Scraptastic Swap Check-In

If you participated in the last Scraptastic Swap please take a minute to let the board know what your status is.  There are a few loose ends and we don't want anyone to have a bad swap experience!

1.  If you haven't given your partner her swap item, please be considerate and complete it for the October meeting.  If you're unable to, let your partner or the board know.

2.  If you haven't received a swap item, please let us know. We want to make sure everyone who made an item receives something!  If need be, we will find Angels to fill in!

Thank you!
