I got my craft on this weekend!

I have not had many opportunities to craft in the past couple of months and it was so great this weekend to have that opportunity! A few months ago I joined a swap with some amazing artists and I am very late getting mine done. But I did!

The swap is with Christine Penaflor, Jenny Doh, Kim Caldwell, Katie Watson and Cheryl Waters. The task was to create a heart with one letter from the word CREATE. So Christine die cut hearts and letters for all of us and we each chose our color palette and then let the creating begin! The theme was Vintage Shabby Chic.

I am very happy with the way mine came out. I might still add a few more vintage pieces to them but here are some sneak peeks of what I came up with. Will post the finished projects when we get them all swapped.

Your hearts turned out beautiful works of art. Everyone will be lucky (ooops! no pun intended!) when they get an Elena heart.
