I'll Wait Here for You!

Hey there! I'm here to show you my project for this week's anything goes challenge at Inspiration Destination. I made a magnetic bookmark! Rather pleased with myself on how it turned out!
I don't like bookmarks that stick out of the book. I prefer flat bookmarks. I've had bookmarks with tassels on the end and they get caught on something and slip out of the book! What a hassle trying to figure out where I was especially when it's been more than a couple of days before I got back to my book. I've seen magnetic bookmarks and when I saw this image, I knew EXACTLY. What. I. Wanted. To. Make. :) Isn't it awesome when it all falls into place like that? So this is how I like my bookmarks to be waiting for me. :)
Click on the images for a closer look!
I fussy cut the bottom portion of the image to create the flap that will go over the page. I layered a flat magnet between the image and backing and then another piece under the pattern paper. 
I recycled the flat magnet! You ever get those flat magnets for your refrigerator from sales reps, companies and on and on? Well, I. Love. Getting. Those! Ha! I save, cut and use them as closures! :D I bet those people that send these out wouldn't send them to me if they knew that! I even have my family save them for me! :D

 Here's a peek at what's under the flap.
I'm aging and it's hard to have a steady hand some days. I guess I should invest in a tripod! :p lol It surely wouldn't hurt. But in case you can't make it out... it reads "I'll wait here for you!" lol I like to tell folks that when I'm in a situation I have to be there when they come back... for example... when I've driven someone to the grocery store or doctor's appointment and I'm their ride home as well. :) Or at the office, when my boss and coworkers tell me they are going to lunch. Ha! :D And well, the bookmark will have to be there when I get back to it... like this! lol
Here's a pic of my coloring. I'm starting to get the whole brown hair thing. :)
I've used Book Lover from SLS Lines, our fabulous sponsor at Inspiration Destination this week. I've colored the image with Copic markers and it took everything I had to keep from adding Glossy Accents on her glasses! I like to do that but I wanted the image as flat and non-dimensional as possible. All other supplies are from my stash. :)
I'd like to enter my bookmark into these challenges, if I may please:
Thanks for stopping by!
