And now for my projects....

I decided to make some back to school bookmarks for my 5 grandkids.
The first 3 are for my granddaughters.  For each bookmark
I used both a sentiment and an image for the new stamps.

For this first one I used School Zone.
I paper pieced the apple and worm.
For this one I used Blooming for You.
I used the free SVG file for both the sentiment
and the bear, I even created an offset.
I paper pieced the flowers and the bears muzzle.
For this last one, I used the super sweet Freebie stamp
everyone will receive with a minimum order of 2 stamps sets.
I stamped the bear on watercolor paper and used
watercolor pencils and a water brush to color him in.
All paper used on all 3 bookmarks is Doodlebug.
Stop back tomorrow to see the bookmarks I made for my grandsons!
Next up on the Line Up is the amazing SUKIE. Be sure to hop with us tomorrow!! Winners will be picked from a different blog each day,so the more you comment the more chances you have to win.
