A back to school notebook for Divas by Design

Good morning folks! This is my 2nd post today, for My Creative inspirations GDT please scroll down..
Over at Divas by Design today we are making back to school projects and are sponsored by the fab crafty sentiments. Today it's unusually quiet in my house as all 3 of mine are at school, the girls went back yesterday but today was my son's very first day!
For my back to school project I decided to alter a notebook using a fab little Magnolia Tilda that I have had for ages!

My papers are from my stash and some are Bo bunny don't know about the rest! My ticket is Tim Holtz with a 7 gypsies sentiment, The "reach" tag is wild asparagus, another one I have had in the stash for an age! My lace is Kaiserkraft and my fab flower is Prima with my ribbon and pears coming from stash. My fab embroidered butterflies are little snippets.

I have coloured my image with prisma pencils and edged in vintage photo.

I am also entering this into Theres magic in the air back 2 school, Totally papercrafts not a card, Crazy for challenges back 2 school, Totally Tilda back 2 school, Simply create school and come and get it challenges back 2 school.

Here is my little boy off for his first day this morning!

And here are the entire rabble all ready for the off! I can't miss him too much today I still get to pick him up at 12 as he is in the settling in period!
I hope you can join us in our challenge and check out the amazing work by my fab teamies, there are some stunners on the challenge blog!
Big hugs and thanks for coming by

Hi Rebekah, love the notebook - it's so cute! As is your family, they are all gorgeous children! Didn't really realise that your little boy must be the same age as my Emily, as he's off to school for the first time. So far, so good in our house - although she forgot her homework yesterday, I wonder if that might be a trend starting!!!! Sarah
