Miss Rhea's Easter Basket Swap!


I participated in Miss Rhea's Basket swap and it was really fun! I had two wonderful partners who created cute, sweet baskets and filled them with Easter love....
I wanted to post the baskets I gave at the end but waited till this morning to do this post and am still half-asleep and posted it backwards! So... here are the gifts I gave:
I made banners for each of the girls, this one says bloom....


And then this one says spring......



And here is a pic of what was generally in each basket....a little penant, a chick, some candy, a banner and a package of goodies to create with...
Oh yeah! For those of you who didn't do this swap, we had to decorate a yogurt container as the basket. I used fabric and yellow crepe paper, some trim and a millinery flower.....

Now...here is what I recieved from Suzie of Suzies Button Creations.... She made a cute easter tablet with some sparkly pencils, a mini stamp set, a little birdie eraser (love this!) a cute little birdie tile and a candle...and her basket was made to look lik a cake on the sides with sparkly eggs and chenille chicks....darling!


And here is my basket from Marcia of Vintage French Hen.... She made a cute pastel basket with a darling vintage tag (wish I would have photographed that better!) It had yummy candy (sorry I ate that!) A cute faux cupcake which looks great on my my tiered plates, a vintage candy container, some vintage earrings to create with and some easter cupcake picks and cute chenille chicks.......

Here they are together.... There's the tag!


Thank you to Rhea for hosting this swap and go visit her site to see all the other swappers! This was a fun swap! If you haven't done any swaps because you are afraid, Jump in! You meet new friends and it is really fun! Have a great Easter tomorrow! karen......
