Default SEP12VSNE ~ Friday, September 21st ~ 9:00 pm EST ~ No doggy ears, please!

Title:No doggy ears, please!
Hostess: alicaz
Keyword: SEP12VSNE
Day/Date: Friday, Sept 21th
Time: 9:00pm EST

I love books, so since I was a kid I never missed an opportunity to sign up to any library I could and borrowed as many books as I was allowed to {insert bookworm icon here} .
I remember one librarian from my elementary school who never failed to remind us: No doggy ears, please! Use a bookmark!! and it's kind of stuck in my head till know.

So since back to school means lots of books, my challenge for you is to make a bookmark . Any kind, any size - you can use any technique you want, just make a bookmark...and then use it too!

And just to give you some ideas - here are some links to SCS bookmark tutorials:
Corner bookmark
Paper clip bookmark
Card with detachable bookmark

VIEW THE GALLERY FOR THIS CHALLENGE HERE

UPLOADING INSTRUCTIONS:

1. ALL VSN CREATIONS MUST BE UPLOADED BY 10:00 PM EST ON Monday September 24th.
2. You have 45 minutes to complete the challenge.
3. Please remember to put in the correct keyword, SEP12VSNE , when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos.

That doggie ear thing is STILL jerking my attention as I sit here with my little Pug.

Here's mine:

SEP12VSNE the more you read by tessaduck - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

And here's a couple shots of the first twisted bookmark I tried using this technique. This one has a bit of punched edge trim to poke out of the closed pages.

Love this challenge and can never have too many bookmarks. I couldn't get the whole "Dog Ear-ed" out of my head, so, if you can't fight it; use it. Here it is:

I love Book marks and I needed a new one for my scriptures, so I made one that was very similar to the ones we made for girls camp. You see the front and the back... I hope it makes sense.

Well you will all be tucked up in bed by now I think.

When the system crashed I decided to go shopping with DH and mum in law and then DH's bro came back to help get WyFi working.

Did you know it takes a highly skilled electical engineer with years and years of computer experiance to turn a modom off and back on and bingo there's the WyFi back again dur.

Anyway I'm now playing catch up and here's my bookmark Marg's Bookmark
Cheers

Playing catch up on challenges this morning. This MAY have taken me a bit more than 45 minutes because I made a prototype first of the corner book mark.

SEP12VSNE LL'S No Doggy Ears by muzbysmom - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

I'll also add a picture here of the card with the bookmark removed.

I created a bookmark using an old TLC challenge that Joan posted this summer. Made this to add to my daughters teachers gift for Christmas.

Thanks for looking!
Thank You Bookmark

this is my first *ever* VSN challenge and I can't figure out how to post a link to my card. I haven't "made 3 or more forum posts" and am not "allowed to post URLs to other sites", so I also can't seem to link to my gallery upload here...
