Joli Paquet Trick or Treat Swap

For the last couple weeks, my focus has been on the Joli Paquet Trick or Treat swap. It was truly a pleasure participating. The above mosaic is a bit of what I sent to my partner. Oops, and I did forgot to take pictures of a few additional items I sent too...
*********
Well actually, what's more exciting is the totally fantastic package I received from Cerri!!
If you haven't visited her online boutique, you really must!Cerri really knew how to indulge me. I was so ecstatic to open all the treats she packed into my tote bag. I just love it! Take a look at the tote she embellished - the beautiful picture of a dark haired woman framed with an assortment of vintage lace and trims - gorgeous!
I really love the sparkly brooch she added too! Check out the smokey gray colored rhinestones. Aren't they fabulous!?
My oh my, was my tote ever overflowing with wonderful treats.
I love this silver hospital cup! Now why do you suppose we don't get silver cups at hospitals nowadays? I think I would have enjoyed a silver cup immensely when I had my babies in the hospital - I'm just sayin'... ;o) Cerri filled the cup with lots of pretty mother of pearl buttons, rhinestone trim and even another sparkly brooch!Take a look at these cool silhouettes! I love silhouettes!! I was so excited when I opened these. Cerri used old ledger paper for the backgroud - the old handwriting has so much charm!
She also filled a cute envelope with all sorts of images and cutouts which I can't wait to use!

I was desperately needing a new boo banner. Guess what? I got one! Here it is hanging with our pumpkin who'll be carved tonight.
This darling little ghost garland looks so cute hanging from one of my vintage funeral baskets. I got one of her prize ribbons too! It's really beautiful!!
Now, not only was I spoiled by Cerri, but so were the girls. She included two sweet decorated tote bags filled with yummy treats and even a fun craft for them to do too. Both girls were so giggly and excited while opening their gifts - we all had fun!!
Thanks so much Cerri! This was such a fun swap to share with you. I absolutely love everything - you completely "got" me! Thank you, Thank you!
**Please be sure to stop by the Joli Paquet blog and check out the links for other swap participants. It's always really fun to see what we each received.**

Your banner is too cute, too bad Halloween is over now, the swap looked just great, I was sorry that it wasn't open for international swappers, though I understood of course. Your girls look gorgeous, as always, hope all is well with you and your family.
