My First Bookmark!

I really can't believe that these are the first bookmarks I've made. It's always been on my "to do" list but never got round to it, however, Sam received a special book for Christmas from my Sister which has a story for every day of the year in it and he decided that he needed a bookmark for it. So that meant I had to make two so Lewis wouldn't be left out!



Stamps: Magnolia

Colouring: Promarkers

Papers: Scraps of My Minds Eye and K & Co

Extras: Jumbo Eyelets SU, Ribbon Hobbycraft, SU Punch


The boys were really pleased with them but have one more to make now as a friend popped in to see me when I was in the middle of making them and said "Ooh, I want one!"

The boys are back to school on Tuesday, so am hoping to be able to catch up on my blogging then. Have a good evening!

Oh Jo those are just adorable!!!!!! I know they loved them that is for sure. My granddaughter loves to read and has so many books that would make a nice gift for her or even to let her make it. She loves playing with my stamps lol
