So...my poor youngest daughter told me her tummy felt icky this morning - then she proved it! They have both felt icky this morning, so they are spending the day on the couch watching movies. I just realized today that they have never seen Anne of Green Gables - one of both mine and my husbands favorite movies of all times. Seemed like the perfect opportunity, so that is what they are doing. That movie still chokes me up!
Anyway, I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to make a little something special for them, so I decided to fulfill a couple different challenges and make them each a bookmark to go in their school reading. We homeschool, so they are getting the day off today as a sick day - but they both LOVE to read, so this was a perfect surprise for them. They loved it too! I know they were sick because they didn't notice what I was doing until I gave it to them!
So, there are 3 challenges I am entering these in. The first on is over at the Cricut Cardz Challenge, to make a bookmark. The second is on the Cricut Circle blog's weekly challenge to use a fairytale figure somewhere in it. And the last challenge is also on the Cricut Circle, but the monthly challenge - to make a something either for, or in honor of, the children in your life.
I used Once Upon a Princess for all the cuts. The bookmark itself is one of the tag shapes, and then I picked a different princess for each of them, and dressed them up. Added a Peachy Keen Face, lots of doodling, and some Baker's Twine for their bows. Cut out the phrase from Once Upon a Princess, and added a tassel out of Baker's Twine. Here is a close up of both of them:
Thanks for looking - have a great day!!!
