A Trip By The Sea

For today's post Ive created a little book cause you know how much I love to read. Right now, I'm into  book 2 "Clash of the Kings" that follows the Game of Thrones that was on HBO this summer. I love getting lost in fantasy worlds and if its a series of books, I'm even more overjoyed.

This book mark today is made up of all kinds of layers, much like the chapters in a book. You have go thru them all to get the complete story or picture. There's the background of patterned paper that looks like water. Stamped on top of that is a border of little sea shells. The next chapter(layer) consists of shell images and a vintage bather. A transparency of script comes next with the sentiment of a trip by the sea. The final layer is a border of Stickles for some glittery shine. The ombre  ribbon has some pearls from the sea so I can find it in my fantasy world!.

Hope you will be able to take a trip with a favorite book this week.
yours truly, gerri
