lucky us!



Yesterday Loopy and I were the recipients of a lovely random act of kindness... the sweetest surprise was waiting for us on our front step! Look at these nifty little broom-style bundles! Whatever could they be? Whoever were they from? We didn't want to open them, they were so pretty!



Inside we found these pretty jars filled with pumpkin spice Hershey Kisses... but the best part was the packaging! Check out the embellished jar! Ooooh, hello craft room desk! The sweet treats were from Jerri-lea over at Girls Glitter 'n Giggles... she is a crafty gal! And kind, too kind. I will make a Thanksgiving cheesecake for Buddy Budderson, it's his favourite meal of the entire year... and he lurrves pumpkin and chocolate. Thanks, Jerri-lea!



Here they are! The photos that London Drugs had taken of Loopy by Branded Images Photography... can we all give a round of applause to our makeup artist from London Drugs, Lisa! Look at Loopy's eyes... they're huge! I need to go back there and get her to show me how she did this again. She had a tricky way of smudging the mascara on. It made a real mess on the edge of her finger but I have never seen mascara look like that in my life!




She gets her braces on soon... these are nice "before" photos to have! Those little chiclets will be soon covered with metal.






It was so much fun to work with our photographer, Robin. So nice for me to be out from behind the camera and let a professional loose on Loopy! I really worked hard at not being too stage-mothery.



One of my faves! With the hair in her face!


Oh, and we took some photos of Loopy over the weekend. We were inspired by Vera Wang. You should drop by and see them tomorrow.

She is just so lovely. You and Loopy are...to quote a good friend..."ad-or-able". I loved the sushi from yesterday.

OMG! Loopy looks so grown up in the first picture. What a knock-out! I think that I may have to visit Lisa and see if she can help make my little squinty eyes look fabulous like Loopy's. (Thanks for the link... I better get something crafty on there quick!)

What beautiful pictures. I think Loopy would look far more stylish than I do on a Vespa. By the way I always wear a head scarf wrapped around my head, big sunnies and capri pants when Im on my bike....not! LOL! Bye for now Mandy X

Her Shabbyness: Sweet 'n Southern said...

She has a great smile! And gorgeous hair! Braces aren't too fun, but, she'll be so, so, thrilled when she gets them off. There was nothing greater than seeing my straight teeth when I got mine off!

Wow! She looks so great (and old). Better watch out for boys! Good thing she has an older brother for protection. :)

Angela said...
