Hi Everyone

I am starting on the presents for my children's teachers for Christmas.  I decided to start with this notebook for my Daughter's Teacher.

I fell in love with this Apple Hat Kid Image from Lemon Shortbread.  Teachers are always associated with Apple so thought this was perfect!   I coloured the image using ProMarkers and covered the Hat with Diamond Sparkles Candy Floss Glitter.
I have made the covers from 2mm white board and the Base/Frame Layer is a Bazzill Basics Rad Shade.  The ABC/123 Paper is from the Tilly Daydream Paper Pack.  The back is covered in a paper from this pack too.  I wanted to make it personal so I typed the sentiment on the computer and printed it off.  The Apple Die cuts are a Poppystamps die and I cut one in red and one in green.  I added an Apple Charm to the hinge and this actually says NO.1 Teacher on it although it is hard to see this in the pic.  I used a leaf die and decorated this with some Red Paper Flowers.  I popped on a Red Bow and finished with Pearl Gems.

I had so much fun making this that I need to make another one lol!  Got 3 Teachers and 3 Teaching assistants to make gifts for so look out for more of these in the future!

I would like to enter this Note Book into the following Challenges

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and share this Note Book with me.  I have other ideas floating around in my head for teacher gifts so please do come back and look out for these!!  Please leave me a comment to let me know what you think.  Hope to see you again soon.
