Day 5 GIU Gal - School Days NotePad and Pencil

Hey All,

Hope you are having a wonderful morning or your day is going good. Well today is Day 5, Yep, my last day for Growing In Unity Gal Guest Designer comes to an end. So sad to go but hopefully I will be back again some day. I had such a great time sharing my creations with you all and reading your comments. 😁

As I had said previously Jennifer had sent me a few Unity stamps so I could play along during my week. Well I had received a pencil stamp and wanted to use it but just couldn't think of what to do. My crafty friend Kim had suggested a few things that were just cute but didn't quite workout like I wanted so decided on something a little different, hope you like it.

The Unity Stamp is Good Luck Pencil I just thought this was so cute. With school in session, I thought what a cute idea to send a teacher a notepad. Something she or he could use during the school year.
So here it is. The pencil is so cute, right? And How do you like the little pun? lol
I used yellow card stock, Tim Holtz markers wild honey and barn door 
and from my stash a dark brown marker with silver Liquid pearls to 
make the silver part of the pencil. 

Here is the full view of the notepad. I had the note pads in my stash I had 
bought many years ago from dollar store. I used card stock to wrap them and layered with 
Graphic 45 An ABC Primer Collection. I thought it would be a great paper to go with the
pencil stamp.
