kylie76 rated for Rainbow Swap on Aug 14, 2008
Comment: So sorry it's taken me so long to rate this! Oh my goodness, it was perfect! The package arrived just as we were leaving for our trip to Australia and I was able to use the bag as a holder for our passports and the Starbursts (which we used for the plane ride). The disk was our travel music throughout our driving around Australia, too. LOVED IT ALL! (I wish I could give you more hearts than just one!)
Response: It was really fun putting it together. I'm glad that you got it before your trip, I was worried that it was taking too long to get to you but thats awesome that it came to Austrailia with you!
