If I can find the one I want to use (got it for Christmas and seem to have lost it), I think it has 15 pages of regular sketch paper alternating with 15 pages of pretty heavy watercolor paper...I'm probably going to just tear out the regular paper.

That would still give me enough pages to glue 2 together for each spread.

Here's one that they're doing in the UK. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=123382.0

That's just for signups. They will be done soon, and I am eagerly awaiting their gallery!

Thank you! I'll watch them, too!

So are you planning on gluing the pages together yourself, or leave them unglued and let someone else in the ring glue a couple if they want to (or leave them unglued if they want)?

Also... how big is anyone else's book? I'm waffling between a couple I already have or making a new one and I'm stuck on the dimensions.

The one I'm probably going to use is about 10x7 with the spiral on the short side.

I'm not committed to the gluing yet. There is so much to work out!

Mine is 7" by 10". I wanted to keep it a small manageable size because 1) working big scares me, and 2)I want to be able to send it in a large padded envelope. I don't want to mess with boxes!

haven't gotten mine yet - up to 10 baby goats right now - 6 born in the last three days - but do plan on getting it in the next few days. I want to go with watercolor paper too - like working on it. And it will fit a padded envie - so much easier to deal with <G>

I managed to pick up the noxious bug that's going around my office so I might not be as chatty this weekend...

I did find my book and it is 10 inches wide by 7 inches tall with the spiral on the short side. The watercolor paper thats in it is hella thick, so gluing pages together might not be necessary. I'll leave that up to you gals!

Well we are up to 11 baby goats now - hubby went down to the Stock Show without me so I could take care of things here - just took a few more pics - so will have plenty to chose from to make those ATC's rackycoo <G>
