapping.  I struggled with my mojo and was only able to complete one layout.  But, it is the answer to my previous post - so why was Robin crying...

I used Scrapbook Challenges 
Flashback Friday Sketch #232 - 

and my layout - 

The reason for Robin's tears was that during the crop as a surprise she was gifted with a wonderful cart of food and a beautiful mixed media canvas signed by everyone.

 and now few close-ups-

I am struggling with packing for my move and will be needing to get my scrapbooking area thoroughly cleaned up very soon so my posts may be even less than they have been lately but please do keep watch as I love hearing what you think of my creations!

Hope you are having an awesome weekend and a blessed restful Sunday!

Last night I had another girls scrapping night with my friend Maraline and I was able to complete 2 more layouts using photos from my last trip to Ohio for the "Bee Happy Bee Scrappy" crop with Robin's Scrap Nest.

My first layout uses Make It Monday sketch #49 
from The Memory Nest.  

and my layout - 
These photos were from a tag class with
 Shannon Commerford Wroblewski. 

and a close-up-

and my other layout uses 
Stuck?!Sketches November 1 sketch-

and my layout-

and close-ups-
Robin always makes the most amazing name badges
 for her crops!  So much detail!

Don't you love this bee?  I used them on my ATC cards and had so many left over that I have been using them on a lot of the layouts from this crop!

I hope you have enjoyed a bit more from my trip.  There will soon be a page that will come before this last one chronologically that will show you why Robin was crying.

Have an awesome weekend!
