Corner Bookmark

Hi Scrappy Friends. For today's project, I have a corner bookmark to show you. I have been trying to recreate this bookmark since October. I fell in love with it ever since I saw it on Kellie Winnell's blog. After it took me forever to color in my image, I waited another week or two :) to figure out what dp to use. Finally, I got around to cutting it, scoring it, tinkering with it and voila! 6 weeks later, here we are. Super quick, right? Lol.

But I know that my hard, laborious, prolonged work is going to be appreciated because my youngest niece has been harassing me for this image. She loves the coloring of the eye makeup and eyes, and frankly so do I :)  So I will be surprising her this Christmas and give it to her as a stocking stuffer. These are also great because you can use up your big scraps you have laying around. So its really a "Two Birds with One Stone" sort of deal (cute mini gift and use up scraps).

I'll be submitting this to Lil Lolita Boutique Challenge #25.
This is their last challenge as it is being closed down but a brand new challenge blog will begin in the New Year.

ANNOUNCEMENT: I am happy to announce that I will be part of the initial design team for the new cricut challenge blog Flaunt It Fridays. It is a challenge blog set up for all cricut lovers where you will be given an assortment of how to "Flaunt" a specific cricut cut. We will be kicking off the blog with our first challenge and grand opening blog hop on Dec 3. But before then, you can go over to meet the rest of the designers and sign up to win some Peachy Goodness. You must be a Flaunt It Fridays Blog follower before the 3rd.

Thanks for stopping by/commenting. I can't wait to see what you will create for us this week.

I would like to see a challenge for using tools and embellishments that we have but never use!

I so understand the part of how to finish one of these corner bookmarks...I made one the other day and it took for a couple hours to decide which scraps I wanted to use. Great job, I know it will be well loved. Thanks for sharing.

Congrats on making the Flaunt It Fridays design team! I cannot wait for the challenges to begin and to see everyones creations.

I would like to see a challenge for using buttons, that's what I said to Stephanie. Although, using our older tools would be a great idea too.

Wow, your bookmark is waaaay cool! Your niece will be thrilled!

I think your challenges with Stephanie should be related to upcoming holidays, events or seasons.

I entered this week's "anything goes" challenge on Stephanie's blog.

Fabulous colouring Jess, thanks for the challenge. I'm counting myself out of the I-rock draw as I live in england and the postage from US to UK is horrendous(and I don't actually know what an I-Rock is haha!) :D XXX
