Paper Doll Swaps

A few of us got together for a one on one paper dress swap. Rachael from the Rose Room, Liz from Lizzie's and Catie from Catiean & Co.

Here is the lovely wrapped parcel from Rachael. She also included a handcrafted fan card and the dress is absolutely beautiful, crafted with lace and fancy fabric, it is so lovely. Thank you Rachael
Next is the lovely wrapped package from Liz. She also made me a lovely decorated clothes pin and the dress is so beautiful. Notice the smocking on the dress. Thank you Liz.
Here are the dresses I sent to Rachael and Liz

The backs were covered with copies of an old catalogue and the card I enclosed the dress in. These are the two dresses I received from Gwen over at Big Daddy Seashell for The Paper Dress Swap hosted by Heather over at Jeweled Elegance Thank you Gwen
These are the two dresses I sent to her
I must say these little dresses can become addictive as they are so much fun to make. Keep tuned for more to come.

I am so glad you liked your `wee dress' I actually had to SNEAK the smocked bodice from Rachael's carefully guarded box of treasures, and horrors when she saw me cutting it up -Hugs Liz

Those dresses are all so pretty. Do you know I have been noticing them in all the stores as Christmas ornaments? Someone is reading blogs.
