Egg Carton Swap

Good day fellow blogland friends!  Hope you are having the best kind of Saturday you can.  :)  For the moment my girls are playing blissfully, so I thought I would sneak in a post.  Lots of photos here just to warn ya.

My friend Alex hosted an Egg Carton Swap with the local scrapbooking group I run.  Each player chose a style & colors she would like to receive, and then we did a PIF (pay it forward) swap.  I created a "Shabby Chic/Vintage/Floral style" egg carton for Laura P.


I filled the inside with bits and bobs for Laura to use in her crafting. 



Here is a close up of the pocket I made for the inside of the lid which I filled with larger paper tags and such. 

Look at the gorgeous wrapping Alex did on the carton she made for me.

I love how she did the top of the carton for me.
Of course I know right away when I saw that Alex was my partner that I was in store for some really beautiful surprises!



I had a wonderful time making my carton for Laura.  Luckily our styles mirror each other and I was able to create something I would have loved to receive.  She wasn't able to make it to the event, so it is still waiting at my desk for her.  Hope she likes it.  I am downright giddy with my little beauty from Alex.  She is the epitomy of lovely creations!  Haha!

Hugs,
