Tag Book and Box Swap

Jean at Lilac Lane Livery hostessed a tag book swap.  We had to make a pretty box and place inside a tag book.  My partner was the very talented ValeryAnn of It's an Alien Life.  ValeryAnn cracked her wrist during a fall, and I was amazed and pleased that she still held up her end of the deal and came through with creating a book and box despite this.  Many thanks and kudos to you, dear swap partner! She did a wonderful job creating a box and book in pinks and roses and with plenty of tea prints.  I just love it.





Didn't she do a fabulous job?  She included everything I like and enjoy.  Thank you SO much, ValeryAnn!  Below are pictures of what I sent to her.  Jean was very sweet to help me out in showing me what a tag book was.  I sort of guessed on putting it together.  I had bits and pieces of vintage things that I included to give the box and tags interest and texture including buttons, labels, feathers, stamps, lace, etc.  Enjoy!









Thank you also, Jean, for hostessing this fun swap!

So glsd you liked your swap. Your photos have come out so much better than mine. I have mine from you at the side of my desk and keep looking at it. There is something different ot see each time. Loved having you as a partner and maybe we will get to play again together soon. hugs ValeryAnne. (aka Mrs A. )

I had fun with this swap too, although I wasn't really sure what I was doing.
