    I also did my shopping, and I have a prototype for one of my pieces, working on another prototype today.

    and I sent my PM, sorry I forgot about that.

    The colors are red, blue, and metaclic gold. I think the elements are:
    1. Topper
    2. Jouranl Box or Quote
    3. Any other from a long list

    The swap mistress sent out a update she would be on vacation and we haven't heard from her since. I think she is due back soon.

    On the original thread, I think it was Hopemax who posted this link for an example of one of the 50th Anniv. logos that has an example of the colors:

    http://lorrypatton.com/final/2005-0...disney2-350.jpg

    And, also on the original thread, this was the list of elements provided by our hostess:

    <<"A. You will create a topper or border with your word embellished
    b. 1 journal box or quotation using word, or 1 Matted Poem or song Lyric using word (double matted and embellished, stickers, stamps, ribbon etc)
    c. an embellishment which can be: 2 vertical borders, 4 Embellished squares - (double matted) 4 per person, 1 Frame - (embellished) see note above for journal box, 1 photo mat, 1 tag, 1 Slide Mounts, 1 Box n Tag - (1 of each- Above rules apply),1 mini file folder, 1 library pocket and tag, 1 Shaker Box, 1 Paper Piecing or anything else you may think of and agree on by majority.">>

    After MyLittlePiglet posted about the scrapbook kit she picked up, I remembered I had one too. I took the stickers and such to my local scrapbook shop (which happens to be the one owned by the Bazzil people, benifits of living in the Phoenix area.) and spent a bunch of time looking at the paper shades of the Bazzill paper. I came home with Blue (NOT Bazzill Blue, it is just called "Blue") and "Watermelon," both of these are in the Canvas textures, and then a couple of sheets of metallic gold.

    Heys guys... look like you answered the questions intended for me among yourselves. Good Job!!! My computer has been funky and have had little time to access site from work.

    Hope everyone is doing well. If you haven't checked in already please send an update so we know you are still thing of us ;)

    JennyL I saw on another thread somewhere you bought a ton of scrapbook stuff in Disney. Me too sort of. What did you buy?

    I really had to be carefully that I did not over spend on scrapbooking. Did well on that but spend way to much on other people's sovenirs sp

    Hmm lets see I bought Tinkerbell, Minnie and Castle punches. I then bought the Happiest Celebration on Earth, 2006 and one other kit I can't remember right now. LOL I also bought the small alphabet books, mickey and minnie snaps, and extra Happiest Celebration stickers. I think thats about it.

    I was lucky since the only other souveniers I bought was a pickle ornament in Germany, new salt-n-pepper shakers and a Chinese soup spoon from Japan. So those weren't that expensive.

    I too got the aplhabet book. My DH noticed thought that each alphabet only has 2 capital M's therefore if you write Mickey Mouse your m's are gone. So funny I didn't even notice that and he was still complaining about it on our trip!! He used to like my scrapbooks, but not care much about putting them together..... between and ABC disney album and you guys my husband is totally into helping me now.... which is good and bad we have totally different styles. I am trying to get him to do a swap. we will see after I get my first few done what he thinks.

    Hopemax.... Forgot before you rock for being all done. You go girl!!! :banana: :banana: :banana:

    Guess that means the rest of us should get moving ;)

    I have run out of adhesive so frantically contacting the CM rep I use :rotfl2: I am not quite sure she understands :confused3

    Just wondering if anyone knows the title of the Disneyland 50th Anniversary book that has the chapters with the names of the themes we are using in this swap? Someone referred to it when we were trying to come up with theme ideas. I thought it would be an interesting book to order!

    As for an update......I know what I'm doing with my elements. I will be working on them after I'm finished with my June and part of my July swaps.

    Thanks!
