What do you say?

The theme over on the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge is "What do you say?"  It's been a while since I wrote anything or made a mini-book, so this week I took the opportunity to write a kind of morality tale, in poem form, and make a little book out of it.

There are far too many pages to say what I did on each of them but I will include a supply list at the end of the post!







Supplies I used included:


Our ever-generous sponsor Simon Says Stamp is offering a $50 gift voucher as the prize again this week, just make something for the challenge and you could the winner! The winner will be chosen at random from those who enter the challenge, so why not give it a try? At the very least why not head over to the Challenge Blog to see how the other members of the design team have interpreted this weeks theme! :)

This is gorgeous... not just the design (which I love... the pictures are almost like a grungy take on comic book art) but also the poetry and the tale it tells.

Thanks for sharing! :)

Stunning! I don't know where to start with this one -- the witty poem, the deliciously dark tone, the way you've created rich yet stark imagery. This is just so "Dan" and such an achieved piece. Wonderful!
