It's that time of year... Back to school

We actually won't start until almost (or even the day after) Labor Day, so we still have a couple of weeks of our summer left! :)  The joys of home schooling!!

But I know some places have already started or are starting this week, so with great sympathy for them, here is my 'back to school' project!  Altered note books are fun, easy, and the possibilities are endless!!   I'll give this to my 10th grader for one of her subjects. 

Challenges...
~Celebrate the occasion - back to school
~Whimsical Wednesday - back to school but not a card






What I used:
~Composition note book (only $.40!!)
~Kraft paper to cover the book
~Basic Grey Recess paper
~black corrugated paper
~houndstooth stamp
~'my notes' Pooh font
~brads and ribbon from my stash

Thanks for looking!!!!
