1 swap down one to go :)

Hiphip hooray, a complete set of one of my swaps is done (shown above >"<) I used the same sketch that I used the other day which made things a little easier. However, deciding on paper and colors, that took more time than I would have liked. So I settled on basic grey paper, the LilyKate line. What I love about this sketch when I use it is how little paper I use. The bottom layer of ds is 4in x 3 in, so that only takes 1/2 sheet of a 12 x12 piece of paper. Then the second layer is 2 1/2 in x 3in, so that uses less than a 1/2 sheet of 12 x12. I know this might sound crazy, but I hoard paper its really becoming OCD like. So sometimes I cannot cut into a piece of paper because I think I need to save it for when I might really need it (I know I have issues LOL). So when I use this sketch I still have a 1/2 sheet of paper left exactly 6in x 12in, enough to spare for when I really need it LOL. I know a friend just like me, not to name names but, Chris >"< (she is awesome go check out her blog too)
The images are by papertreyink, because its a papertrey swap :) and the ribbon I am pretty sure is May Arts that I bought a few years ago.
