The Outlawz Friday Colouring Challenge Books and/or Reading

Good Morning and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge over at The Outlawz Friday Colouring Challenge. This week we are celebrating Read A Book Day on September 6th, so our challenge for you is to incorporate reading or books into your project this week.

I have always been a big reader ever since I was a kid. I constantly have a book on the go and try to read about 100 books every year. I don't always meet that target but I try! I am way behind this year though as I went through a phase early in the year where I wasn't reading very much, so I am only at 52 books so far. I will probably get 80 or so read by the end of December! project this week is an inspirational book stand image for my classroom to go on top of my bookcase to, hopefully, encourage the kids in my class to read! I used the gorgeous Fairy Tales image by Holly Durr @Sweet Pea Stamps along with a quote from All Booked Up by Papertrey Ink.
