Hi Farmgirls,

*********************

PARTNERS: (PLEASE NOTE, YOU WILL SEND TO SOMEONE OTHER THAN WHO WILL RECEIVE FROM)

MEGUIRA --SENDS TO-- MARLEE
MARLEE --SENDS TO-- SUNY58
SUNY58 --SENDS TO-- MRSSARAHHALL
MRSSARAHHALL --SENDS TO-- DREAMER42
DREAMER42 --SENDS TO MEGUIRA

MAIL OUT IS NEXT WEEKEND, APRIL 14TH! PLEASE REACH OUT TO YOUR PARTNER FOR THEIR MAILING ADDRESS - HOPE YOU ALL HAVE FUN!

AND, PLEASE POST PICTURES IF YOU CAN, SO WE CAN SHARE INSPIRATION!
*********************

It's been a while since we swapped Altered File Folders. I'm thinking this time we could create an altered file folder that opens up similar to a greeting card with cards, flaps, pockets where a farmgirl could journal a few notes, tuck away a few keepsake photos, or love letters or use as a keepsake for a special vacation or occasion. Please embellish with pretties, lace, ribbons, fabric, paperclips, or anything else that catches your fancy!

This altered file folder could stand alone as a keepsake or be enclosed into a larger photo album or scrap book.

I've attached a few pictures below I found from pinterest as inspiration.

If you're interested, please sign up in email thread below.

Sign ups through April 7th.

Mail outs by April 14th.

Oh, Dianna, so happy you are joining! The more I think about this swap, the more I'm personally feeling challenged now. I'll be searching for inspiration over the next few weeks!

Sarah please forgive me but I will mail yours by Monday! I was set back a little over a week from a stomach virus and kidney infection. Working real hard last few days to catch up here. Thank you for understanding and I hope when you get it it was worth the wait!!

Dianna, I love the one you sent me! Thank you! :)

I saw this youtube video on a fun file folder project I thought some of the altered file folder swap participants might like:
