Challenge 107... Books and Stories

Good Morning! Can you believe it’s September already?! I just don’t know where the year is going.

I’d like to say a big hello to all our new Cupcake Lovers. It’s so nice to see you. And of course, thanks to everyone who played with us last week. What a fantastic turn out. Looks like you love digitals. Well; what’s not to love about stash you can get into the house without anyone noticing?! ;)

Talking of getting stash into the house, we’ve decided that Cupcake Madness is a good thing. So from now on, each month, we will be giving you the chance to win not just weekly prizes, but a monthly prize too: All you’ll need to do, is enter at least two different Cupcake challenges within a calendar month…

This week, Chic Catherine has chosen our theme. With the children all back in school, we thought we’d mark the occasion with:

***Books and Stories ***

Got a favourite book or story? Do you have an image (you know the one you love, but haven’t used yet?!) of someone reading? Are you forever losing your page in the latest blockbuster you're reading? Whatever, we’d like to see projects related to reading or a story you like.

You have until Sunday 12 September… 8pm GMT to place your entry for this challenge.


There are multiple winners again this week! We have a winner for last weeks sponsored challenge, we’ve drawn a winner for our Cupcake Madness August monthly sponsor and we’ve also chosen our Top 5... here are the winners:
