All Decked Out for School

Hello, crafty friends.  I have a post on the 3 Girl JAM blog today.  the 3 Girl JAM challenge blog has a School themed challenge happening right now, so I decided to get in the spirit of things and alter a notebook that any kid would love to take to school. I started with a basic notebook, on sale, 5 for $1.00 (whoot!) and took it from there:
I used ribbon and flair buttons from the 3 Girl JAM store.  Ribbons are from the Celebrations bundle (Tuxedo Black), the Harvest Bundle (Sunflower), and the Winter Bundle (Holly Berry).  The flair buttons are a sneak peak and will be available shortly in the store, along with some other fun ones you WON'T want to miss!
Designer papers are My Mind's Eye 'On the Sunny Side' 12x12. The hopscotch game and printables are from The Cutting Café and can be found HERE.  I used stamps from Fancy Pants, "The Good Life", and Close To My Heart ( a retired set) to make the bicycle with borders and apple with borders pieces.
Here's a close up of one of the new, fun flair buttons available soon:
Create your own "back to school" project, and link up over at the 3 Girl JAM challenge blog. I'd love to see what you make!
