My new bookmark :D

I was going to wait to post this until tomorrow, but in order to make an entry into one of the challenges, I have to get it up by midnight. I was blog hopping around today and noticed that some of the blogs I follow have challenges that could be combined into one item. I found 6 challenges to enter!!!! That's crazy! But the good thing: I finally got to make something for ME! edit - ok after doing some more blog hopping today I found tons of more challenges to enter my new creation in. yay!!!

So my current bookmark was something a friend of the family made that has a copy of my grandmother's obituary laminated onto the back. The front is a Thomas Kincade picture. I have been told by more than one person this may be a little creepy. So when I saw a challenge today to make a bookmark, my mind started working. I then went on the hunt for more challenges. Here is what I created and I absolutely LOVE it!!!

 

The charm, spider circle, bracket and thriller tag are from Making Memories. The rest of the stuff is from my stash. I cut the "31" from the blackletter cricut cartridge.

This is perfect for me for year-round use since my birthday also happens to be Halloween! Yay!!!
