Miss Rhea's Easter Basket Swap - Revealed!

What fun I had in being one of the 71 swappers in this great swap!  You can go to Miss Rhea's blog to check out the other participants and see the amazing baskets they created.  Thanks so much Miss Rhea for hosting this swap!

I was partnered with two sweet gals, Amy of Paper Trails by a Paper Lover and Rosalyn-Sue of The Little Bluebird Diaries.  They sent me just the sweetest little baskets!  Glitter and candy and flowers (and candy!) and ribbons and tags and a sweet little photo holder!  There was even a JoAnn's gift card - no way!  They really did their homework!  Check them out!

I love everything about them!  Look at all the great goodies they blessed me with, too!  Thank you ladies - you just made my week!

Okay, now for the little baskets that I sent to them.  Like I said - I had so much fun.  I stayed up late at night trying to keep my ideas and thoughts from running wild.  There were so many options!  I made little felt bunnies, velvet bookmarks with pretty little trinkets, and glittered eggs for each basket and lined them with "grass" made of shredded sheet music.  So here they are:

Amy likes shades of red so I tried to throw in lots of reds and pinks.  The basket was covered in scrap-booking paper that I found this past Christmas and some red ribbon that I have been hoarding for some time now!  I found some cute little paper flowers to adorn the basket and gave her some of my favorite ribbon on a vintage wooden thread spool.

And Rosalyn-Sue likes cream, pale blush pink, and pale robin's egg blue so I tried to put a little of those here and there.  I used a nice cream felt to cover the basket and pretty silk ribbon to cover the handle.  I love those little yellow paper flowers!  She also got a pack of spring-colored glitter and a bookmark.  (Huh.  I just realized I gave her two bookmarks!  Rosalyn-Sue - I hope you like to read!)

I can't wait to see the other little baskets at Miss Rhea's.  I may have to save a few more yogurt cups and work on these throughout the year!

Wishing everyone a Happy Easter!
