Sorry it took me so long to find the gallery and scan the books. Sometimes I really hate not having a digital camera.  Undecided

Here is the book I sent to kirbay831. The cover was nothing special, so I didn't scan it.
All the writing is from Timmy's perspective. I hope you can read my handwriting!










So there you have it.

I was so excited when Loki came home! My brother was there when I opened the envelope and he just kept telling me how crazy I am. Kirby really did an amazing job on the book and took Loki to much cooler places than I managed. The book is made "accordion style", with all the pages connected.
Here is the book she made. (Note: "I" refers to Loki. This confused every single person I showed the book to. Silly relatives!)
I really love the letter beads! (Front cover)



You really have to look closely to find Loki in this picture, but he's there. (Oh, he's a blue parrot.)


Gnomes from around the world!



I keep forgetting to ask what abseiling is. Is it anything like rappelling?


This is the gorgeous back cover.

Some lovely postcards Kirby included. It cracks me up that the wood chipping facility was put on a postcard!

Not pictured: Loki's outfit, which is adorable. He has a name necklace that matches the letters on the cover!
                   A cutie koala friend holding an Australian flag
                   Stickers with the Australian flag.
                   A nifty keychain that spins! One side has a koala and the other has a kangaroo. My brother said that it would be cool if it made a supercreature when you spin it. I thought you all would find that amusing.

Well, I suppose you've heard enough from me. I really loved this swap and seeing everyone else's pictures. Thank you soooo much americandemokracy! Whew, I know it was a lot of work to manage the lot of us.
