April 's Swap!

Shoes, Shoes & More Shoes!!!
I am late posting this month's swap!!! But I'm not going to let the month go by and skip a swap!!! This is a swap a month for a year.... I'm so excited about this swap!!! ((The Bird Swap got me a bit behind.. we had some issues getting all the birds to me but the birds are leaving the coop so we can have that swap behind us and pictures will be posted this weekend!!! It was amazing!! Totally worth the wait!!))
So onto April's Swap!
This is a group swap.. ~ I'm going to limit us to 7!
I'm sure you all have seen all of the Altered Paper Shoes out there! I love them! If you haven't~ Google "Paper Shoes"~ there are even tons of video tutorials. I got my inspiration through thumbing through Stampington & Company's Marie's publication from April 2009. I loved Sherry Murphy, Rebecca Stohlman & Connie Stuart's altered paper shoes!
You can create your own pattern or use on on the web to create your paper shoe! If you need me to send you one~ I can do that to!
You will use your vintage papers, wallpapers. jewelry bits, buttons, baubles, lace, trims, mica, glitter, old photos and any other embellishements you can think of to create your shoes.Please punch hole in heel and thread with ribbon or seam binding. We are going to stick with vintage, shabby chic colors! You will create 7 shoes ( please make sure you sign your artwork.
Sign ups begin tonight March 24th~ and will run through March 31st or until we reach 7 Artists!
You will have until April 25th to complete and get your shoes mailed to me:Please try your very best to stick to the date~~ I know I look really forward to getting my swaps on time and it just stresses us all if we are late! I know situations arise.. but pretty please try!
I'm thinking this will be super fun!!!!
Leave a comment below or email me and let me know if you would like to play!
