Challenge: BOOKS

This theme is going to be BOOKS! I want to see you, dh/so, or LOs reading. Smile This is my favorite thing to do (other then scrapbook) so i thought it would be cool to do one. Smile

The dead line for this one will also be June 28th...which is also my birthday. Biggrin

Here's mine. I was excited about this challenge topic because I had taken some pictures of Madison reading a few weeks ago and I didn't know how I would use them. -Lisa (For some reason, the pictures are coming out grainy. Does anyone know how to fix that because it doesn't look that way in the original file? Nevermind. I fixed it.)

Here's mine. I have to say this is one of my all time favorites, so thanks for this challange. I had this idea of using stencils, but was afraid of cutting the pictures up. I looked for ideas in 2 stores and came back to this. I did it yesterday while Karl was napping. It look close to 2 hours. I think that's the longest I have ever worked on one page...:)
