do you know your abc?

It's new challenge day over at The Paper Shelter and the theme for this on is

I'll bet there are more than a few happy Mummy's out there this week.  I remember how difficult it was to keep mine amused for the long summer break.  Of course there will no doubt be a few tears too as the wee munchkins head in for their first ever day :)

I thought I'd make a little bookmark for a change.  It's not often I do anything other than cards so it's nice to do something else now and again.
The papers were scraps from my box as is the ribbon.  I coloured the image which you can find over at The Paper Shelter store with copics and added a little set of pencils which I made from cocktail sticks and a wee bit of script to carry on the theme.
Do play along if you have time and again, time permitting go and see what my lovely teamies have created to inspire you :)
Happy Crafting
