Kimi is a HAPPY GA Girl !

Ladies, my happy mail came on Saturday !!! Tammy I can not thank you enough for such a wonderful box of goodies.
My apology for not being able to post pics before now. For any who don't know my FIL has had a heart attack and has been in the hospital now going on almost two weeks. He had open heart and blockage in three arteries replaced last Wednesday. So we have been spending many of our days and nights there. So to you ladies, thank you for your prayers and patients while I was late to make this post. Now on to the goods and you may call dibs all you want to.. then have a seat and cry in your beer cause nothing is leaving the peach state ! LOL !!!

Up first... I was welcomed by Cammi card filled with thoughts from my HM gal pal Tammy. This is another wonderfully colored and constructed card added to my collection. Cammi, you just gotta love it when you send someone something and they put it to use.
a fantastic compliment :)

Next up..... I was sooo happy to see these papers in person!! Tammy you don't know it but I have been drooling and trying to decide if I should buy these papers from Pink Paisley. You know how it goes when you see something on line and your not sure if it looks as good in person as it does in someones marketing photo. Well these papers do !!! and I can not wait to use them on a project!

Yes girlie's.... more paper for meeeeeeeee!!! This time its some wonderful paper by 7 Gypsies and several if not all designs from the Fine and Dandy collection by My Minds Eye. Tammy also threw in some distress stain!!!! and again cant wait to play with it. Its one of the things i wanted to try but could not justify spending my money on if i was not sure I would love it.
Thank you TAMMMYYYY!!!...... no ladies... I'm not done yet but already so appreciative :)

I absolutely can not believe the work that went into this amazing mini !!!! It is to die for !!!
Tammy I still am in awe at how you were ever able to part with it and I am soooooo happy you were !
This will by all means have a special place in my new scrap house!
My mother in law is staying with us tonight and it was the first thing she saw when she entered my house.
And the first thing she wanted to investigate! So thanks Tammy for providing a distraction to the dust covered furniture and the laundry piled high! You have earned your wings!
Eat your heart out gals !!! here is my Garden mini !

A total of 16 folders !!! on the inside for photos and journaling!  
This is sooo amazing Tammy as was my whole lot of goods!  Thank you so very much!!!

OhMyGosh Kimi!!!

I drooled over that sneak peek you posted last weekend, and I pouted too because, as hard as I tried, I just could not figure out how it could possibly be any of the items I had on MY wish list.  So when Mr. FedEx drove up to my door today I was not entertaining the thought that YOUR name would be on the mailing label and OMGosh was I surprised!  My eyes were already watering before I could get the box inside my house.  And when I opened it, I was overwhelmed by how beautiful your work is - just stunning.  You amaze me girl, it is perfectly Denni-style and I love, love LOVE it!!

Needless to say ladies, I am calling NO DIBBS!!

Here is my fantabulously gorgeously amazing altered box for storing work in progress:

Check out all the layering and piecing and dimension - just gorgeous!

And look at the pockets and compartments inside!

She added goodies - stamps, copic pens and copic paper - you are too funny Kimi, I wish for stamped images and you send stamps to me and tell me to do it myself!  I chuckled when I read that, lol!!

And then to top it off she sends ME a pretty thank you card - what a hoot!  She thanked me because she was able to make this for me in this swap, LOL!  You are a goof girl!  But hey, anytime I can help you out by requesting that YOU create something purty for ME, just let me know, I'm there for ya.  ROFL!!
Kimi, your work is amazing and I feel so lucky to be the recipient of such a beautiful project.  Thank you so much.  I'll treasure it.  Muah!!

Yeah! I came home to happy mail!

I came home to a wonderful Gibbs happy mail package from Lisa!  I received a lovely idea tin & a tilda stamp.  Thank you so much Lisa!

Yoohoo...secret swap partner....

My box of goodies is heading west to you right now!  I mailed it yesterday so you should have it by the weekend - keep an eye out.  I hope you like what I made for you.  This is prob my fave, but gosh golly the pic somehow got all swirled so you can't exactly see the details.  Wonder how that happened?  (heehee!)  Ooooh well I guess you will just have to wait a couple more days.
