This one is a little bit different. I can’t take credit for it since a friend of mine came up with it (and I think she found it somewhere else). It is very challenging! At least I thought so! The idea is to take a children’s book that you really love and use it as inspiration for your layout. Here I used the book Popcorn by Frank Acsh:



And came up with this layout:




I am sure that your layouts will be fabulous. Have fun!!

This one was hard for me to do. I had to read through a book and try to think of the pics I had. I used Dr. Suess' One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish. I took a quote from one of the pages. "We saw him sit and try to cook." I took the colors from the page, red, teal, light purple and off white.

Here's the page from the book:


And here's my page:

I used A's favorite book when he was 2, Moo Baa, La La La by Sandra Boynton (she is AMAZING!).





I love all the books you guys picked! Jerusha, I forgot about that book! I read it when I was little, I wonder if I can find it for my boys to read!

I chose the book "The Snowy Day" by Ezra Jack Keats. I decided to base it off a page from the book.

This is a great challenge! I'm late on it, I know. Jonah is trying all sorts of new foods, so I think I am going to do a page based on the Very Hungry Caterpillar I have so many projects going on now, I hope I can get it started this week!
