I have no idea how much I spent.. I wasn't planning on posting it so I didn't like, keep track.
Don't care though.

LOL, about 0 €. ;) But it took me ages to go through my press cuttings to find the pics of the girls in Finland.

Judes, don't let the dollar amount bother you. I'm not complaining. I was HELLAH excited to put detail and energy into it and the extra cash into it. I don't think anyone else is complaining. It's a voluntary project and people knew the moment they invested in this project they'd (most likely) have to spend a little money on it... how much they spend is up to the individual. And the dollar amount doesn't mean anything... it's the sentimental value of the individual pages that matters! :)

The amount they spend also depends on what their wallets allow! :D

I didn't spenn to much.
Glitter glue (how i love the stuff) - $3 x 2
and I think that's all really, but I did have to get ink for my printer which costs a nice little amount, but I can also say that it was for school more then this.
But the most expensive thing is the shipping $16 from here to there, so it's not that bad I guess.

cd: free, I recycled an old one
sticker: 3.39$
Gliter (that weren't in the final version in the end) 2.26$
Paint: I already had
Printing pictures: 0.60$
Mailing to Judy: I think it was like 2.25$
Time spent on it... a lot, a freaking lot just to find the stickers
so that's 8.50$ not bad

I feel like this is a contest or something :dizzy:
It doesn't really matter what you spent.. it's the thought and the care and love and PASSION that went into it that counts!

No, I didn't... 'cos like... I spent the most and Melanie will love mine more. LOL.

For real...
CD-R = R$ 2.00
CD Label = R$ 7.00 (had two done, just in case, 3.50 each)
Photo printing = R$ 4.00
Pieces of paper, pen, envelope = had them at home, I'd say R$ 2.00 tops
Postage and packing = around R$ 10.00
Total = R$ 25.00, which is around 14.85USD / 7.54GBP.

I spent $0.

I stowed into a delivery truck. Jumped into a box being delivered to Judes' house and claimed one of the projects as my own. :p :death:

uhm I think I spend 6 euros? Can be a little bit more..
I didn't spend that much time on it. Because I was really busy with school and it was all a little bit too much.
