Bloggerette Matchbox Swap


We had a fun Summertime Matchbox Swap
in the Bloggerette Sorority.


My partner was Wanda, and this is the box I created for her.

I wrapped it with a piece of soft pink vintage wallpaper,
then added a piece of stamped fabric,
some beautiful laces, French charms and a handmade flower.


These are the goodies I included.



The package I received from Wanda was filled
with sweetly wrapped packages in fun summer colors.


And, she created not one, but two beautiful matchboxes for me!


I don't know what she used on the mini matchbox,
but, it is thick and hard, almost pottery-like. The colors
are amazing! And look at the sweet beaded dragonfly
she made, and the beautiful beads. Can't wait to use those!


I love the bright mix of summer colors she used
on the larger matchbox and the beautiful handmade flowers.


 And did she ever spoil me! There were so many fun
things in that matchbox, I can't wait to create with them!


She also made the sweetest little journal book.
It even has a little map piece of Salt Lake City. *squeal*

Wanda, I'm happy to have had the chance to swap with you.
Thank you for all the beautiful goodies....I LOVE them!
