Challenge #18 - Reading

THE CHALLENGE: This is Barbara here, hosting the challenge this week and I have one of my favorites to share... READING. The challenge is all about reading and books! But don't worry, if you don't have any reading images just head on over to Elizabeth O Dulemba's free coloring pages and grab a favorite! To open up the theme a little more, you can also create any project which is inspired by a story or even make a fun book marker.

THE PRIZE: There is no company sponsor this week but I can't let you go on without providing some kind of prize!! I am always on a lookout for new images that feature reading and I'm ready for you to surprise me! So I'll let this week's winner choose any 3 cards from my site to receive in the mail! (Provided they haven't already been used, of course.) It will be easy... either use an image that might be new to me and/or simply recommend a link to a stamp sold online in your descriptions. A random winner will be selected from entries that do one or both of these options!

Check out what the rest of the design team has made to inspire you...

THE RULES: Remember the rules are posted on the sidebar and entries must be submitted by Saturday evening. Enjoy creating and I can't wait to see what you make!

Sponsor Spotlight on Limited Runs

Limited Runs is no stranger to sponsoring Lollipop Crafts and they are once again being so generous with their sponsorship. 

Let's hear what Nikki, the owner, has to say.

"I've started doing more paper crafts within the last Year and have found it to be very addictive and slowly it's been getting larger. Creating Digi's just happened to be a blend of using my drawing and computer graphix together to create "Limited Runs"which is my little digital stamp store. I've also started Freebie Fridays and will be doing this for a Limited time too.Each may be posted from 1 day to ??? (Limited Time Offer) May you all enjoy my digi's as much as I love to make them. SO if your looking for some YUMMY cupcakes I've got over 50 Varieties to choose from and lots more with more always in the works".

Don't forget that there will be 4 winners this week, each receiving digis from Limited Runs -- our winner picked by random.org and each of our top 3 picks. 

Thanks again to Limited Runs for being such a fabulous sponsor.
