I Love to Read!

I really do! I read a LOT. I usually have an upstairs book and a downstairs book. It seems if I'm not creating, I'm reading. I love bookmarks. A friend asked for a simple gift for a new teacher and I remembered Regina, from The Cutting Cafe, sent a fabulous school file, All About School. It has 38 great images! I especially like the bingo cards...so cute! I printed the READ bingo card onto kraft paper. The I love to read circle along with the apple image made a pretty focus.
I added several vintage buttons.
The red one at the top is one of my favorites and I love how the big one on the ribbon tail looks hanging out of the book.

I think I need to make myself one of these!

I'd like to take a moment to thank City Crafter for choosing my Halloween star card as one of the spotlight cards for last week's challenge. City Crafter is a fun challenge blog. I've really enjoyed participating. THANK YOU!
