Thursday Treats – Reading 1/13

As the month of January moves on, we’re delighted to see more of our Sweet Shoppe Community members participating in the This or That? Challenges! Our new monthly challenge-and-reward system really seems to be stoking your creative fires, and we’re hearing from many of you that you love having choices for each of the challenges.

For example, This or That Challenge #10a asks you to Scrap about the last TV show you binge-watched. We covered this topic in our December 30th Thursday Treats about TV & Movie Marathons, so if you’re looking for kit ideas, that’s a great place to start. But if you’d rather, Option 10b asks you to scrap about the last book you couldn’t put down. So for today’s Thursday Treats, I dove into the Shoppe and pulled together some products to help you complete this challenge instead.

Be sure to read to the bottom of this post, where you’ll find quotes about books and reading you can include on your next scrapbook layout!
