So, I took a bunch of pictures this morning because I'm going to pack everything up that we have so far and move it to the basement for storage. My FI and I are going to Europe for the month of September, and I need to switch focus from wedding stuff to trip stuff (as promised!). All of our written/printed materials will be winter projects I think...but I'm just glad I started shopping early to catch "warm weather stuff" while it's in season/on clearance.
These little photo albums were $2.99 at Superstore and are covered in woven straw. We'll keep the plastic covers on until they go into the bags, but you get the idea. You can put a little photo in the front cover...which we'll do...and use the book for our welcome letter, maps, schedules, photo sharing info, etc.
My FI's daughter will be turning 17 the day we arrive in Mexico (Jan 29/12). Her OOT bag will include a pretty beach towel with her name embroidered on it (Homesense $14.99) and a water bottle (Superstore $1.94):
The flower girls will be getting a towel with their name embroidered (Homesense $14.99), a small water bottle (Superstore $1.44), a terry cover-up with their name embroidered...or "flower girl" perhaps (Target $9.99) as well as a Timex watch (Target $14.99). These are their thank-you gifts as well:
These will go into the flower girls' bags...the foam disk and jumping ropes were on clearance at Superstore, and the deck of cards are from Dollarama ($1):
Something extra for the nephews...foam disk (Superstore clearance) and cards from Dollarama:
I'm going to put the rest of the pics in another post...just in case I screw this up!
