MARCH Challenge #20 The Cat In The Hat

 This month, the book is this wonderful story!!

There are three wonderful guest designers this month!!

Hello friends!  My name is Vicki and I'm thrilled to be a guest on here!  I've been paper crafting for several years and have enjoyed creating cards.  I also love to create art journals, make mixed media projects as well as many other crafty things!  My husband retired a few years ago and we enjoy our time together as we try and get some traveling time as much as we can.   I've always enjoyed reading and had many favorite books as a child.  This is a fun challenge to combine two things that I enjoy together!  I hope you can stop by and visit my blog Stamped Smiles!

I am recently retired.
Still not enough time in the day for things I want to do!
I live in Southern BC, Canada with my mom.
I volunteer in town; spend the rest of my time looking after the meals, house & yard.
I find time each day to craft; I like entering different challenges. Most times they are a CHALLENGE! I learn new techniques and a LOT of them make me think outside my comfort zone!
I am honored to be a guest designer for Once Upon A Time.

Hello, artisans!!! I've been dabbling in different fine arts and practical arts since age six when I started piano lessons! I took 9 years of weekly lessons!! At age 10 I added clarinet and bass clarinet but haven't played since high school. At age nine my arts and crafts, culinary, and sewing skills began. My mom was very supportive to have me try all sorts like making candles, cross-stitch, liquid embroidery, decoupage, flower arranging, etc. And she believed in helping her in the kitchen prepping and cleaning for meals. In high school and college I was an active member of yearbook staffs and I think that is part of the reason why I love blog posting my paper-crafted creations. Thanks very much Deanne for this opportunity to be a Guest Designer!

...and here's my project.

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 #19!
