Oh my Goodies!! Easter Basket Swap

Today I recieved the lovliest Easter Basket from my swap partner, Dolly and it was loaded with easter goodness! I made sure to open it while the kids were occupied, because otherwise, I may not have gotten to take any pictures LOL

The basket itself has the cutest yellow flowers all over it, and it is positively darling!! Dolly made this gorgeous, scrumptious easter art, which is going on my wall, it is just the sweetest ever bunny girl, and my daughter already tried to make off with it...She also included a chipboard book, which I have been meaning to buy, so its like she read my mind :D :D

These gorgeous handmade tags made me giddy, they are so darling, and sparkley, and girly!! Love them to bits, and the candles made the whole box smell soooo good!!

She even wrapped the candies in the prettiest paper, with a delicate paper flower on the front of each one, and a sparkley little center. Too cute!! And the chocolate bunny was wrapped in vintage wallpaper, with the cutest paper trim over it, just exquisite. Love it to bits, Dolly, thank you SOOOOO much!!!!!!

And thanks to my pal Genevieve for hosting such a fun and wonderful swap!!!!

I posted a preview of the goodies that I made for Dolly, and here are the big piccies, LOL Here is the little sugared bunny, in his decorated basket/box

Here is the shadow box, so much fun to make!

Unfortunatley, I didn't take pictures of the basket I sent, I had strep throat and an ear infection, so I was in a hurry to mail it when I got better. I hope she likes it!

Viagra is the world renowned medicine for erectile dysfunction and most men have forgotten they ever had a problem with erections after its use. Take it on empty stomach and it will work in 30 minutes. Erections can be achieved on stimulation.
