Reading Takes You Places!


Challenge time again at Your Next Stamp and our DT Hostess Chris has selected Bookmarks
I decided to be "adventurous" and try a corner bookmark even though I haven't been a big fan of them.  I thought they were kind of weird actually.  LOL   But a few of my DT sister have made some really beautiful ones that inspired to at least try it.  I am so glad I did!!!  Okay..... not only are these SUPER easy and SUPER fast to do they are SUPER FUN!!!  LOL  
Easy + Fast + Fun = My Favorite Kind of Project!!
I'll be making more, that's for sure.  My 11 year Step Son, Michael has already claimed it.  I had to beg him actually to please wait until the Glossy Accents had dried before he stuck it into his library book!!  :)

I've used Space Boy and his adorable little alien accessory buddies!!    The moon has been embossed with my Spots & Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder along with a computer generated sentiment.  The Space Boy I popped up with dimensionals and added Glossy Accents to his face shield.  (The photo doesn't really show the shine, but it looks so awesome!!)  Each of his sweet alien friends got a little sparkle with some Stickles.  I thought the Martha Stewart border punch looked like the tail of a rocket, so I thought it was perfect.  LOL

The challenge runs for two weeks, so I hope you'll join us for your chance to win some YNS prizes!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Super cute is just not good enough for this one! It's SUPER DEE DUPER CUTE! Fabulous coloring and love those little aliens!!!

Your embossed circles are so right for this. I just love the way the punched border dots & the spotty paper ties in with the circular motifs inherent in the astronaut & his little friends.
