One more quick question ... do you want our answers in survey format, since that's how posted the questions, or can they be in any format we want?

Thanks for putting up with all these questions!!

However works best for you is fine for me...some are doing more of a story form, others are doing the survey...

Ok, sounds good!!  One more question and then I promise I'll stop lol ... do you want us to attach the pictures to whatever paper we use, or should we just send them with and you'll put them somewhere else on the 12 by 12 pages?!?

Thanks!!

No worries with the questions, your question might answer someone else's also.
Answer: Whichever way works best for you...I have some cool cropping tools and easy ways to make mattes if you would like me to add a little "something"

Ok, sounds great!!  I'm gonna do my pages this weekend and send it off to you early next week! Cheesy

So, if we bring you pictures Jen, you can crop them or give them backgrounds?Huh?? Do you want just pictures of us or our family too. I would like to include my baby boy!

Thanks for all you are doing, this is so amazing.
Love Angel

You've got it Nikki, you can just bring the pictures (and information) to Franklin (any pictures...you, family, friends...whatever), I will crop them, give them backgrounds, put them on the pages, add embellishments and voila the page is done.
With everyone talking about it...I CAN'T WAIT TO GET THIS GOING...MY SCRAPBOOKING FINGERS ARE ANXIOUS!!!!!!!  banana dance

Ok... I have a question cause I'm confused.  What all do I need to send?  Do I need to get the 2 pages and cute little things to go on it and then just send it all with what I want it to say and you put it together?  I'm confused cause you said we could just email all the info. to you a while back... but we can't email the pages themselves.  Can you help me... I'm blonde... lol.

I understand how you are confused...I planned on providing everything except your pictures and stories (which would be mailed) however some people on this board are scrapbooking pros and asked to put their own pages together (and then mail them to me).

Also in trying to make this project so as many people who want to participate can, I offered to have people who were unable to mail their pictures/notes to me...email them so I can print them out and they can be included.

I hope that clears things up. You do not need to purchase anything. Please send me your pictures, notes, survey and I will take care of any additional "doodads."

btw I keep trying to get blonder...highlights...but my sister won't let me  Cheeky

I have one more question ...

Are all the scrapbook pages you use going to be the same color/pattern?  I was going to buy patterned or colored 8 1/2 by 11 paper tomorrow to write the story and survey on.  I was then going to send those pages and the pictures for you to mount in the 12 by 12 paper, but I want the paper I buy to match what you have ... or at least not clash with it.

Wow, are you sick of me and all my annoying questions yet?  Duh

BTW ... blonde is a great choice for hair color  Thumbs Up

I have lots of paper all in the same theme but slightly different in color so no need to worry about matching perfectly...I have so much paper it isn't even funny...

Oh and actually I like questions...it makes me feel like you guys care about this project... Big hug

Thanks Jen... I've been working on the stuff I want to include and I think I'm almost done.  I'll be emailing it to you soon, I just want to wait to see if any "creative" ideas come to me that I have not included yet.
