Original Post

Here's the rules. Anyone is allowed to participate, but please, only post something new that you have created for the challenge.

This week's challenge idea is to be inspired by Scheherezade and 1001 Arabian nights. You can be inspired by any of the stories and create something from it.

I was actually inspired to use this idea by www.ebsqart.com

I thought it was such an amazing idea to use. It is one of their shows for this month so if you're a member I urge you to enter it when done. Here's the link to their explanation/show:

I'm going to give an extra week to complete this challenge so I will not post a new challenge until Monday, April 14th, though this is not a deadline.

I apologize again for being so late. I've gotten very busy here dealing with a lot of house/neighbor problems. I'm going to take care of this so I won't be late from now on.

Oh, this one will be challenging and fun! I think I'll need to ponder this one a little though.

lol. I know, Nancy, but when I saw it on EBSQ, I totally knew we had to do it for a challenge. I love fables and those kind of stories. Scheherezade and a 1001 Arabian nights has so many things that can be inspirational. I think it's going to be fun but could be tough hence the extra week.

Here's a couple of links I found to some of the stories:
mfx.dasburo.com/an/a_index_commented.html
www.arabiantales.org/
(I spent half the night reading the stories on that link)
www.wollamshram.ca/1001/index.htm

Maybe that will help. I really hope we can get a few people to participate. I would love to see as many stories as possible show up.

I can see I'm going to need the full 2 weeks for this one!

Btw-Thanks Nancy, for the "Modern Love" title for my box--I'm going to use it!

Marking this so I can find it. Haven't done any of the challenges lately but I still want to. Good to have two weeks though as us US people have to get taxes done if we are procrastinators like me! LOL!
