swap a doodle dandy!

I don't often do this, but I've joined a swap over on UKS...and this one is a bookmark swap. It inspired me to have a play with the leather swatches I got from e-bay:

This is only the top half of the bookmark, just in case the swapee is looking...I want there to still be an element of suprize!! ha haa I put the orange leather through the Big Shot and although it was hard work turning the handle, it cut out a dream. The rest I cut with my sewing scissors! I've also used a We R Memory Keepers grommet as the flower centre, I love these cuties!! :)

I love that leather crafting, didn't think of leather on my LO's etc, off now to fish out 'old' handbags and shoes - thanks for the inspiration.

LOVE IT
