For my God-Daughter's Baptism

My God-Daughter was recently baptized and I wanted something REALLY special for her. She is 7 years old and LOVES Hello Kitty. So...of course I had to come up with something unique that she would love and appreciate. Hope you like too.

Not your ordinary "gift basket"!!!!

This is a recent design that I created for a friend to give to her First Lady as a "We Love You" gift basket. I was given full design rights to create this "gift basket" for them. I was truly inspired and went all the way OUT OF THE BASKET on this one. Enjoy
