Book Ants for the Teacher

Hope your Monday is going great!  I squeezed in some craft time so my Monday is great now!! =)  I made a teacher project with the Book Ants from Doodle Pantry.  They are being offered in color this month.  The sentiment is also from the set and is a little hard to read, it says "For my teacher".  The "T" is covered by the apple charm and I didn't notice until after I uploaded the picture.  This little pad is about 5 inches tall and 3 inches wide.  I purchased it from Michaels from the $1. bins. 
                            This is the pad without the new front.  The deer is in orange.  Yuck, who would purchase that?  Me so I can cover it up. =)

                                            I would like to submit this project into these challenges:
Feeling Sketchy - Sketch
Tammy's Scrapin' Corner - Bling
The Pink Elephant - Ribbon galore
Crazy 4 Challenges - For the teacher
Raise The Bar - Back to school
Dutch Dare - Anything but a card
Sarah Hurley - Alter something
Ruby's Rainbow - Anything but a card
The Crafty Pad - Metal (charm and safety pin)
Thanks for stopping by and hope the rest of your day goes great!
