Bookmarks at Tag You're It!

Hello everyone: I have a quick post to share today, I've been busy doing some much needed basement updating, cleaning and sorting things down there, putting stuff in boxes to be donated, I finally broke the barrier of wanting to keep my grandchildren's toys, books, etc., I feel like I was holding on to their babyhood and childhood, especially now that they are 21, 19, 16, 15 and 12.

This "pace saver" like I like to call them, was created with an image from a 2012 Flourishes set called "From the Desk Off.....", I cut the tag with a die set from Papertray Ink called "Half and Half", (I tried to get a link again to the store but that is the only one I found), I stamped the images and colored them with Prismacolor pencils. The sentiment is a combination of a Power Poppy set called "Springtime Love", I inked the words "I Heart" with markers and then stamped the word "books" with an Avery Elle alphabet set.
The book I have in this picture is a beautiful one, it's called "Simple Abundance" by Sarah Ban Breathnach and it's full of inspiring and truly comforting short stories for each and every day of the year.  I love it because all you need to do is look for the date of the day you are living and you'll have a wonderful passage to relax you and reassure you, I have in on my nightstand and I pick it up once in a while when I need to feel things will be ok.

I'm playing along with the following challenges.
