If there was anyway to retrieve it I would. I'm too late. So sorry BethAnn. I don't understand how your box arrived today and mine is still in transit. We mailed our boxes the same day. Strange. I will be scrapping tomorrow and will take photos and see about posting them. You all are going to be so jealous and there are no, I repeat, no bids. Thank you so very much for my awesome box ad book. Can't wait to share.


You are being kind!

Ok, you said no bids, so I am saying DIBS on the box and book sight unseen.

Oh, ho, ho, Keithann,

So I made a little boo, boo. No "bids" is almost the same as" no dibs" and there are definitely "NO DIBS" on box or book. Boy, oh, boy, I really have to watch my step and my "spellcheck" on this board. Really... I'm so sorry to disappoint you. Didn't get to pic's yesterday but will try for tomorrow.

Hi All,

Sumrbrez and I have been texting the last 2 weeks and I gotta say I really wish the forum worked on my cell phone... I'd be keeping up with everyone on a daily basis! I'm going to suggest texting for any future swap partners. It was really fun to chat about your projects for eachother and then move on to other craft related topics.

Unfortunately, Sumrbrez still has no laptop or computer to check in or post. We both received our boxes and I will be taking a minute now to gush over the beautiful peacock box and mini comp she made me. . .

Oh my gosh, ladies..... this box is absolutely beautiful. I love birds and have quite a collection. Peacocks are one of my favorites as blue and green are my favorite colors. The pictures DO NOT do it justice. Trust me. The wow factor when you open the box and see the inside is still there and I've opened quite a few times. Each flap is actually a pocket with a tag hidden inside. I would've NEVER thought of that and cannot wait to try it myself. AND GET THIS....SHE HAND CUT IT!!!!!!!!! WOW!!!

Keithann -- Thanks so much for the "help" on posting pics. I saw it after I kept messing around and finally got something posted without the pics unless you click on it. You're right about taking a deep breath though. I was so frustrated I couldn't think and that was making it harder. After reading your directions, I printed them and put them right next to my pc and laptop so I wouldn't forget. LOL -- now I need to remember that.

Yikes, Bethann, your package has been delivered...

I am like Jean P. in the Fabulous Post Card swap; very, very nervous! Your box is so precise, exact, clean, and beautiful. You will find mine to you too be too bulky and messy. I'm so sorry. I am going to practice making these. I've never been really good with directions. I'm ok but I'm not perfect so I have a lot of work ahead of me. Groan, groan. My son is going to help me transfer photos from my phone to my PC tonight so I can post for everyone to see what an excellent, outstanding job you did. Please don't laugh so much that you get a tummy ache.

Til Later, Carol

WOW !!! Such beautiful boxes and albums !! I am really loving what I have seen so far. Thanks to Cricut Nat, Evelyn, Catita for posting photos ! Golfingrams (Patti) should be receiving hers from me very soon !!

I took a few more pix before I packed it up, so I can put it on my Blog eventually....trying to keep up with everything has not been easy for me lately. I wont bore you all with my "woes"Crying but this month has been a challenge. I apologize for not being on here to post more often.

I really DO want to do another of these as a CHRISTMAS BOX & TAG Set... I think I will add some more specific requirements to the swap so that there are not as many variables in what is expected. Look for the new SWAP to start sometime next week....I want to get this one finished out first.

I love the "pumpkin" topper idea on the one Evelyn made - how clever that is !!

I also love the Peacock blue/green color combo !!

Great job ladies ! I will be back soon to see more pix...Love

Dearest Bethann/

You guessed right. A stands for Anne and it's a long story. I'm so relieved to know you received your box. I believe I mentioned it would be nothing compared to the lovely one you made for me. Mine to you is very messy and not correct. I will do my very best to make your next the correct way.

I was not aware that this message board was going to be down and for the length of time it was. Since I have been able to get back on I can't seem to get into this message board. I'm using my husbands computer right now. I can open Raks and Swaps, go to Exploding Box Swap, click on a page # and I receive a 401 Error Message. Until this AM I could not access Raks and Swaps without getting the 401 message. I could access posts if someone posted however no one has posted under this category. If any one has any suggestions they would be greatly appreciated.

Have A Safe Weekend, Carol

What great boxes, I'm almost ashamed for Barb to get hers. Barb sorry it's so late, it will be there Thursday. Maybe my extra goodies will make up for the box and lateness.

BUT TODAY: Thank you so very very much, my box is awesome and beautiful. What did you use for the base, it's such nice heavy cs. I can't say enough how much I love it. Also thank you for the extra goodies. NO DIBS ON THIS totally awesome and beautiful box and comp book. Just looking at this I have learned and will be making more. I will send pictures tomorrow.

Thank you so much Barb. Hugs Patti

Hi Everyone !! I'm BACK !!!!!!!!!! WOW !! Did I ever have a great time learning from Tim HOltz !! What an awesome teacher he is....Now I see why everybody LOVES him !! Love Love Love Love Love Love Love

So, here is a picture of "MOI" and TH - and the Altered Art "Mixed Media" Canvas we made in class...we got TONS of free "Christmas" gifts from him too - I have to admit I did get a little tired of listening to Christmas music all day in the 90 degree Florida heat ! LOL But, it was worth it !

Ladies, when you get your packages, please post your pix right away because many people tend to forget about it completely unless it is done right away Sad

Are you all ready to start another one of these ? I love making them - and now that we all know how to work this cartridge I would love to be able to tweak it some more ....
I am also thinking maybe we should work our way through this cartridge and make some of the other mini books that are there...what do you think ?
