YNS Challenge # 28

Hello and happy hump day!!! Today at Your Next Stamp Challenges we have a fabulous challenge Of creating a bookmark, I having the privilege of being my towns librarian makes me very happy. I am trying to get the children so excited about books Literacy rules!!!  I decided to create a corner style bookmark because I have never created one before!


I think Just Swimming by Mermaid is one of my favorite stamp sets ever which just so happens to be my 1st ever YNS stamp, so it will always hold a special place in my heart. Do you want to know the hardest thing about creating this project? No foam tape!!!! I am addicted to the stuff but knew I had to forgo it so this is flat, flat, flat! Well I hope you play along this week and find the perfect book to nestle this into. Beth
