WOYWW 20.10 and some Birthday Bookmarks


Well, it's Wednesday again and time to show my desk for WOYWW - as you can see it is exactly the same as it was a couple of weeks ago!!!  I still haven't had the time to finish sorting my stash!!!

My eldest son, Edward, is 10 today - I can honestly say that I don't know where the last 10 years has gone, it doesn't seem that long ago that he was a little baby !!!!

I made some bookmarks for him to take to school to give to his friends. 

I'm going to enter these bookmarks into the following challenges:

Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Anything Goes
Top Tip Tuesday - Anything Goes Challenge

There are quite a few kids in his class!!!


Stamps: Owl and Rabbit from Stampin' Up Forest Friends Set
Ink: Staz-On in black and red
Red & Black Card: Hobbycraft
Giant Paperclips: Staples Office Supplies

Thanks for stopping by today.  Don't forget to hop over to Julia's Blog for a list of other brave WOYWWers.
