#31.Hope Wallace Karney -little book swap!

Oh my! I was very excited to see that Hope Karney signed up for the little book swap - and even more so when I received her little books in the mail the other day!! Hope is an artist and designer with a distinct style and part of the team of instructors including me, who put together the on-line paper arts course, Artful pages - 4 Artists 4 ways. Hope has her own company, Paper Relics. I'll quote from her blog, "Hope also has a love for art journaling and enjoys sharing her pages with others to inspire them to start a journal of their own."  
Hope is from Maryland and has sent us 2 gorgeous books for our exchange. You can see more photos of her little books and read how she made them here, on Besottment by paper Relics.

2 books in their own cotton stamped bags and a gift for me! 

One Cover
 One Back
 One inside 

Another Cover 
 more of the inside pages . . . 

so beautiful! I love Hope's mix of papers.

Hope gave me 5 of these beautiful cards she makes -
 as a hostess gift!
 I love them.

Thank you so much, Hope!
What an awesome, inspiring addition to our swap!
