From the Retreat to Fairview

We exchanged kits with one another this time around at the "Retreat."  There were 8 of us and we each had someone assigned to us, that we would create a kit for.  It could be anything really.  One gal got the makings of a perfect gourmet cookie recipe.  Someone got a stationary kit complete with personalized stamp all done up in a lovely lid box.  Another gal got a kit that was done up to give oneself a wonderful pedicure.  Some kits had fabric.  The point was that a kit was provided that the person receiving it would really like.  Aimee gave to me, and she absolutely knew what I like.  I was stunned when I saw that the beautiful case sitting there  was for me.  She knew that I loved anything french, plus she knows how I love to scrapbook and do paper crafts, so the pictures you will see here are of all the special details she put into the French case.

This is my beautiful case!   It was like Christmas!
When I opened it I found all sorts of eye candy such as. . . . . .
Blank stationary, that will be turned into lovely french greeting cards wrapped up with a velvet brown ribbon, some brown tulle, and these sweet little blue forget-me-nots.

Isn't it wonderful that products like these can be found for us to use in our paper crafts.  We are lucky to have such loveliness made for our embellishing!  I think "be still my heart," were my exact words when I looked at all of this!
The pad of 48 sheets of 8x8 paper is titled "Ella Blue" and is perfect and the keys are so special too!
check out the lovely page markers that were in there too.  Thank you again so much Aimee.  I am swooning over it still!
