Free your mind........

Morning lovelies.......happy Saturday.....hope you have a fun weekend planned! 
For today I have a tag shaped bookmark to share....I used to have  an English
 teacher called Mr Smart....but he was so NOT smart lol, he was the scruffiest 
fella I've ever met but he had a passion for books like you wouldn't believe & I 
thought he was fab.....and that passion has passed from me to 2 of my kids......2
 out of 6 isn't bad lol! He always used to tell us that reading would free
 your mind......hence the sentiment......a little tribute to Mr Smart wherever he is!
The gorgeous image is from The East Wind & all the little bits are from my
 stash, the torn pages are from a coffee damaged Dictionary so you might well
see more bits of pages popping up in my crafting......I hate waste lol.
Rightio, that's me for lots to do!
Thanks for calling......see you soon!

    I love books but unfortunately neither of my boys do, not for lack of me trying to encourage them though!

    Don't know if it is just my computer, I can't read any of your "text" it is very pale in colour as are the comments.

  10. Great bookmark Jo and I just love the sentiment too. I do love a good book and wish I spent more time reading instead of reading blogs! Blogs are far more unpredictable though, and far more sociable!
