So school wouldn't be complete without notebooks.  I love my Cinch and try to use it as much as I can.  I have seen on the internet of people using boxes from cereal, soda, etc. so naturally I wanted to give that a try.  A great way to recycle.  I will be sending some of these notebooks to my cousin so I hope she likes them.

I used my Cinch along with the 3 quarter inch wire.  Obviously the book covers came from Mountain Dew 12 pack.

My blog candy...because I am in 2 hops back to back (this one and First Day Of Autumn from Friday) I'm combining all comments together and picking one winner to receive a $20 gift card of their choice to either Michaels, Joanns or Hobby Lobby.  To win simply leave a comment with a way to reach you.  Extra entries if you become a friend on my blog and Facebook as well as commenting on both hops.  I will use Random. org and announce the winner on Tuesday, September 27th.

Thank you so much for hopping by and a huge thank you to Lisa at My Amusing Life for allowing me to be a hop stop.

Your next stop is Jessica at ScrappyLuvs.
