Before moving on to our next challenge I would like to say a sad farewell to our teamie Curt :-( Curt has stepped down from the team and we will all miss him terribly ,,, a fabulous team player !! We will miss you Curt xx We will however continue to stalk you :-)

The theme for the next 2 weeks is


We know most of the children are aready back in school but I am sure they all still need notebooks /diaries/clipboards etc :-)

I made a note book and I bought this cute Amanda Writes stamp specifically for this challenge ,, isn't she fab !! I saw this on a DT's blog ages ago ,,I can't remember who's tho and have had it at the top of my wish list ever since :-) ,, such a versatile stamp ! :-) i coloured the image with copics and inked the edges with Pumice Stone distress ink ,, I wanted a dirty used look :-) The papers are Basic Grey Craft and Manilla paper pads. I used a Martha Stewart border punch and a few buttons from my drawer ,, think those are Basic Grey too ? The little school bus charm was a gift from Mary and America to welcome me to the team :-) thanks girls xx

I also made a couple of post-it noteholders while I was at it :-) For these I followed Leann's lovely simple sketch on the Cute Card Thurdsay Challenge :-)
