…no friend as loyal as a book

Today I’m sharing a cute little bookmark I made featuring Don’t Forget Your Lunch from the Rio N’ Toots’ collection from Simply B Stamps.

The images in this collection are drawn by Betty inspired by her daughter Rio, who just happens to be a bookworm so what better way to feature the image than on a bookmark.  I cut the image in two to have one on either side of the bookmark, gotta love Betty’s images for their versatility!

My bookmark follows the current sketch over at Papertake Weekly, I just stretched it to be the right shape for a bookmark.  Now you need some ribbon on a bookmark, at least I think you do to easily find it in your book, and I’ve had this awesome skull ribbon in my stash for a while.  With it I am entering this in the current Left of Center challenge, luckily it’s an and/or challenge as flowers would’ve made the bookmark too fat.

I’m also entering this in the current Craftitude challenge where I’ve got all the possible themes covered.  It’s anything goes, easily covered that one, or add a brad, I have two although I wish I’d had a cute skull rather than the hearts but you just gotta roll with what’s in your stash sometimes, or eyelet, got that too which is under the ribbon.
