Miss Rhea's Easter Swap

I am so happy that I participated in Miss Rhea's Easter Swap.
Thank you Miss Rhea! This was so much fun and alot of work on the hostess's part. 
We each received 2 partners and we were to make a basket using a yogurt cup and include 5 treasures with it. My first partner was Linda.
This is my beautiful basket and treasures from Linda as I took them out of the box.

I asked my partners to use creams, whites, beiges etc.
This is a detail of my basket , a sheet music flower
These are the treasures Linda included with my basket...Pompom trim, a rhinestone button, lace and a chandelier crystal all on the most beautiful tags. She also included chandelier stamped muslin ribbon with an Eiffel tower charm. I really enjoyed all of it!
I love chandeliers! Thank you soooo much Linda.

My second partner was Leslie.
This is the pretty basket she gifted me with and all the pretty wrapped treasures.
Here is a close-up of the pretty basket she made.
These are my gorgeous treasures unwrapped.
They include the sweetest tiny seam binding covered wreath, a velvet bookmark,
a rhinestone pin, a shaker of silver glitter,
and a millinery flower of the most beautiful shades of ecru and sand. Thank you Leslie, I love it all!
Happy Blessed Easter to everyone!
