SBS Spring Basket Buddy Swap Blog Hop

What a fun way to get welcome spring...with a Spring Basket Swap and Blog Hop.  Before we get started...you should have come here from Carrie's blog...the complete hop list is at the bottom of this entry if you have lost your way.  

I always love these swaps..what is more fun than putting together a fun basket of goodies...well, GETTING ONE!  Emily was my "basket buddy" and she did a FABULOUS job!  I was so excited to get my package from Australia.  Elizabeth (Emily Shroom) filled my basket with a Spring Equinox theme in mind...3 of  each item..and a beautiful tag featuring the Simply Betty Image all participants were given.  

So, let's check it out....

Here is the basket right out of the box

Left:  Look at all those fun, little packages!
Right:  chocolates from Haigh's, a specialty chocolatier in Australia.  The little animal on the tin is a bilby.  And, yes, the chocolates are delicious.

Left:  Look at all this fun stuff!  Now let's break it down...
Right:  Rhinestone flourishes, crocheted flowers and butterflies, heart charms and fancy pins

Left:  glazed buttons, Graphic 45 chipboard tags and metal butterflies, Dusty Attic blooms
Right:  Webster Pages Bloomers, cloisonne beads, enamel strawberries, resin flowers and hearts, action wooblers, wooden shapes, and mini thermometers

Tag made with image from SBS...I just love the bright, spring colors!

I think Elizabeth did a wonderful job...and I can't wait to use all the fun embellishments she sent me.  Now, make sure to go see what everyone else received from their basket buddy.  Next on the hop is:  Erin.
