Clowning Around....

Yesterday I gave you a sneak peak of another bookmark which I was commissioned to do... It's for Alicia's daughter, Demi, who is writing Matric exams this year.  For my international friends, Matric is our final year of schooling.  After passing, our kids decide what career path they'd like to follow and then go on to a College or University to further their studies in that particular field.  We really have excellent Universities in our country.

So, without any further delay, here is the bookmark for Demi, I really hope she likes it!  Her Mom says she loves clowns and bold, bright colours.  Elisabeth Bell's clown was thus the perfect choice for her bookmark!


I've gone for the straight cut again and added a border with MS's Zig Zag border punch.  The ribbon is new, purchased today.

Here is a view from the back. I was asked to stamp Matric 2011 somewhere on the bookmark, as well as Good Luck Demi, which I've placed on the front.

Doesn't it amaze you how time flies when you're having fun ? As you know, I stamped and coloured the image yesterday and made the bookmark this evening... It's taken me 2 hours to do, but it's so enjoyable.  I'm sure my crafty friends will agree.

Tomorrow's Friday and the weekend is in sight.  Hope you've got something exciting planned for the weekend!  hugs Sharon x
