Blog Hop at Isabella's Sketchbook

Hi friends.. Today we're having a circular blog hop at Isabella's Sketchbook.... our very first blog hop. A 'circular' hop means you get to start wherever you would like (it's new to me too!). If you go through the entire hop to check out all of the lovely projects the design team has put together, you will wind up right back here with me.  All of us are using this fabulous design that Isabella created just for the hop.  I think you will find it amazing to see how one image can be used in so many different ways as evidenced by the talented design team.



I chose to create a clean and simple card.. and paper pieced the basket of lemons, as well as used several coats of  Crystal Lacquer on the lemons themselves for a dimensional look. This darling image is now available at Isabella's shop.

Have fun and enjoy the hop! Your next stop on the hop is Peri... talk about one VERY talented lady. We are so pleased to have her at Isabella's team. 

Make sure you keep hopping along and leave comments along the way. The more comments you leave, the more chances you have of winning.  Our challenge continues until Friday, July 2nd at 8:00 EST and winners will be announced on Saturday, July 3rd. There will be 9 winners chosen from comments left during the hop. Each of the nine winners will receive 1 free Isabella image. How cool is that?

Today's challenges:

Delightful Sketches - It's all about summer
Digi Doodles - Anything goes


Thanks so much for stopping by.. have a fantastic day.  See you manana!!
