Back to School Challenge at CRAFT

Good morning well it is nearly time for the children to go back to school if they havent already.
So what better challenge than for CRAFT to pick the theme
we have some wonderful and generous sponsors again this week
So lots to play for.
For my project I decided to decorate at cheap note book i got from a local supermarket
The image is from Bugaboo and is BIG BOOKS BOY available from the shop here

The sentiment came with the image.
I have coloured the image with my promarkers
The DP is a free download found on my computer sorry not sure where from and i have used Distressed inks on the edges.
Matted onto Green card and then glued to the front of the note pad.
Didnt embellish it too much just adding some sequin stars as it will slide into my nephew bag along with many other books so wanted to keep it flush.
Dont think you can have enough little note books do you.
Well now it is your turn we would love you to share your makes with us this could be a card or project or even a scrapbook page. Maybe a 1st day at school
