Reading Rhonda (Rachel)

Hello.  I created these super cute bookmarks and I really wanted to share them with you.  I am an avid reader to say the least.  Before I got my Kindle, there wasn't a time where I didn't have a book in my hand.  Now, there isn't a time when I don't have either a book or Kindle or both in my hand.  I even read while watching tv.  My family barks at me all the time to stop reading, get out of the fantasy worlds and join the rest of them in the real world.  I prefer the fantasy.

I am a new member of the Sassy Studio Designs group on Paper Craft Planet.  My sisters are both in that group and they just love it.  They actually force me to craft with them.  I must admit though that I really do enjoy it.  Every week SSD gives away a a free image.  They call it Fabulous Freebie Friday.  All you have to do is download it on Friday and it is yours.  

This image is called Reading Rachel.  I thought it was perfect for me since all I do is read.  I got it this past Friday, printed off a page of four and headed to work.  I was coloring them on break when my co-worker Ruthie asked if she could color one too.  I let her color and she did a great job.  I took the one she colored and made a bookmark for her.  Don't ask about the fourth one, I was having hair coloring issues with it.

The top bookmark is for my darling sister.  I found the feather barrette/brooch and knew I wanted to do something for her with it.  She has a green Amazon Parrot.  I made the bookmark and stuck a picture of her bird, Sydney in the corner.  The middle bookmark is the one Ruthie colored.  Great job Ruthie!!!  The bottom one is me again.  I just love this image.
