Children's books!

I was convinced I'd already confessed how much I liked reading children's books, and shared this photo:


But I can't find a post about it anywhere, so I guess I imagined it? Anyway, I do love reading children's books... I finally turned the photo into a page for my I Have To Confess album:


I used pages from an old copy of Alice in Wonderland for the title, border, flower and leaves, crumpling each piece before die-cutting or punching or rolling or hand-cutting it. The library card was a free printable from Shimelle and the pocket from a free template by Creature Comforts. I plan to add the names of some of my favourite kid's authors to the library card next time I get my typewriter out!


I kind of wish I'd used some distress ink or something so the book pages stand out a bit more, but oh well...

Lovely layout!

Me too... I just finished reading Tom's Midnight Garden, Little Women, Jack and Jill (by Lousia May Alcott as well), Pollyanna... now I'm reading Anne of Avonlea.

Some of the best books ever written are children's books; but almost every great children's book has so much in it for adults too.

You can officially add my name to your confession because I am a die hard childrens books fan. I think I need to make this page too, so thanks for the inspiration.
