Default Demo Kit sets - opinions?

I'm finally signing up to be a SU demo - woo hoo! I will be doing a lot of scrapbooking workshops. Here are the sets I have chosen - what do you all think? I'm on the fence with some of them:

Greetings Galore
Itty Bitty Backgrounds
Fresh Fillers (instead of Quick Thinking)
Much Appreciated

Instead of Heartfelt Thanks, which of these do think I should get:

Looks Like Spring
Simply Said (with Scatter Sunshine Wheel)
Bodacious Bouquet (with Bodacious Wheel)
It's Your Birthday

Instead of Loads of Love, which one of these should I get:

Warm Words
Be Happy
Curvy Verses

The Stampin Memories Add-On:

Not sure how hip I am on the Best Friends Alphabet - was thinking of going with Typeset instead, and the Linen Album in Mellow Moss.

I'm stuck on the colors of ink pads - which ones should I choose? Thanks for your help!

I adore Warm Words! I haven't done any scrapbooking yet, though. It's Your Birthday is the only set in that list that I have and I use it all the time - for cards. What ink colors do you have right now? I use Chocolate Chip, Bashful Blue, Old Olive, Tempting Turquoise, and Real Red the most lately, but that comes and goes.
Have fun whatever you decide!

I am getting ready to sign. I have most of the stamp pads so I am going to get all of the new colors.

I would get Bodacious Bouquet 'cause it's new and there are some amazing samples on this site. Many of your potential customers (if they're familiar with SU) will likely have or have used the top 2 sets.

I'd get Be Happy or Warm Words. New and lots of fun!

Depends what colours you have! Chocolate Chip is a must otherwise I'd get a nice rainbow of colours (except yellows --> markers are better for those) HTH!

Bodacious just arrived on my doorstep!! Love it. Also, if you are going to scrapbook, have you thought about Wild About You??

I love fresh fillers and have sold several sets. I also have to say that I love Looks Like Spring. It is probably my favorite set! It is fairly versatile too!

You will have to work it into your commission.

It was too hard to choose, so I just got the recommended colors. I already have Chocolate Chip and all the pastels, so it works out.

And I really do want that Looks Like Spring set! I'm getting that set and the punches with my first workshop order.

I'm not sure you can substitute a Jumbo wheel for the regular sized one (Scatter Sunshine and the Bodacious one are both Jumbo) - you might want to check with your demo/soon-to-be-upline on that.

You've picked some great sets! Have fun when your new kit arrives - it's like Christmas!

I opted out of Heartfelt Thanks too. Tough choice between Looks Like Spring and Simply Said though.

Congratulations on becoming a new demo! Be sure to sign up for the demo forums - lots of helpful stuff there.

I picked all different sets in my kit and ended up buying the ones they recommended later anyway! I found out that it doesn't matter what you pick - you're just gonna want more!
