Hi ladies! I am totally copying PrincessNancy96 on this :thumbsup2 (she knows it--I guess that makes it ok!). She is going to host the LAND swap, and I am hosting the RIDE swap.

Here are the details:

Due date is July 20th (that is when I need to receive your package). I will wait one week for stragglers/mail delays and then I will mail out the packages.

1. Choose an MK Ride or Attraction.
2. Select an element--make 12 of that element for your ride! :sunny:
3. PM me with your DIS name, "real" name, and address so I can pre-address the return envelopes.
4. Post your weekly status on the Progress thread which will be posted after the swaps are filled.
5. Check the progress thread for your status--it will be updated with send/receive info.
6. See the progress thread for packing/mailing instructions.
7. PM me if you have problems and need to drop out or if an emergency happens (we all know that sometimes life just gets in the way :rolleyes: ). That way, we can have someone "angel" if we need to.
8. There will be 12 people per group--once a group fills up, I will add another group, but there will not be more than 5 groups total. I will be in and out on the board today, so I will open 3 groups to start--please make sure you check the people above you to see what they have signed up for! :teeth:
9. HAVE FUN! That's what these are for! :Pinkbounc

Now for the fun stuff!

I would like brads...I saw really cute castle ones...would that be considered a ride? Let me check and see if there are others more ride like.

ETA: I just found these really cute Lalique Tags that attach with brads. They are not specifically for a ride, but are really cool embellishments. Would theses be okay with brads? It says they make great tags with
rub-ons. http://www.bargainpack.com/Stanislaus/LaliqueOval12x18/pink.jpg http://www.bargainpack.com/Stanislaus/LaliqueOval19x25/red.jpg
They come in many colors, I would go with Disney colors! Let me know what y'all think!

One more thought: I like these stick on brads. Again, not ride specific, but really cute.http://www.bargainpack.com/EKSuccess/Disney/July/mickeystickybrads.jpg

Ok, I think I've got everyone signed up to this point! I had to switch groups with some in order to get everyone the element they wanted, but I think I've got it worked out. Let me know if I did not get something down right! :teeth:

I'd like to do group 2, two tags with a Teacup theme, if a spot is still available there. Also, could I do group 3, library pocket and tag with a Splash Mountain theme. (These will be done by my 2 DDs who have been jealous of mommy getting all the neat swap stuff in the mail--with me checking them very carefully before mailing--if that is okay.)

LOL! We have to ride it too!!! The line was horrible one day so the kids didn't want to ride it.. than when we went back to it the storm came in and they shut it down... DS5 (4 at the time) kept asking me why they didn't take Dumbo off his rails and take him in out of the storm! :confused3 I offered him and ice cream cone instead of trying to explain the whole mechanics of trying to take Dumbo in for the night!

My motivation is simple - I go to WDW in 24 days, and I want to do my own scrapbook when I get back - so I gotta knock out my July swaps before I go!

Next is the Land swap - all planned, just not done.
