Here is what I made for the swop....

Chipboard from Itsy Bitsy...
DPs were a rack from Banu from way past.... when i had just started.... & am thankfully using them till date... :D
Doily from stash... halved... 
Stamped it with a round & round inkadinkadoo stamp with black versa color...
Brad from stash for an easy locking system... to be hooked by a tag from stash being upcycled here... 
Beneath is a small chip board tag which was a part of a hmmmm... I guess Wrangler Jeans purchased by hubby.... {I love when I use up what I have accumulated from around... }<3 :="" me="" span="">
Die cut the base for sentiment....
Sentiment printed out on to the Die Cut CS.... {The words being just my thought.... Again SO IN LOVE WID SELF}<3 :="" me="" span="">
Used a piece of chipboard to score & crease for an additional tag adhered to the cover of the folio... 
Stamped it with I guess tim holtz stamps... & to hold it down used an animal paper clip of that of a rabbit..... 
Inserted the eyelet & twined in a burlap twine with few hangings from stash... A charm picked from Itsy Bitsy along with a can pull up I ripped off a fanta can.... {Upcycling is so much fun at peace.... Love to ME}<3 :="" b="" me="">



For the inside used up the DPs from RAK....
& CS in white from Fabriano...
And for the Tags.... AGAIN UPCYCLED few garment tags I piled up to stash out.... {So love it when I use up my waste stash}<3 me:="" span="">
That includes few thin CS tags & A cloth tag too which has Lee or Wrangler printed on it... However I labeled a burlap tag on it to cover it smoothly.... {So in Love With ME}<3 :="" br="" ing="" me="">
AND it has the base of a pack of flowers from Prima Rose which I had stashed out & finally got a perfect chance to use it up... I so loved the base with its grungy frames & designed edges..... {OF COURSE Love To Me}<3 :d="" me:="" span="">

Yup I definitely LOVE MYSELF when I appreciate self with my mind acting smart creatively.... :P

And FINALLY as the swop progressed towards its end.... With participants sending out their heartily skilled projects to their respective partners.... And I received mine from My dear Teammate.... Sharada Dilip Acharya.... I textly call her as "SDA" to avoid confusions & save time.... ;)


Isn't that beautiful.... I was so worried 'cuz swops see U receiving some really sad projects in return to your all loved & hard worked craft Projects..... But this was a relief of a fearful sulk I was anticipating.... :P


I so loved the beautiful tags.... M gonna use it up for my niece... My only kid for life... <3 span="">


AND not to forget she even sent me few pieces of lovely beautiful adorable DPs.... Its always a pleasure to receive something you do not have..... :) Am just thankful for this kind gesture Sharada.... Loads of Love & (((Hugs)))

OMG! That was a post full of pictures.... :P NEXT POST IS GONNA turn u bonkers with "N" number of images on board.... So keep a watch!

So that ended up to be a brilliant first swop on ICRSC Season 2.... Second Swop for May 2016 is announced & today is the last date for registration.... If u have not registered & the theme interests YOU in particular... YOU MUST HURRY!!!!
