An "extra" ir icon is a small element (about 2") that fits the theme of the words. So it should take no more time than doing a 2" letter. Here is a picture of the Harry Potter letters last time with the bolt being the extra.




And for this swap we were doing the word Disney World and I had the letter S and an extra/icon. (Sorry this picture is small, but it should give you an idea!)

Thanks for all the addresses in my PMs and for those who have checked their groups. I'll be updating post 3 with the responses in the next day or two and getting back to you with my address, etc. We have guests tonight and tomorrow I have 10 teens here for a party/sleepover!

However I will be checking in for questions, so I won't be totally gone.

I downloaded the font Harry P from dafonts.com. It's a free font. Good for those of us who are not tied to only using Cricut cartridges. Just thought I'd share my find.

vgrandy, I was just looking at another swap that is now complete CHARACTER ICON SWAP. Go check out the slideshow in the first post...I think every single one of these could be an example of an "extra" 2 inch icon. Does this help?

OK, so I am back to the living. Please remind to NEVER EVER host two teenage sleepover parties and one family dinner in one week. That made for 5 days of, well..., ok lots of fun but lots of stress. And top that off with a summer cold and no sleep.

But I did have time to go out and find some fun new paper for some of my groups.

Traci --- you just made EVERYONE wish they were in the Sea World group! And your HP pieces are great. I love how natural the scarf looks on the R.

Posting an update. I have finished my Space and dolphin groups. I have cut out my embellishments for my HP group and I am almost through with my fish group. This is my main focus until time to sort the altered paper clip swap.

I've bought some paper, but not all that I will need. I think. Chances are, I could pull the rest of what I need from my stash, but where's the fun in that?! Finishing up the Disneyland swap today and then on to this one. Not many groups, so should go quickly.
