The One with the Sassafras Mystery Box and a Giveaway!!!

I'm a frequent visitor to the Two Peas in the Bucket message boards. And a few weeks ago the Peas were excited about the Sassafras mystery box sale. Now I have bought into mystery boxes in the past-only to be disappointed.{I'm looking at you Pink Paislee...}
Here's the deal with mystery boxes, you have to really like that particular manufacturer and you have to be okay with the fact that the lines you'll be getting aren't their most recent.
Now, I love Sassafras, but find them to be a wee bit expensive at my local scrapbook store. I think their Monstrosity line is one of my all time favorites and I recently scored their entire Bungle Jungle collection super cheap at Micheals.
So, I was on the fence. To buy the box or not buy the box. It seemed like a great deal $49 shipped for $215 worth of product-and I knew I would probably be happy with 80% of the products. And I had the money in my paypal account from some eBay sales. So I caved.
And within a week it arrived:
Yeah, that's a lot of stuff! Holy smokes. Was I happy to open that box!! Wowzers. You want to see close ups, don't you?
Here's the Felties {love these}:
And the vintage brooches-2 blue, a pink, and a yellow:
Whimsies, seriously, I've been wanting these so much but they were $3.99 a pack at my LSS!!:
Entwined Blossoms-in Tender Green and Yellow-already know what I am doing with these!:
Two wee bundles-Count Me In and Mix and Mend:
And 10 Alphas and Count Me In stickers. Oh, how I love alphas, I shouted for joy when I saw these. My son came downstairs to check on me:
And the paper packs, each has 4-6 sheets of double sided paper, a border sticker sheet, journal stickers, and accent stickers. One also came with another set of alphas. (Score!) I got Cherry Delicious, Mix & Mend, Count Me In, Nerdy Bird, and Indie Girl.
Whew! So much stuff! I can't wait to play with it this weekend!

Now for the giveaway. I put together this cute little bundle for my blog readers:
