It's Pink Saturday AND Miss Rhea's Easter Basket Swap Link too!

Hi friends in blogland! I am sharing a bit of what I've shared earlier plus a few swaps I've received in Miss Rhea's Easter Basket Swap today!
And a couple other goodies thrown in from a swap with faux cakes too, just 'cause on that one!
First, I took part in Miss Rhea's Sweet N Shabby easter basket swap where we made baskets out of yogurt cups!
I received this wonderful basket from Marcia at Vintage French Hen...
And here's some of the goodies she sent, but not all, I just am highlighting for you!
And next I received this beauty from Karen at Recycled Rita...
And she made me this gorgeous swag, even though there were lots more, but this went right up on the fireplace!
I'm SURE you saw the PINK in there too for PINK SATURDAY
We are to show the baskets I made, and this is a repeat, so sorry Pink Saturday friends, but I want to show my swap girls too what I made!
I made these baskets and goodies to send along...

I used some velvety millinery flowers
and covered it all around
and added some goodies inside too like a yummy
cherry blossom candle..

and I also made a notebook for all
those lists and such...

And for another swap partner in this same swap i made this basket...

This one had spackle icing with a doilie bottom with
chicks and eggs and flowers!
It too had little goodies like rubberstamps, a bird eraser and images
to tuck inside
and also a notebook!

I just LOVE making these notebooks!
Also as part of a faux cake swap I received this gorgeous cake from Lori Hairston...
And I couldn't stop making these faux cakes, it was the highlight of my Easter crafting this year TRULY!
I made a large one for myself and I just wanted to share!
Last but not least, I have to show you, look what knocked on my door this week to visit,
Happy Easter from Suzie Button's home
to Yours!
And from baby Madison too!
