Notebook for Espanol class


So, I am realizing that it is probably much easier to learn a foreign language when you are younger! My whole office is taking a Spanish class for the next six weeks, and with my southern accent, it just isn't very pretty! So, I made a notebook for my class that would work for my Cuttlebug Challenge which was to create a back to school set, gift set for a teen, for their locker, or for your desk, or a s a gift to someone. I figured if I didn't sound great speaking Spanish, I might as well look good taking my notes for class! The challenge at Cuttlebug Spot was to make something hot. Although, I've never been to Mexico, I know it would be quite hot (and you know this poor little dancer would have to be very hot under all those layers of ruffles!) I used my Life's a Beach cartridge to cut the sun and the letters (which I embossed with the new diamond plate folder). The cute image is from Mo's Digital Pencil. Finally, I used my Bind-it-all, which I am embarrassed to say, I have had for over a year, and this is the first time I have used it. It was just really intimidating to me - although, it really was not hard to use after I pulled it out today. Hopefully, I will use it much more now that I have figured it out a little bit.
