100 Word Challenge

I was reading a book one day when suddenly I saw ... me dancing on top of a cloud in unicorn land. But I was a bit puzzled because I was reading 'Dancing in Unicorn Land.'   I looked down, flowers and the horns of the unicorns shining bright like small diamonds. I wished that I could stay but I had to go back but I did not know how to. It looked like I was staying here. I was a bit happy with the result but how did I get here from that book. Was it magical?

My Pepeha

I worked really hard on my pepeha art.  I found it really hard for my hands to keep coloring consistently. It was also hard to to think of my interests. My favorite part of my art was that I used lots of colors and made it stand out.
