FEBRUARY Challenge #19 Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

This is the month for chocolate (and love!!!) 

This was such a fun book to read!!! I really loved it as a child and then as a teacher, reading it to my class. 

Guest designer this month is Mia!!

 Hello! I am Mia. I am married to a wonderful husband and work as a senior scientific officer in the public sector in Athens, the capital of Greece. I love animals and I have canaries and cats.

I love art journaling, mixed media, and even digital creations. While I love coloring and making cute, elegant, vintage or romantic paper crafts, I often use non-traditional colors or try different styles or techniques. I also add collage and drawing, making quirky images.

I am a multi-crafter and enjoy painting, sewing, stitching, crocheting, and making jewelry and cosmetics. I also love writing poems and taking photos of nature (sky, sea, flowers, trees and critters). You may see my creations on my blog, Craftartista.

Here's Mia's awesome creation.

Here's what I created, a gift box to hold some Kisses!

Let the story theme, the cover, the layout of the cover, the color scheme (USUALLY not just one color, unless the story permits it!) inspire you to get creative!!!

Here are the Tops for Challenge #18!
