I primed the entire case with Kilz. Then I painted the outside of the case an aqua color, being sure to leave the trim and locks white. Next I cut out some G's using the cricut. I attached them using spray adhesive. Then I randomly stuck "precious jewels" (as Gina likes to call them) around the G's. I tied various coordinating ribbon around the handle.
For the inside I painted it ballet pink. I then trimmed the tattered edges with purple polka dot ribbon (I used hot glue for this). I covered the drawers with flocked scrap book paper ( I used spray adhesive again for this). I then put eyelets through the drawers and looped purple polka dot ribbon through for drawer pulls. I am in love with this case! Thankfully my name starts with a G too, so I can take it back when she outgrows it LOL!This is the inside, not being used for what I made it for LOL!
Christina sent some yummy strawberry candies, which did not make it to the photo shoot, Thank you :)
And finally Kristy sent a much needed needle case (that's what it was right?) I am using it for that anyway ;) I need to photo it though, because it is lovely! Thanks!
Thank you all for participating :)

I have enjoyed this so much! We did have a few people drop out/not respond, but we still ended up with lots of variety! Since starting this swap I have celebrated my sisters birthday, my daughter's birthday, and my own birthday. I should have been keeping track of the countless Dr visits with a sick infant, not to mention Gina's 5 year boosters, which were a huge ordeal! Adler is still fighting off a sinus bug! I will be back tomorrow with more pics :)

We had it at Jump 4 Fun! One of those big bounce house places. The kids all had a blast, and the parents were grateful to have the rest of their Saturday to do whatever they wanted.
She had her core group of friends that she really wanted to come in attendance, so all was great! Her BFF, as they like to say, is the adorable little girl on her left. Gina had a great day! It was so wonderful to watch her play with all of her friends. I feel truly blessed to have such an amazing little girl!
*Oh adorable # 5 shirt made by me :) Gina picked the crazy rainbow fabric out years ago. I always wondered what I would do with it. I really like the way it turned out and so did she!
