Washington Redskins Notebook

Hi everybody!  Today I'm sharing a Redskins notebook I made that I'm going to enter into Challenge #39 over at Die Cuttin' Diva's which is to make a project that is football themed.  I will also be entering it into Challenge #59 at Paper Playtime which is Anything Goes.  My family and I are big Washington Redskin fans so when I saw this paper at Jo-Ann Fabrics I had to buy it!  I cut the football from the 3 Birds on Parade Cricut cartridge.  I learned how to make the notebook from THIS tutorial.  Thanks for looking and have a great day!  :)
