Purplecats chunky house pages...

So I am in a swap on its for chunky book pages ( these are 6 x 4, with a roof shaped top, and are "chunky"). I finally got my first 2 done, I love how they have turned out. We can do 4-10 pages, obviously the more you do the more you get back! So I am aiming to as many as I can. I was in the first chunky house swap and the returns I received were amazing!
