Our little bookworm - Challenge #32 - 613 Avenue Create with Lacy Sunshine

Well the weekend is nearly over, I managed to get to Saturday craft yesterday and catch up with my friends who I haven't seen since before our holiday to Vietnam. My back is still not quite right and I can easily put myself backwards doing the simplest things like hanging out washing or carrying groceries. I came home yesterday to find hubby in bed, he had been working and ended up being quite ill with food poisoning we think. He has had a cold but is now quite worse so LOL, I am trying to avoid him as much as possible as I know that I will catch it easily after all the sickness I've had recently.
The door handle on the bathroom has been playing up and I've been saying someone was going to get locked in soon. Thursday night we went out for two of our children's birthdays and Adrian hopped in the shower to get ready and LOL he couldn't get out of the bathroom. He had to force his way out with a pair of scissors. He took the handle off altogether so today I went down to the hardware store and bought a replacement and put it in myself. Privacy at last from any of the kids dropping in and not checking if someone is in there!!!
Anyway, I had better get on and share my DT card for 613 Avenue Create this week. We have two teams and my turn is today. Our sponsor this week is Lacy Sunshine and the theme is Anything Goes with the Optional Twist of using a school supply (pencils, staples etc)  I've used a star shaped paperclip.

I've been wanting to try a circular sidestep card for a while. I attempted one a few months ago and messed it up so I tried again and am pleased with this one, it actually sits properly.
Here it is...... I thought I could add a name to the little report card tag later when I give this to my oldest granddaughter who loves to read.

SU Early Espresso Cardstock
DP is from Prima Marketing 6x6 paper pad  - Forever Yound
Image is Eleanor Bookworm from Lacy Sunshine - I coloured her and then cut around her leaving a tiny edge of white so I could get the little curls and the shoelaces in.
