Rulers School measures UP Bookmark/Tag

Created this Bookmark/Tag with a school/rulers theme.

Used Die-namics die for tag base. Embossed the Tag with Tim Holtz Rulers embossing folder. Heat embossed with gold embossing powder on vellum Lawn Fawn alphabet letters to spell sentiment 'School measures UP.' Stamped MFP stamp on vellum. Fussy cut out MFP stamp. Added washi tape to complement the Rulers theme. Used TH Distress Ink on edges. Attached ribbon with TH stapler.

Finished reading Jane Eyre. On a scale of 1 - 10 with 10 being the highest I would rate Jane Eyre a 7 1/2. I'm now reading Mary Higgins Clark Before I Say GoodBye. Bought myself a bedrest pillow which is comfy for reading.
