painted polka dot crate and other goodies

I put this package together for Cerri at Little Pink Studio.

Cerri is always busy stocking her shop tempting me with things to buy and inspiring me with her blog. Cerri has been a source of inspiration for me for a while now.

Cerri and I opted to swap with this theme in mind: playful/whimsical/girlie/pinks/yellows/possibly shades of white/maybe pastels...
It was all very specific as you can see.

This is a sample of Cerri's work on Flickr:

1. pocket tags, 2. Close up, 3. Large Spanish flash cards, 4. Dreaming of Spring, 5. Cute and simple..., 6. Vintage greeting cards, 7. Mom's, 8. Sneak peeks, 9. Mine

This is how I wrapped each of her gifts. I used pink polka dotted tissue, pink organza ribbon, mini marking tags with pink rhinestone hearts for labeling, and a bit of shredded vintage sheet music.

Then, I put all of her gifts in this hand painted pink polka-dotted crate. I wish I would have taken a before picture of the ugly grey color it was before:

Tomorrow, I'll share the rest.
