Well, I said I'd post a piccie of my gift I received... it was the album from Karen that she made for the mini-album swap over at the DoCrafts site. When I opened the package, I found a beautiful box carefully covered in green material with jolly Santas all over, and tied with a gorgeous ribbon. As you can guess, I was impressed before I even opened the box :)
So much work went into this amazing little album - and the colours are perfect for me... sort of traditional with a modern twist. As for the Christmas pressie I received (yes, a present was included also!) - it was a stunning little calendar, and a sweet mini stamp set. I am such a spoilt woman *lol*
I just have to share this little album - please do click on the photograph below to see more detail - it's full of vellum pockets and little tags, the cutest embellishments and expertly applied glitter (I really love the glitter in this album!). If you can, take a peek at the close-up of the first page... it's a little envelope with a card inside. On the card is a key, and inside the card it reads "Santa's Magical Key" - GORGEOUS!!!! So, so me... I love it!
And here's my special pressie...
So, Karen, if you get a chance to visit here, I want to say a huge "Thank You!" which is easier to type than actually say at the moment due to the huge grin on my face :)
