Summer Falls Into Autumn GIBBS

Happy Thursday Everyone!

Today my post is an altered notebook. I really like doing this and intend to make them more often! I made this altered notebook for my partner on the Cricut Messageboard. The word was "Summer Falls into Autumn." She is a teacher, so I thought the computer generated saying "Summer Falls into Autumn, and then starts a new school year" fit perfectly in this situation.

I got a notebook from the dollar bin at Michael's, and covered it with cardstock, chalked it with dark brown cat's eye chalk ink. I created a pocket on the inside so she can store any papers inside, notes or whatever. I took a mini library clip from Stampin Up and put it on the side so it was easy to open, and hold anything important. I had a leaf punch that I used to cut the leaves on the sentiment. I used martha stewart fine glitter to add some bling. I tied ribbons on the side to dress it up a bit. I am very happy with my first try at this!

Please let me know what you think! I love comments and constructive criticism!
