*Welcome to the Secret Sisters Swap!
Rosita and I will be co-hosting this swap again~and it to be so much fun each and every round!

RULES/GUIDELINES:

1. In order to join this swap, you must have 1000 posts or be a sister with us already in good standing, or have another swap member that will vouch for you. If you don't have these things, contact Rosita or myself and we will decide. We want new people to sign up and have fun in our swap, but since this is a 25.00 minimum, we have to make sure everyone who participates will complete the swap! Thank you for understanding!

2. This swap will begin on April 1st, 2011.

3. When sign-ups are closed (March 29),
Rosita and I will send each participant the name and information of your LITTLE sister sometimes on the 30th. For the exact time, see Rosita

4. This swap has a MINIMUM of $25.00. You are required to spend at least that amount EACH month on your swap partner for three months NOT INCLUDING SHIPPING COSTS!

5. You would not put your name on the package/envie so you will remain a secret. It's a good idea to use a family members name as the return address, a trusted neighbor, or you can put your hubby to good use and use his name! You can also order directly from sb.com and tell them that the gift is for a secret sister swap and they will block out your name and information for you.

6. You can look up your partners profile to get some ideas of what to send. They have also been instructed to update their wish list.

7. You MUST check into this thread AT LEAST once a week as your real self and once a week as your alternate secret sister ID. Communication is vital in this swap because the purpose of this swap is to get to know your fellow swappers! You'll get more out of this swap the more you post, and your ss can get more ideas as to what to send you.

8. Secret sisters will end on June 15, 2011...you should reveal who you are to your sister on that date here on this thread.

9. Never hesitate to pm Rosita or me if you have any questions, or need to know something specific from your SS. Rosita and I are here to help you!

10. Please mail your RAKS/gifts/cards out no later than: April 10, May 10, and June 10th. That should give the package time to arrive before end of the month.

11. Have fun, chat, share lo's, anything goes in this thread!

12. You must have at least 1000 posts in order to sign up. If you have fewer than that, Rosita and I will need to pre-approve you joining. If you have flaked on this swap or not followed the rules before, don't bother signing up.

13. To sign up, send me a PM with this information:
Screen Name
Name
Address
Email address
Phone number
Birthday
Do you collect anything?
Favorite snack
List of things you would like to receive (as an addition/alternative to things your wishlist which you will keep updated).
Are you willing to send to an international sis this round???

Secret Sister Basics:

1) Create an additional ID to log on to sb.com (so you can communicate with your ss on the thread and send PMs, etc.)You do have to contact your sister on this thread AT LEAST once a WEEK (preferably more!) A good idea is to post when you mail out a package and "tease" them about some of the goodies included!

2) Send a card. (a snail mail card or an e-card are always great to receive!)

3) Type a letter or note to your sis. Be sneaky and devious.

4) Remember, it doesn't have to be scrap stuff only but should include some scrap stuff too!

*****Also, I must reiterate: DO NOT SIGN UP for this swap unless you are prepared to make a commitment to it. People have had their feelings hurt in the last swap, and I do not want to see that happen again. If something happens during the swap that affects your ability to keep participating, please contact Rosita or myself...we both just want EVERYONE to enjoy this swap, get to know each other, and enjoy spoiling someone and getting spoiled in return!

I hope this round goes as well as the last ones have because we have just had a blast the entire time! Feel free to talk, laugh, cry, share, and especially spoil your little sis!

First Challenge
Rebecca's Challenge

Okay here is the March Challenge ~

For those of you who are new or returning after a bit of time away. The winner will be chosen by random drawing on April 1rst and will win a small RAK from me. The winner of the challenge also becomes the hostess of the April challenge!!

CHALLENGE FROM SCRAPBRARIAN:

Here's the new challenge for this month along with the guidelines;

LO must be new as of Monday 3-7-2011
One entry per person
Deadline is Thursday March 31st
LO's only this time, no cards or altered projects
Your LO can be one of your CJ pages

LO must include something from your stash that you've had for more than a year, go ahead use that special pp or embellie you've been saving for the perfect page!

Lo must also feature a technique you rarely use or one that you are trying for the first time!

As always have fun with it!



CHALLENGE #2
From Deb-doodles
For the challenge:

Your page can be any theme, colors, etc. You only have to use 'Glimmer Mist' or some other spray type of ink on your page. You can use just a misting technique, BUT, if you use a stencil I will put your name in the drawing twice. (Pink I saw you buy some and know you haven't used them. LOL)

If you don't have a store bought stencil you can make your own out of chipboard, paper, etc. You can do a simple design like a circle or star if you want. there's no excuse saying you don't have any stencils!!

These will be due on the last day of April. I will draw a name from the participants and send them a
RAK from my stash and they will be the next challenge hostess.

Hi again Kimberly, Thanks for your quick PM response yesterday... and thank you so much for allowing me to join your sister swap, even though I am new. Don't worry, I won't let anyone down! This kind of swap is new to me and I am sooo sooo excited about it. And for me, nothing beats gift giving. I'm the person who's favorite gift is watching someone open a thoughtful gift I gave. Oh, and that shopping for SB stuff doesnt hurt either!!! I can't wait to meet everyone in the swap! Thanks again for allowing me in with a welcome!!! ~amy

Awe, thanks so very much for your kind welcome Jackie, Suzi & Rosita.

I was honestly worried I would not be accepted since I don't have many posts... but I am an honest person, 100% flake free! I work from home as a project manager on Odesk, so I know how it can be hard to trust people online sometimes.

I totally LOVE scrapbooking just as much as you all, I am sure! During the past few years, my boys have grown and I started to move away from making traditional L.O.s and have recently found that I really enjoy pushing the limits of paper doing projects like cards, tags, altered art, handmade gifts, mini albums, handmade flowers and so forth!

I am really excited to get to know you all and make some new lifelong scrapbook friends. You ladies all have a great night! ~amy

OK... don't mind the MESS... we are going to clean it ALL out, paint the room pink and then I get to move ALL my goodies into this room! I can't wait!!

I know that I'm gonna remove the desk under the window... but I can't decide if to keep the shelves around the window.... what do you think????

Morning girls! TGIF! I'm spending the weekend at my aunt's house and we're going to a crop tomorrow. My aunt does ZERO scrapping so I'm sure it will be more of a social event than a productive one, but it will still be fun to get away for a day or so.

One entry per person
Deadline is Thursday March 31st
LO's only this time, no cards or altered projects
Your LO can be one of your CJ pages

LO must include something from your stash that you've had for more than a year, go ahead use that special pp or embellie you've been saving for the perfect page!

Lo must also feature a technique you rarely use or one that you are trying for the first time!

As always have fun with it!





I'm definitely going to have a go at this, Rebecca!

Despite all I said, I see Alda and Christine are here and our old friend Jessica, and new people too....I'm being tempted to join and I have to resist!

Like Katrina and Rebecca, I can be part of this without having to worry about posting parcels when I should be panicking about dresses and hairstyles and music and bridesmaids flowers!

Rachel~you can most definitely be here without doing the ss thing! I know I would be very sad if you weren't here!

Christine~we would love to have you. I'll put the months on the title to make it easier to see but it will run april, May, and June...we would love to see you back!

Welcome to Amy and Tina! I am so glad that new people are signing up!

Katrina~we would love to have you but I totally understand finances. I hope you still pop in to talk with us all the time!

Rebecca~I am in for your challenge. I did it already...just need to add a picture...it's a circle journal page for Katrina. I tried new stuff or stuff I don't usually do...it looked like [email protected], so I removed the stuff I hated and now I like it! Your challenge is only to TRY new stuff, correct? Besides the using old supplies, which was very hard since I don't have any old supplies since I am always using them all up!

Everyone else...so glad you are joining and I'm going to update the front page right now!

Love ya girls!
Kimberly

Great to see Jessica and Alda (I'm only at the bottom of page 1 at the moment!) and although I'm not partaking in the swap cos my wedding is happening in four months, of course I still want to be part of the fun!



My dear Rachel ... if not partaking you MUST be a cheerleader here ... The stories you are going to be able to share during the preparation will make us smile and release your stress!

So here it is. The old are the stamps I've had forever. I have quite a collection and rarely use. The new technique is the embossing. I've tried it on a few cards but have been too scared to put on a lo and ruin it.
Fun with Brandon By Tinadn

Good morning ladies! Happy first day of spring!

Alda I've heard soo much about you and your wonderfulness from the others I can't wait to get to know you a bit more!

Tina wouldn't be the same without you!

Rebecca what fabulous pages! Must go leave love!

Kelly what a horrible way to wake up in the morning! And I thought it was bad-I got up this morning, put on my favorite pair of jeans and thought I felt a bit more air in places than usual, feel down there and yup giant hole courtesy of that scallywag of a puppy!

It is cloudy and nasty, muddy, sopping wet, and we still have about a foot of snow in some areas, but the winter boots have been put away and it is flip flops from now on!

It was fun! We taught the 2yo how to do the time warp ( that was before the alcohol), Made our own diet coke fountain with Mentos, and then had way to much rum and schnapps. But it was fun Yesterday was supposed to be a sewing day, but my friends turned it into a fis tracis house day. THe installed my new dishwasher, Cleaned up my backyard and started pulling weeds. THen we BBq'd braughts, Made another Diet coke fountain, and sat around the fire. It was a good day.
