Gosh! Sorry I haven't been on much...life has just been so crazy busy! I guess it's just summertime. Friday I went all day to our state fair with my mom and a couple of her friends....
Then today Wy and I spent all day at Vallyfair, a local amusement park:
Not a lot of time for crafting...but I did fit in a little bit! Wanna see....? =D
It's that time of year again...all the kiddies are headed back to school. In honor of that occurrence, Tiddly Inks challenged us to create a bookmark. Now, I've never created a bookmark before, so I was kind of excited. I've been seeing a lot of corner bookmarks around Blogland in the past few months, and I've always wanted to try making one. So, I decided to find a fun tutorial and try it out. (The tutorial I found is here on Split Coast Stampers.)
And here's a close-up of just the bookmark:
I used the adorable Schoolgirl and Extras, colored with Copics, Spica markers and STICKLES! =D The sentiment on the side of the book says "Never judge a book by its cover." I think that's good advice for everyone, but especially the kids. Sometimes at a young age it's too easy to go along with the group and make snap judgments about other people...I thought this would be a nice little reminder to give everyone a chance. =D
Well, I'm pretty happy with how this turned out. (Trust me, the skirt looks much better IRL. LOL) I'm really excited that I tried this, and I can't wait to make another one.
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by! We'll see you soon!
