First off, let me just say that this was all gozer's idea.  (Love her!)  However, the art is mine....

I made bookmarks to sneak into books in the public library. I drew the picture, added color (can I just say that I LOVE artist chalks?), then scanned and copied.  Then re-chalked, coz the scanner kind of washed out the background. Yeah, you are seeing the washed out version, unfortunately.  The final product is much more vibrant.  The pic you see was scanned prior to being laminated, they have all been laminated now.  I made 30 of them.  I'm going to use some post-it flags to stick on them saying that they get to keep the bookmark.

Thanks!  I was pretty happy with the way it turned out, even though my art skills are still pretty fledgling...
