Pixie’s Bookshelf Projects

Hello!  I’m very excited to show you my projects today.  The book to read this month at Pixie’s Bookshelf was Switched by Amanda Hocking.  I had heard lots of good things about this book, and about this author.  And I have to agree with all of those great reviews.  I loved the book so much that I had to run out and get the second book in the series and read it, too!  Now I have to impatiently wait until April 24 to read the third book.Smile 

I made two projects for this challenge.  Belle of the Ball from Pixie Dust Studio reminded me of the ball scene from the book, so I made a card with her…

And then I made a funky tag/mini bookmark, too.

It says “Trylle vs. Vittra”(in case you had trouble reading it).  The letter stamps are Studio G, and the other two stamps are from Smeared Ink.  I covered it in crackle glaze.

If I explain too much about the tag, or the characters I really like from the story it will give too much away if you haven’t read the books, so I’ll just keep my mouth shut for now.  I have ideas brewing for further projects, though.  You know it’s a good story when it inspires your creativity.

Thank you for looking!
