Hi there! If you've ever visited my blog before, you'll probably already know that I am a voracious reader! Books are one of my greatest loves :)
And I just think this world was made so much brighter thanks to Dr. Suess ~
I think every day should be a little Suess-ical!
So imagine my glee when LJ's (our hostess this month!) Dueling Darling kit arrived in my mailbox with the wonderful theme:
January is "Book Blitz Month".....use a stamp with books and/or reading as a theme. We would also like to then add in your post who your favorite author is, or your favorite book and why.
:::: Squeal! ::::
I just love this kit so much! Thank you, LJ! The Dueling Darlings are back again! The Divas received this wonderful image & papers and I tried to use as much of the dsp that you sent, along with a small card which reminded me of the library cards of the past :) *Raise your hand if you remember the library card catalog file drawers!* I chose the stamped image in rich cocoa to keep the colors uniform and added the leftover smaller pieces to the inside, keeping it blank. I adore this image + old fashioned look to it :)

Answering who my favorite author is a little bit tricky for me ;)
That's like asking which of my 4 is my favorite child, LOL!! (I jest!)
Being an English Lit minor in under-grad college, I adore authors like
Charlotte Brontë and Jane Austen ...
I secretly grew up wanting to marry Mr. Darcy :) *swoon*
A few from my list of favorite authors:
I love books that make me cry (Nicholas Sparks, Kristin Hannah),
books that I can't put down: (Suzanne Collins, John Green, John Hart)
books that make a statement: (Jodi Picoult, Mitch Albom, Lauren Oliver)
books with a foreign theme: (Lisa See, Adriana Trigiana)
I could go on and on!
But instead, how about you see what my team Divas created using this identical image and paper! You can find them in my sidebar as well as the girls of team Dazzlers! You won't be disappointed!
