Altered Notebook

This fortnight's challenge at 7 Kids College Fund is Monochromatic. Well a challenge for me, and I love a challenge, but then I thought about it and said hey why not make the Principal a book, She is always writing in a notebook and why not make her a special one for her birthday. Since the spine of the book is already brown, I went with browns. ..So here is my rendition of the 7 Kids College Funds Monochromatic Theme. I used Congragulations Tilda that you can find HERE.

Another Angle:
