Pretty Parasols and Paper.

Mikayla and I participated in the parasol and Paper swap hosted by Shannon. We had such a good time putting our package together.

Today our package arrived from our swap partner Victoria. Mikayla was so excited. It was just what she needed as she was a bit upset as she could not go to school for 2 days because she had been sick. (you know when they are better but they can't go to school because they still could be contagious) This really picked her up.

Here is Mikayla with the package. Do you like her dress, it was mine when I was 7. A dear family friend made it for me for a school fancy dress ball. Mikayla would live in it if I let her she said it is a princess dress.

When we opened the box if was full of pretty pink tissue shredded paper and little parasols. So cute.

Here is Mikayla with all the packages before the unwrapping she is just itching to get those wrappers off.

Look at our goodies.
These are the cards Victoria made for each of us. Mikayla has hung hers up on her bedroom door.

Look at that cute little pony with parasols on it. Victoria you are amazing, Mikayla just loves it. See the little china figurine she is so sweet I have her on my hutch.

And this paper is lovely, we also got a book full of vintage music. Lots of fun to be had:)

I won't post what we did for Victoria as she has not got her package yet and I don't want to spoil it for her.

A big thank you Victoria for making such a lovely package. We could not have been happier. Mikayla is now wanting me to look for more swaps for us to do:).
