Here are some pics of Ellie all packed and ready to go (looking very happy until i stuffed her in a small bubble mailer).
And showing her passport, and luggage. I didn't want her to get bored on the trip so she was sent with snacks, her favourite books, a little friend, and a picture of her puppy...
Can't wait for gina to get here for some exploring...
So I'm a deadbeat and have not posted photos of gina yet...
gina and I have been quite busy exploring Ottawa and getting ready for our trip to Disney World ( ) next week that all the photos are still trapped on the cameras... I will say that photos will be posted soon, but that may be an empty threat
Still a deadbeat with no photos posted... we leave for Florida at 6am tomorrow morning and I just finished my dress for the wedding an hour ago (and I don't think it turned out that well... gina's is lovely though)
We'll be gone until Sunday so it will be sometime next week before I get caught up with everything and get pictures posted.
gina is getting a little homesick (although she is excited about spending Canada Day here (she heard rumors of beavertails, jazz music and fireworks)), so she wanted to make catpants a card.
We will post some pictures once it is decided which ones are going in the album (so there aren't too many repeats).
Ellie came home late last week, and I am finally done enough writing (silly school work), that I am ready to post pictures. I'll apologize right off the bat for the pic overload but catpants was such an awesome host, that I just couldn't narrow it down any farther.
First of all everything all together: Catpants sent a reusable pad (I'm very excited, my husband wasn't so sure about it as he pulled it out of the package, with a "This is for you!"), Some Chai to try (I haven't had it yet, but it looks good), a pin, a little sketch book, a new necklace for Ellie, a candy (very tasty), and a charm from one of their adventures.
Ellie's new necklace (so funny story, my husband was sitting in the living room reading on Friday and I went to go talk to him, and there he was sitting with Ellie, and Sprocket (our stuffed puppy) and sprocket was wearing a blue plastic beaded necklace I have, and my husband said that Sprocket saw it and wanted to be pretty just like Ellie...)
Ellie's new sketch book from her trip.
The neat little charm from catpants and Ellie's trip to The National Sanctuary of Our Sorrowful Mother.
Now on to the awesome scrap book.
The label from inside the album.
And some of my favourite pages.
Ellie Learned how to ride a bike while she was gone (thanks for teaching her catpants).
At the Craft Magazine launch Party (how cool is that).
With some very cool trees.
Braving traffic to see the Joan of Arc Statue (one of Ellie's visiting request). Thank you so much for taking her there catpants, she is really excited about having made it there (and about everything else too).
At Stumptown Coffee.
I would happily post all the pages (cause catpants did an awesome job), but I'm sure that would get way too long.
Thank you so much for everything catpants. Ellie had a greattime, and we were so excited to travel to Portland vicariously through her (someday I want to see everything for myself, but for now I will just enjoy the pictures and study the transit schedules and maps).
