Best Teacher

It's Thursday, and time for a new challenge at Delightful Challenges.  This week's theme is School Daze. With many schools already back in session, or, here in Wisconsin, heading back after Labor Day, school is on many people's minds.
One of my staff, who has worked for me for 8 years, has also worked her way through college.  She was just hired to teach 4 year old kindergarten.  She will be moving about 3 hours away.  However, she likes the job and the residents so much that she still plans on working every other Saturday.  In honor of her and her new career, I made her a notebook to take to the classroom with her:

This notebook uses several delightful Digital Delights by Louby Loo products:  Scholar Myrtle, School Digital Paper Pack, and the School Sentiments Pack.

Here's a closeup of Scholar Myrtle, colored with Copic Markers...

Oh my, she looks studious, doesn't she? And that pencil background paper from the School Digital Paper Pack works beautifully with the theme.
Some 3 Girl JAM ribbon tied along the binding, and some UmWow Studio chipboard, covered with Stickles finished this School Daze themed notebook.
Our sponsor for this week's challenge is:

 Play along for your chance at the $10 voucher!
