Back to school notebook


Happy weekend!!!!  Well today I am lucky enough to be the Hostess for BOTH the Just us Girls challenge AND for Kraftin Kimmie!!!  At first I freaked out that I'd signed up for both on the same day, but then thought, "hey, 2 birds 1 stone yada yada".  Sooooo this week's Kraftin Kimmie challenge is BACK TO SCHOOL, but for now this weeks Just Us Girls challenge is a photo inspiration (see the bottom of this post, or go here for the deets) so I took all of those school supplies and conjure up a pretty notebook!  This is one of those Composition Books, and while it wasn't hideous it certainly needed some prettying up 🙂 so I got down to business!   I wanted this to be uber-cute, but sturdy enough to handle hibernating in a backpack between uses, so there is nothing "popped up with Sticky Thumbs" (which was harder for me than you can possibly imagine!!!)  The "school rules" and those arrows are from the Silhouette Online Store.  That black & white zig-zag ribbon was the perfect finishing touch and it covers the edges beautifully!


The adorable little brain-iac is Lab Geek and she is another of my faves!


The sentiment on the tag is from Wonderland Sentiments, another fave.  I am soooo loving this notebook!  I told my boys I'd make them each one for school, they just looked at me and ran away… crazy boys! lol  Well that's all I've got for today, please be sure to visit my fellow JUGheads and my fellow Krafty girls!  Happy crafting 🙂

I couldn’t have picked a MORE inspiring image – I was SO excited, I nearly ate PASTE! {Noooooooooo, just kidding…} But it was TOTALLY fun! Thank you for being the all around darling girl, talented crafter and FABULOUS hostess! Uo[eee!
