"Monday Madness... Imagine That!" Challenge

Happy Monday! Today is "Monday Madness... Imagine That!" Challenge over at My Creative Time. Emma has asked the design team and YOU create something anything that comes to mind that makes YOU happy! If you have an Imagine, please use it but if you don't that is okay too ~ just use pattern paper for your project! Examples: Disneyland, coffee, your family, summer... basically anything that brings happiness into YOUR life! Don't forget to link up your project! The deadline for this challenge is June 17th!

Well there are so many things that brings happiness to my life but since my son will be graduating from kindergarten this week I had to make a project about this happy event. He has done such a FABULOUS job this year at the "BIG" school, that is what we call it in our house, I wanted to make something for him and his fellow classmates. My hubby and I are so PROUD of him, not only with his school work, but with making new friends, how he conducts himself outside the house, his ability to go above and beyond ( that is what his AWESOME teacher has told us and him) and just his attitude towards school! So with all that said I decided to make him and his friends bookmarks! They all are just learning to read and are assigned some chapter books for summer reading. I though that be a great idea and to celebrate this happy occasion.

I really wanted to make these simple, they are for 6 year olds! I used the Imagine cartridge Notebook Doodles for my background paper and Emma's Tag Dies for the tags. I just love these tags and her signature stitching! I just punched out circles, die cut some caps, mustaches ( for the girls hair ), added some Peachy Keen stamps for the faces, stamped a sentiment and added some ribbon & twine! DONE! Easy, quick and fun for the kids! I couldn't help myself to put some tape on the back of the tags and add some candy too! The tape comes off very easy.

Imagine Cartridge ~ Notebook Doodles
