Bookstagram Challenge September 2017 - Instagram Monthly Photo Challenge

Can you smell Autumn yet?  I love the sun, but the scents of Autumn are my favorite... the change of the season is just so amazing...

And since it's almost a new month, it's time to start talking about September's bookstagram challenge.

This month was a bit crazy, so our challenge is a little different.  We are taking a break from some of the more involved prompts, but we will bring back some folding prompts next time, I promise.  Feel free to do as many of these prompts as you want, jump in, jump out... just make sure to use the hashtag so we can see your lovely photos!

We changed up some of our game days to tag days, so on those days feel free to join in the fun and tag some of your friends to join us. 

I hope you will join in... just follow me on Instagram and check it out! And please follow my lovely co-hosts - they are super sweet, you will love them, I promise!
