Make your mark... bookmark that is...

Mornin'!

It's time for a new challenge over at ATS and this week we want to see you make a corner bookmark. Now I've made a few of these before but nothing as fancy as this tutorial showed so I decided to go all out on mine today. :)
I grabbed paper scraps that where lying on my table and started putting this together before picking out an image, which is pretty unheard of for me... I almost always start a project by choosing my image first. Anyway, I went with a couple of the "B" side patterns from the Crate Restoration papers for the base and then it was time to figure out who was going to be the perfect fit. At first I was afraid of not finding anyone I liked but then I spotted the cute Emma holding rose from the CC Designs Take a Seat set. Her little eyelet lace dress was exactly the look I was going for but I did decide to alter her just a bit to hold a book rather than the rose... I was making a bookmark after all. ;)

I have to say that I love how this one came together and it makes me wish I had more free time to sit and read a good book, LOL! Ok, it's your turn now...remember, every week there is a new and exciting prize being offered and in order to be eligible to win, your card/ project must include a stamp that is sold in the All That Scraps store. Whether it is any of our wonderful in house designs or from the various other stamp companies that ATS carries, the choice is yours. Then be sure to link up your creation with Mr Linky by next Tuesday at 10pm est and only one entry per person please!

Amy! I love that you altered her and added the book! I want an Emma like this already as a stamp! lol Love how you used the mini scallop scissors with this big MS deep edger. I bought that one but returned it because it was so big! boo! Now I wish I'd kept it! Love what you did here and Emma is a doll!
