To My Favorite Bookworm!

Hello there fellow booklovers! Or not? I love to read! I'm in a book club, and go to the library often, either for myself to get romances or for my kids to get them new books! I have successfully passed on my love for reading on to my children! Yes! I did something right! LOL!

This was made for the first challenge for My Favorite Things So You Think You Can Stamp? based on the well known dance show w/ the same title. This first week, we (MFT Junkies) were challenged to make a project that lifts, flips and spins based on the dance of the West Coast Swing. Well, I had never heard of that particular dance before, so I went on YouTube and watched some episodes. It's not a big deal type dance. Mainly everyone in the world dances like this and doesn't even know it! LOL!

So, for my project, I decided that I would do a bookworm and apple since I have these stamp sets and really, this is just what came to me as I was sketching out some ideas.

The "Flip" occurs first, as you flip open the worm and the apple to open it up! (Pictures 2 to 3). Then you get the "Spin" when you spin through his thoughts as he reads his book! (Pictures 4 to 8) And lastly, you "Lift" the flap on the right side to show the library card! (Pictures 9 & 10).

And that's it! I, of course, went a little crazy. I just don't know how to tone down my "out of the box" ideas! Oh well! Everyone creates differently!

Have a stamptastic day!
