Book It! Challenge Pinworthies And May Tag Friday Winner

Hello everyone, Deb here to announce our choices for the May Book It! challenge and for our May Tag Friday linkup!  As is always the case you did not make the Creative Guide's choices easy, so many amazing entries and we want to thank all of you for joining in our challenges.

First up, here are our Pinworthy picks for the Book It! challenge:

We adore how Jannet's wonderful cover opens up to reveal an amazing tea party diorama and who doesn't love Alice In Wonderland!

Cathy's amazing medical themed vintage book is incredibly detailed but the most wonderful part of all is how she dedicated it to her father-in-law who was a doctor.

The cover of Katrina's fab Dogs and Pups lap book has a wonderful vintage feel and her decision to donate it to a local dog rescue association (where she found her own beloved pup Luther!) was such a special and generous idea.

And our Tag Friday winner was:

Love that Beulah Bee used that wonderful vintage wedding photo and then showcased it so perfectly inside the Idea-ology Lace Frame with that lovely floral lace stamp and Perfect Pearls!

Congratulations to all our amazingly talented winners, we will be sending you your AVJ Pinworthy badges to display on your blogs very soon.

Thanks again to everyone who entered our May challenges and we hope that you will also enter our current Tissue Paper challenge for a chance to win your very own Pinworthy badge!  Thanks as always for stopping by today and happy creating,

Deb and the Creative Guides
