Time to Hit the Books!

Well, it's nearly time to hit the books!

For this week, Judi asked us to do something connected to a school theme and I made these three bookmarks!
I wanted to showcase some of the animals from Judi's Aussie Animals set! They are really cute!
Of course, you recognize the Koala bear. In addition there are Kookaburra birds and a Sugar Glider!
There is also a Wallaby in the set.

I love leaves and branches, so I went into my stamp inventory and found three different images to work as my background.
My "background card stock is Celery from SU! It is framed in chocolate and the Ripe Avocado (PTI). Rectangles have been cut on my cuttlebug iwht the long nestability rectangle sets-the very first time I've used them!
It goes without saying that I colored the animals with my copic markers. Afterward, I added some sparkle or shine to each one-spica pen on the pine cones and needles and stickles on the balloon and flower centers. The large eyelets are from SU and I used ribbon and twine for my "tassels".
I love to give bookmarks because they are so useful and you can personalize the back so easily with the recipients initials or name!

I hope you'll travel to the Angel's Landing blog to get the connections for some great projects from the other designers!
We all hope we have "made the grade" with this assignment!









Thanks, once again, for taking the time to visit!
Hugs,
Cheryl
