It's adults-only in this challenge - our book is raunchy 80's blockbuster Hollywood Wives by Jackie Collins.  Think glamour and luxury or be inspired by the cover's poolside scene,the diamond above the 'i' or the Hollywood movie industry. 

Here's how The Librarian interpreted the challenge:

Librarian's Choice - Challenge 9 - Where the Wild Things Are

Before I show you my choice, I just want to say that there are some amazing crafters who visit the library almost every challenge and whose wonderful, imaginative creations I could happily showcase every time. I hope you know how much I appreciate you. 

Here's the Librarian's choice for Where The Wild Things Are. 

Firstly, two wonderful cards that perfectly evoke the cover:







Finally, great use of the 'wild thing' theme for this lovely z-fold card:

The library challenge has reached double figures so it's time for (I think) an easy challenge - even if you haven't read the book,  The book is The Rose Garden by Susanna Kearsley. It's a time travel romance set in Cornwall and it's got roses, gardens, smugglers and a teashop - just to give you some ideas!

Librarian's Choice - Challenge 8 - Breakfast at Tiffany's


So many fabulous entries into this challenge - so agonising to pick just a few. 

Sherri made a clean and simple city scene with just a touch of Tiffany blue. 



Lynne paid tribute to the cover, but with a cute and fun twist. 


Linby jokes that she has the 'national collection of New York fashionista stamps' and she put them to great use here. 

I hope you will copy the badge (above) to your blogs.

The current challenge - Where the Wild Things Are  - is still open for another week and also I'll be back tomorrow with challenge 10 - a time-travel romance with a floral title.

Reminder from The Library (and a hint about Challenge 10)

According to a new study, the hallowed practice of bedtime reading is falling by the wayside — and that some quarter of a million children do not own a single book. This is a terrible shame, as regular bedtime stories have been shown to increase children’s performance in school, and are also awesome and can help create strong lifetime bonds, both with literature and with parents.

Here's a little reminder from The Library - but your books aren't overdue and there'll certainly be no fines! 

It's just a reminder to join in the current challenge - 'Where the Wild Things Are'  - which runs till June 30th . 

Challenge 8 starts on Sunday June 24th and is a time-travel romance with a floral title.
