Mini book and Mad for Colours Swap.

As you will all know by now I've been particiapting in LaWendula's monthly paper swaps. This month I was lucky enough to be paired up to swap with our host! Here's what I've sent to her...

The stenciled words say...
Life
evolution
breathe in
feel
embrace the miricle
live

(Oh no! I spelt miracle wrong and  I've just noticed now...what a bummer)

The theme was mad for colours so I put together so hand coloured papers togther with nature themed magazine pages. The binding down one side means my partner can cut the page away to use it.


Below are some other colourful paper's I put in with her book...


I particiapted in last months mini book swap and this is the fabulous book I got from my partner Amelia Critchlow. I love the handmade recyled-ness!

Below are a few of my favorite pages..


The card in the pocket says the stamped word 'Love.'

Every time I look at your pieces I'm inspired to do something with the mass of ephemera and papers that I've pack-ratted away all these years. One of these days ... action!

By the way: I apologize for not sending an email, but you have my permission to use that link to "Reinventing the Wheel".
