Cut It Up #26: Altered notebook

Can you believe that August is almost over?  It is also a sad time for me because after being home for a year with my darling children and my now almost 1 year old daughter, it is time for me to return to work.  Mommy may cry....
On a side note, today is my baby sister's wedding.  She is marrying an amazing man and their wedding is on PEI.  Congrats Katherine & Devon!!! My children are in the wedding and I cannot wait to see them dressed up all fancy.
Today is my last challenge post with Cut It Up.  I have been with this fabulous group of ladies since it's beginning last September and thought it was time to allow another individual to be part of this amazing Design Team.  I will miss by Design Team sisters and thank them for their support and crafting friendship over this past year!
Today our challenge at Cut It Up Challenges is Back To School. You are to make an altered notebook for your project and don't forget the die cut!
Since I am a music teacher, I made one for myself.  But don't worry, I wasn't too greedy! I also made 2 more, 1 for another music teacher friend of mine and another for a musical cousin in my life.
I absolutely love how it turned out (better than I expected) and loved the way all the colors blended together so nicely.

This challenge starts today, August 23rd and ends September 4th, 2013 at Noon, EST.

  2. The colors do look great together, and I love the violin shape. Have you ever checked out the Quarter Note cartridge? It would be perfect for you, and it's an older one, so you may be able to get it for a good price.
    Thank you for all your creativity, Anita. We will miss you!!
