I love backgrounds, making them and using them. On ccswaps there is a background swap, where we make 10 backgrounds of the same backgrounds on 1/2 sheets of paper (5-1/2" x 8-1/2"), put the instructions on the back, send to the hostess and receive 10 different backgrounds in return. What a great deal! Plus we can sign up THREE times, as long as we send in 3 completely different sets of 10 backgrounds. I had lots of messy fun yesterday afternoon & evening. You can see what I choose to do below. Have fun, make your own backgrounds & get messy!!!!
