INITIALLY YOURS....THE LETTER 'B'

As most of my followers know I am not a 'crafty' girl.  However this fun swap sounded like something I could do and push myself to be a little creative

'Initially Yours' hosted by Sue at 

My swap partner is Becki of
She has been as busy as I have and hasn't had a chance to mail my swap yet.  I was able to get mine mailed Monday before heading over to help my daughter and SIL.  So this is what I sent Becki!
I took an old candy box and covered it in scrapbook paper.  I bought a wooden letter B and painted it blue which is Becki's favorite color.  I then covered it with buttons in shades of blue.
I got this done before leaving for camp so when I got back I had very little time to continue to craft.  I finished the box and decided to add some items for her that began with the letter 'B'
A cute note pad that says Believe,
a stamp saying Beautiful and a 
Bracelet in shades of blue

Becki I hope you enjoyed this swap.  I am looking forward to receiving mine and will share it on my blog. 
Hugs,
Linda

Wow. You are beyond clever with this adorable swap! All the B's rolled into one! She will be over the moon with excitement. Makes me want to change my name to Benny.

For someone who is not good at crafting, I would say you look like an expert to me. The box is so neat and pretty. I always go gaga over blue and the buttons are perfect. I know Becki will love all the "B" gifts you sent.
Have a great day, Ginger :)
