Children’s Stories Challenge Jan 30th – Feb 1st


Tomorrow I see Robert. Today has gone reasonably quickly. I may choose different photographs for the cover than what is in the story. See how the wordsearches are going with Robert. Get in touch with friends again about baseball photographs and try Publisher for picture of baseball field as is a good picture with field player positions and clarity. I will be back on the blog this Sat. Have a great end of week and weekend. Madonna

Children’s Stories Challenge Jan 29th


January is almost finished. Its a challenge doing the cover of my book. Choosing two photographs that go side by side relating to colour, layout and balance on the page. The front has Dusty the horse with cart and the fish tangram next to it with some white around it. The rest has dark green background. The colours of the photographs need to suit the background. Its great there is a preview button to see how it looks. I am thinking of putting a wordsearch picture and either a cave or beach, water and drawn camping tents and swag. Be doing more Thurs on finding wordsearch to add picture and also getting ready to go away and come back with my husband Robert. I need to sleep. Good work keeping up with your projects. Madonna

Children’s Stories Challenge Jan 28th


I have been working on the front and back cover of my book. The front page allows for 3 different pictures on the bottom part of the page and the front page allows me to put in 3 different pictures compared to the front page. Trying to put activity pictures on as well as characters and maybe an animal picture as well. The name of the book and author name is in white as stands out from the colour. The title My Own Children’s Stories with Activites. Bye until tomorrow. Madonna
