    I've seen references to these -- and photos of pages in some -- and I get the general idea that it is circulated . . . other than that, :confused3

    Would someone please fill me in?

    Thanks so much! :thumbsup2

    There's a good explanation in GrayFal's thread here: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=906861

    You're right, basically they're circulated in a set order. Usually once a month you mail the journal you just finished to the same person & yours returns after the last person finishes - hence the circle. Topics vary, but the ones here are usually Disney topics like favorite character, favorite ride, favorite memory, etc, etc.

    It's a great way to get to know others from the board & to see scrapping techniques & styles you may not use yourself. There were many things I'd seen in photos (like on 2Peas) that I thought I "understood" but when I finally saw them in person it was much easier to understand.

    Thanks for the explanation -- sounds like a cool project. I'll have to keep my eyes open for the next open sign-up.

    Which I'm hoping will be soon because although I'm in one now, I have an idea for my next book.
