A Tasty Read Bookmark


WOW, it's been FOREVER since I've shared with you a project using an Elisabeth Bell Digital image.  And since the Boss Lady was so sweet to me for my birthday, I got to work right away making a new project.  For my image I've used A Tasty Read, isn't she adorable?!?!  If you haven't seen Elisabeth's exclusive digital collection, you can take take a peek at them HERE.  

Since I really had so much fun making my last corner bookmark, I decided to make one for myself.  Reading is my first love and it's something I've not had a lot of time for lately with two toddlers running around.  I really miss it.  But now that I have a cute little bookmark...I think it's the perfect excuse to make a little me time.  Now I just need to find a good book.  Any recommendations? 

My family had TONS of fun over the weekend.  We visited a petting farm, carved pumpkins and of course trick or treating!!  I hope to share some photos with you later this week.

Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit today!!

Super cute Wendy. I just love these little bookmarks. I have a Nook now though, and dont read many paper books. It spoils you, I love how convenient it is! Anyways, an AWESOME series was "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" there are 2 books. The first 100 pages of the first book and not good, but once you get past that, excellent!

Wendy, this is so adorable. That image is cute as can be and you've colored her beautifully. Love the papers and the pieced hat is so cute. Love it!

I love that you've coloured the apple green rather than red - the whole creation is lovely & thanks for reminding me about the Digi Bells Blog - somehow it got lost in my transfer from PC to MAC - now rectified & I'm back Following.

Hi Wendy

Congratulations on your bookmark. This is such a beautiful project and the papers and your colouring are perfect. I often wanted to make such a bookmark but never find the time or had another "excuse" but looking now at yours, I definitely want to make one. :-) Thank you so much for your inspiration!

BIG hugs and have a nice day!
Pati

What an amazing bookmark!! I have some store purchased ones, but still tend to use receipts! You've put me to shame. I love the image and papers - and the corner theme. Lovely!
I recently read Sarah's Key and could not put it down (although it also sickened me - you'll understand if you read it). I recommend it though.

Oh...my...GOODNESS....that is THE sweetest bookmark. GREAT mix of papers and I LOVE the stamp!

Danderella said...

Gorgeous! I love all the distressing, and that you used only "part" of the image...sometimes I think we forget that we don't have to show the whole thing. Love it.

Kate said...

Back again... Just want to say that I'm thinking of you and hoping that all is well in your part of this world. Perhaps you are reading some great books and making good use of your gorgeous bookmark.

What a gorgeous bookmark! I'd never seen a corner bookmark before but I've lloked at the tutorial and I'll be having a go at some of these for Christmas gifts. Thank you for a lovely trip round your blog.
