DISign Help!

Hello everyone! A while back I posted regarding a summer reading program challenge I issued to the kids at work. If they read 50,000 minutes I would dye my hair. Well we've got the rest of the week to go and they are up to 47,759 minutes so I think they'll reach my challenge- and my hair will be pink.

I'd like to make a shirt that says:

Bottle Of Hair Dye - $12.99
Custom Shirt - $8.99
Trip to Disney World - $1,200
Dying My Hair Because My Kids Read 50,000 Minutes in 42 Days - Priceless

But all my designs have turned out blah.

I'm hoping that all the talented and creative folks here would be willing to help me create a nifty design for a shirt. I would prefer it to have a rounded background (rounded squares are fine, just no pointy squares) and be fun and cheerful. It doesn't have to be Mickey themed. The shirt I have to use for a transfer is mint green (can post a photo if desired). The wording can be changed if you have a better suggestion as well. Thank you so much in advance!

Here is a quick design, I can tweak anything, the font I don't care for, just an idea. The green background is just to give you an idea on your shirt.

WOW! These are so great! I ♥ Mr. Incredible with pink hair!

Belle is perfect! I love that you found a picture of her with a book and then made her hair pink. Especially the whole library tie in.

Thank you both so much! I think I'm going to try and find a couple more shirts, so I can make multiple shirts.

Especially since it's now definite that I'll be dying my hair. After two more kids they are up to 48,500 minutes- with two days to go!

AWESOME JOB by all the kids!!! What a fun way to challenge them!! I am a HUGE advocate of reading--- especially in the summer when they're not in school!

Two things- First I wanted to post their final total. As of our finale party yesterday they had 59,821 minutes!

Second- Marion, I was wondering if you could do another quick disign for me... I would like to put their total on the back of the shirt with the disign you made me, but I want the fonts to match. I would love for it to say (centered):
59,821 minutes
Chesley Memorial Library
New Hampshire
(I debated on the town, and then decided to keep it out for safety reasons).
I know you are super busy, but would really appreciate if if you could. Thanks in advance!

I love that you did this to challenge the kids to read this summer! I feel so lucky that my DD8 loves to read! Pink just might be your signature color!

So, how long will you keep your hair pink? Is that another challenge read-a-thon for the kids?
