Back to school

I can't believe September is already here and school started again. Where did the time go?! I sure wouldn't mind another month of summer - lovely sunny days, lots of free time ... But I will admit that fall has its charms too. ;)

The challege we have prepared for you at Yumi and Fumi Handmade this time is perfect for this time of year, as the theme is "back to school". I know that when I was a little girl I could never have enough of pretty notepads which I could then use in school so when I saw this challenge I knew exactly what I would do - alter one of those yucky boring grey notepads. 

And this is what this same notepad looks now.

What do you think? Do you like it? I hope you do! I only used scraps of papers to decorate this pad. Also, as you can see, I didn't use any other embellishments except some ribbon because I wanted the image to stand out. I used the distress inks to color Yumi and I also added some glitter glue on her top (heart).

I'd love to see your "back o shcool" projects so I hope you will come and play with us! Remember, you do NOT need to use Yumi and Fumi Handmade image to enter the challenge, although of course we'd love it if you did. ;)

I'd liketo enter my notepad to the following challenges:
Wags 'n Whiskers: Anything goes
Really reasonable ribbon: Back to school + ribbon
The crafting cafe: Altered art
Scrap it girl: Back to school
ABC challenge: U for unlimited

Have a wonderful week!
Hugs! xx
