The SPRING COFFEE LOVERS' HOP...

...C/- the lovely AMY TSURUTA. It's HUGE.
See  all the info & links HERE
I made some lovely scrappy friends last time around. 
The sponsors are great.
And most of all you get to celebrate COFFEE. or TEA or HOT CHOCCIE. 
Or all 3!!
Thanks to VICKIE Y [who I met from last time around], I managed to create some of my own BOKEH paper from plain watercolour paper!
She explained how to do it & I was thrilled with the result.
I took photos, so if you're interested, let me know & I'll do a step by step of MY interpretation!
Can you see my bokeh effect? The little charms were a RAK from Sue McB in Viccy. 
Aren't they SWEET???
Had to draw a circle for my stamping.....then had to add  twine to COVER said circle:)
 I was soooo happy with this. Hard to believe it was simply cream water colour board, eh???
Thanks for looking & happy hopping ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
PS: I'm aware we're heading into autumn....but we can PRETEND, right??!!!
