I love books!

I'm admitting to my reading addiction. I love books. Not a day goes by without a book in my hand or my Kindle (which I love). I'm currently reading book 2 of The Hunger Games, Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins. I cannot put this series down. It is that good. If you haven't read it, you must pick it up!

 Book 1

 Book 2

I'm almost ready for book 3, Mocking Jay.

So, last night I made a bookmark for my reading. I've been using a bookmark I made about a year ago and it's getting pretty tattered so I figured it's time for a new one.

I used the hot air balloon stamps from Papertrey Ink and their matching dies. Check out the little cloud- I used felt and ran the die through my Epic. A tip for this is using a thin enough felt. The felt at Papertrey Ink is the perfect thickness to use with dies. It cuts nicely and the image pops right out. The bookmark says 'the sky is the limit'- I love that!
