Thank you Kidlit 411

Hi All,

In earlier blogs, I wrote about the process for creating my illustration for the Kidlit 411banner contest.  I was thrilled to hear that I was awarded an honorable mention!

Thank you Kidlit 411! Here is a link to their site. It’s a wonderful resource for writers and illustrators.

There were so many wonderful entries. The announcement is below. I’ll receive an Illustrator Spotlight in May, which I’ll write more about later.  Here is the announcement, and thanks for everyone’s support!
