Goodies in the Mailbox

Yesterday the postman brought me a little surprise! Well, it wasn't exactly an unexpected package, but the treat inside totally blew me away. This is the collage that Maija made for me as a part of Maria's Marie Antoinette Bits and Pieces Collage Swap that Maija and I participated in. Maria and I were both part of the altered book round robin featured in Stampington's MARIE Magazine currently on the newstands. (FYI - I noticed that some of the Barnes & Noble stores have this magazine in the Arts section of the magazine rack, as opposed to the Craft section where Stampington's magazines are usually located.) Anyway, don't you just love all the fabulous Marie inspired goodies that Maija included on this collage? She used lots of sparkle and bling - my favorite! I can't decide which square I like the most...I love it all!
And now that Maija has opened her collage from me, I can reveal the whole thing to all of you!

Good heavens! Some of it went crooked in the mail! The cake is on a post it dot and it should be manipulated back in place when it's warmed in the sun. Same for the 2 squares on the top right!
It's hot as hell out here in the desert....103 today!
