#66 Back to School - DT Post for Creative Inspirations.

With back to school for many of us right around the corner, including me (I go back to work soon) getting the kids ready can be over whelming. By this time next week, my son will be moving into his dorm and be living in Manhattan. I am excited as he starts out this new phase of his life. But at the same time sad to see him go since I of course will miss him. My house will be so quite with him gone and my other son practically living with his girlfriends family. So it's only me and hubby left in the house.

So with all that said and done, our theme this week is Back to School. So I decided to make an old fashioned "Book Mark".. Now by Old Fashioned I mean this by two fold, many of us don't read "books" anymore, as Nooks ,i-Pads & Kindles are becoming more and more popular and and book stores are becoming a thing of the past. So I made what I now consider an old fashioned "book mark".
I received this image last year from Copic Creations when they were giving away these book mark images to do just that make a book mark. Of course, I never was able to use it then, but am able to use it now. So here is my take on this weeks challenge Back to School.

The book marks are from Michaels, once again I printed out the image on computer paper, lined it back up with the book mark, then scotch taped the book mark onto the computer paper placed it back in the printer and reprinted it.
Image By:
Paper: SU: Espresso
Extras: Sparkle Buttons from Michaels as is the Bookmarks, stickles
Image colored with Copics

As always, thanks for stopping by my part of the world, now that you are here, I would love hearing from you.

Oh what a sweet bookmark, that little fiary is adorable!
How exciting for your son to start his new adventure, but I'm sure you will miss him dreadfully. Will he be close enough to bring his dirty laundry home and raid your cupboards (...or just far enough away LOL!)
