My Second Pocket Letter Swap

Today I'd like to share a pocket letter swap with a friend that we actually finished quite some time ago.  There wasn't any theme so I went with a bit of a book theme.  The left pocket of the middle row is actually a handmade mini notebook with a little bookmark in it.  There are also wire bookmarks on the centre pocket and the bottom left pocket.  The sentiment on the middle pocket of the bottom row is a magnetic bookmark too.
The back has a fridge magnet designed to hold notes in the top left pocket and various embellishing elements in many of the other pockets.  I made a plastic tag out of recycled plastic packaging and wrapped washi tape, twine, and ribbon around it.  There is fabric left from the making of my wedding dress in the middle pocket as well as pages from my grandmother's novels wrapped around tea packets in the left hand pockets.
Here is the beautiful pocket letter I received in return from Sunflower Mel.  It features an amazing poppy paper and buckets of gorgeous bling elements.  Of course my pictures aren't doing the bling justice - but, trust me, it shines!  I don't think Mel actually knew that poppies were one of my absolute favorite flowers!!  Color me thrilled :)
Mel also tucked in all of these awesome goodies, a delicious tea, and a great letter.  Thank you so much, Mel, I love everything about it!!
