I finished my ATC's for the swap I'm in at my local scrapbooking store. There are 16 participants and our theme was "Under the Sea". It was lots of fun and I can't wait to see what next month's theme will be. This is only my second time making an ATC, and I just loved the whole process!

On our recent vacation to Sanibel, we brought home a bountiful of shells and a small container of sand as I wanted to give these ATC's an authentic look. Here are all 16. It was interesting to make 16 of the same thing, but once I had the first done, it was nice to sit and listen to Norah Jones while working on them.

Tomorrow I'll show you the ATC's I received. Hope everyone is having a wonderful Sunday!!

I am absolutely going to have to try those ATCs sometime, sugar! I see them everywhere but have never ever done one. Yours is delightful and reminds me of the beach, of course.

Oh dear! I'm going to have to ask my daughter what ATCs are. She's very much into scrapbooking.

Being craft challenged, I have no idea what an ATC is. I do know that it is likely whatever you do will look good

Your ATCs are beautiful! I am in a small ATC swap group and just love it. We have monthly themes. I think "Under the Sea" will have to be one of them! Love the little touches of sand and sea shells.
