    I got a little note from my SS today in the mail with a really cute Jolee's By You patriotic banner!!! Just a little note to introduce herself, which was very nice!

    Thank you SS! I think the Jolee's will look so cute on a card...already cooking some ideas up!

    This is fun!

    BTW -- for my person.....I am pretty sure I have already bought July and Augusts stuff!!! I am having way too much fun shopping!!!

    At first I had no idea where to begin buying sb supplies for a "stranger." Then I went to the LSS & all of a sudden it hit me. I now have goodies for July & August, too!

    I've bought lots of things that I hope my SS will like. This is way to much fun. As someone said earlier one for my SS and one for me.

    If our DHs only knew (LOL) Hey they have their own toys too!

    THANK YOU SS! I've been meaning to post here for a couple of days now, but I haven't been home (long story) long enough to do too much. Anyhoo.... Last week I got a pacakge from my SS --felt like it was Christmas in June!!!

    She really went above and beyond -- I received alot of things that I had never seen before & was in scrapping Heaven. Here's the lowdown: a pacakage of blue button ups, cm pooh combo pack, Rebecca Sower tag, 3d floral page border stickers, a castle laser cut/diecut, a sheet of karen foster stickers and several sheets of karen foster paper. The paper and stickers fit perfectly into my wedding album that I'm working on -- they were white daisies & that was the theme of our wedding. I think there may have been 1 or 2 other things, but I am drawing a blank, so I will apologize to my SS for not remembering!

    Also received a couple "secret" emails from her. This swap was a great idea! Talk to you all soon :p

    I know you can't tell me 'cuz its secret....but wouldnt it be too funny if you were my SS.......this is why

    When I read your post above, your countdown clock caught my eye!!! You must be going to WDW 10/18??? Your clock says the exact same time as me! Too funny!!! Looks like we'll be in the World at the same time?

    Where are you staying? We are at BCV from 10/21-10/26....we actually arrive on 10/18 and I am trying to decide where we stay as I type. I have ressies at Contemporary thru SOG for cheap! (DH is USAF) or ressies at AKL at discount (but not cheap) thru the Stars and Stripes discount! DH and I are dying to do AKL Concierge and the SunRise Safari! Decisions, Decisions!!!!

    On a SS note - I will be packing my stuff up soon too for my SS! We have company coming early/mid July so I need to get cracking on preparing for that....dig out spare rooms, etc!

    I found an envelope of scrapbooking goodies in my mailbox today :)! Where do I begin? I've been looking through my new goodies over & over again as I have different ideas where to use each item :). I received:

    * lollipop letters that spell out DESTINATION RELAXATION; on our last trip to WDW last month my sister was with us at OKW & enjoyed the resort because it was so relaxing; guess where those letters are going :)?

    *four squares in a variety of shades of my favorite color - blue; I can think of several pages where they could find a home;

    *some larger squares with scenes done in what looks like water colors - summer, relaxing colors - light blues, greens, yellopws; two of the scenes have a mama duck & her ducklings - reminds me of one of my favorite Caldecott picture books - Make Way for Ducklings;

    *Sandylion alphabet stickers - some of the hearts look like Mickey heads - ok, so I'm into Disney :)!

    *a strip of cute, silvery, shiny stickers of Minnie & Daisy;

    *Merry Christmas border with holly leaves & berries - I love Christmas!

    *two SHOTZ photography collection borders - colorful, spring tulips & autumn leaves - great photography;

    *two silver metal frames - I can foresee using these in my scrapbooks of my childhood years - they look like they will be good with school pictures;

    *and a variety of papers, some scraps - don't laugh :) - I asked for some scraps as a way to increase the variety of paper I have to choose from - flowers like white wedding flowers; red & white plaid; paper that looks like corrugated cardboard - I'm not familiar with it, but I can foresee using it :); 8.5"x11" sheets of colorred vellum paper.

    Thank you to the person who sent my package. I appreciate the time & effort it took to put together a package for someone you don't know - been there, done that :)!

    BTW I mailed a package out last week.
