Blissful ATC Swap- August

I had fun with our theme this month.....Orange. what can I do ? what could I make.....all I can think of is oranges , carrots and pumpkins.....lol..cannot do that, to boring and the natural thing for orange,  so here is what I come up with..I have an entire bolt of Orange pom-poms...can you imagine what I could do with all that.

I did use them plus orange frames to my orange butterfly..

So glad to use even a bit of that orange pom-pom stuff. Check out the swaps at Blissful ATC Swap Blog they do monthly swaps and it is so much fun....and you meet new friends...check out my new friend from this month..

Debbie from Simply Debbie and her husband Simple.  I was going to see my son in law off to Aphganistan and realized she wasn't far off my travel path...so I asker her if she would like to meet...check out the results here..Orange themed ATC Swap...she told the story so much better than I can...I must add my little poms loved them both also...Bentley especially liked Debbie...lol...still sorry about that Deb.

and here is the card Debbie gave to me.
I just love it and will always remember the special lady that gave this to me on the side of the road in Oklahoma.
