CIC528 Week 2



This lantern is from Pixel Paper Prints - Camping Boys digital set




Today I made a bookmark. Or, I could put it on the front of a card.
I love anytime we get to work with Belen's images!  


I remember my brother had a red lantern lamp when we were growing up and I totally wanted to make something with this image when I saw it!

It has been a very long time since I used eyelets.  I forgot how much fun eyelets can be.
