New Collaborative Book Swap & More for the Giveaway!

Carte de visites are those wonderful old photos, usually portraits, of the past. They were very popular in the late 1800's and I can understand why. Charming and small, they were mounted on heavy board to last for generations.
Some are so charming I simply collect them and keep them as they are. But others are just fun to play with.

Here's a perfectly lovely lady...

and here she is again, after my transformation.
Imagine a book of these wonderfully transformed ancestors!

That's exactly what we're going to do in my flickr group.

Here's some photos of a past collaborative I participated in.

Hope you'll join in the fun!
Cdvs are due May 11 so as not to interfere with Easter plans and I've listed some packs in my long-neglected etsy shop.

All of this cdv talk makes me want to add a couple to my giveaway! A couple of photos looks skimpy so I'll add some vintage trims and beads too.

The winner will be announced Wednesday or Thursday of this week.
