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

Pink Saturday and Matchbox swaps

Happy Pink Saturday !! This is the first one in over a month I have been able to participate in. This is pre-scheduled. My Computer has a virus so I did this on hubby's laptop. No offense to you lap toppers out there but this is SO hard to use ! Forgive my lack of links Please say hi to Beverly, her link is on the right. My swap Partners links I will add in a few days when my computer is fixed.


A few months ago I joined three swaps ! I always take on way too much, but I just love getting out of my comfort zone and meeting new people :) The first was Speckled Eggs Paris Edition Matchbox swap. I just LOVE these wee boxes and was super excited to participate again. :) My Partners were Jennifer of Glitter my Days and Tobi of Pink Pixie Forrest. Yippee !!!

Here are the boxes they made for me. Jennifer's is on the Left and Tobi's on the right :)

Jennifer sent me all of these lovelies in this great bag. See the awsome fluer di Lis scarf ?

Tobi sent me these gorgeous french goodies :) Lots of pink and glitter !

Love this sweet sparkly journal and Limoges plate :)

These are the boxes I sent them. Aqua for Tobi and Pink for Jennifer.

I made these crown charm bracelets. Again, aqua for Tobi and Pink for Jennifer. :)

For Tobi

For Jennifer. Both had jewels and more goodies inside the boxes.

This is a sneak peek at another swap I was in. Jenny's Vintage Vacation Swap. I will share pictures of those soon as well as a crown swap I was in.

Happy Pink Saturday !! Thank you Sweet Beverly ! I have missed you all so much !!

Hugs,

Rhea

Rhea, such beauties you gave AND received! I always love your creations. Tobi is such a neat gal, too. I haven't met Jennifer yet but I'm sure she loved her treasures from you also.

Hope you are feeling better. I'm finally on the mend (I hope!)
