Thanks for asking that because I realized I missed that. When people sign up I will have them tell me and list it at the bottom so we know since everyone does different sizes.

I would like game night (I'm still deciding whether it's board games or video games or all of the above, is that alright?)
And vacation.

Laura,
I do 12x12 and 8x8 so either is fine.

Do we need to send a background page too, or just the embellishments?

Shannon you just send those items listed above. Some people will want a solid color background or pattern. When I normally do these I usually select like a company of paper and go from there but since I am doing a broad topic area with this swap- I am not doing that. So just send the 4 items listed above.

After everyone recieves there it will be interesting to see how everyone puts theirs together as a completed page.

Once I do this swap, I will do a whole 2 page layout kit, and it will be lots of fun too.

Laura,
Thanks for the clarification. I am looking forward to this! I already have some ideas for my cooking together.
If you end up needing an additional person in a group to complete it let me know and I will jump in to help.

Go ahead and sign me up for Group 3 for Game Night.

Let me make sure I've got this right, I will make 3 kits for game night that are identical, right?

Just checking in! I received my twinchies today, and they are awesome!! I went shopping to pick up some paper and supplies for this swap and found some really cute things to use. I may revamp my original plans for this swap to add the embellishments that I ran across today. I am having so much fun!

I think I am going to schedule a scrapbooking day with myself!!! I keep trying to work in a little here and a little there, but I want time to really focus on what I want to do. I do need some advice though...do you ladies like "What's Cooking" or "Homemade Goodness" the best?? I like them both, and will probably incorporate both phrases, but I want to make a title that everyone would like.
