What every your favorite stories as a child we would like you to use them to help inspire your next project. You can alter the actual book or create a altered piece of art representative of something from the story or how about a piece with an "altered ending to your story?" You are only limited by your imagination.

Now this week we also have a treat for you as we are welcoming the very talented Ellie to join us as a guest Designer from Holland this week.

  1. It looks as if this is a difficult theme?!

  2. The most difficult part is choosing a book I think, I saw this theme and loved it, but can't choose which book to begin with...it's got me thinking though!
