Artful Bag Challenge ATC Swap !

Hello friends, it's a beautiful August morning here in Northern Utah and A perfect day to share...

First, I would like to thank Anna From Frosted Petunias for hosting the most Fun & Wonderful ARTFUL BAG ATC SWAP!
I was lucky enough to get in this swap as Anna needed a couple more little I took the plunge.. my first ATC swap, and I surely hope to participate in more...

Anna was my very talented ATC partner, and talented she is...
I received this package in the mail Monday afternoon.. Look at the sweet little details on the package! LOVE IT!!!

What a sheer delight to my eyes when I pulled out a little package wrapped in beautiful foil papers with red scroll designs.. I wonder how Anna knew red was my favorite color?
I let out a screammmmm.... as i opened the wrapping to find this Wonderful little paper purse. I LOVE IT! I wonder how Anna knew the colors of my home?

And inside the lovely paper purse, was this Fabulous Artful Bag ATC ! I absolutely LOVE IT! The colors & design is rich and full of depth & detail.. I LOVE the carpet bag, and it fits me to a tee!

I LOVE the detail on the carpet bag, especially the pin with dangly beads... Thank You so much Anna :)

This was a very fun ATC swap and i hope to join more..
I wished I could show you the ATC I created just for Anna, but scatter brained me was so excited to package it up, and send it to Anna that I plum forgot to take pics... well, until i was in line at the Post office.. Da O !
No worries though.... You can visit Anna's blog Frosted petunias to see all of the Artful Bag Challenge ATC's from the swap!

Thanks all for stopping by, with the weekend fast approaching I'd like to wish you all a Splendid one.
I will be keeping myself out of trouble by hanging out at my grandson & niece's Birthday parties....Love to Party !!! LOL ;)
