Lemons & lemonade, scraps & . . . scrap-ade?

During a trip to the big box store, I picked up a pack of small notepads.
They have been sitting on the shelf waiting to be transformed . . . and waiting
. . . . and waiting.

While going through my stash of Halloween scraps I had a moment of candy corn, cob webs and spooky spells inspiration.  {*grin*}

Spooky cute notepads!


I ruffled some Halloween fabric and fired up the glue gun.
Then, I added a strip of coordinating ribbon to cover the stiches.


Using my ribbon stash {have I said I love ribbon?  um, I LOVE ribbon - ok, moving on},
With the help and guidance of my sweet girl and craft buddy, Alex, I made some sweet bows and added a few buttons and charms.

Scrappy, spooky, sweet gifts for some of my favorite teachers!


I just wanted to share this too - - -

As my honey was walking through the door he mentioned what a beautiful sunset 
we were having outside.

It was gorgeous!  I snapped a few shots to share with you.



I hope you have a festive fall week everyone!

Oh, what a stunning sunset! We try to catch those on film all the time--we never get tired of that sight!

Love your altered notebooks--they're just wonderful!

Hope you're having a lovely night...
