Hit the Books

Good day, I hope that you  had a wonderful weekend.
This week over on the StampFairy challenge we are heading back to school.

It was never uncommon for me to have my nose in a book as a child, in fact I still love to get lost in a book but these days most of my reading is done electronically. I do have two nieces that have picked up this love of reading though and I am sure that a bookmark or two will come in handy.


I have chosen to work with this great image from the Lenny back to School collection. I have used a simple packaging tag as the base to add some stability and used some paper scraps to accent the image and make it pop. To finish it off I threaded some floss through the whole at the top and braided it to make the tassel.

I hope that you will join us this week. I look forward to seeing your back to school projects.

This will be entered into the following challenges:
