Buggy about Birthdays Hop!

Welcome! You should be arriving from the FABULOUS Techniques by Trish - wasn't Trish's project great! :D First, I want to say thank you to Corri for inviting me to join this hop for her Birthday!

My project was for my daughter's 10th birthday which was yesterday! She is an AVID reader and can NEVER find a bookmark. You should see some of the stuff she winds up using to mark her place... candy wrappers, paperclips, twist-ties, etc. LOL So I decided to make her some bookmarks and find a good place for her to keep them. I bought a slider pencil case from the $1 section in Michaels - I planned to decorated it but ran out of time, at least it's her favorite color. :)



I used paint chips for the actual bookmark - my kids love them and always have to get a few everytime we go to Home Depot. They are so colorful and easy to use! The bugs are from Create a Critter, Car Decals, and Everyday Paper Dolls. I also used a variety of sentiments from Scrappy Moms Stamps. Note: I wound up using embossing powder for the stamps on the actual paint chips as my ink kept smearing.

I hope you enjoyed my little project, your next stop on the hop its the WONDERFUL Bonnie at Pink BonBons.
