HSC67: Summer Reading

Are you looking forward to summer? I am! I cannot wait to sit by the pool and read....yeah right! Can you imagine? I wish I could read by the pool. I am usually under my favorite tree by the kiddie pool. I am Irish/ my skin does not like the sun....

I can attest to that since I had to visit the dermatologist this week and get steriod cream for a rash that I have had since last Friday because I sat out in the sun for about 45 minutes. Yes, I know -- what was I thinking -- but it is Upstate New York in April....alas...I have learned my lesson and purchased several Lands End sun shirts for this summer. I am starting a new trend...SUN SHIRTS and Bookmarks {grin}

This was made for today's Hanna Stamps Challenge (HSC67). Create a Flat item, not a card (tag, bookmark). I took a strip of chipboard and covered it in this fun, bright patterned paper. I printed out the saying on the computer, then punched the Summer Reading sentiment with the SU! designer label punch. I stamped the beach ball and flip flops from the new set "To the beach" {Hanna Stamps, available May 4}. I colored the images, then trimmed them out and adhered them to the bookmark. I punched three holes with my crop-a-dile, then threaded some Mayarts ribbon through the holes.

paper: white, designer paper (provo craft)
ink: black, copics
misc: chipboard, ribbon (mayarts)
