Challenge #11 at Fairies-back to school tag

So over at Fairies Challenges the latest wonderful challenge for you is Back to school, I dare say some of you mums will heave a sigh of releif and others will miss their little ones attending for the very first time. I used to have very mixed emotions after a lovely six weeks together.
Now I have a granddaughter, age 6. Her mom will miss her so much. She can read beautifully now and I made this for her in celebration of that fact. Reading has been one of the big loves of my life, I cannot imagine a world without my lovely little ereader which goes everywhere with me. I hope she develops a love of the written word too, it won't be for the lack of us reading to her!!


Lovely digi from Melonheadz one of our super sponsers this time. I love how bold it is and decided block colouring would work well here. I used Promarkers.
Scraps from the scrap box
Tassel I have had over 5 years and really should have used before!
SU label punch to shape the top
Cropodile to create eyelet which has been hiding in my stash for years (at least 6) sigh
