A very Christmassy Child's Play Blog Hop 
Last Stop on the blog Hop after admiring the lovely and talented Rita's work  but you have made it!! yay!!
- (you know I am last not because I'm special, but because I like to leave things until the last minute - this I'm afraid, is no exception....)

The DT girls have made their Christmas Lists and we're hoping Santa will leave all sorts of fun goodies under the tree. And in true Child's Play Challenge form, we're scrapping about those toys too!! (If you get lost along the way, you can head on over to Child's Play Challenges for the master list.)

I am a very disappointed girl if I don't get a book under the tree - One of my first chapter books I received was one of the Anne of Green Gables series - I had made Mum's originals my own and desperately needed the rest - finishing with Rilla of Ingleside 

This year I am guaranteed at least one book (that I purchased myself..) and I do know my main pressie and it will involve the purchase of many more - I will say no more as it will ruin the surprise for me (ok, so I may have gone and helped pick it out with Geoff and maybe loaded some things onto it ready for Chrissy but I will say no more...)

Now to make things more fun, and I love giving our pressies, I have my own little gift to give one lucky person somewhere -

to go into the draw just leave me a comment on your fav book, or maybe what book is next on your list to read or anything booky really. And I would love it if you would become a follower over at Child's Play, we want lots more people to come and play, such a fun challenge site! That's it.

For the rest of the blog hop there is a cracking prize Tiffany is offering -
Here's what you need to do to enter:
1-check out each blog along the hop and leave a comment so we know you were there!
2-post about the hop on your blog
3-link your post on our special "Blog Hop" linky in the sidebar by December 31st
4-BONUS!! Create a layout based on any of the DTs inspiration items and post that link for a second entry!!
Now, I would of course love love love for you to be a follower of my blog too- I'm on 8 different design teams, so you never know what kind of inspiration I have up my sleeve!!

Have fun!!

Oh my... Such an elegant LO! So pretty and soft! Simply loving it! So I'm guessing by now its safe to say you got some sort of ereader for christmas?!? I got a Kindle last year, it is constantly attached to my hand... Lol...
I too am a book lover! My favs are Legal Thrillers... Eg- Patricia Cornwell, John Grisham and James Patterson!!
I'm sure yone of your other DT's may have already told you, but incase not, I'm going to let you in on a secret, on the 6th Jan Lasting Memories is opening its 2013 year of challenges with one I'm sure you'll be very interested in!! :)
Thanks for sharing!! Toni... :)

Karen now you've got me thinking - a book to read - there are so many but my favs are the oldies and so I think I'll get another Agatha Christie probably a Poirot Classic to pour over! If I'm lucky I find them in a charity/thrift shop and this makes them even more pleasurable.
