I decided to ink up Reading Millie again! I love any stamps that have to do with reading so this one has earned itself a spot in my "frequently used stamps" basket, haha! I did some paper-piecing on her book this time, I think it's a fun book cover, kind of like what I used to do to my books in junior high:)
The papers are from Fly a Kite by OA.

Here's the hop list, you're next stop is the wonderful Cindy Haffner! Thanks for stopping by today!

The paper piecing on the book LOOKS great, but I loved it even more when you said it was like a book cover! I'm a teacher, so I'm all too familiar with the world of book covers and book socks!
