PTI blog hop: holiday leftovers.

Hi peeps!

hope everyone's christmas was merry and bright :)  My hubs is trying to keep with all the kids' battery demands for all their new toys, so I have just enough time to join in the hop and then run back to help out!

I used leftover papers from here:


and here:


and cut up an extra of a tag like this one:


and, when I say "cut up," I really mean it:


to create myself a little bookmark:


I thought, now that the rush of Christmas is over, I might indulge myself in a bit of reading... 


but that was before I opened my new and amazing Kindle!  I'll be reading, but I guess I won't be needing my new bookmark for awhile :) hee hee.  



Thanks for looking!




supply list
dies: bookmark, label basics, heart prints
papers: kraft wrapping paper, stamper's select white, SU patterned paper, craft doily
