The Eyes Have It!

No matter how many books I read on my phone or Kindle, I still prefer the weight and smell of a
good book in my hands, paperback or hard cover! So today I made a bookmark using a digi from Bugaboo Stamps. This little fella is called Frog and is colored with Copics. I fussy-cut him out and made a "flap-over" bookmark out of a paint strip. I had to keep the embellishments down to a minimum in order to lie flat in a book, so I added a few sequins and hand-wrote the sentiment, " This book is absolutely Ribbit-ing."      When the bookmark is placed in my book, my frog's "bug eyes" peep out over the top of the book, like in my photo.

I'm entering him in this month's Catch the Bug's Anything Goes challenge. 
Other Challenges I am Entering:
Crazy for Challenges - related to vision or eyes
Less is More - Opposites on the color wheel (green & purple)

I'm with you gals. I like a real book too and I use my local library all the time. Am hooked on Stuart Woods "Stone Barrington" series. Love them. He writes 2 new ones a year and I am rereading them all again.
Easy to ready and great flow throughout the book.
