ATC Swap

Kimberly Laws of ArtJoyStuff is creating 52 ATCs this year - one each week - and swapping with 52 other crafters.  You can read about it here.  Her work is amazing - to prove that point, she was just selected for the first-ever Gilded Life Design Team!  I was lucky enough to swap for her ATC #30.  I had been tempted all year, but this little beauty was just calling my name.
Kimberly sent along an extra spray of those tiny turquoise flowers - just my color! 

It took me a couple of weeks to come up with something I thought was worthy, but after a couple of false starts I found an old necklace bit that I had been saving for something special and things picked up from there. 
At an estate sale a few weeks ago I found a bit of unusual pique trim that I loved, so I included a piece for Kimberly to use in one of her creations.
Thank you, Kimberly, for a wonderful swapportunity!
