There's Fun in the Sun to be Had at Scribbles Designs Challenge Blog

In this age of technology, a person get anything on a computer or digital device. Parents no longer have to buy expensive sets of encyclopedias, students no longer have to go to the library for references and citations. Avid readers can store numerous books on their Kindles and Nooks, etc.
I don't know about you, but I like to hold a PAPER BOOK in my hands. It's easier on the eyes, I don't have to charge it and the words I read seem to have more "weight". 

As a book reader, I often find myself looking for a bookmark, so I thought I'd make a set of bookmarks for my DT make today for Scribbles Designs Challenge Blog. The theme at Scribbles Designs is FUN IN THE SUN. I love to sit in the sunshine with a book in one hand and a tall cool glass of iced tea in the other hand. Preferably looking out over the Caribbean, but living in Chicago makes that an impossibility unless I'm vacationing.

My bookmarks use a digi image from the Scribbles Designs Store called #848 Flip Flops. I digitally colored a few pair of flip flops, lined them up and printed my sentiment over them: "Summer reads are to flip over". After adhering the bookmarks to some handmade paper, I hand-colored another set of flip flops for each bookmark. I used colored pencils and glitter gel pens and placed these in the corners where the bookmarks will stick out of books.

This challenge runs until the 14th of August, so don't forget to link up your card or project for your chance to win a gift certificate to the Scribbles Store.
By the way, what are you reading right now? I just finished an Anne McCaffrey book that I must have missed throughout the years, and have started a China Bayles mystery series by Susan Wittig Albert.

Happy crafting, peeps and don't forget, "Fight evil...Read a book."

Agreed, paper books are the so much better than electronic versions (you can't forget the scent as a pro, ha ha)! Thanks for sharing your fun bookmarks with us at Love To Craft
