Well I love this, its such a super comforting trip down memory lane and new pathways. Thank you all so much for your pages and sorry for the delay getting it up here,

so heres the covers, intro and sign in pages

and here's my own pages - The Faraway Tree
Maria's favourite childhood books 005-4

Tina did 'ballet shoes' and I haven't read this book but it sounds intriguing so I plan to look out for a copy
Maria's favourite childhood books 006-1

Ruth did 'the land of far beyond' and again, this is new to me but I am enchanted by the sound of it. I specifically adored the way Ruth has done this, particularly the stamping on the ribbon and the glorious illustrations, which I assume are in the book

Kate did a smashing layout of 'Milly Molly Mandy' and it included the whole of one story, so I read that and it was just as delightful as I remember.
Maria's favourite childhood books 012-3

Cynthia touched my heart by doing 'Little Black Sambo' - a personal favourite and I had this out of the library time and time again. I remember that picture of the tiger with the umbrella on his tail like it was yesterday and was glad she included my favourite bit about the tigers turning into Ghi.
Maria's favourite childhood books 014-1

Call of the 'Wild by Sue' is another book I remember well and love, and Sue has done it so beautifully. I remember being outraged that this could happen to someones pet.
Maria's favourite childhood books 016-1

Gillian did 'Pippi Longstocking' and whilst I have heard of this, I have never read it. Strangely it kept cropping up in the Millenium books I have just read and I wouldnt have understood the references if I hadnt seen this. Gillian, I havent seen much of your work but this is beautiful

Kim did another favourite of mine,with 'Gullivers Travels' and her entry had lots of lovely intereactive bits like maps and treasure chests - very touchy feely this one was.
Maria's favourite childhood books 021-1

Lorraine came next and made an abolutely beautiful job of 'Black Beauty' which I have always loved and still do. I love the book, I love this layout and the fact that BB got included, I feared it might not because it was done before so I am grateful.
Maria's favourite childhood books 022-1

next was Helen and another very favourite - the one and only Winnie the Pooh. Great entry Helen and again, I am glad this didnt get left out as I am so partial to Pooh and think it wasted on the young!
Maria's favourite childhood books 027-1

Karelyn's entry was brilliant, i swooned over the moon charm before I even saw anything else and as well as including some memorable stories, Karelyn wrote one herself and it was brilliant and it kind of encapsulates what this whole CJ was about. Well done Karelyn, I love it

and last but defintiely not least, one of my favourite people and probably my favourite books of all was Steph, who did Enid Blyton and the famous five and the secret seven. A huge subject and of course Steph did it justice.

It was an absorbing topic, it's lovely and I'm glad I had chance to take part in this one. Looks wonderful all together.

youd never guess how much this one traumatised me when i got it .i think i explained at the time that we were never given or encouraged to read books by our folks so a favourite book was not on my list .i did always like and remember gullivers travels from school though so did that .its turned out to be a wonderful cj maria

You needn't have worried about Black Beauty Maria because that was going to
be my book, but when I saw it had gone (I knew it would be) it was a toss
up between the Blyton books and the Alice books.
Your CJ took me back years and years - thank you.

Oh its lovely. I loved the Wishing chair and the Faraway Tree too. In fact I loved most of EB books. I used to save up for them out of my pocket money. They were sixpence each,lol.

I loved all the Enid Blyton books too, I also now remember Little Black Sambo, one of my faves too, had forgotten all about him, Tina picked Ballet Shoes which would have been my alternative. The ribbon isn't stamped, well not by me anyway, all I got was an inky mess when I tried it. It's DCWV Fairytale ribbon, the papers are from the same range
