Tag Along With Some Crackle

Hello all!  I've got another exciting post today...  I'm absolutely delighted to be a guest host at Tag Along and the theme I've chosen to challenge you all with is Crackle (okay, no huge surprises there!).  Because it's summer, and people are coming and going from holidays, you'll have a whole fortnight to play rather than the usual week.


I'm just sharing a sneak peek of my Crackle tag today.  You can see the whole thing over at Tag Along to inspire you, and I'll be back in a few days with the making-of details.




If you'd like to take me up on the challenge, all you have to do is create a tag which involves some form of crackle - whether that's stamping or stencilling or a glaze or a paste or good old glue-crackle or indeed any other crackle you can come up with - post it on your blog, and leave a comment over at Tag Along which includes a link to your post.

I do hope you'll be able to come and play Crackle with me at Tag Along this fortnight!

It is a happy talent to know how to play.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

I'm also putting in a special guest appearance at Anything But Cute this week... and there's lots of crackle going on there too.  Do check out my magic potion bottles if you missed them.
