Paper Swap

I got a surprise paper swap the other day, from my pen pal Deborah in the USA. I had forgotten we had mentioned it in our letters until it arrived in my mail box!


Some lovely craft papers and cards for me to be creative with. I must collect some of mine together for her now, I’m going to enjoy that! ๐Ÿ™‚

This is mine, it included some beautiful vintage documents and hand printed papers.
