Prop Swap

A part of the Med Club experience at the TAC Seminar is the prop swap. Since I've never been to Seminar and Club Med I wasn't quite sure what to make. The gist of it is to make something that wasn't a card to swap. Once you arrive at Club Med you hand over your prop in bag and then when it's time to swap the lovely TAC helpers deliver a different bag to you. If you get your own back to you they will switch it out with a different one. Then we will all open our gifts at the same time. I must say that there are some very creative and talented ladies out there! I was a tad embarrassed when I saw all the amazing swaps but now I have a better idea what to make if I am blessed to be able to go again.

So what did I swap? I made a fun 4"x6" Bind-it-All Scrapbook. Everything used to make the scrapbook were from TAC. I love the quirky and eye-catching designs of the papers. Not to mention the ribbons and embellishments. I also used the some more of the matching papers and ribbon to alter the gift bag. WHAT FUN!!! :-) I received a really cool altered wooden jewelry box from Sandy. I would include a picture of it but it's currently packed away in my suitcase. (I am still in the midst of traveling and everything is in my suitcase or carry-on.) I didn't think to snap a picture of it before I packed it. I'll get it posted as soon as I have a chance.

Here are the photos that I did get at the Club Med prop swap.
