The Journey is Just Beginning....

for my new Design Team! I have some very exciting news! I have been asked to join the Sentimental Sundays Design Team! I am so excited to be a part of this wonderful group of women! The challenge this week is Anything But A Card. I have put together this magnetic bookmark for my daughter who is graduating high school. My sentiment is from Raindrop Echo Designs New Beginnings set. The flower is made from satin and has had the edges singed. The ribbon is from Wal-Mart and the edges are hand-stitched.

 The Magnets are from Basic Grey. They are very strong, but very small magnets. I found them at 7 Kids College Fund store. I love this type of bookmark because I can clip it to another page while I'm reading and I don't have to worry about dropping it.

Be sure to stop by the Sentimental Sundays blog for more inspiration from the design team!

Congrats! I am so excited to have you on the SS DT. I have been admiring your work for a while and now get to work with you on a team.

I love your book mark. The colors are wonderful. I always like this type of bookmark because it takes a lot for them to fall out.

Enjoy the rest of the week end!
