Themed bookmarks for swappage & Unique Crafter's Challenge #1

 Alright, I made a bookmark book to house all of my various bookmarks, so it seemed totally appropriate to join a bookmark swap to get more bookmarks to fill it fuller, right? Here are the goodies I made. I also made them for the first Unique Crafter's Challenge that is running for the month of March! 

Challenge #1
The theme for our first challenge is: "Anything Goes"
Challenge Start Date: March 1st
Anything goes means that as long as you used some type of paper on your project, you can submit it! The winner will receive the huge honor of being the first winner of this challenge site. I think that calls for a big prize so we will be giving out a paper crafting prize package worth over $200. Two additional (runner-up) winners will also be chosen. 

So, you can pretty much submit ANY project that you used paper on, and if you win, you get a fat prize-pack of radical papercrafting supplies... Sounds like a sweet deal to me :) So go craft it up, folks, and go submit something!

 Now for some detail shots :) This one is bellydance themed. I used both Alene's flexible fabric glue and a glue inkpad to adhere the craft foil in the background and on the dancer's outfit. I know, that's not what the glue is meant for, but it works awesome with craft foil... I have to use it!
Stamp:"Baby Bunny" by Inkadinkadoo
 This one is for a forest animals theme. I took the text from an old book about forest creatures... The squirrels and songbirds actually scolded an owl in the book, but it worked with the bunny, too, and that is somehow cuter to me.
Stamp: "Birdy Shoes" by Kira Nichols for Stampotique
I used one of my Stampotique stamps for this one which for someone who likes birdies

This bookmark has the Raven King for someone who is a fan of Jonathan Strange. I finished that book a few months ago and it was pretty darn good, but crazy long and a little slow to start. It was neat to find someone else who had read it!

Stamp: "Kitty" by Daniel Torrente for Stampotique
And this little bookmark is for a red/white/black and creepy cute theme. 

Well, Happy March to you all! Be sure to enter the challenge :)
