Kid Lit 411 entry - sketches

I will be sending off my submission for the contest for the Kid Lit page tonight.  I won't share the final image until the winners are announced, but here are some really rough thumbs and sketches as I put together my idea.  I have been looking for a new logo I can put on business cards, and if my piece doesn't place I think I want to use a small part of it for the new logo, so either way it's a win for me.  Wishing you all a pleasant Sunday, for myself I'm about to go outside with the kids and do some sledding.
