PINK Saturday ~ AMOUR Valentine Swaps BIG Reveal

Happy PINK Everyone!!!

Today I am going to kill 2 birds with one stone...
I joining Cathy Scalise's of Heirloom Treasures
AMOUR Valentine Swap.
This was indeed one of the funnest
swaps I have done.  Well..actually
I haven't been involved in one quite this big.

Our challenge was to decorate up a good sized
HEART shaped box.
Then we could cram it as full as we wanted
with goodies our swap partner would love.

 creative jewelry from vintage pieces, check her out)

I got my creative juices going and had
so much fun!

AMAZING amount of
FAB goodies I got!!!
