What I gave Emilie

Here is a little shot of what I gave to Emilie for the Ghoulishly Glamorous Swap. In the silver wrapped box is a pumpkin tassel. BOO letters, decoupaged with scrapbook paper then sprinkled with glitter, an apron that I made, fun dip, sour gummy worms, a ring pop(every girl needs a little bling!!), tissue, a notepad, glittery black EEK garland, cocktail napkins with her last initial. The two orange wrapped packages were little velvet coloring posters and a pumpkin sucker. I decoupaged a pail from Lowe's and glued pompoms and trim around to tuck all the goodies into.

A close-up of the tassel. Don't you just love my china?? I'm thinking the cabinet is about to get a makeover. The orange-y stain isn't gonna jive with my soon to be beautiful new cabinets.

The BOO letters. Hopefully the cuteness of everything else will make up for my atrocious glittering skills!!

The apron. Emilie hosts a mom's group call MOMents and I thought she could be the Hostest with the Mostest in this flirty little number!!

All packaged and ready to go!!

Oh, Elise!!!!
That gift basket is just too much!
Everything is just so precious!
She will definitely be the "hostess with the mostest" with that adorable/elegant apron.
OOOoooo, I love fun dip...wish I had some right now...
How lucky she is to have gotten you as a swap partner! She's gonna be thrilled!
Many Blessings,

Hi Elise, You gift basket is 'Boo-tiful'! I loved all the photos you shared - you just seem like such a fun loving girl - loving life, & I love that!

I am so happy for you in the house closing! Wow - that was fast! I look so forward to all the wonderful pictures that I know will make their way into your blog. An 'open house' so to speak. Hmmmm - a 'housewarming' party with all your cyber friends would be wonderful! Have a blessed weekend - can't wait to read that you are in your house. Hugs!
