This project started with a journal sheet from my sons school daily log from last year!  I love recycling old music sheets, book pages and YES, even handwritten journals!  This particular day included a "no school" day and when I have a day off, I love to read so it fit today's project perfectly!




For today's project, I've used the "Girl Reader" stamp from the "youthful" collection by Kenny K.  I've made a bookmark today to go along with the reading theme.  Not to mention, this item is always a big draw to my craft table for the kids.  *gib grin* Hope you get some peaceful reading time in soon as the kids will be home all day soon!
