Paper Sweeties January Release

Hi!

It's Day 3 of the Paper Sweeties January Release and the stamps are officially in the store ready to add to your shopping carts!!! Today I used the stand add-on, but I am showcasing it in a different way! 
My son was so excited when I finished this project that he requested these for all his teachers! As you can obviously see, I created a school house on the cover of my mini legal pad complete with matching pen. 
The Inside
The roof, windows, door, and flag were all fussy cut to build my school house. I used colored pencils and mineral spirits for the door. The roof was was embossed for added texture although I am unable to get that to show up in the photograph.

Finishing touches include buttons, twine and a ribbon tab.

The School Days sentiment is from the Boutique line So Proud of You.
