A Note for School

Today I thought I'd share a little project that I made a while back but didn't get around to posting.  It's a notebook suitable for "Back To School" or just as a notebook!!
The image is Schoolgirl Emma (with Pencil) by CC Designs, available at All That Scraps...great for "back to school", she is available without pencil too (surprise!).  I've coloured her with Copics then fussy cut her to sit on her little ribbon ledge.
I've altered a couple of these notebooks, Here is one of them.  They start life pretty plain with  a cute little pen attached, I "flatten" them out before I decorate them, it just seems to be easier that way...and I'm into "easy", lol. 
I covered this one with some scrapbooking paper, then added the bottom panel with paper from Kaisercrafts Class of '87, the ribbon is from my stash as is the little metal sticker.  One Stop Craft Challenge has Anything But a Square as its theme this time, this is not a square card...not square, not a card so I'm in!
The inside is covered with a panel of the scrapbooking paper, the scalloped border is from the Class of '87 paper and more of my dotty ribbon....that is basically it; told you it was easy!  Sundays With Chrissie want us to KISS (Keep It Simple Stamper) this month, lots of my cards are pretty simple...but they don't get much simpler than this, lol.
Creative Craft Challenges has Anything But a Card as its theme - no card here and Totally Gorjuss has As You Like It: definitely qualify there! Paperplay ChallengesTotally PapercraftsStamp SomethingJust Us Girls Challenges and  Allsorts Challenge all have Back to School...so I'm in, in, in, in and in!
That's it for today, I'll be back in a day or so, until then Happy Crafting, Dee

Gorgeous work you done on it, I am thinking, I need to go back to my school days when I used to cover my books with pretty pages, Attaching pen is such a unique idea.
