Little pirate

Hello everyone!  So how was your Sunday?!?  I made some food than I played a bit and didn't get much done however... I was making some different altered art items... and well that really does take longer to do!  But it was fun to get my hands dirty lol and now they are all dry after being washed so many times today ;o)

I wanted to play over at the Kraftin Kimmie challenge for their back to school.  And I didn't want to make another card that would not be used!  So I figured I would do a bookmark.  I've been meaning to try out making the corner ones and when I saw the DT inspiration that really got me thinking that this would be fun!  I could give it to one of my son's for his book (he really has a lot to read for school right now) and maybe get him inspired to read, ?!?  Or maybe not... but it won't be because he doesn't have a bookmark (BTW is it just me or do your kids lose those like crazy?!?  Mine just keep losing them and I have no clue as to how they go about doing that...)

Anyway I digress, I looked over in google to find a tutorial (mind you I'm pretty sure there must be a form in my Cameo that would do this... but I figured I would make it by hand with some scraps of paper) and I found one.  You can see it for yourself here. It's super easy so that I really love!  And I kept the shape for future use.  And this way I can make new ones when they lose them... or when I have a challenge requiring to make something other than a card!

I used a little pirate that I had purchased at a clearance sale from Kraftin Kimmie... so don't have the proper name for him but I really think he's totally adorable!!!

So as I mentioned I used all scraps of papers to make this!!!  YAY.  I used my large oval from Spellbinder.  I also used my label maker to make the sentiment.

Here's a look when it's in a book:

I'm really loving how this turned out!!!
