A Bookmark For My Daughter

I am so happy that my daughter loves to read. She is going through books this summer like crazy. Her latest craze is the "Little House on the Prairie" books.



A few months ago, she was looking over my shoulder when I was blurfing (blog surfing) and saw that some one had made her daughter a book mark. She has been asking me for one ever since. Luckily, the Meljen's Designs challenge this week is to make a book mark or tag. I had to take this opportunity to make her a personalized book mark.









Here is a look at the clip I used on the back. I bought a package book mark clips a while ago with the intent of using them to make her a book mark but had not had the time to use them. (They are from Jewelry Shoppe Findings purchased from Hobby Lobby for $1.99 for 2.)






Here is a close up of the cute little sunflower from Meljen's that I paper pieced. It was sprayed with Glimmer Mist even though it does not show up in the photo.








Here is a peek at the entire new release. Remember you can buy individually or as a set.



I hope you will join in the Meljen's Designs Challenge to create a book mark or tag. Remember you do not need to you a Meljen's image to participate. Stop by the challenge blog to see the creations from the other DT members.

Edit: Also, Meljen's Designs is moving to Whimsy Stamps. You will be able to purchase your Meljen's images HERE. All new images will be at Whimsy and Melissa is busy moving all the old ones over there too. Older images will still be in the old shop during the transition.


Thank you for looking!

This is adorable Cheryl! Love the clip idea too. I'm an avid reader and can't tell you how many times one of the 'slick' bookmarks have fallen out and lost my page. I'll have to look for these the next time I'm out to the craft store. :)
