Explore through reading!!

It's Friday! You all know what that means! Time for another challenge over at Just Magnolia and hAngler and we have a  fabulous sketch my my talented friend Bev. At Fussy and Fancy our theme is Back to School. I didn't have any school Tilda's and I REALLY wanted to use this Chess Tilda which I got at the best Magnolia store EVER, Magnolia-licious! Anywho.. I was searching and searching for a digi stack of books and of course I found nothing! So I thought I'd give it a shot and draw my own.. and I did and hear they are! I sketched in pencil and then traced in my Copic multiliner pen, then colored them in. What do you think? I just love to read and with my kiddos back in school I have quite a bit of time waiting for them to get out of school so I sit in my car and read. If I want to get a good parking spot I have to come about 30 minutes beofore the school gets out. It's ridiculous, but at least I get some quality time with my Nook!
Before I sign off I wanted to share with you an Exclusive Magnolia Stamp. You will ONLY be able to get from Magnolia-licious and supplies are limited so get yours today!!!
