Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge #212 National Garden Month

Hello Crafty Friends! 

Happy Tuesday :) I hope your week has started off well. I've had a bit of a rocky start, but I am back in the swing now. This time of the year is so busy. I know I've said it before, but things seem to be moving much faster in the spring. Storm season has begun here in Oklahoma and thus tornado season too. That means less sleep on stormy nights ha :) It is so amazing to see all of the things in bloom though. I don't think I've ever been so excited by all of the plants before. I am appreciating them like I never have. That makes this week's challenge at the Die Cuttin' Divas extra fun. It's a garden theme. 

My project kind of fell in my lap. My 9 year old daughter has been complaining that I haven't made her anything in a while, so I was looking for a project to make her. I decided on a bookmark since reading is one of her favorite hobbies. In the Cricut library they had this awesome The Secret Garden bookmark. It's the first book on her summer reading list, so I thought this was perfect! That little overachiever is already reading it and I didn't know haha, but she will have a bookmark for the back half of the book :) 

I purchased the cut from Cricut and all the papers are from The Paper Studio. I used Wink of Stella to add shimmer to the blue layer. It was a very simple project, but I love it so much!

She loves it and it looks great in her book. I hope to see you all at the Die Cuttin' Divas this week! Don't forget the die cut :) Thanks for reading you guys! Have a great week.
