My Progressive swap Album Completed

It has finally arrived and I am proud to show you all.  I was overwhelmed by the talent and creativity of these ladies and what they put into my album.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!  I created a video to show it off.  I do want to I will be having a conversation with my son this evening on returning things that get borrowed...but, this is my only day off from work where I felt I could create a video with people being around and interrupting me.  (Basically, what I am trying to say is...the camera is a bit shaky and you may get views of my messy work area or computer keyboard more than I had intended).

Just as a refresher, this is what I sent off on it's merry way and finally made it home to me:

And here is what I received back:

Progressive Swap Round 6

Here is the last mini album in the progressive swap.  It has been a lot of fun!  I received my album in the mail already and will be sharing that with you all tomorrow.  Needless to say, I was pleasantly surprised and overwhelmed how great my album turned out and want to thank all the participants in our group.  It was absolutely lovely.

Today, I want to share Jennifer's album.  Jennifer's album was fun and funky with her Bohemian Graphic 45 papers.  I loved the rich and vibrant papers she choose for us to work with.
I decided to let the papers say it all with the pages I created,  I did add some paper flowers from Graphic 45 though, along with some gems in the background.

On this album I opted for a corner piece where Jennifer can place a photo or she can use it for tags.

I added some Auhentique papers on this flap because I thought the whimsy of the verse worked.

the back page has another corner anchor and a flap for more tags.
It was a joy to get to participate with this great group of ladies and I look forward to sharing the final results of my own album tomorrow.  Please come back!
