Inspired By #38

Not that I want to rush or anything but fall is just around the corner as is school start up for me so... I thought this would be a great inspiration photo.  Have to say though I do love fall so I am looking forward to it.

Inspiration options: apples, grid, colors, gingham, plaid, paper piecing, texture....

For my project I created a Back to School notebook for myself.  Always handy to have one just for jotting down ideas from staff meetings and such.  I have used a mixture of Jillibean Soup papers and elements (Grandma's Lima Bean, Winter Tortellini & Spinach, Soup Staples) and I cut the apple with my Cricut.  I have also used some May Arts Jute Twine and Printed Twill, don't you love that all of this is available at the Ribbon Carousel... including the collection pack - one stop shopping!  Finally, the small apple die that I used for the negative strip is from PTI and the tab die is from My Favorite Things.



I used Kimber's 2Peas sketch for the front of my notebook cover:


I can't wait to see what you do this week.
