Ann-Marie's Birthday Swap Package Came!

Our swap was such a wonderful success! Ann-Marie is a wondeful friend, and I really look forward to meeting her face to face one day.
The yellow buckets above were just loaded with buttons and brads, tags and other little things to embellish with. What could be more perfect for a Queen Bee!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH, Ann-Marie!

This is the centerpiece she made. I love the colors! It came at the perfect time, as we were celebrating (a little late) Mom's birthday! So much fun. She even included a really cool bag of "beans" to help the dowels stand up. They were so light, they were really deceiving.

These are the very creative cards she made. The first ones are very tiny little cards for all occasions. Very cute. The ones on the bottom are birthday cards, and the one in the center is gorgeous black glittery paper. Very chic. All are lovely!

Ann-Marie was very generous and added a LOT of extra goodies in her package! These are some of the embellishements, stickers, stamps, rub-ons, ribbons, and goodies for baby Porter that she included. So very sweet. I love them all.
Below are not one, not two, but THREE altered books that she decorated!

The paper bag album was a big challenge, and she did a great job! Every page is a work of art, ready for photos, and each pocket has a tag or small detail in it. Again, I love pink and green :-)

The Birthday Challenge Swap has happened!!! After weeks of working on our challenges Ann-Marie and I have completed all of them, and have exchanged our boxes of Birthday themed goodies, and WOW was it great!!! These are a few pictures of some of the goodies :-)

SO FUN! I was really hoping you would put pictures of all her goodies on here! She did some really really cute stuff, and that was so sweet of her to think of little Porter! Looks like it was a huge success! Glad you had fun, mom... Bet you can't wait for another one!

I love you! XOXO
