My first swap ...

Yep, I've finally got involved in a swap having been curious for some time.
It's a recipe card swap with the lovely girls at Scrapboxx. Ayway, here's my efforts ...

Sorry it's blurry - the recipe theme is movie munchies and I went with drinks - Coffee Liqueur w/ vanilla & cinnamon cream ... doesn't that just sound DELICIOUS!!! I actually haven't tried it ... yet ... dont tell the girls (oops) but I know I've had something similar and it's yummy.

The stamp is a MM foam one done with Versamark and I printed the recipe title over the top. I used Walnut Ink around the edges too.

And I am soooo loving that "itty bitty bag" of prima flowers I got from Michelle (Scrapbook Divas) a while ago. I am finding them very handy because I'm not stuck with a heap of the same style/colour-range/size - they're all different. A few here ... a few there ... you get the idea I'm sure.

For anyone interested, I have a little challenge going for the month of June over at Scrapbook Divas - check out the forum - and I'll put all participants names in a hat and the lucky one drawn out will receive a little RAK. My challenge is simply to set yourself a goal for the number of LO's you want to complete in June and as an extra optional challenge do it just from stuff in your stash. My goal is 5 (you all know I'm a slow, procrastinator scrapper LOL) but I've already done 3 so I might need to review.

I am currently side tracked from LO's though having done the recipe swap (note to self, get them posted ASAP) and I've started a mini album for me about my 20's - I've got a cool Maya Road chipboard ring binder album from Divas and can do a double spread for each year 20-29 (I'm getting quite retrospective as my 30th approaches in December this year).

I am so loving the Divas site - it was the first scrapping site I got involved in and they embraced me with open arms. I have found confidence I didn't know existed when I comes to sharing LO's and all things scrapping. And by the way, they've just announced 2 new DT members whose work I have admired since I first got involved in the site - Jode and Rach. Congratulations (again) girls if you happen to read my uninspiring little blog here!!!

Anyway, thanks to anyone who happens to be reading this - I appreciate it. Bye for now ...

Hey there Helen!
I finally made it (well I made it the other day too..)
Thanks for the vote of condfidence.
Divas is a fantastic place to be. I really love it there and am glad you do to.
On another note, I think your DS and my SIL have the same name! How amazing is that for such an unusual name?

Hi Helen, great card swap, the flowers are gorgeous and the floral PP is lovely.

My DH would love that recipe. Take care and see you over at Divas!
