I don't 'do' ATCs

Well I do  now!

Sara of Cardmaking Paradise  was hosting an Internations ATC swap when  I logged on to the forum after bringing Mr Lottie back from hospital.    I was pretty tired (understatement) and had lots to 'worry' about - but I thought this was just the challenge I needed to distract me - and it did.

You can read all about it here  and see all the fabulous entrants.  There was a nice long lead in date so it gave me enough time to get my act together.

Yesterday our packages came back.  There was a tutorial on how to made a little book to put them all in.  I am useless at doing things like that - but it was so simple and the ATCs were so lovely that I got stuck in last night and made it!

 We had to make eight ATCs and I made an extra one for myself which I stuck on the front of holder
I was over the moon with the ones I received

Thank you everyone I am thrilled to bits.

It's a fantastic little ATC holder and I have room for 4 more ATC's !!

Not that I am hinting any CMP friends

Great idea making a spare atc for the cover of your book. I agree it was a fabulous swap and like you it distracted the mind from other events going on in my life. Loved your atcs but I didn't get a Lottie original - hopefully next time!

Of course you 'do' atcs, your selection is fab and your little holder to keep them all in is wonderful too

Love your ATC holder and must bear in mind that you have some spare space the next time I make an ATC:) Why didn't it cross my mind to make an extra one for the cover??? That was inspired! I love my Lottie original :)

ATC's are such fun - they don't require a whole lot of time to make and they don't take up a lot of space either, so overall they're a win/win. You received some really nice ones!

Lovely little collection and what a great idea to make an extra for yourself - it makes a great cover on the super little book!

ATCs are such fun to do and give you lots of room to experiment - I love 'em! You've certainly displayed your collection to fine effect in that accordian folder.
