Fall swap and birthday goodness
Received in the mail yesterday the fall 4x4 pages from a swap hostessed by my friend, Beth from the atc_group on Yahoo. They were all gorgeous and will make such a pretty book all put together. Beth even made a title page from some of her digital artwork. I'm envious of Beth's ability to do such art. These pages are shown in the 2 photos above. I'll give the artist for each page left to right, top to bottom. In the first scan, Beth's title page is first and then her 4x4 page is next to it. Aren't they beautiful!?! Love the colors she used, the gold accents, and the leaf danglies! Next on the bottom left is the front of the page by Judy D. which is a lovely Halloween/fall combination. Beside that is Lottie's page, who is Beth's Mom. Again I love these colors and the ribbon and leaf trims. In the next photo the first one is the back side of Judy's 4x4 which I wanted to show because she had both sides decorated so prettily. On the right top is spooky page by Candy P. So totally cool! Next row on the left is another Halloween page done by Aiyanna W. with the raven that has such great details including stitching and black netting. Love this one, too! Last, but not least, is the funny doggie with googly eyes created by Denise B. This one makes me smile every time I look at it in addition to being pretty.
Shown here are the birthday surprises that Beth was so sweet to send me! There is a soldered pendant/necklace. The front is shown in the scan of all the items on the top and the back of it is below. Wanted to show that because it's pretty, too. I love this necklace! I told Beth she couldn't have given me a better present as I've been wanting one for a long time, but haven't gotten up the nerve to try soldering yet. Isn't it just so gawgeous! Did I mention I love the necklace? Also, she included some cute cat magnets. So sweet! These make me smile! And on top of these goodies, Beth sent one of her "oh, so cool" altered Halloween postcards! I'm lucky to have such a great art friend, aren't I?
