My First Pocket Letter Swap

What awesome way to use your scraps with a Pocket Letter Swap hosted by Scraps of Color.  We were to make three pocket pages for three different sisters.  The theme was getting to know you.  I think I spent a lot of time on the city lol.  Hope you can see it well with the page protectors on.  As you see, I live in Memphis.  LOVE just about all teas!  The National Civil Rights Museum is where you can find me volunteering (LOVE that place).  Fascinated by clocks and always available for a Kodak moment.  Go Grizzlies!
 On the back I left a lot of love i.e. First row:  2 die cut sizzlets (sister die cut and flourish), four stamps by Hanna, Tim Holtz tickets.  Second row:  Sizzix camera, Spellbinders window and a tag with a Verve stamp scripture in the back, Sizzix file folder die with lace wrapped around it attached to an altered paper clip.  The flower is EK success and a strand of pearls.  Third row:  One of my favorite teas, a rubber stamp and an ATC I made.
 View of the ATC.  It has two black birds on top of the stickered sentiment.
 A stamp from the $1 bin at Michaels with a few Prima flowers.
 Love this window.   I stamped a Verve scripture on a tag.
 I should have taken this all out to get a better photo.  Love how I put it together.
 Played around with my stamps and ink
 Yes this is me!  My mother had some ribbon in her stash that totally mocked the dress so I made a bow for my hair.
 Love this cute stamp set with the tea bag, spoon and sentiment.  There is always a moment for tea!
 One of the views of Downtown Memphis.  Used a page pebble for the date and poured some fun embellishments at the bottom.
 Just wanted to build a little love with a warm burlap and cute brad.  Stamped sentiment.
 Just a note card punched with EK note punch.  Added some fiber to the paper clip and two hearts expressing unity.  Our country needs it!
 Time for a Kodak moment and walk down Beale Street.  You might even see Elvis walking and singing.
 How about those Grizzlies!  Love our Team and the LOVE they pour in Memphis!

Well tell me what you think?  I would love to get your feedback.  Looking forward to another swap...SO many possibilities and it's great to send some goodies.
