Challenge #5: Charlotte's Web

Your next challenge is to be inspired by this children's classic by E.B. White.

Here's what the DT did. Show us what you can do and you'll win a fabulous prize! :)

Julie: She chose to use some of the web words and the theme of friendship.
I love how whimsical her page is!

Kimmy: I was inspired by the trip to the fair in the book... I used lyrics from the classic animated movie. (Yes I realize I got one of the words wrong! oops!)

Lori was inspired by the theme of friendship. She also used a fabulous quote from the book!
Lou was inspired by the words of praise in Charlotte's web. Instead of Some Pig... it's Some Kid!
And isn't he a cutie? Couldn't you just eat him up?

Some ideas to help you get started....
Charlotte's "Web words" : Terrific, Humble, Some ____, Radiant
Spider webs or farm animals in your design
Theme: friendship, farms, bugs, the fair, missing someone
Technique: colored pencil drawings

You are not limited to these ideas, they are just a springboard.
The rest is up to you! have fun with it.

Again, it doesn't have to be a LO, it can be a card, altered art project,or something else!

Please link your projects to this post by August 8th for your chance at the prize.

The Winner is....

Peggy!! We all loved your Clifford page! Email me and I'll send along your gift certificate!

The next challenge will be posted later tonight! :D
