I noticed that Chalkboard Papers seem to be all the rage in the paper crafting world these days. Tim Holtz has a line and several other big brand name companies. I finally broke down an ordered a few elements of Prima's Optimist paper collection. Scrapbook.com had great prices.
This was one of those projects that started out great in my head, but felt flat on my drafting table.
The Theme was "Take Time to Note The Small Wonders in Life." I covered my note holder with vintage clocks themed paper. Sadly, the embellishments that seemed perfect in my head, did not work.

I used chalk to scribble the word Notes! When my new 6x6 pad comes in, I will remove the chalk paper and cut a piece that covers the entire front of the holder.
Inside is a nice post it pad and a place marker pad. There is also a chalkboard at the top.
