LIFE IS NOT MEASURED BY THE NUMBER OF BREATHS WE TAKE, BUT BY THE MOMENTS THAT TAKE OUR BREATH AWAY.

Swaps, On the Giving End

Well, I am hoping I can safely post these pics of what I sent my Swappy Partners. They should have them by now. :) For Tamy at Ga Ga for Garlands, the theme was " Celebrate " , and this is the banner I made her. Her colors were Pink and Ivory. I love how this turned out !! I call it "Baby Cakes "
Of Course I forgot to take pics of the other goodies I sent. lol. I sure hope she enjoyed it !!! :)

For Lori, Faerie Window, I showed the outside of the box last time, now here is the contents. She likes pinks, soft minty green and robins egg blue.












I sure hope she likes everything !!! :) And lastly , a few things I made for ebay this week.
I have one more swap to show you, for my friend Sharon, that will have to be next time as I have way too many pics here !!! Have a great Weekend !!!!

Hugs,

Rhea
