A completed challenge and A wonderful Swap Package

If you are looking for the swap package contents - scroll down past my challenge entry :)

Starting out with some embellishments from a partial embellishment baggie from a swap years ago.

 and some papers, embellishments from my little box of odds and ends, scrap paper and one sheet of new - add some crystal lacquer and viola!  a layout I adore.  This is my final version for the challenges listed over at  Remember if you sign up, drop me an email at and I will approve your membership much quicker!

 Next up - my wonderful scrap package from my partner in the Red/White/Blue swap over on the Cricut messageboard.  Huge thank you!

First - I'm seeing stars - this adorable dish towel, complete with recipe, and a cookie cutter to use with it!

Next, some beautifully dimensional Fourth of July parade cards - I have at least one young man in mind for one of them!
 Next up, a wonderful patriotic gift basket.  The basket will go wonderfully in my camper this weekend!  Perfect size for right inside the front door to grab for our table items!  The basket came filled with a wonderful assortment of goodies!

Snap, Crackle, Pop - it is some beautiful, clear crackle paint!  I tried to get a photo of the detail.  This letter will go beautifully by my scrap table!

Next up was a Summer Mud-pie directive.  Wow, she did great for never having worked with these techniques before.  This adorable birdhouse has a new home where it fits perfectly with the decor!

 The next item is this cute basket!  I need to find out what cartridge she used here as it is super adorable and I can see lots of uses for this little guy!  Better yet - open it up and there were some wonderfully useful goodies inside!!!

 Yet another fabulous item is this great altered frame!  I have just the photo to go inside and it will be ordered this week!

Next, a taste of Oregon!  I can't wait to open this yummy sounding lemonade and give it a try!  Thank you so much to my partner!
Finally - check out this adorable insulated cup - can't wait to try it out with the lemonade!
