Make my Monday - Book cover Inspiration

Wow its that day again the one that comes round way to quick!!

Well i hope you all had a lovely weekend, i certainly did my weekend started Friday this week as myself and the rest of our SU team travelled up to Telford for the Stampin Up Regional training on Saturday. On Friday we had a enjoyable drive up and a nice relaxing afternoon at the hotel much was spent specualting about what saturday would involve and what juicy exciting news they would share with us.... One thing i LOVE about being a Stampin Up demonstrator is seeing and getting to play with new exciting products before there general release... you could have this too if you signed up as a Demonstrator...
On Saturday... we started by swapping and sharing our creations.... i will share my swap with you tomorrow... i made 108 swaps and came back with as many swaps all made by other very talented demonstrators, i have a box full of amazing ideas... we then went and sat at our tables and the Training began its a day packed full of Inspiring stories from other demos, tips and gorgeous projects designed by Stampin Up... We were all given a free stamp set too - and oh boy its yummy i cant wait to share it with you soooooooooon 
We had a very yummy lunch followed by exciting news about NEW products hitting the new Catalogue coming in july I really cant wait to share all the exciting news with you....

And heres my card.... I was inspired by the colours and Black silhouette 

This week Mynette has provided the challenge - its a literacy inspiration challenge, Mynette has chosen another one of her favourite books--Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte.  Choose to be inspired by the book cover or the story line or both!
