Let's say there are 10 people in your CJ group. Each person has a CJ that you mail. Everyone in your group will do a LO. Eventually, you get your CJ back complete with all 10 LOs.

ScrapBrat--you could do it that way: make blank LOs for the owner to journal and scrap. OR, you could give your group members a topic and have them journal and scrap about it....so you would be getting their thoughts and whatnot on your topic. You send to and receive from the same person each time. I always send to Tamara and Marygail always sends to me.

Happy Birthday, Deb! Saw the cake next to your name!


Okay I was good on the CJ's until you posted that you Tamara and one other always do each others. Can you explain that to me?

No hon, depending on the number of people in the group is if you do a double or single page thread si what I think they mean. I am understanding it to mean that if there is a gorup of 6 people then it would be a double page but if there is 12 in the group then a single page.

Is this right?

Now this brings me to another question---I have heard of people making their own CJ's so does the hostess determine whether it is a single or double page layout that will be done by everyone so when people make their own books they can accomodate for the amount of layouts each person in the group needs to do?

No, not necessarily pictures, hon. It depends on the theme the recipient wants done. If you go back to page 2, I believe, there is a huge list of themes someone responded with. I think a lot of those themes, there wouldn't be a picture involved.

Every CJ that I get, Marygail sends to me. When I am done adding my layout to that person's CJ, I always send to Tamara. It's easier to keep track of CJs when you always send to the same person. Sorry if I confused you!

Is this right? It is up to the owner of the CJ how many pages per layout they want you to do. In the group that I'm in, there are 10 people. I wanted everyone to do 1 two-page LO. So, that's what everyone is doing. Another lady, gave us a choice between doing 1 page or 2 pages for our LOs in her book.

Now this brings me to another question---I have heard of people making their own CJ's so does the hostess determine whether it is a single or double page layout that will be done by everyone so when people make their own books they can accomodate for the amount of layouts each person in the group needs to do?
The owner, not the hostess, determines how many pages each member does in the CJ. As the owner, it is your duty to make sure that there are enough pages in your CJ for everyone to do their layouts.

Okay, so I read the article, and I am still not exactly sure how it works. I am going to say what I think it is, if I am wrong, please correct me... From what I understand, there is a group of people participating, and basically you send it to each one, each person adds a page and passes it along. Okay, what I don't understand is this... How many are there, is it just one, if so, who keeps it when it is finished? Or, does everone make one and then when it finishes the circle, everyone keeps thier own. I would think it would be the second, but then that means you are doing a lot of pages for other people. I guess it all depends on what timeframe you are expected to complete it, hmm, am I missing something? Again, these are just assumptions, so if I am wrong about how it works, please tell me


So everyone has their own album?? That's where I get confused.

Yep, looks like I'll have to. I have interest here as well as on the general scrapbooking section of the site. I will have to sit down with my calendar and look to see when and write everything in a rough draft first so no mistakes will occur.

Everyone who has posted that you would be willing to join one to try it like your newbie hostess here (moi), I will be posting one in a week or so. I am going to rough draft it on paper first with dates etc. Then I am going to blog all of the themes that I have gotten in PM's and on the threads. This will help everyone to get a better understanding of themes for you to choose or to help spin an idea from one of them. I will also be writing everyone's usernames down to PM everyone who has shown an interest in one so that I can PM everyone with the link once it is posted.

Thank you to everyone here who has helped me to understand it all.
