Simply B pumpkin exchange

Welcome everyone and Happy Halloween!

Recently I took part in a "Secret Pumpkin Exchange" through Simply B stamps.  Crafters from all over the world were matched up and sent each other a box of Halloween themed crafting goodies.  We were also to make each other something using the image Simply B Stamps "Pumpkin Queen" digi.  Also we were supposed to make each other a Halloween themed project like a box or bag....but unfortunately I misunderstood and didn't do that.  :(   I feel especially terrible because what I received from my partner was a true work of art!!!

So on to the good stuff.  I was sooo excited to have been matched with Holly, who's blog if you've been following along you visited last.  Holly and I have chatted a bit over facebook and I'm always in awe of the awesome projects she makes.  This was certainly no exception!

Here's the card I received....

my AMAZING hat box....

and the cutest little tag....
Such talent.
Ok, and I have been dying to tell Holly THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!  Honestly guys, she went WAAAAY above and beyond and completely spoiled me. I'm truly grateful for all the effort she put into making me the most amazing package!

 to name a few: rhinestones, glossy accents, distress ink, charms, glitter glue, ribbons, and more!
 Four super cute stamp sets including a Stamping Bella and some Halloween bottle cap ones
An assortment of 12x12 Graphic 45 'Rare Oddities' paper, and a giant embossed paper pack.  There were some yummy goodies too...but they didn't make it to the picture taking!  haha
Holly, thank you so much for your kindness, and Betty thanks for organizing all of this!  Oh, and Earnhart and Ella enjoyed the gift too!!!  lol

Up next you're going to see Keri!  Happy Halloween!
