My fellow scrappers: we all share the love and passion of crafting,creating, shopping, scrapping, card making, swapping, and challenges. Why not share your "stash" items, creativity and expertise with each other...a R.A.K. package.

R.A.K.:RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS.
In scrappy land, this is a package or prize of scrapbook goodies.

When somebody does something nice for you, you feel inspired to do the same for others. It really does feels good to GIVE or DO something for somebody else; and it definitely feels great to RECEIVE things too...like a kid at Christmas, or a scrapper at a sale. The anticipation is exciting!!!

So how do you feel right now, just reading this post??? Cheerful? Giving?? Excited??? WELL, this swap is for you. Sign-up and join the fun!

RULES & REQUIREMENTS:
1. Sign-up & send the hostess your address by 3-30-12.
2. Hostess will pm you a secret sister name & address on 3/17/12
3. Each scrapper will build a R.A.K. package consisting of scrap goodies, but do not go over $45. But of course all of it can be bought, just depends on the scrapper. Some ladies have a talent for making unique stuff.
4. You must check into the forum at least once a week so the hostess knows you are still participating.
5. You can take pics of your goodies as you gather them but you must post a completed picture of your package by 4-22-12.
6. You will have the entire month to gather and mail your goodies to your secret sister. Packages must be in your secret sister hands by 4-30-12. No exceptions!!!
7. I strongly suggest delivery confirmation to ensure pkg was mailed out on time & it was delivered to the recipient.
8. Above all things,this swap is intended to be fun and stress free so please stay within your budget. You know you financial limit so please don't overextend yourself.
9. Remember, this package is a SURPRISE!!! No spoilers but teasing is allowed.
10. Lastly, if this swap is a success, we will do it again this summer.

Sounds like fun, I'll think about it!

Will you have us each fill out a survey about things we like, favorite techniques, topics we scrap and topics we definitely don't scrap?
