It's Back to School with Angels Landing

Is there a cat lover in your life who is going back to school? A teacher, a student or maybe even yourself?? For this week's Design Team focus, the Angels Landing team is focusing on Back to School altered items. Everyone needs a notebook! I took at basic composition notebook and altered it by using Mod Podge to adhere this yummy glittered paper from Doodlebug Designs. I added some DSP from K&Company as a backdrop to this cute little cat and kitten from the latest Angels Landing release. Colored with my (ahem) borrowed copics!
The pencil box is another cheapo find (49 cents!) that I altered in much the same way, adding another image from the latest set, this little kitty!
I love this glittered paper, and love the way the kitties are sitting on the DSP, almost like a little carpet. I would love to give this to my daughter, but I am not sure she would take it to college with her....maybe....
Do you have anyone in your life going back to school, or are you a teacher or student yourself? I would love to hear what you would alter as a school item! Be sure to check out all the Design Team members for their ideas and inspiration!

Lauri, looks like we were thinking alike and I almost used the Kitties digi stamp set too! Love the bright colors you used on the pencil holder and notebook. This is a perfect gift for a cat lover as well as someone going back to school.

I don't have any little ones --- or big ones --- heading back to school, but it is fun to see the big yellow school buses return to our country road. This is a very cute set for the big day!
