Hello! 

I know I have been kind of MIA lately, but I have been busy…..I am doing a family tree for a birthday gift and so I am have been happily in the land of the past……:)

But I am back now and I wanted to share the lovely box of goodies I got from my swap partner Joyce ( Scrap for Joy).  Joyce and I were lucky enough to get to meet here in Mesa, AZ a few years back and we hit it off immediately!  We have been great friends ever since, so when I found out that Viv had paired us up for her Valentine Swap I was so happy!

Take a ganger at what Joyce sent….she knows me so well! lol

The note on the inside of the box….

Everything was wrapped in fun tissue and hearts…..and sooo me!  I have been fortunate that my last few swaps, the people really knew me…. this was also a box of birthday goodies….I will be uh…..older on Saturday! So I got a double gift. :)  Quite a few photos here as Joyce went a little crazy! :)
