Circle Journal - Once Upon A Time ...

My latest completed project - a CJ on a storybook theme. Hosted by the lovely Jas, I got to do her entry first. Her book is stunning (sadly I don't have pictures) and so the book sat here for a month with me just looking at it, being too afraid to start on it, and putting it away again!  Well, I eventually got around to it and here are the results.

Jas asked for stories from out childhood, so my first was The Little Mermaid by Hans Christen Andersen. It was one of my favourite fairy tales from my childhood and I was lucky enough to see the statue in Copenhagen when I was eleven.

My second entry was for the science fiction novel Chocky by John Wyndham. Published in the year that I was born it introduced me to the world of science fiction which I still love today. My eldest daughter thought my entry looked like a logo for the rugby world cup but it stayed in anyway!

Yhe text on the left is part of a little mini book where I copied the blurb from the back, for anyone who hasn't read the book.

Thanks for looking and have a great day.
