Student of the Week~

My Kindergartner came home super excited on Monday. He had been named Student of the Week! This is apparently a much sought after title amongst his class mates. I was so proud of him that I knew I wanted to make him a little something special. I thought what better then a pan of his favorite brownies and a homemade book mark. How perfect for me that the challenge this week at Tiddly Inks is "Boys will be boys."! 

 Just the theme that I needed and lucky for me they have absolutely adorable boy digis too! FABULOUS!!! I kept the design pretty basic by following this weeks Deconstruction Sketch

 Our school boy is colored in with Copic Markers and then I inked the edges of the cardstock with Close to Cocoa ink. The pattern paper is My Minds Eye, Away We Go collection. I LOVE their paper! For the fancy border I used The Cat's Pajamas Apron Border Die. I cut it out three times and layered the negative and positive pieces. I was really pleased with the way that it turned out. Lastly, I added a strip of SU! Dusty Durango ribbon and three paper buttons. All the bling and none of the bulk. I felt that it was important to keep it as flat as possible, since it is after all a bookmark! I am going to run it through the Xyron to laminate it. That's all for today. As always thanks for stopping by! Ciao~
