My First Photo Trade Experience

I've blogged about the Photo Trade here, here and here, so if you don't know what it is by now, shame, shame on you. A few short months ago I signed up for this project run by Jen Altmen and was promptly sent a email informing me the theme for this months trade would be summer and my trade partner would be a random stranger from the other side of the world who went my the name of Lauren Beacham.

Lauren (who ever she was) was to prepare me a little package of Polaroid goodness which according to Photo Trade by laws had to include a professionally printed 5x5 photographic image and anything else her heart desired

All I had to do was return the favor, we were given a deadline of July 23, which of course I missed and ended up forking out a small fortune to express courier the package to the USA but by golly gosh it was worth it... Knowing how excited I was to come home and find this parcel from this random stranger on my doorstep I would hate to be the one to let the team down when it came to returning the aforementioned favor.

Her Polaroids are stunning and I cant wait to find them homes on my walls! Thank you Lauren.. See you round the next trade!
