Cookbook Bookmark

Update:  Happy Day!   I won the There She Goes Challenge with this bookmark!  See it here.

I spent my Saturday in my craft room.  Not the fun way that your think though.  I was reorganizing and trying to make more space.  Which now has spread into the guest bedroom and guest bedroom closet.  I started around noon and didn't stop until 10:00.  It's still very crowded but you can walk across it without practicing your best ballet moves.  Found some more stuff that I can get rid of.  I may list some stamps on my blog for sale.  I really could use some Scrapfest funds.  Plus (the same weekend of course) is Junk Bonanza, which is the coolest junk market ever.  It's once a year and in the next town from me.  There are some advantages to living by the big city.  I always find some great vintage ephemera, plus much more.  I did get to the 2 local junk markets on Thursday.  I wish they were more often than once a month.  I found another cool metal parts drawer which brings me back to the organizing the room.  I had to find a spot for my new finds which led to the 10 hour room overhaul. 

I did get in a fast bookmark today.  This is for 4 challenges:
1)  There She Goes - Bookmarks
2)  Colour Q -

3) Flutter by Wednesday - 1 sparkle, 2 designer papers, 3 buttons or gems
4)  Pink Elephant - Ribbon & Sparkles

I made a cookbook bookmark.  My cookbooks are always covered in those little post it flags, so I thought the ribbon reminded me on them.  I used some dazzling diamonds on the pie crust to give it a little sparkle, and paper pieced the pie plate.  The little butterfly rest on my pie is a SU sizzlets die.
