Come join in the fun! This is an October themed kit swap. The following items are needed in this kit (minimum):

2 - 8x8 themed papers of the group you're in
2 - 8x8 matching cardstock
3 - handmade goodies to match the papers
2 - 12" ribbons to coordinate with the papers OR 1 - 24" ribbon
1 - Handmade bling item
The above list are the minimum requirements. You can add more and are encouraged to put your personal touch to your kit. Make it something you would love to receive.

RULES:
1)You must check in at least once a week.
2)Your kit must be FINISHED by 11/20/12.
3)you must post a picture of your kit. Then I'll post on the front page.
4) PM me with your name and address no later than 10/13/12. (If you swapped the past two months, then I should still have it.)
5) I will pm you on 11/23/12 with your pal's name and address. If you haven't completed your kit, by the deadline, you won't be able to swap out. It's not fair for some to be on time while others wait until the last minute and don't get it done in time or forget about it and someone is left out. If everyone has their kits finished or in the process of finishing them, we can swap earlier!
6) Most important, HAVE FUN!!!


Sign ups will be taken until 11/15/2012 but you must have your kit done 11/20/2012. Pals names will go out on the 23rd. This is the day after Thanksgiving, so be careful not to get lost in the holiday shuffle.

Hopefully I got all the dates right....

Ok, I'm keeping it to three themes this month with the holidays coming. The blue topaz will be nice with winter coming as well as being November's birthstone. For the Chrysanthemums, if you want to use the rich colors of fall, you can continue without having to use leaves and such, again, be creative and use your imagination. I liked last month's creativity. For this kit though, please make at least one mum or buy them to include in your kit.

I really love the topics you've got this month...but I'm afraid I'd end up slacking and flake on someone. To be safe, I'm going sit out this one.

I understand, Kris, a lot of swaps going on for the holidays. I'm going to work on my kits right away and get them done and in my cabinet before I lose them this month!

Welcome back, Carol.

I am super excited!!! SO I never really did 8x8 LOs. I started a couple of months ago making a gift for a friend.....now that I have joined this challenge I have gone nuts with the 8x8(funny the bits of the kits I have used so far are on a 12x12 LOL). But I have no books to put them in!

I just saw today that Micheal's has all scrapbooks b1g1 free and a tiered coupon $5 of every $20!! time to go get some books!!! YAY!! (Just thought I'd share hee hee)

I just do 12x12, but I figure I can use the 8x8 kits for the design elements, everything but the b/g. Really looking forward to my first one.

Sally - I didn't post here that I broke my leg and wound up in a skilled nursing center, because I didn't think I'd have to flake. I suddenly looked at today's date, the date for completion and mailing; now I think I'm going to be a huge FLAKE! I've been here since Wednesday, and they say two weeks. That's past the deadline here. Now I need to know what I should do. I have both of my kits partially complete, but it will take some time after I get home to finish them. Do I flake (noooooooooooooo) or send them late?

Let's play it by ear, Carol and see how everyone is doing. I know there's a lot of swaps going on and Thanksgiving is next week already, so we'll see. If you come home and your partner doesn't mind waiting a few more days, then that's cool. Or, I'll be your pal, I don't mind waiting. You do lovely work and it would be worth it.

I went to Jo-Ann's yesterday and picked out my papers for the blue kit. The one paper is really pretty. The paper isn't quite the shade I wanted, but matches. I can't wait to finish that kit with embellishments. It was fun shopping yesterday. I had two 60% and one 40% off coupons and then I got a 20% veteran's discount off my total purchase. Cha-ching! This time though, it was my daughter who spent more than me. I picked up some Modge Podge and some individual card stock and gem stones. I was hoping to find some Christmas themed appliques, but they didn't have any.

Hi Pam, love to have you. The kits are fun.

I'm almost finished with my blue topaz kit. Need to find some ribbons and make one more thing. The one piece of paper, I might just leave it 12x12. It's so pretty.
I made my chrysanthemums, now I have to find papers to match. I picked out my Thanksgiving papers and started on my emellishments.

Wow Sally, your layout is gorgeous! That kit is so pretty and worked perfectly!

Thanks Denielle, I'm hoping to be home midweek next week. If that happens, I should be able to get them finished. Keeping fingers crossed.

Hey Denielle, good to see you back. See Carol, no worries, that's two of us now to fight over who will get your kit!

I went to Jo-Ann's yesterday. I'm going to go broke by 11/21 with their daily doorbusters. They all their wood pieces 40% off and I needed to get some things for a birdhouse I'm doing for an exchange. But I went over to the paper aisle since I forgot to look for paper for the chrysanthemum kit. I found one sheet that matches my flowers I made, perfectly. But I couldn't find another one to match that. I'll have to go check out Michael's tomorrow.

yes Clarisa.. nobody has posted yet. This weekend I'm scrappin'! We're supposed to get snow and I was hoping for one more day so I could cut my grass and put the lawnmower away for the season, but typical of Ohio weather, it was in the 60's yesterday and snow in the forecast for today.

Yay, Carol. I bet you're glad to be home.

I'm sorry, I signed up for too many swaps this month.. But, I'm done. I'll be dropping everything off at the post office in a couple of hours. Then some time later today, I'll be setting up the next swap.. Christmas!!! I love it! I'll just be doing two kits since most of us will be busy with the holidays.

And I finally found the memory card to the camera.. My daughter always manages to "borrow" the camera when I need it. I went to my sister's on Thanksgiving w/o the memory card, so I didn't get any pictures this year and my sister took one picture. But I'm going to do a lo anyway w/o pics because there's a lot I'm grateful for.

Clarisa, did you ever get a picture of your kit?

I have the front page updated. Luckily, I took pictures of mine when the sun was out over the weekend. The past two days, it's been raining and they say the temp is supposed to start dropping again. It was 60 today and this will probably be it until next year. waaaaa..

Yay! I told you I got you something last month and then I couldn't find it... I do that all the time.

I got a kit from you today, Toni, but I haven't opened it. I was busy then I started scrapbooking. I was thinking today was Sunday and I had to do my Round Robin layout for Monday. Then I liked the way it turned out and three more pictures in this group and decided to do a two page lo. I'm just about finished with it.

And I'm glad you like your mum kit, Carol. It started one way and took off in another direction. I couldn't match papers the way I wanted. I had started my kits before all the troubles started with my daughter and then put them aside for a couple of weeks.
