Easter Tag Swap

As I mentioned, I partcipated in an Easter Tag Swap hosted by Sandy at 521 Lake Street.
I love participating in these swaps - they are always so much fun!

For my partner Linda I picked out a glittered bucket with a vintage bunny to put all her goodies in.

Inside the bucket I put a couple sheets of stickers, small pink flower glitter, chocolate bunnies, Reeses pieces in a carrot shaped bag, small letter rubber stamps, an ink pad and a chickie inside a paper mache egg that I decorated.

This is the tag I made for Linda. I applied book paper to the back, painted the scalloped edges, stamped and colored the Easter chick, and added a shrink plastic tag and the cheesecloth that I hand dyed.

My partner Linda sent me an awesome package of goodies with a chick theme. I just LOVE everything she included in my gift!

Don't you just love the little chickie bag that held some of my treasures? Inside the bag were the vintage Easter postcards, chickie stickers, a chickie sticky note pad, a floral notepad and floral note cards. Oh - and don't forget the candy! :)

Look at this sweet tag she made for me! The little girl on the front is just precious and how cute are these chicks! Although I couldn't capture it in the photo, the little chicks are sparkly as is the grass. The blue gingham with the buttons and the little woven bow on the front of the tag just make it feel so happy.

The back of the tag is so cute too - love the rows of chicks and the nice tag label that is tucked nicely at the bottom.

Can you believe this beautiful Easter apron she made for me!?! If you look at the top photo you will also see the matching pot holder. Perfect! And just in time for Easter this Sunday...

Linda *COMPLETELY* spoiled me!
