Gift Exchange Present

I participated in Craftaholics Anonymous' Handmade Gift Exchange...again. I loved it last time and I loved it this time as well!

I was partnered with Katie from Sweet Rose Studios and she is AH-mazing. She told me that she pre-ordered a Kindle Fire (lucky!) and she wanted a case for it. She also informed me that she liked the more romantic, shabby chic, "Pride & Prejudice-y" look better than a modern look. Done and done. 

I got some pretty fabric and added some lace...

I was happy with the look. I haven't heard from her yet (hopefully she's received it!) but I'm really hoping she loves it. I also made her a little matching keychain...

I had fun with it! In return,  she made some printables for my baby girl's first birthday party! They are oh-so-cute and I can't wait until March to use them!!

Thanks Linda for hosting and thanks Katie for the awesome printables!!
