Christmas Reading!!

Good Monday morning everyone! Has your holiday weekend been great so far? We had friends of ours over yesterday from Maryland and spent the day at the pool and then had dinner together. It's always fun to catch up, we definitely don't get together enough. Today I'm taking my daughter and her best friend for manicures and pedicures for a kinda "back to school" gift, since school starts tomorrow (can I hear a "whoot, whoot"--quiet time in the house for me again, yippee)!! My daughter starts 7th grade and my son 5th grade...sigh...getting older & taller by the minute I think! Then I'm coming home and cleaning out my dd's and ds's closets and dressers--I can't take the disaster zones in there any longer. Plus I need to weed out their outgrown clothes to put the new school clothes away--fun for me, ha ha! Then maybe I'll get a little time to stamp!

My project I'm sharing with you today is a DT project we all did for Whiff of Joy stamps. We were to come up with bookmarks using the "Charlie and Charlotte" stamps. This was really fun and I made these 2 bookmarks with my kids in mind, since they'll be getting these when I'm all done w/ them. Not too hard to explain, I used Charlie with Snowballs and Winter Charlotte with cat except I cut her cat off so it would just be Charlotte on the bookmark. Both images were colored with Copics and cut out and popped up on dimensionals. For the "Charlie" bookmark I used some dp I had in my scrapbin with Bazzill cs--his sentiment is from Verve Stamps "Beautiful You"--I lovee this quote from Dr. Seuss, so fitting for this image! The "Charlotte" bookmark uses dp from Memory Box and the sentiment is also from Verve Stamps but from the "Fairytales" set. I added ribbon to the end of my daughter's bookmark, but my son requested their be "no girly ribbon" on his, lol! Just another great way to use these cutie pie stamps.

Make sure and check out the rest of the DT bookmarks over on the Whiff of Joy gallery--everyone came up with some very unique and beautiful ideas. And don't forget the new stamps from Elisabeth Bell (The Guardian Angels) and the new Willow/Oakley stamps will go on sale at Whiff of Joy on September 3rd. They are GORGEOUS! Can't wait till mine are here so I can show them off to you---you will LOVEEE them!! You can see sneak peeks over at Katharina's blog.

Until tomorrow...
