Purple Polkadotted Posy Placemarker - Creative Belli Challenge "P"

So, today is a new Creative Belli Challenge. This week we want to see your creations using embellishments that start with the letter "P". Now I can honestly say...I struggled a bit with this. Since the whole idea of the Belli Challenge is to use what we have in our stash, I really had to think. So...here is what I ended up with. Yes that is a giant paperclip...lol. Back in December I went to a crop, and each person had to bring a gift for a "day of Christmas". Well the one lady gave us some cardstock and patterned papers, and to hold them all together was this giant paperclip. Well, me being me...I knew I had to save it, and "fix" it. So I thought it was perfect for the letter "P" challenge. So I located it in my craftcave...of course like most of us...my table is not very neat...lol. Then I grabbed some chipboard and used my Cricut to cut this "Pretty Purple Polka dotted Posy". I cut the flower from chipboard. I then used some Polka dotted Purple Patterned Paper I had from about 3 or 4 years ago. I believe it is SU. I used green for the leaves, and some Purple CS for the circle center. Last I added a Purple button to the middle. This button was in my button bin, and I don't think anyone knows how old it is...lol. I am one of those strange ones that saves the extra buttons from shirts and sweaters and puts them in my stash. So my thought for my giant Paperclip was a bookmark. So there you have it...a "Purple Polka dotted Posy Placemarker"! Bookmark just doesn't fit with the "P" theme...lol. Now it is your turn! Head on over to the Creative Belli Blog, and see what the other DT ladies have come up with using the letter "P". Then, link up your "P" project you create with stuff from your stash so we can check it out!

Very cute! I haven't altered mine yet, hadn't really thought about it, I might just have to do something with it now.
By the way, how is that book? I'm thinking of getting the series for my Nook.

Love that Purple Paperclip (try saying that 10 times fast. really, try it). You did such a cute job with it. I just got in from teaching scrapbooking at the library, and they had large paper clips at the front desk. The librarian said they are getting a lot of comments on them.
