Cut it Up Back to School Altered Notebook

CIU challenge blog

Time for another challenge at Cut it Up!  School is back in session in some places.  I’ve been back for two weeks now (maybe you can tell because I haven’t had time to post anything for two weeks!!)  My students come back on Sunday, and classes start on Monday.  It’ll be great to see them again and to see how much they’ve grown over the summer!  It always amazes me.  I teach middle schoolers, and I never notice them growing during the year because I see them every day, but I really notice when the new year starts!!

Our theme this time is altered notebooks for back to school.  I like to keep the notes from the meetings I go to all in one place, so every year I make a new notebook.  It’s just a composition book that I’ve fancied up to amuse myself!!  Here’s this year’s:

Isn’t he adorable??

Head on over to Cut it Up Challenges and check out all the great altered notebooks that the design team made for your inspiration, then make one of your own and link it up!  One lucky participant will win these prizes:

About Evelyn

I created this little blog so that I could have a place to show different crafts that I make for my family, my friends, my students, and myself! I have always enjoyed crafting. I particularly love paper, and that's what I'm currently working with.

    Hi Evelyn –
    This is the website we’ve used this year for our Humor Me Wednesday – Bizarre and humorous holidays –

    Kind of a great site because you can pick a month, it gives you the holidays by date AND in a lot of cases, it also gives you a link to ready more about some of the holidays.
    Thanks for visiting Bugaboo Stamps & The Bug Blog!
    Hugs & Happy Days!
