Altered Fall Notebook

Howdy Crafters:
 I have so been so into altering notebooks lately - this time of year notebooks are not expensive - costing as low as 17 cents each up to 50 cents each.

I altered this Composition notebook
using a Fall Theme - I have so many old and unused craft items in my craft-room - so I took advantage of that when altering this notebook.
Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed day! ~ Gail~
