Swap with Robyn

Hey Friends,

I received my first goodies from a Swap I did with Robyn Cox.  We are members of Shoppers Without Borders at Your Paper Pantry.  Click on the badge on my sidebar if you are interested in this fun group.  I decided to open the package, do a video of what was inside and then create something using those items...   Robyn sent me some very nice items so check out the video to see them all and as usual, I had cat help while videoing the goodies.....And it's always William...that Video-Feline!!
She sent me this beautiful light yellow, sparkly lace.










Also, there was this beautiful teal and yellow bling by Basic Grey called Opaline.  I love Basic Grey...their one of my favorite companies...  How did she know that??
















 
Paper is from K & Company Basic K 
Top Note Shape cut from SCAL on the Cricut
Swirly Scallop shape is from the Storybook Cartridge
Sentiment is TPC Studio Greetings Clear Stamp
Ink is Distress Ink Broken China
Camera - Canon 5D
Flash - 580EXII


Check out the video of the Swap items posted above...


I was supposed to take  Copic class last night...drove for 1.5 hours just to find out that they had been trying
to call me all day to tell me it was canceled.  But all was not wasted, they gave me a discount at the store so I bought 5 Copic markers, 4 bottles of Stickles and some embellishments...  Had fun any way...

Have a good day and thanks for stopping by my blog!!!

I just watched your video on the side bar - wow, such super finds. I have never been to a thrift store before (and I'm really embarassed to say it), but I never thought they would have such awesome things. I will definately go now :) Thank you for inspiration!
