Super Summer Swap-What we gave...

When I saw that Hadley, over at Life of a Dairy Queen, was hosting a swap for the kids, I knew I had to join!! Lilly got partnered up with Holly. This is what all we sent to her. A sign I made with her name, yo-yo hair clips, fun flip flops, bubbles, and some crafty stuff. Holly's favorite color is orange so we went for mostly orange goodies.

I put the hairbows in this fun, embellished box.

Here is the sign I made.


Now, Jackson's partner's mom never responded to my email, so my dear friend, Jenny, offered to let her son Tanner swap with Jackson. Here is what all we sent to Tanner. Y'all remember the banner I made. A "T" covered with patriotic paper, a pizza pan turned magnetic ABC board, some fun/gross boy stuff, and some crafty stuff.

Here is the "T" I made.

For the pizza pan, I just sprayed it red, and mod podged paper on it. Some ABC's from Target will give Tanner lots of fun!!
Next time, we'll share what we received.
Thank you, Hadley, for coordinating this swap!!

Laura said...

I agree the pizza pan is an awsome idea!! I may make my 3 niece's one of those. They would love it!

I love your signs, do you use a Cricut to cut out the letters for them?

Hey Laura...
Yes, I do use a Cricut to cut the letters. If you don't have one, most scrapbook stores have die cuts that you can use. I did that before I got my Cricut. If you are in the market for a Cricut, check out Wal-Mart. Their prices are good on them{relatively speaking.}

Oh my word!! The kids must love this!! All those goodies look like so much fun!! I love the pizza pan!

I scrolled down to your post about your kitchen table and chairs. I think your chairs would look great white with your wall color. Maybe a cute table cloth too? Can't wait to see what you decide.
