Swapping Goodness and Walk the Layout

Well the Favorite Things Swap at Dandelion Wishes is winding down and with boxes criss crossing all over the country, I got my Favorites box from my partner Renee today! Even more amazing, she got her box from me today too!

So here's the box she sent:

I wonder what could be in it?!?!

Another box! Ooooo mysterious...

Quite frankly I would have been happy at this point had it only been this box. Hello, it's pink and black and cute! lol But I had to press on...So with trembling fingers and nervous glee (think Ralphie from "A Christmas Story" opening his Red Ryder) I opened the fabulous pink polka dot box and discovered a treasure trove!!!!

Holy smokes! Knee socks! A gossip mag! Whoppers! A mini sewing kit! It goes on and on and on! I wish I could get a better picture to do it all justice. All I can say is THANK YOU SO MUCH RENEE! What a fabulous treat to get in the mail and you have some awesome favorite things for sure!

In much less exciting news, here is the layout I made for last month's sketch contest over at LPS. I didn't come close to winning but I liked how it came out!

I have yet to touch this month's kit yet and the sketch contest for this month ends in a few days...I better get to it!

Kinda funny...I caught a glimpse of the first pic and thought...hmmmm, that looks familiar...I think that's what Renee sent her package in. LOL. So, your swap partner was Renee?! She's fabulous (we're related, I have to say that...also, I really love her). I also really love your blog! It is so cute and red...and fun...and red, did I mention red? I'll be back. :)

Did you say that you met your husband on Xbox Live? That's so crazy! My DH is a Xbox Live junkie. That's so sweet to think that you found true love through gaming. :)
