{TCP Sneaky Peeks} Quality Time

Sneaky Peek Week
I am so excited to show you today's peek, as it's my FAVORITE set of the new TCP release!! I have a deep love of reading and I am so happy that one of my boys (so far) shares my passion for books:):)

Quality time comes with the sweetest sentiments that are sure to warm your heart:) I love PJ's little mini-me....could they be any more adorable, sharing a story (Beary Potter...Alma is not just a pretty face, she's a clever one too;) in the oversized chair.


My friend Nancy (y'all might know her...she's a fellow kitty kat;) sent me some bookmark sleeves to make some bookmarks for my lil bookworm, so I decided to use one!! Thanks Nancy!

This is me and my Ryan...he's probably reading to me, even though I'm the bear holding the book;)


I added some upholstery studs to the arms of the chair and used some text dp to piece the chair. I used some crumpled up paper soaked with clear copic refill to add leathery texture to the book. Hands and feet are popped up on dimensionals, although it's a bit hard to see with the sleeve on.
Here is the top, made with felt and the new Pom Pom flower Cutup die, and a red button tied with black thread to tie in the black stitching around the main part of the bookmark.
I used the Circus Panels Cutup for the sentiment label.


Don't forget about our IN IT TO WIN IT thread over on SCS!!! Some lucky duck is going to win this precious set!! Maybe it can be you!

Awwww! I love that you used the loopy flower at the top! As always, FABULOUS coloring, I am always SO BLOWN AWAY by your coloring, girl! Smart idea to laminate it, too. :) Thanks for the sweet comments about my Gramma, it has been a rough week, but I know she is in a better place. Big hugs!!
