    I just wanted to let my sender know my gift had arrived safe & to say thank you :)

    Me again, just nipping on to say sorry to my sender.

    I've had a bit of a crazy weekend & haven't been able to get on the Dis over the weekend. I promise to try and post a photo tomorrow of my gift.

    Apologies again

    Finally...I've arrived in front of my laptop! Phew...as I said previously, a huge sorry to my sender that I've not posted sooner...but here they are, my lovely Halloween gifts...

    Before opening...which was difficult with the fab paper!
    <a href="http://s305.beta.photobucket.com/user/Rach066/library/" target="_blank"><img src="http://i305.photobucket.com/albums/nn235/Rach066/DSCF0858.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"/></a>

    Then we got brave and we got....ta-daaaa!! (Complete with Samantha's baby shawl, as we couldn't get the effect of the candle-holder without a white background, lol!)
    <a href="http://s305.beta.photobucket.com/user/Rach066/library/" target="_blank"><img src="http://i305.photobucket.com/albums/nn235/Rach066/DSCF0860.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"/></a>

    And a close up of the little bits...
    <a href="http://s305.beta.photobucket.com/user/Rach066/library/" target="_blank"><img src="http://i305.photobucket.com/albums/nn235/Rach066/DSCF0862.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"/></a>

    I got a Franken-Goofy (he's a popular one this exchange!), a candle holder with hidden Mickey's, a lovely brooch, all Autumn colours and some lovely chocolates...which didn't last too long!

    Again, I'd like to say sorry for not posting sooner, life's got in the way and all that. But a big thank-you to my sender, I shall be using the candle holder in my new bay window on Wednesday evening :goodvibes

    Sadly there has been a mishap with Paula's gift, where it looks like mice have got into it and ruined it where it was stored at the couriers :( Paula's sender is in the process of sorting it out, but it may take a little time

    :( What a shame for Paula and her sender. Everyone puts such effort in their gifts and to have one ruined is horrible.

    You'd think mail depots would keep and eye out for mice!!! Hope the couriers sort out a refund and compensation ASAP. Xxx

    Some fantastic Halloween stuff there ...wish I knew where people find such amazing gifts to send. I thought for a moment that Claire had received a laptop as part of her Halloween surprise !!

    I used my cake cases this weekend - sorry I forgot to take a picture but they did look funny because the kids wanted fairy cakes with icing and sprinkles and I put them in the Halloween skull cake cases. :)
