ATC's- Circles

My ATC group theme for the January swap was 'Circles'.

 I used Gelli plate backgrounds on Deli papers, cut out a Memory Box flower die which seemed just perfect. The flowers and dragonflies (Cheery Lunn die)
 are cut from waste napkins from a workshop using shimmery sprays. I added white gel pen circles and a jewel on each flower center.

Here are the trades I received
Left: Linda O
Center: Mary W and shimmery circles
Right by Carol- tin man

Left- Harriet
2nd from Lt-Diane S
2nd from Rt-Carol
Right- Mari S

Left- Marcy
Center: Joann used a stencil and shimmery paint and glittery shapes
Right- Dee De

Lt- collage- Noreen
Rt Cindy K using acrylic thru the embossing machine and glued it to cardstock.

 Barb I. from Florida sent up swaps- she was in the area, but we could not work out meeting up.  I traded ATC's for her.

Thanks for stopping by!

haven't seen that flower die in ages! nor have i seen ATC's. used to belong to a club. have a binder full of ATC's. probably should repurpose them by now LOL.

yeah, i've been keeping track of your dad's progress and keeping him in my prayers. glad surgery went well.

my friend opened a store of mostly kids stuff, with a few adult things thrown in like sweaters, T shirts, expensive shoes (Suisses) (which are the most comfortable shoes i've ever worn - tho very pricey). so, i'd guess you would say her store is a little bit of this and that.

have a great week.

hugs :)

Your ATC's look great and what a fun theme. I love that you used napkins that would have otherwise been thrown away.

So Awesome Shelly...I love re-using things and have often re-used coffee filters that were used for spraying Glimmer spray. After they have been used many times they look too pretty to toss out so I die cut them into beautiful flowers.
