Back to School Bookmark

*** Please scroll down for my Shelly’s Images GDT post. ***

It’s Thursday so it is time for the new Meljen’s Designs release and the new challenge. Melissa is releasing the cutest back to school images this week on Whimsy Stamps. And…. they work perfectly with the new “Back 2 School” challenge.

Once again my daughter was looking for a bookmark. If you have followed my blog for awhile, you might remember that I have already made her several. I don’t know what she does with them! I will make her a new one (she even made herself one) and she will use it for a week or so. Next thing I know there is a Kleenex sticking out of her book again. What’s a mom to do?

I made another book mark but this time I make one of my own design. I made it a bit bigger than usual (approx. 3-1/2” x 5-1/2” finished size) and slips over the corner of the page to help keep her place. Maybe it will be too big to lose?

I was able to use up some scrap paper when I made this. In fact, everything on the book mark except the image and the stickers, were scraps. Woo hoo, I cleaned out a little bit of my stash.

Please stop by the Meljen’s Designs blog to see the creations from the rest of the DT. Our challenge this week is “Back 2 School”. I hope you will join in and link up your back to school themed projects.

Thank you for stopping by!
