Christmas 2014 Altered Paper Bag Swap

Welcome Back!

In my previous post Christmas Gathering with the Girls , I mentioned I would share our Christmas Altered Paper Bag Swap.

Here are our pages bound into a book
 See how all the wonderful tidbits and snippets of lace, ribbon and other embellishments hang off of the individual pages to enhance the book!

me and my sisters.  

My back page

Altered paper bags, matchboxes, tins, etc. never cease to amaze me how they can be transformed and created into amazing artwork!

Thank you Gail, Nora, Beth and Marj for joining this swap!
I LOVE our Keepsake book!
