I love seeing those packages and scrapbooks! So inspiring.

Hawk left on Friday for the trip back to Oregon. She should arrive this Tuesday. The ducks here all miss her.

Stella is back home, and brought all sorts of goodies with her! Alexampersandra spoiled us!

First, of course, the scrapbook! Here are a few of my favorite pages, and the maps Stella brought home!







We also got all kinds of goodies! Flip flops (perfect size!), a little notepad, a coozie, baseball bat pen, magnet, a GORGEOUS bracelet, and Stella's carrying bag!



In addition to all of that, candy!! We already ate a ton of the salt water taffy, and I'm so intrigued by the prickly pear candy!



Thank you, Alex! Stella had a wonderful time with you! Smiley

I'm so glad the flip flops fit! Total guess.

I don't think I've ever sent an LV home without Forbes taffy... it's a Virginia Beach tradition. (And I always go get myself a pick-n-mix bag of taffy while I'm there, so I've been eating a lot of taffy myself!  Grin )

So much excitement since I've been gone!  There's too much to comment on individually, but it's so fun seeing the LVs come home.  Alby's scrapbook puts mine to shame for sure.  I was hurried to finish it and didn't have much creativity in me that day.  I felt kind of bad for it being so plain, but it's better than not sending one at all, right?  Right?

Almost forgot:  I am up for another swap whenever it happens.  It felt so strange not to be whipping Tree out for photos last week.  Wink

Same here... There was a tree down from the storm and I went to take a picture and thought, "Where's Stella? ...oh right."

Hawk arrived home this week from her visit with zcrafter. She came with some fun ephemera regarding groundhog day. Her scrap book is full of photos and notes on what was going on. (The whole scrap book thing is beyond me. It's one of those things I have not bee able to wrap my brain around. I loved her solution using the sleeves for holding images.) She brought a cute notepad, some Shakespeare-themed bookmarks, groundhog stickers, a great coloring book of Pennsylvania wildlife and a bird book with art! Yay! Thank you so much for hosting Hawk this round. Cheesy

Aurora made it home safely today!  I'm leaving again tomorrow, but I will be back on Sunday and will post pics when I return.

Artsycandice, I know what you mean about the scrapbook.  Mine was anemic to say the least.   Undecided I really like zcrafter's solution of just using page protectors so the pages can be put in any binder.  I think I might request that format in the next round so that I can keep all of Aurora's travels in one book.

Tree got home safe and sound last week. However, I am currently sucking at this whole adult thing, so I am just now getting photos up. Big fat apologies to my awesome partner who literally made my kiddos day.

My daughter is in first grade, and when I signed up, my partner agreed to tailor the whole box for her. This was all part of my goal to get her to learn more about other places. So here we go!

Box opening...


And happy to see Tree in her new skirt!


Very carefully reading the card. She read it all by herself with no help.  Cheesy


One of two things that tied for her favorite in the box, a tie-dye tee. She LOVES tie dye and wore it the next day to "show all her friends".


Her other fave thing was a kinder surprise egg. There is no picture of the egg because she INHALED it, but here was the toy inside.


The awesome album. It has sooo many cool pictures and brochures from everywhere she went. I am super jealous Tree got to see Chihuly glass.



Eamea also shared her favorite book from her childhood (so sweet!! <3 ) as well as a bag made from fabric she picked up in Egypt.


Tree was lucky enough to have the opportunity to sit with a master portrait artist, Eamea's niece.


She also got a new wardrobe. The St. Louis Blue shirt was a funny surprise. Three years ago, my husband went to St. Louis and watched them play. It is the only pro hockey game he has ever been to. We still ahve his souvenier cup from the game.  Cheesy We also got a magnet from Scotland. Tree got to go to friggen SCOTLAND!!!


Lola also got a button up shirt turned apron (cool!) and a new pillowcase just for camping.


I think it is safe to say we got a great partner, and both Little Visitors had a great time. Smiley
