Passion for Promarkers new challenge

Where did the summer go? - such a cliche, but so true!
At least when the weather's not so good I don't feel so bad about shutting myself in my craft room!
|This fortnight at PFP we would like to see your projects that are work- related for our 'All In a Day's Work' challenge.
The DT were allowed a digi image from our sponsor Sasayaki and this is 'Library Girl'

As I made a panel/divider card, I'm afraid my post is a bit photo heavy!

Love this quote!

The cute papers are from CraftsUPrint
Mini book made from foam, jump rings & paper after watching a great Youtube video

Add Pearls at Passion for Promarkers

I hate to complain about the weather, but I haven't done much crafting lately due to the heat - I seem to come away from my craft desk with half of it's contents stuck to me!
But I did manage to get my DT card done for this fortnight's challenge at Passion for Promarkers and this time we would like you to 'Add  Pearls' to  your projects. 
I had another mini splurge at LOTV recently, I just can't help myself as it's so easy now they do digi images and one of my purchases is the image that I have used today - isn't it just the sweetest?!
Sorry about the awful glare, couldn't get rid of it.
