HOP-A-LONG with bookplates!

This is definitely a first for me!  A BLOGHOP  that is hahaha!  Its all about the ~BOOKPLATES~ , aren't they pretty?  Why don't you hop along the list and see all the different ways of using them?  There is to be a prize draw of all the comments that are left on all the blogs too!  Got to be worth following the trail!  Here is my take...



I sprayed mine with Dylusions along with the background.  The stamps are part of a set by Oxford Impressions.  Having a circus set is new for me....clowns give me the creeps!!!!  But there are plenty of other delicious & very useful stamps in the set and a good price too :D  The bookplate has been sprayed with dylusions in 3 different colours.  The chippie can take all that wet too!!!  Then glossy accents added on top.

You should have come from the ~TANDO CREATIVE BLOG~ to get to me but if you didn't know about the blog hop why not carry on? 

-The next to visit is the lovely Irits blog ~HERE!~  -

Enjoy your hopping :D and thank you for popping in, HUGS xxx

Clowns give me the creeps too Karen.

Its a nice shape to decorate and would look nice the other way too - landscape if you like...

What are bookplates used for? I have no idea, so you know what... i'm going to google it. That's all I ever say these days if someone asks me something I can't answer... 'google it'... what would we do without the internet or computers (we wouldn't have crafting blogs for starters and that would be the biggest shame!!!)

Big hugs
