Challenge #3 The Monster at the End of this Book

Welcome to October and our new book inspiration!!!
A favorite, for sure, for some! I LOVED reading it to my boys!!!

So, let the story theme, the cover, the layout of the cover, the color scheme (not just one color!) inspire you to get creative!!!

We have a guest designer for another month!!

It's Erin Simpson!

Here's a little about Erin!


Hello!  I'm Erin Simpson and I'm really excited to be a guest designer this month for the Once Upon a Time Challenge Blog!  I love crafts of all kinds, although I mostly focus on card making. I enjoy my quiet time making cards while listening to podcasts or music. I try to do something crafty each day, even if it is only organizing supplies or cleaning up after finishing a project. I currently call Michigan home but in my heart, I'll always be a California girl. I have three kids that keep me busy. My daughter is in her first year of college and my two wild boys are in high school and middle school. In addition to my three kids, we are also hosting an exchange student from Germany.  As a family, we love to hike, camp, and explore the outdoors.

Here is my blog link- Daily Dose of Crafts and my instagram link.

(If you'd like to be a guest designer, see the link in the sidebar to contact me!!)

Here's her monstrously adorable project.

Thanks, Erin, for being our guest designer for the last 2 months!
