Basketball Bookmarks

Before I start my post for today, be sure to stop by on December 2! JustRite will be sponsoring a blog hop featuring last minute gift ideas. It's sure to be a fun time!
Now for my post. I thought I would start out by showing you some of the scrapbook pages I worked on at the scrapbooking retreat I went to recently. I worked on the girls' albums and did mostly their sports pages. Sports are huge to our family. I am so thankful to have two, over the top talented little sports nuts for daughters too.
So needless to say, I take a ton of photo at the games, always trying to get that perfect shot.
Then when it comes time to scrapbook, I am in photo heaven......and photo overload too! :) Lots and lots of photos but we LOVE to look at the albums.
While I was still in sports mode, I wanted to create something for my girls. I decided to make them some book marks with their school colors and some basketball embellishments.
I found this great sentiment *Dream Big* by Just Rite that worked perfect for what I wanted to create. I used the new set called Just A Note Borders and Corners which fits into the new 2" Square Stamper. I also like the fun curly swirly border of the new 2" Frames set. I colored the little butterflies in with an orange Copic Sketch marker and then used Glossy Accents and some glitter to add a little bling.
I made my bookmark by cutting out a Classic Long Megabilities rectangle and Long Scalloped Megabilities rectangle using Spellbinders die templates. The longer shape is perfect for bookmarks. I finished off the bookmarks with Papertrey patterned paper and some basketball themed stickers.
For the back of the bookmarks, I added a white rectangle to match the size on the front. I wrote this note on the back to my girls: "Aim for the net but always keep reaching for the stars. You can do anything in life you want to do. Always keep reaching. Dream Big. Love Mom."
