Shoe box swaps rock!!!

Hello there! It is another soggy Monday here!  It has been raining for days!  Everything is all splooshy and wet! Including our chickens who absolutely refuse to stay inside their chicken condo where it is all warm and dry and cozy. Silly birds!  Anyhow, I have the neatest post to share with you today!  As I  have mentioned before I get together once a month with a fantabulous group of stamping buddies.  We always do a fun swap,  chit chat about stamping business , have a demo and all do a make n' take project.  Plus there is always enough yummy food to make you leave 12 pounds heavier than when you got there!  When I say yummy food I am seriously serious!  This is the cooking-est bunch of folks I know!  Good, good, good stuff!!

Well our August meeting is one of my very favorites of the year!   This is when we do our Shoe box Swap.  Everyone shows up with a project to share and enough  kits for everyone to make that project.  We shuffle from table to table and make them all (taking breaks of course for food!).  Every single project this month was awesome!  Want to see?!

Awesome spritzer holder box by Kaye.

Oh so cute re-inker box by Catherine.

Beautiful card by Melanie. She had a stamped image in the center originally,  but there was a flower that I had made a couple days before at home sitting on my desk just waiting for a project to live on and this one was perfect for it!!

Oh soooooo cool screen card by Jo!

Fun notepad and pen dvd holder by Connie!  

Matching pocket on the inside and pen!

Adorable little gift bags by Kavi!

Gorgeous tag by Carolyn!

Love, love, love!!!

Beautiful card by Teri!

So very pretty!

Cubed paper box by Jane!  

Fun project too!

Holds this beautiful rainbow pad of paper!

Finally this was my project.  It is a holiday mini album.  I received an album at Convention using this design made by Linda Pittman. (Thank you Linda!) I played with it until I figured out how to replicate it and then dressed it up for the holidays!

This would be such a happy little album filled with holiday photos!

Ok, well I am off to play in my stamp room!  Since it is damp and cool and soggy out it seems like the very best place to spend the rest of my day!  Hope yours is a great one!
