Hello again, my Lovelies! It is time for another fabulous StampInsanity cahllenge! This week, the Groovy Gurlz are challenging you to make a bookmark…but with a little twist! You gotta add some hardware! Here’s my little piece of fun: Say hello to Jack. He’s from one of Beth’s latest releases called What the Heart Wants. It’s really with the anticipation of Eclipse coming out (next month!!!) but I always think of New Moon when I think of Jacob. Here’s a close up. As I most often do, Jake is colored in with colored pencils. I added a bunch of yarn for a tassel (which is held on by a big eyelet!), and I also added 3 tiny bells. When I think of Native American jewelry and decorations, there is often little charms hanging off of it… hence the bells. Here’s some more hardware. I added staples through the length of the bookmark and I added this funky cog that I got from my friend Kelli. Jake looks a little snarky, so I made a sentiment sayin’ “Read Dammit.” I used a piece of chipboard for the base of the bookmark and then I wrapped the main paper around it. I also added an extra strip of paper to the back to hide the edges of the staples. Wouldn’t want those getting caught on your precious pages would ya???Here’s the rest of the set. You can ONLY nab it at Stamp Happens! Click the Stamp Happens blinkie on my sidebar to buy it!!! You know you want it!!! It’s almost your turn! First, I want you to go and check out the rest of the Groovy Gurlz, show ‘em some love, and then you are off to create your own bookmark! Remember, you could win some fab digis if you play along with the Asylum!!!Jacquie Jennifer Lisa Juanita Margie Sarabeth Suzi Tonya I am also submitting this bookmark in the Cinema Saturday challenge. The challenges to be inspired by New Moon and to add a bit o’ silver to your project. Done! I’m sure it works for some other challenges too, but I have no idea how you chicks keep track of them all! Hey! Didja see that Artful INKables is having a hop for Eclipse??? Make sure you join in! Have an inspiring day!!!
WOW! Love how you added those tiny bells. You do a great job coloring with colored pencils.

So. Freaking. Cool. I love the pairing of the sentiment and image. It really looks like something "Jack" would be saying here!
great bookmark girlie!!!!! i love the book in the background 🙂
Cool bookmark. Love the sentiment, made me laugh since I haven't picked up Lover Avenged in 2 weeks. I know what your thinking, how can I not pick it up. I hate getting interrupted while I read so I only pick up the book when I can read for a couple of hours.
I used to be able to keep up with all the challenges but now I need to keep up with my DT responsibilities, lol.
Wow, this is AWESOME! i love the sentiment.
Awesome! LOVE the sentiment and colors you chose – flipping great work!!
Great book mark. Love the image and the bells are a clever touch!
Great book mark. Love the image and the bells as your accents!
This is wonderful Alison! This is a bookmark my teenage son would use!
