swaps and has anyone seen my camera?

Well, I was going to take some pictures
of what's growing in my yard right now--
some gorgeous iris and peonies, wild rose
and honeysuckle--
but the camera has gone missing . . .

SO you only get these--they're basically tags,
but they're going to be bookmarks for a
swap at the Gingersnap Creations yahoo group.
They're supposed to have a single travel theme,
and since I have some France-ish stamps, well,
that's where we went with these! You know, it's
hard to think "flat" sometimes--these couldn't
be chunky, since they're bookmarks. Also, now
I think they need a little something, so will add
some ribbons and beads or suchwhat sprouting
from the top. Okay, yes, tulle, it will be tulle,
for two reasons:

1. Tulle makes me think of clothing or hats, and
Paris is (I hear) a fashionable spot, PLUS
2. As you may know, almost everything I make right
now has tulle or netting on it!

These bookmarks are also great for these fun
challenges; stop by and check them out if you
need a little weekend inspiration.
Paper Romance--anything but a card
Pixie Dust Studio--vintage
The Rubber Cafe--vintage tag or card
Shelly's Images--anything goes
My Mum's Craft Shop--anything but square
A Gem of a Challenge--Aqua, Lemon, and Pink
Challenge Up Your Life--recycling (the backgrounds are a
collage of old ephemera)
Pattie's Creations--no, no, NO cards!
Polka Doodles--anything but a card
Totally Papercrafts--Don't be a square

Happy Weekend, everyone!

I did want to see more detail so I did click on the pic! They're great! I love the vibrant colours, the textured background and the rough edging. Very cool bookmarks. Please show us when you've added your sprouting bits!

Now where did you last see your camera......?

Call me naive or perhaps oblivious, but I didn't even realise there were swaps for "grown ups"! The first I even heard of swaps was when the little cabbages and I did a kids' ATC swap this spring. Maybe I neeed to get out on the internet more? LOL. Your bookmarks and tags are lovely. And thanks for having popped over to my giveaway and for your question. I'll answer them all when I post the winner.
