What's the Story?


Hi there! I'm back with another MFTeaser for you! Flopsey's back in the set What's the Story. The images were perfect for this reading journal and coordinating bookmark I made for my daughter Anna (click on the photo for a better view). She's starting first grade in a couple weeks, and she loves to read. I thought this would be a fun way for her to record the books she reads -- a good way to practice writing, too! :)

I covered a composition book with For Peep's Sake paper, and I used scraps of the same paper on the bookmark. I colored Flopsey with Copics. On the journal I embellished with SU! ribbon, Euphoria brads and buttons and some Prima flowers. For the bookmark, I tied SU! ribbon through a Jumbo Eyelet, and I added two Pastel Button Babies from Gina K. Designs to the sides of the sentiment.

Don't forget -- the New Release Cocktail Party will be tomorrow (Wednesday) night from 9-11 pm EST on the MFT Forum at Splitcoaststampers. Come for MFTeasers, prizes, and to find out how YOU can be the next MFT Guest Designer!

Tomorrow I'll be back with another MFTeaser AND the ATS Wednesday Challenge! Lots of fun -- I hope you'll stop by! Thanks for the visit today! :)

Stamps: What's the Story (MFT) Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black (Tsukineko) Cardstock: Regal Rose, Gable Green, Whisper White (SU!)

Absolutely adorable, Christina! I wish I had kept a reading log of all the books that Truman read when he started reading -- definitely going to with Carter. Check out this site for inspiration to do so: http://www.whatihaveread.net
