A Bookmark for You..........

Today, my DH is lending out a book of mine to a friend at his favorite haunt, so I thought I'd whip up a quick bookmark for her to use.  It's one of my favorite local authors, Randy Wayne White, and it's his first book in the Doc Ford series.  I hate dog eared pages, so the bookmark was a big hint!    Fast and easy, but very effective with the images from the new Artistic Outpost release, Think and Wonder, and my favorite color green (paint chip).  Still having difficulty focusing, so easy is good, and next eye surgery is Tuesday!  lol, we don't realize how much our sight means to us, until we start to loose some.

As always, thanks for stopping by, hugz......

I agree with Lynn a great idea for getting your book back and to stop those nasty turned down edges...ooh I hate that.
Your scrapling looks great Gerrie. Am sorry you are still having problems and do hope the surgery is totally successful. Will be thinking of you dear Gerrie. Take care, Annette x

What a clever idea. It's such a super polite hint. Wonderful job on the bookmark. Can I borrow a book?

The paint strip works great for a bookmark and the kids are just the perfect image!
