Book Lovers

I never used to be much of a book reader but when we started going south for 2 1/2 months in the winter, it gave me something to do while sitting in the warm sun.  Now I read whenever I can fit it in, usually before going to bed at night.  I'm in the middle of a wonderful series now and can't wait for the next chapter.

This week's challenge for Fantabulous Cricut is "Book Lover", make something for or with a book. 

I didn't have many book cuts but loved this one on A Child's Year.  I made my own background paper by typing a variety of "reading" sayings to fill the page.  I layered  the cut and the background with grey to keep it neutral.  I can't imagine it's very comfortable sitting on a rock while reading (lol) but it's still a good picture.
