this is an international tour***(swap)

i was inspired by the film amelie and a very sweet gnome atc i just got, so here goes.....swap-bot style:)

you will complete this swap in two parts,

  1. make a gnome ATC, take its picture somewhere outside in your town and post it here in the forum, then mail it to your partner.

*the ATC must depict where you are in the world in somehow and have a gnome in there.

  1. when your gnome has reached its destination, take another photo outside in its new town and post it here.

please be sure to give a nice caption of where he is so that we can follow his-her travels.

set those little gnomes free!!!!

as always those with ratings of less than 4 need not apply, if you feel you have been rated unfairly please contact me about staying in.

Are we mailing the gnome, or the picture of the gnome?

Cancel that, I reread, we are mailing an ATC of a gnome, correct?

I am confused. The first part-You mail a gnome atc to someone in the swap.

The second part- \"when your gnome has reached its destination, take another photo outside in its new town and post it here\"
Do we take a photo of our gnome with the gnome ATC?

hi panda girl,

its like this make a gnome atc, takie its picture outside in your town before you send it, and the same thing is done when you recieve your gnome atc from your partner:)

dose that make sense? i hope so:)

threesweetpeas 02/26/2007 #

ooh yes the pics are posted here:)

Well, I didn't get the ATC to show where the gnome started off from, but it is in the picture. My apologies in advance to my partner.

peety, u did perfect!!!!!!!! what did you mean, and how cute...oh you mean the atc itself didnt depict where you live, thats ok, your partner can still rate you a 5, i would say:)

swapping is supposed to be fun!!!!

thanks for being in my swap. noel
