Reading Bug…



Today I have a new project to show.  I called it Reading Bug, and it is a bookmark. It sounds strange maybe, but it has some meaning to it. Last summer we were participating in the program called Reading Bug at our local library. It was all about how fun it is to read! I’m really glad that our community has these activities, it keeps kids busy during the summer.

Another reason why I decided to make this bookmark is because we call Sergei a Bug. Not in a bad meaning of course. It started from calling him Zhuck (in Russian means Bug) in Russia; when Sergei was small he was like a little bug crawling, always busy of doing something. And when he started to talk it was (and still like this) never stop talking (buzzing)!  When we moved to USA, Zhuck changed to Bug! Since Sergei likes to read – here is a bookmark with a dragonfly for him! Perfect for a little boy!

The idea for this cute bookmark belongs to Stamping Mathilda. She has a great tutorial on how to make it. Sometimes I think what will I do without very talented crafters? Really, really appreciate that all of the wonderful people are sharing with all of us their experience and creativity.

The stamp I used is from Artful INKables.  This set is so versatile, I love all of the small details in it for creating a scene! Before I will finish this post I wanted to tell that Holly, our INK Girl, is hosting an Artful INKables card swap at Splitcoaststampers! Sounds like lots of fun!!! If you would like to join, please,  stop at the Splitcoaststampers site for more details. And one more thing to share we will  have an AI  blog hop and some new releases on April 15th! You will like the new stamps, I promise!


Thank you for stopping by today! Thank you for leaving your kind comments! They always make my day!

    What a cute name to call your son! Do others call him that or is it just you and your husband? Love that bookmark. I may just need to look into the tutorial. I need a book mark for my Twilight books that I’m reading right now! Love the cute dragon fly and lovely papers that you used for your book mark. Very pretty!
