Another awesome stamp from A day for Daisies, Dragon Cutie. When I saw this vintage key digi by Prairie Fairie, I just had to have it ~ it looks great under her arm right? I've used a scalpel to the arm and slid the keyparts through, with cushions underneath, so it looks really 3D.

Bookworm Bookmarks!

Åååå så søt liten bokorm! Niesen min er nettopp begyndt i andre klassen, så jeg håper hun får bruk for disse bokmerkene ~ og mere lyst til å lese! Da jeg var på hennes alder var jeg allerede en liten bokorm, husker enda første gangen jeg leste en bok med mere tekst i enn bilder .. om Den lille Prinsen. Vakker bok!

Theese bookmarks are for my little niece who has just started on the 2nd grade ~ I hope she'll get a better appetite for reading soon! There is so much lovely children books out there ~ Alice in wonderland for example!
When I was her age I was at the liberary often and picked out books to dream away in.. but then I got started reading even before I began school ~ my elder brother wouldn't read my Donald Duck mags. out loud for me, so I had to learn the letters early.. *lol*
By then I was hooked, and became a frequent visitor at the liberary.. The first book I fell in love with that had more words than pictures in it was The little Prince. Also any book by Astrid Lindgren was a sure favourite
