A Wonderfully Whimsical Village

A few weeks ago I shared a little house I made for a swap in our
Paper Whimsy group. I now have my entire village to share with you.

From left to right: my house, Jan's (A Journey..), Kim's (Tabby's Place) and Christine's.
Even the "back doors" are sweet. I'm going to get mini hinges so I can display it standing like a village of rowhouses.

It's always such a pleasure swapping with my talented PW friends! So much so that I couldn't resist joining in on the next swap...
How much fun is this? The ideas are already swirling in my head.

I loved this swap, too. YOU, however are way ahead of the game by posting a pic of the finished houses! I'd better get crackin'!

Don't you love the new swap? It's going to be so fun!

Glad we were swappee's!

Wonderful shadow box. Yes, it does give lots of great ideas! The village tags are special too. I do want to participate in your grandma's attic matchbox too. I will look for the right post to sign up, or do we sign up on flickr? I will check it out.
Thanks JoAnne

Oh your little village is adorable! I'm sorry I missed out on this, I got scared away at the mention of cutting chipboard :(
I'm thinking of doing the dress swap though. Should be fun!

Thanks for stopping by my (I'm in love) blog post.
