New Participant: You will have to make a mini handmade journal with a minimum of 10 pages (max. size is 5x7, around 2 - 3 ounces) that will be sent to your partner. Make sure your name, username and address is on the last page so it can be returned to you when it is full.

This book is going to be used for MIXED MEDIA so please make sure that your book is made of a sturdy paper that can hold up to some beating.

You can decorate the first spread of pages (please use a previous swap's prompt) if you choose, but it's not mandatory.

Returning Participant: Decorate and send out your mini-book from the last round (#8 theme was: Quotes. Remember, the journal GOING OUT in this round should have the color prompt).

When you receive your mini-book from your partner in this round, you will be required to complete one (1) full page spread based on the prompt given. Don't forget to add your username, date and country to your layout somewhere. You will then hold on to the book until the next partner is assigned and send it to them.

When the book is full you will need to return the book back to it's original owner.

PROMPT: Spring. For most of us (I think), spring is right around the corner, or upon us right now! Anything having to do with spring: the way it makes you feel, rain, sun, holidays (like Easter), flowers, or go out on a limb and think of actual springs - you know, those bounce-y things? Remember: this prompt will go in the book you RECEIVE this round!!

Rating: if you receive a book from your partner with one full spread decorated (one left side, one right side) in a reasonable amount of time, please rate a 5. Only rate a 1 if you did not receive anything.

Rating is set at 4.9. I will check profiles and I reserve the right to ban anyone I consider a risk. No newbies and no recent unexplained 1s or 3s.

Please comment below with the owner's name of the journal you currently have. It would be nice to know if our journals are still in rotation and where they are :) Thanks!

I am so sorry, but theme "Quotes". Quotes in meaning hooks or citation?

kim91262 04/23/2014 #

"Quotes" can be ANYTHING you want it to be that uses words. It can be a saying - something you say to your kids all the time, or a literary quote out of a book or a commercial jingle! just fancy up the words on the page with some art!
