cricutcardz #64

happy wednesday!  this week over at CCC  in honor of dr duess and national read across america week  jeri has chosen a theme of bookmarks. be sure to go check out what the rest of the DT has created to hold the page for ya :)
i made 2 bookmarks for this challenge and also made some a long time ago for bittenbythebug which ill show on this post again.
i used animal kingdom cartridge for the bookmarks.

for the first one (on the right)  i wanted to honor dr suess , so i used the fishbowl bookmark, then added fish ( one fish two fish,...you get it ;) ) from zoobaloo cartridge. i thought they were more suessish  :) i added cloud9 raindots and a little colorbox fluid chalk.
  for the 2nd one i opted for girly. i used a childs year for the book/read and girl reading. the wording is from graphically speaking. i added colorbox fluid chalk, ribbon, stickles and dotted with acrylic paint.i added a swirl clip  to attach the b/mark to the book page ( which  realize didnt photo in this pic but you can see it on the top post :)
now heres the other 2 , i used graphically speaking for words and going places (card feature) for the images. i added magnets to the front and back insides covering them with paper ( using shadow feature for that ( page 130 in the manuel) they fold over the page this way. the magnets then keep them in place. also added some stitching, colorbox fluid chalk , a flower from i forget which cartridge and ms punch  butterflies

thanks so much for stopping by and having a peek, hope you have a fun rest of day :) XXXshelly
