Template day!

The challenge this week at Just Us Girls is a template challenge and Paper Sundaes is a 'Back to School' challenge, I decided to combine the two with some Cutting Cafe templates and PTI stamps.  For the notepad I used the Line Paper Note Pad Set, along with the Jot it Down.  The apples and the word are from PTI.  The pencil box is also a Cutting Cafe template called, imagine this, The Pencil Box Template, which I again decorated with some PTI sets.  I thought this would make a cute teacher gift on the first day of school.


While making the notebook set I had an idea for making something for Danica too so I used The Cutting Cafe template called Tabbed Organizer along with some My Grafico paper (love it, no needing to hoard, just keep printing it off).  To make the tab pages more sturdy I recycled some cereal boxes and covered them with paper, which make this project and the next one fit the Fab 'N' Funky challenge



Then I decided to make her a little box to hold some of her goodies so I found this box laying around.



Covered the top with some more paper and voila! 

Here is the set together - Danica said 'cool' and now has them displayed in her room.
