Fly My Pretties, Fly

France is our Hostess for the Stampotique challenge this week and she has asked us to use our favourite book as our inspiration, Now I have several books that have been favourites since childhood, but I have had a little bit of a thing for Monkeys lately so I opted for The Wizard Of Oz, simply so I had the perfect excuse to use Janets lovely flying monkey. I used pages from a damaged copy of the book as the start of my background for my page.

This is what France has to say about her challenge and why she chose this theme.

"Hi! My name is France and I'm a bookworm. No doubt there are a lot of other bookworms among our lovely Stampotiquers.

I would like to know about your favorite books. So my challenge for you, should you accept it, is to create a piece, inspired by your favorite book. Let the story, the title, the cover, a quote inspire you! Now you might have a problem choosing your all time favorite book, don't worry, it's not like you are writing it in stone, just pick one. Or maybe your problem is that you don't like reading at all. Here is how to cheat: go for your favorite film based on a book, we won't tell ;)))"
I used the following Stamps

The full details of the Challenge for the month can be seen HERE.

Stampotique Rubber Stamps are available to buy from Stampotique originals .

I hope you get a chance to join in this week, Carol x
