Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Back to School

This week it's Linda's turn to choose the theme of the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge, which is:

'Back to School'

Our sponsor for this challenge is:

The prize is a $10 voucher to spend in the Digi Doodles store!

I'm a music teacher, so it's back to school for me too...and I've made myself a little notebook to help me keep track of all the pieces that pupils and people in the the various ensembles I teach/conduct have requested, so that I remember to arrange them for them! The image is 'Toot the Flute' by Penny Black, which I cooured using watercolour pencils. The spotty paper is from the 'Festive Frost' by My Mind's Eye, and I made the musical paper by stamping a Hero Arts background stamp in 'Tea Dye' Distress Ink on the reverse of a piece of My Mind's Eye '29th Street Market' paper. I distressed all of the edges, with my distressing tool, and more 'Tea Dye' ink, then added some adhesive pearls, and lettering cut using my Cuttlebug 'Olivia' alphabet.

I'm also entering this notebook into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge.
