The Cutest Tilda Bookmark Ever!

....well maybe not ever,
but I think it's pretty darn cute if I do say so myself
and I don't often say things like that about my own work. LOL.
However I have done that now x2 in the past week.
Hummm.....wonder if I am not being so hard or critical of myself????
I don't think I want to explore that avenue.
I am sure all the phychologists would say there is an underlying reason.

Anyway onto my book marker. I was really down in the dumps today and I didn't want to babysit, however it is good for me that I do have Miss V, but I also wanted some "ME" time. I guess I'm a little selfish. Yesterday I was visiting Bee Crafty Blog. She had the cutest little stack of digi books for free download. I just couldn't resist. Once I finished it I realized it also qualifies for the Just Magnolia challenge this week, which is a Magnolia image and embossing. I used the cuttlebug and embossed the layer behind the books, then sanded it. Then I found out it also fit the Paper Play Challenge which was no patterened paper. Who would have thought I could enter so many challenges with one ity bity bookmarker?
Recipe:
Cuddle bug: word folder
Paper: plain cardstock
sandpaper
copic markers
Image: Magnolia
Books: Free Digi Stamp from Bee-Crafty (see link above)

Hi Sally

It is a lovely bookmark and the embossed panel works so well with the books and image.

Lots of other great work on your blog as well.
