Crafting and a Swap

Hi all!  I just wanted to share some of the things I created and an atc swap I participated in.
I purchased this standing metal frame made by Prima a few months ago.  I wasn't particularly thrilled with the original color, so I painted it a vintage white and aqua.   I added some images from the Graphic 45 By the Sea collection, flowers, seam binding, sand, shells and a cute sea gull chipboard sticker from K and Co.   
I love vintage seed boxes and the reproductions, but vintage or not, they are expensive, so I decided I was going to make my own.  I painted a cute, wood box I found at Hobby Lobby, downloaded some vintage seed packet images from Etsy, added some chipboard alphas and a few rubon leftovers and voilà, a seed box! 

I received these lovely "True Blue Sweetheart" atc's from Donna, Sylvia and Michele.  Thanks to the lovely Kimberly for hosting yet another wonderful swap!

These are a few tags I created using some of Dina Wakley's rubbers stamps.

Imagination is a wonderful thing and I love how you've turned the ordinary into a beautiful work of art!

Hi Kelly, your work is always amazing. I love the seed box and was thinking of doing something like this after I did one for a friend.
By the sea is gorgeous and your tags are incredible.
You have been busy and everything turned out perfect. Great swap treasures.
Have a nice weekend.
