Book borrowed

You all know that a book is borrowed from the library. Knowing that here's my entry for The Kraft Journal's challenge, 'Something Borrowed, Something Blue". So link the borrowed to a book and the blue to the Spellbinder's Label Twenty-one and there you have it, "SB, SB"!!!!
The thin chip board is cut twice so I could place the ribbon between them, and then the light kraft paper adhered over it. Spellbinders dies sure do make it easy to layer all the papers so perfectly.
There is ample ribbon out the top as well as the bottom for finding that last place read.
Oh! I am such a book borrower it hurts me to see where ppl have bent over the corner to save their place.
In the summer, I average about four books in a two week period. I could read more, but then nothing else would get done around here. Believe me when I say that it's hard to run Mimi's Summer Camp and read novels at the same time. Ask the two girls...they will tell you that their Mims likes to read. The three of us check out 10-12 books every week from our community library!
Books for me to read to them, Lily with books to look at the pictures, and Megs loves to read, too!
Megs enters first grade in August and she is a prolific reader! She's a bit afraid of the chapter books, "So many words on a page!" she says, but she did manage to read just one so far this summer.
Thanks for coming by!

Supplies: chip board, kraft paper, CTMH blue textured paper, white paper.
Pumpkin Pie ink, Daisy Doodles image from 'Flower pack', Spellbinders 14 and 21, 
sponging technique, sentiment is SU 'So many Sayings' from me to you.

How adorable, Joanne! And what a great take on our Something Borrowed, Something Blue challenge this week at The Kraft Journal. I never would have thought of this! Just brilliant! And so pretty, too. I really like how you thought to sandwich the ribbon, and the layered dies are so wonderful. Thanks for playing along with us this week.
