I love to read

I am 4 books deep into the Outlander Series and I've lost my faithful bookmark - given that my previous book travelled with me everywhere, to appointments, in the car, camping - you name it, it went everywhere - so my bookmark could be anywhere!!

Fast forward to now - and I've made myself a new one.  This one has a cute image from Some Odd Girl, which I coloured with my Copics.  Then I layered her on strips of patterned paper and a 3-in-1 word ring and clothes tag from Tanya Leigh Designz.  There's also some doodling, a kitty sticky note, die cut heart and a ticket.

I finished off my new bookmark with some sparkly red cardstock, some bling and a strip of orange paper that comes on the bottom of your cardstock and you usually chop it off - everything gets used in my craft room!

There you have it! She even has glossy glasses :)  Are you reading anything interesting at the moment? Let me know in the comments - I'm always looking for a new book to add to my collection.

  1. Oh I love this it reminds me of my granddaughter who never has her nose out of a book. Thanks for entering it into the Emerald City Crafts Challenge xx

  2. Love your bookmark Sarah! Cute image...I used to get told off all the time for walking places...reading a book! Read all the Outlander series as they were published, one of my favourite authors ever! Hope you're enjoying it as much as I did!

  3. Super cute Sarah! I'm loving your SOG makes hun! Love the pops of fabulous colour and your doodling is, as always, a brilliant finishing touch. I so envy that skill, my attempts at doodling always look rubbish and I so love that look, so it's a darn shame. Fabby bookmark hun. Hugs, Wends xoxo

  4. What an adorable image for a bookmark, Sarah! It inspires me to get a new one made for myself. Mine is getting pretty tattered because it goes everywhere with me, too. :-D It's really wonderful to see you playing in our challenge at Emerald City Crafts. Good luck in the draw.
