People's preferences:

JoyousBohemian:
size: no real preference.
theme or color scheme: just no really silly stuff, please.  I'm open to most anything, as long as it's respectful!
thickness: go wild!

lisateacher:
size: creator's choice
theme or color scheme: nope!
thickness:

crafty_dame:
size: variety is great, though probably not too small - so maybe at least 1 side at least 4"? (ie, not as small as an atc or anything!)
theme or color scheme: nope! i generally like dark images, but i'm cool with a more vintagey style as well
thickness: i'm super cool with thickness, and tend to have issues doing "paper only" - i MUST add other stuff! how does everyone feel about thickness?

the_trademarks:
size: 6" by 6", I really want them to be all the same size
theme or color scheme: Nothing that comes to mind. I just want it to be pretty and not creepy.
thickness: whatever thickness people want to make.

neverseenblue:
size: 4x6 or 6x6 would be fine I think a variety would be fun
theme or color scheme: I dont have any particular themes in mind, but as for color I really like brown/green, brown/blue combinations.
thickness: Thickness is not a problem for me.

squirrelgirl:
size: I like that 6x6 size
theme or color scheme: my family is Hispanic so any Mexican influences or themes would be nice.
thickness: different thicknesses are okay

OMG I KNOW.  The picture that I'm using is about 18x24 inches, so I have to haul it to Staples or Kinko's to get it scanned in.  It's OLD.  I'm EXCITED.  (Hence the capslock!)

oh, that's very exciting!

i haven't decided which picture to use yet, but i'm sure it'll be black and/sepia toned.

a few things i've been thinking about (especially since i've been stalking round 1!)
- make sure you scan at a decent level so that we can get a good quality print!
- tell us about the person you scanned! who are they? what did they like? make it up if you have to! Wink
- we didn't mention preferences for thickness... i'm super cool with thickness, and tend to have issues doing "paper only" - i MUST add other stuff! how does everyone feel about thickness?

I'm excited too! Cheesy
I'll have to look over some pictures and scan them over the weekend!

I'm with you on thickness, craftydame! I think the swap could be so much more fun if we worked with non-paper items as well as paper items!
