The most amazing swap ever!

Toad & Magic

One of my dt teamies set up a book swap in a Facebook groups she runs.  About 10 of us signed up and then a few more got added over time.  We each picked a theme, mine was books which I’ll do a post about.  Then everyone made a 5×5 page for each person’s theme.

My awesome friend Mandy choose Family as her theme.  This was the perfect excuse to pull out some, okay lots, of PaperArtsy stamps.  I had thought of an old family album filled with pictures.  I stamped the images with, what else?, Vintage Photo distress ink! lol

I wrote faux family names on the back and gave them relational titles like Uncle so and so and Nanny with her sisters just for a bit of fun.

I’ve always wanted to do one of those penny spinners…there’s a quote under there too.  I’d tell you what it was if I could find the stamp…

The background was done with decoart acrylics in browns, weathered wood medium, and buttermilk.

Lisa over at That Craft Place cut my pages out greyboard.  I bought pretty much everything used on here there as well.

I’d like to enter the following challenges:
