Ahoy Mates! Sharing some swap items!

Happy Fourth of July!  We don't have much planned for today; most of our fun starts this evening with a potluck, Bible study, games, and fireworks at church.  I want to try a new crock pot chicken recipe, so I better make this post short and sweet!  Gotta get that thing started!  Lol!

Here are a couple of items I made for a swap for my fave site, It's a Scrapbooking Swap Thing.  They are trying to generate more interest, so you should "sail" over and take a look.  I say "sail" over because the swap items I am sharing have a nautical theme.

Here's the photo mat I made.  And a close-up of one corner shows a little banner embellishment.

The patterned papers are from Creative Imaginations' Nautical Line.  Have a peek at them here.

I signed up for two groups in this swap; here's my tag for group two.

And a close-up!  I pulled out my Stampin' Up! "By Sea" stamp set for this one.  That's one more thing I like about these swaps--I'll use more of my stuff and embellish my items more for them than if I'm just scrappin' and making one item.  If I make 8 or so items, it seems more worth it to "go overboard," lol!

Anyway, check out that swap site if you are interested; I love sharing my work with others and getting theirs in return!  They put up new swaps all the time!

See you soon!  Have a safe and happy 4th of July!
