A Quirky Book Mark

It's that Quirky time again, time to put your knickers on backwards, take your socks off and stand in a bucket of cold custard! Time for the new fortnightly challenge to start over on Quirky Craft's Challenge Blog. And this time round it's Caro's turn to set the theme and she has chosen...
Anything But a Card!
Yep! Definitely out of my comfort zone! We are sponsored this time by lovely Robyn's Fetish and because of the initials of the challenge, abc (called an acronym according to Caro.. but don't ask me, I can't even pronounce it!) I've chosen to use some of the back to school images to make this little.... book mark.
Everything here including the papers Polka Dot Fantasy, (Printed straight onto the card) you'll find over on the Robin's Fetish shop.
I've coloured the images with Promarkers, making two of little Katy reading her books, so I could cut her out and fix her over the first image with some 3D foam pads. These were only suck at the top leaving the bottom half clear. Now she can 'hang' on the page, or peep over the top, letting you know what page you're on, and less likely to slip out of the book. I've left a little space between the other images so a name can be added, or other things like, 'keep out of my book, nosey!' Okay, that's it from me... it's your turn now! You can make anything you like, as long as it isn't a card!! Thanks for stopping by!
