1st Annual Tag Swap

This week I hosted my first annual tag swap!

Myself and eight scrappy friends created 9 tags each to share with each other.

Here's my tags all ready to swap.

Of course we had drinks and some nibbles then got down to the business of exchanging tags.

A bit of baking.

Yum, taco dip!

And here's the scrappy friends, from left to right, Joanne, Regan, Deanna, Jeannie.

Dianne and Avril.

And now for the tags!

Here's Avril's using a a felt snowflake as the tag base, so so creative!

Jeannie's fresh, clean take on her tag, unfortunately the lovely shimmery ribbon Jeannie choose doesn't show well in the pic :( , love the embossing!

Kathryn's Santa tag, so totally cute!

A closer look at one of my tags, gotta love Melissa Frances glittered chipboard.

Brenda's tag on a tag and isn't the glittered paper lovely?

Dianne's house mouse ornament tag, who can resist house mouse, not me!

Regan's holly and bells tag, love it!

Deanna's tag that opens, love the choice of red, blue and glitter!

Joanne's cute stamped, coloured and glittered tag, so sweet!

We all really enjoyed sharing how we created our tags with each one being so individual and creative. Hopefully we can get together and swap tags again next year!
