Swap Challenge

I have been playing along, doing some scrap challenges, with a bunch of talented ladies who have been challenging each other, just for fun (and to get some scrapping done!) The challenge this time around was an embellishment swap. Names were drawn and we were to send that person some embellies from our own stash and they were to create a LO with it. I recieved mine from Keri. Here are the goodies she sent me:

I love all these items (especially the little file folders-great for hidden journaling). Though I like pink, I do not always go for it, because most of my scrapping is about my son Bryant. I worked it out though, 'cause I have been wanting to scrap this picture of Bryant & Rhianna from two Summers ago. Rhianna is Steve's cousins daughter. So Bryant and Rhianna are second cousins. This picture was taken while we were on vacation in Florida and it was actually the first time they had met. You would never know it though. Seemed like they had always known each other:

I used a little of everything that Keri sent and I really loved the result. I can not wait to see what Melinda did with the items that I sent her!

I love it!!! I'm so glad you were able to use everything. I began to read the post, I thought CRAP.. I didn't even think of that.. guess I pulled a Kristi on Debbie, on you! Hope you understand what I just said! lol....
I've made cards out of the little file folders before, but thats it and I have a ton! I'm glad I got to see how someone else used them.
