Cupcake Swap Parcel

A while ago now I took part in the Oh Sew Beautiful Cupcake Swap, arranged by Jodi at Oh Sew Beautiful.  I was partnered with the lovely Beki from Beki Marie.  I am going to let the photos do the majority of the talking in this post, you will be able to see why.

It looked pretty from the moment it was received, a gorgeous postcard and glossy, pretty cupcake wrapping paper.

More of the pretty paper, and a gorgeous smelling cupcake scented Yankee Candle wax melt.

This is what was beneath all the paper.  Some cupcake socks (I love my socks), pretty cupcake tissues, red polka dot cupcake cases, pink sprinkles to decorate cupcakes, a gorgeous cupcake patterned passport cover, a cute handmade felt cupcake keyring and a beautiful handmade cupcake wall hanging.  I can see how much love and time went into making the handmade items, so let's just take a closer look at them.

I love the different fabrics used in the wall hanging, I have it hanging on my wardrobe door so I can see it every day and smile.  The keyring is so cute, I'm not sure how to use this yet, I don't want to use it as a keyring as I know it will get dirty in my bag.  Anyone have any suggestions?

The passport holder isn't very clear in the above photo, so here is a close up.

I can't wait to be able to use this, although it may be a little while yet, but it will get used, I'll make sure it does.

How lucky was I?

Thank you so much Beki, I love all of my gifts, they are perfect.    

I'd like to say thank you also to Jodi for arranging such a wonderful swap.  It was great fun and one I have really enjoyed taking part in.
