Smarticle Particles

This is for TGF's Farm Fresh Friday Back to School challenge.  I decided to make a note holder to use as a teacher gift.  The dimensions are 4x6.5". 
I used a base of Very Vanilla with layers of Bo Bunny Shabby Princess Pep Rally papers and Recollections midnight blue.  The border punch is from EK Success.  The chalk board is made from the Tim Holtz movers and shapers die in kraft and basic black.  I used a craft knife to make scores and swirls in the kraft paper, then inked to give it a slight wood grain texture, inking the edges in Tim Holtz Tea Dye and Vintage Photo distress inks.  The writing on the "chalkboard" is a white chalk ink pen.  The gem apple is from Swarovski self adhesive crystals images I found on clearance at Michaels.  The image is TGF's Cheeky Geeky, colored in copic and paper pieced with coordinating Bo Bunny.  I used Clear Stardust gel pen on her glasses, then used liquid glass on the lenses.  The last touch is pearl earrings before mounting her with dimensionals. 
Inside, is coordinating Bo Bunny paper and a sticker from Bo Bunny's Back to School cardstock sticker set and a 3x3 pad of post-it notes.  Thanks for looking!  April
closed for giving
