Tag! You're It!

Welcome to Imaginisce's Gift Tags Blog Hop.  Hopefully, you've hopped on over from Lydia's blog.  Aren't her tags precious?  LOVE all that Happy Camper goodness.

For my gift tag set, I decided to make bookmarks for my two boys and myself.  These bookmarks are to celebrate the gift of reading.  We are participating in our local library's Summer Reading Program and going on two road trips, so we plan to do a good bit of reading.  Next week, I'm going to put these bookmarks in a new book that I am buying for each of my kiddos to take on our first road trip.

Along with various Imaginisce lines, I used Echo Park's Dots and Stripes Metropolitan Collection.  The colors were just perfect.  And I loved all the stickers available.  What a great combination!


This bookmark is for my oldest son.  For it, I used Imaginisce's Happy Camper line.  I am so in love with the fun colors in this line.  And that little hot air balloon seemed the perfect accent for a bookmark.  Reading is such a journey!


This next one is for me.  To add a little girly flair, I used Imaginisce's Berrylicious collection.  LOVE those strawberries.  And besides, isn't reading sweet?  LOL


Last but not least, is my youngest's bookmark.  Since he is just four, I decided to use Let's Roll, an older Imaginisce line full of cars, trucks, trains, and planes.  He will LOVE the bright colors.

Ok, then, that's all I've got for you today!  But next on your hop is the very talented Sophia.  Trust me, you do not want to miss her sweet tags.  Oh, and if you finish the entire hop, leaving comments along the way, you might just win yourself a FABULOUS prize:  a selection of Imaginisce Happy Camper Papers, a Selection of Echo Park Papers and a set of Spellbinders Nestabilities.

Happy hopping!
